Default Sirius Radio Stream On Blackberry Works..check It Out.

i have finally found a way to stream howard stern on my blackberry pearl...it works...i found this on howardforms.com lg voyager thread..same concept used for the lg voyager works on my blackberry. check it out...here are the instructions and all the downloads needed.





I figured it'd be nice to share this, considering the potential it has for using the Voyager as a streaming media device.

Credit goes to brittt1, (the tutorial creator), and others that discovered this trick over on the everythingicafe.com forums. I merely adapted the procedure (on the Orb side) to work with the Voyager. Also, credit goes to the sole poster who hinted at the fact that this might be possible on one of the Voyager threads.

This should also work with any other phone that can handle RTSP streams natively, so experiment away. It should also work with video streams as well, provided the computer acting as a server can handle the load of transcoding and serving video. (I have not tried this yet)

The tutorial below is aimed towards Sirius on the Voyager, but if you have XM, simply download/install uXM instead of uSirius. Both programs are made by the same author. If you don't have either, you can still listen to your favorite online/internet radio station by looking for the station's 'listen live' link, and adding it to Orb.

In short, to accomplish streaming just about any type of Internet Radio feed to the Voyager you need:

(1) an always-on PC, connected to the Internet via DSL/Cable/FIOS or any other similar high-speed connection
(2) install Orb on (1)
(3) install uSirius and/or /uXM on (1) depending on what you subscribe to (optional for streaming XM/Sirius)

The basics of how this works is that Orb transcodes any Internet Radio feed and serves it in a format that can be played with your Voyager. (or PDA, etc)

The tutorial below hopefully explains the procedure in enough detail so that anyone interested can accomplish the same as I have.

Tutorial link (same document, just 2 mirrors):
http://rapidshare.com/files/7188567...oyager.doc.html
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=4W8XETQ5

Enjoy guys (and girls!)

Note 1: Your mycast.orb.com page on the Voyager will only show two streams by default (of any category). You can change this by going to 'Edit Content' and adjusting accordingly by changing the number 2 to any other higher number.

Important:
Note 2: To fix the 30 second issue both for m.youtube.com and this, call VZW CS and ask them for the temporary streaming video fix as described in this thread: http://howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=1281933

Note 3: I didn't bother to fix the tutorial from its original form much if at all, except the last part, but safe to say, use it as a reference, and not as a bible. (links to download software might be outdated, etc) Download the latest versions of the software for Orb and uSirius/uXM.

Edit:
Second to last paragraph of tutorial should read:
'For any other Internet Radio source, putting the mms/rtsp/http link of its 'listen live' page will work, and no other program besides Orb is necessary.'
I forgot to finish writing that when I uploaded it, heh.

One last thing, if the speed at the bottom of the mycast.orb.com page reads 0kb/sec, you can set the speed manually to any of the values in the bottom if you're having trouble loading the streams. Oh, and don't even think of trying this without having VCAST VPak... you'll be very surprised when your bill comes in, if so.

Would this work for the Sprint BB curve too?

That workaround has been around for a while. Streaming to a Blackberry is a battery killer. It was not really designed to handle that sort of task.

I can't get the final step to work, just a black screen. Thoughts?
