Thread: Goodbye Starplayr
03-09-2009, 02:41 AM #1
It was a nice dream. Sirius XM satellite radio on the iPhone via the App Store. Unfortunately after StarPlayr was submitted to the App Store it was never able to make it through (presumably some Sirius XM pressure was behind the denial). Now StarPlayr is officially done for good.
What have we learned? If you have something cool going on many different platforms and haven't had legal troubles from companies like Sirius XM then by all means DO NOT progress what you are doing to the iPhone. It appears that the move towards iPhone awesomeness caught a little bit too much attention (in the wrong way) from Sirius XM. StarPlayr has been enjoyed by many on their Macs and Windows Mobiles; further enjoyment by many more will never come to fruition.
While NiceMac doesn't come out and say directly that Sirius XM has shut them down it wouldn't be a stretch.

fStream from the iPhone app store (free)
the free web server that is availble on any windows OS.
its just a simple .asp redirect. takes about 10 minuntes to setup. i have been doing this for awhile and i can listen without interuption or breaks for hours (with an occasional recharge of course). I have posted the code on these forums before.
a side note, millard software has removed uSirius. the site owner (Jason) was one of the four developers of starplayer. of course, if you have still have the software, it still works.

Wise guy - ALL uSirius apps will stop working on the 10th. They are shutting down their intermediate servers.

No, after March 10th you will have to pay for online listening, unless you have the lifetime subscription, at the end of your current contract.
If you log in now a box will pop up asking you to extend your subscription and they will give you free online listening until the end of your new subscription term.
