    I am going to purchase it, but I won't be home for a few hours. I'll post my impressions later.

    Hey all... we are working hard on a few of the reported issues for CorePlayer on Palm we just released and will notify the users of the update availability when its ready.

    1.0.2 PALM ISSUES
    ----------------------------
    - Buffering issue is causing slowdown on some videos (mostly ASP atm)
    - Some JPG pictures have artifacts
    - Serial # input crash: Fix is to Remove, reboot, reinstall....

    Is .wma/.asx streaming supported?
    Palm III > HS Visor > Treo 600 > Treo 650 > Treo 750 > Treo Pro > PrePlus GSM

    Here are my impressions so far:

    1) Looks nicer than TCPMP.
    2) Playing MP3 and WMA works fine (only formats currently on my SD Card).
    3) Was able to stream MP3 from .pls and .asx files.
    4) Apparently does not support streaming in Windows Media format (that was what I wanted more than just about anything else).
    5) Won't play in the background (An absolute must on a Palm device, hopefully later).
    6) Opening a URL requires typing the dang thing in every time (in other words, no caching of previous URLs).
    7) No bookmarks or playlist support.
    8) When starting a stream, no feedback about the progress (like "connecting," "buffering," etc.
    9) Occasional "skippy-ness" when playing .WMA format with SAG. MP3 was OK.

    If I think of anything else, I'll post later.

    All these issues are extremely important to me as well, I might not purchase it until it gets updated.... Thanks so much for the mini review

    Buyer beware. Thanks for the update. I cannot purchase a product that "might" have streaming WMA in the background (if they even promise that?) in a "future release". I'm not sure how this beats Kinoma+pTunes without those features.

    Understandable. I took a chance, because I believe in what they are trying to do, and because they have been working pretty hard to accomplish it. I'm a software engineer, so I'm a little more forgiving that some have been on this forum.

    I have to say that I am just as disappointed that pTunes doesn't stream WMA, and perhaps never will. I actually have more hope that CoreCodec will in the near future. I'm not sure why WMA streaming is so hard, but I assume that it is either prohibitive because of licensing or it is just real hard to do on the Palm platform. BTW, I do know that MP3 streaming is a piece of cake if you have an MP3 decoder already.

    I have not done any testing of the Video codecs, but I have always been impressed by the number of formats supported by TCPMP. I am a little more hopeful than you that eventually they will get it right. And by "right," I mean that I will only need 1 media player on PalmOS with a great interface, that supports all the CoreCodec formats, plays in the background, and streams WMA (cause some of my favorite radio stations only support that format).

    Coming from someone who does not alread own ptunes dlx, I purchased coreplayer and rather like it. I find the chatter skipping issues to be a lot better with coreplayer than with ptunes, and the streaming stuff is nice.

    Even if the app isn't "awesome" at v1.0, I think it is still as good or better than ptunes, and it will only get better. When was the last time ptunes added a significant feature? And anyway, I think the entire community has benefited from TCPMP, and buying CorePlayer is my way of saying thanks.

    They are definitely working on WMA (asx, etc) streaming and plan to have it our by version 1.5.
    I will not even consider buying this until there is background play. I'll stick with PocketTunes for audio and TCPMP for video until then.

    If anyone wants me to try a particular URL, I will type it in and see if it works (unless of course I get overwhelmed with requests :-) ).
