Default BBC new video stream on bold

Please Login to Remove!

BBC have a video stream of the latest headlines available on their website (news.bbc.co.uk then select the Watch video news summary) but I have been unable to get the streams to work.
The media player opens and then gives the message "An error has occurred attempting to play media".
The download option does work but not the stream option
Any suggestions?

You cannot stream videos via the browser on the bold. No flash support.

You can watch youtube but only with a client
like xenobe or what ever it is called, I forget because its crap anyway.

I think I should be able to watch streamed .3gp videos - BlackBerry Knowledge base article KB05482 shows it supported for BlackBerry Bold

Streaming video seems to be a bit of a hit and miss affair and carrier specific. I'm on Rogers and can can only stream via WAP with the wifi off. Check out the several threads on problems with youtube streaming in the forums here.
