    So is it just a matter of adding the web addy to my favourites and watching via Safari or is it something else i need to do?

    i thought it would be a downloadable app, still quite happy.

    my favourite radio station, 1xtra, is only a podcast not live

    any idea when we will be able to stream online radio stations on the iphone??

    Im having problems when i get to iPhone3G:/usr/bin root # -d /var/mobile/Downloads - f b00803f0.mov

    sh: -d: command not found


    Done everything up to this! Its like its not finding the downloads folder?? In saying that when shh to var/mobile there is no downloads folder. My MxTube files seem to be going in private/var/mobile/Media/MxTube any ideas ?? im a bit frustrated cause ive done config ruby and installed everything, Mx tube had downloads in it dont see whats wrong.

    looks like something has gone a little screwy with you ...

    script should check for the download folder and create if required.

    So in your case just make the directory /var/mobile/Downloads and set permissions of 777 recursive

    I was keeping the bbc and mxtube directories separate on purpose....

    also check that iplayer-dl is in /usr/bin

    sounds like you've got the safari download plugin activated as well.

    disable it with boss prefs - and try again

    iplayer doesn't play ball with the download plugin

    run boss prefs fix user dirs option

    check that ipl2iph & iplayer-dl is set to 777 permissions

    Gotta try this out. I think it can work with proxies or something? Would need UK based proxies i guess.

    sorry if i'm misunderstanding but to get it on the iphone you just go to the iplayer website and it automatically redirects you to the mobile version of the site. it works really good, im based in the uk.

    THeres also scripts available to download the content to your phone for later viewing.
