    Streaming media ?

    Advertisement



    Are their phones out that will stream media. Why would not the Pearl do this? Will the Blackjack do this and what others will? Someone said some of the flip phones do this.

    Thanks Joe

    I think most new verizon wireless phones have this feature because they have something in their plan that enables this. I'm not positive this is right so someone please confirm or correct this. Also I think the blackjack can do this to but again I'm not sure. I've heard something about this somewhere but it was a while ago and not 100% sure.

    Hope this helps,

    When u talk of pearl, I just think its a software issue which means its either they update it and allow us to do that or some 3rd party appl. comes out.

    I think there is a new or actually soon to be released site that you can access from your bb and then it will allow streaming video like youtube and google video from your phone. I read about this about 4 weeks ago and don't know any updates about it. I will search something and see what comes up then I'll post what I read.

    Sona Mobile is going to soon release a streaming video app for bb's and will allow us to view Pay-per-view movies, mobile tv, and other videos on through this app. Here is a link to the full review and announcement of the BBTV (which is what the app is called). It is much like mobiTV but for bb's. So here is the link:

    There was actually a different app that I saw a while ago but can't seem to find it or remember what it was called. But here is a great app that is soon to release.

    Hope you like,

    Yup and hopefully it will come out soon. I didn't read a lot about it so I'm not sure when its coming out or if it will cost money but either way it will be tight.

    Re: Streaming media ?

    mfradio actually works. downloaded it OTA, typed in a 24k stream address, and it worked. miraculous. unlike radiobee, which i could never get to work.

    it's far from perfect - lots of buffering problems, but it's getting there. anyone know how to change the options to increase the buffer size, for example?
