BRILLIANT!!! this is the sort of selling point Nokia want to be promoting ;o) this way I'll be able to come in to the office during the World Cup!(I'm on a conference call, honest...)Thanks Harry74 (are there really 74 harrys???)
Happy to help, Martin. Yes, it's a shame Nokia didn't make it work out of the box -- and I'm still hoping it might somehow work on WEP encrypted networks too. (As for the screenname -- arbitrarily chosen. Don't think there are another 73 harrys. are there?)
I've applied that brilliant workaround on my 9300i, and it works a treat.
I'm also using it on a WEP encrypted wireless network and it seems to be just fine? No particular issues with it and processor usage anyway (just the usual rubbish about network connectivity and buffering that seem to play ALL real players I've ever used...)
Thanks for posting that info, henley. I'll try again on my office WEP network. (When I've tried it there before it has looked like it's going to work, getting as far as buffering but then given up after about 30 seconds with an error message.)
One other point to note: the workaround only works for URLs that end in .ram. Going back to the BBC example, some of the World Service URLs (e.g. Newshour, the World Today) end in .rpm. You can get round this by simply amending the URL when you enter it in your 9300i.
As far as I can tell, .rpm and .ram files are the same, but .rpm tries to play a file in an embedded player (which, as state above, the Nokia 9300i can't do) and .ram launches the Realplayer application.
