How cool is this?

If you point your Pocket IE (PIE!) at mms://streaming.capitalinteractive.co.uk/fm-low, you can listen to Capital FM via media player.

Of course it would work for other Windows Media streams too.

Great for us ex-londoners to listen to our old fave radio station.

Great way to blow your GPRS limit too I expect :shock:

It looks like BBCR1 etc. use a Real G2 stream and not WMP, so they won't work on the SPV...

Hi there...

Erm.... what was that about CRAPital FM? I used to listen to that between the ages of 10-14... then I got into Nirvana, and more alternative music...and realised that songs actually had a beginning..... and an end...... and even sometimes a middle! Up until that point, I'd only ever heard snippets of songs between the Phatheaded-egominded-DJs on there!


The streaming media thing would be useful, as my ex is dragging me off to a £94 a night hotel over new year, and I was really rather hoping to listen to the 2002-03 Tranceparty broadcast (basically a 10 hour non-stop trance radio broadcast celebrating all the newyears round the world)....

I just wonder if KFCnetworks ( http://www.kfcnetworks.com ) will be running the Tranceparty under a windows media stream? .... and I kinda thing that will screw up my 10MB a month bandwidth on the very first DAY of the month!!!

but if you read the article on the register you'd notice they reckon orange dont have a method of checking how much you (ab)use it by.

And... Since WMP streaming can be done on 56k, that makes it about 4k per second max,
which makes a minute 240k
which make 10Mb 40 minutes. Oh Dear.

still, 40 minues of trance would do my head in!!! I'd rather listen to the g/f!!!

sorry funky, j/k!

Has anyone got any other URLS for streaming radio? The above one for capital I cannot get to work on SPV or on my normal laptop.
I can't figure out how to enter an "_" on the SPV so can't get onto Radio1

check out www.digitallyimported.com if youv'e got a good signal you can stream the 56k down no problem, if your below 2 bars i suggets you go with the cell stream!

DI is more of a dance/trance station.

To search for every possible music taste goto http://yp.shoutcast.com, they used to only stream mp3 (i'm not sure if this works in media player). But if you click on the link to the website (Then each site will probably have windows media as an alternative)

Of Course, if you do use streaming media you are going to use up your 10Mb limit that orange have set on their 'unlimited' GPRS. Then cost you £7.50 per Mb downloaded. Since I got my phone the day after release I used the streaming media every day until I found out about the 10 mb, and now have no idea how much it will cost me this month (going to complain a lot if I get charged)

When I was in the Orange shop getting mine the guy said 10MB would give you loads of downloads. You can just pleed ignorant and say you presumed it would not use up the 10M allocated.

I'd imagine that they'd have to tell you when you've reached your limited, though we'll have to wait and see...

I doubt they would tell you - they don't tell you when you inclusive calls have finished so expect they would not tell you when your inclusive GRPS is finished - much easier for them to make money that way.

Hmmmm.... yeah see your point, but there are a few differences:
You know your call limit - the 10Mb cap hasn't been advertised.
You know the cost if you go over your limit. What cost is it over 10Mb. A couple
You can easily check your number of calls made, either on your phone or by calling 150.


then again, you've no way of checking bhow many inclusive texts you've sent...

Oh well I guess we'll have to wait and see...

I do agree that they should tell you just saying they may well not.

The problem with the GPRS package is doing different things uses different rates so with free call minutes you know you have been on the phone X minutes where as you could have used messager for 10 hours but have no idea how much bandwidth you have used.
