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

Everything seems there but see when i shh to /var/mobile/Downloads via winSCP it starts with Private/var/mobile/Downloads is that ment to change to private?
Wat am i missing cos su alpine ipl2iph not workin for me niether is there anything i have missed prior to this i have mxtube with downloads in it! and im refreshing iplayer page to download so wat gives?
Also wen i go into iplayer its asking me to either download or play in Mediaplayer Index.html is that ment to be like thisi cant see the little blue play button because of this!

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

I was wondering how to get the BBC in the iphone, but I only got 2 option eithe WMP and or Real player but no quicktime. Suggestion anyone? Iplayer?
10-27-2008, 04:39 AM #18
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.

Edit: I have one of our techy guys at work helping me with this now. Once i figure out how it all works i will put some instructions up for the not-so-technical users (like me)
