Oh, no, not again....
Is there really no way of getting even BBC UK radio via the iPlayer on an E6? I actually don't care if the screen is broad and shallow, because all I want to do is listen to Radio 4 _and_ be able to take notes and/or browse relevant sites at the same time. The BBC only has WorldService radio on Nokia Internet Radio, and while YourMuze.fm is good quality and stability-wise, it takes over the phone, i.e. goes off line if you browse away or open another app.
So many other great apps have solved the E6 640x480 screen res. problem, so why can't the Beeb?
I am not a programmer, so fixing certificates and other legit sculduggery is way beyond me...
(Good radio makes me) Smile Away!!!
Can you describe what the problem is specifically.
BBC iPlayer works very well on my E6 via a wifi connection for both television and radio. I have Radio 4 on right now to test it.
iPlayer does not support streaming though a 3G connection though, not for Symbian, iPhone or Android.
Try this direct link from the Radio 4 webpage. I can listen to the live broadcast over both wifi and 3G on my E6.
Hi twozero3! Thanks for your reply.
I clicked on your link in the E6's native browser and it said "Loading". I tried switching from 3G to WiFi but that made no difference. Then I entered the URL instead of clicking on your link...
It switched to the Nokia player and said "Loading" for a few minutes, but then reverted to the News site.
I think it's more likely my non-residence in UK than anything truly technical.
Not being a licance payer, I don't expect to get TV, but R4 is available worldwide on the net.
I know the Beeb is catering for iPhone users but a) I don't want an iPhone and b) I don't want the BBC's offerings designed for ex-pats because they think we're all flippin' millionaires.
I just want to listen to BBC Radio 4 and still be able to take notes and browse while listening without other interruptions to what is on LIVE in the UK now.
That was the bad news. The good news is that going straight to bbc.co.uk/iplayer takes you there in the Nokia browser.
I guess I'll have to get a VPN solution of some kind. Going to http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/ on my W7 PC gives me live Radio 4 on a slimmed down, radio-only iPlayer, so perhaps I should modify my Bob Dylan-style mouth organ holder and lug my Dell laptop around like an oversized bib with a 4G LTE fast broadband connection just to spite the Beeb!!
