    Are you able to stream video, such as youtube.com, on the 680 with Kinoma Player?

    You can stream video in WMV format (Windows Media). YouTube uses an embedded Flash video player which isn't compatible with the 680, but the Kinoma Player 4 EX product claims to be able to handle that format. See http://www.kinoma.com/index/player4 for details.

    Thanks for the link, has anyone been able to use Kinoma player successfully on the 680? Just wanted to know because streaming video is one of the reasons I was going to wait for the 750. But I think i will get a 680.

    I'm struggling with the streaming video option. I have not really succeeded. The browser doesn't recognize some streaming video (like CNN comes up with a warning that I don't have WMP but could download it if I want to. Other sites I just get "unknown format" and others "insufficient bandwidth." Not much luck anywhere yet...

    I tested video streaming on the 680 using the MSDN Channel 9 site at http://channel9.msdn.com/. Depending on how the site embeds video, Blazer may or may not be able to direct the stream over to the embedded Kinoma player; plugins often won't work, while a simple link to a stream will. Popups that try to detect what video types you can handle are problematic.
