    I'm streaming http://di.fm/mp3/trance128k.pls here quite happily! No dropouts yet in 5+ mins of listening.

    UPDATE: Pah! PocketTunes says it's 96k anyway!

    With music, it's all about a consistent connection... cuz audio dropouts while you're grooving to the beat are a drag. (With web surfing or email data transfer it's much less of an issue.)

    And so I think a lot of it has to do with your area and how strong your signal is... for some folks 96k or even 128k will work fine. For others, 56k and below are the only one that will play without any dropouts.

    Please let me know what "search" you’re referring to. Is this in the mobile or desktop site...is this the shoutcast search or the website search?

    How do you set the bit rate on Pocket Tunes, I do not see it in the preferences?

    Thanks!

    It's not withing Ptunes. People are referring to the bit rates of the streams in question. You have to search for a particular stream and see what its bit rate is and then add it to your Ptunes shoutcast playlist...

    Before I read this thread, I didn't know what Shoutcast was and didn't see a need for Pocket Tunes.

    I've now downloaded Pocket Tunes, used the Treobits page of Shoutcast links, and set up my bookmarks of my favorite stations.

    Live streaming NPR on my phone! Unbelievable.

    (Thanks, you guys!)

    Careful, streaming audio at high bitrates uses a LOT of data, as shown here! Although FWIW I've never been bothered by Sprint for doing this.

    Regarding streaming you can also stream Live365 stations to the 650 (and 600 for that matter). It's not as straight forward as Shoutcast but can be done. First you have to listen to the Live365 in WinAmp on your desktop PC. Then while the stream is playing, save the m3u playlist. Then copy the saved playlist file to your SD card. Put the SD card in your 650 and in pTunes do an open on the playlist. For this to work you have to be using the new beta version of pTunes. Works great. There are alot more Live365 stations I listen to than Shoutcast, so I was very happy to see this work.

    Is it possible to stream San Francisco KQED? -- it streams in RealPlayer, QuickTime, and Windows Media formats. If so, what URL do you go to in Blazer?

    Thanks for your help!

    Try opening the RealPlayer stream directly from Blazer, it should launch PocketTunes.

    Thanks, xenophonite. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get it to work.

    Here's what I tried:
    1. From Blazer, went to http://www.kqed.org/radio
    2. Clicked the "listen live" link
    3. Page has choices for RealPlayer, QuickTime, or Windows Media. I chose RealPlayer and then clicked Continue.
    4. The resulting page looks like some kind of error page; the URL is http://www.kqed.org/servlets/playerD...e_real&x=0&y=0

    5. So...from my desktop machine, I repeat the same steps, and see that the URL for the RealPlayer stream is http://www.kqed.org/w/streamingfiles/kqed_real.ram
    6. I enter that URL into Blazer, click Yes in the Download Warning dialog, and the resulting window says "Your device does not support this filetype. Do you want to download to your card?" I don't yet have a card, so does that mean I can't stream KQED until I get one?

    Does Sprint's network vary in capacity from city to city? I live in Houston, btw. Some of you are reporting you aren't having any trouble listening to 96kb streams. There is a 56kb stream I'm trying to listen to that constantly buffers.

    This is a network issue and not a station issue, correct? I can listen to the stream uninterrupted on my computer.

    I think it location/network related. I don't always get 96kbps. Also if you are running other internet active apps (i.e., Verichat, Blazer, etc.) simultaneously, this will cause buffering.

    This is geek-nifty and I was doing it with my old Tungsten|C, Treo 600 and am doing it with my neato-bandito Treo 650, but it would be a whole lot easier if they just shoved an FM radio in there!

    Of course you couldn't pick up stations from around the world like we can with this setup, but it would still be easier.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not hatin...I'm geekin out to BBC now...

    Well, I have since poked around shoutcast a little more and found a couple of 64kb streams that work without issue. I wonder why the 56kb stream I was listening to before is causing so much trouble?

    I really wish I could get this particular stream working properly. Anyone have any ideas?
