Default NPR podcast downloaded OTA

Please Login to Remove!

I've got npr podcasts to download and play direct to the 8800.

they dont play as they load, so it takes a while.

from here, for example [on your bb]

NPR : Podcast Directory

the mp3 download wont work for me but if you click on the yahoo button

My Yahoo! - Add NPR: 4PM ET News Summary

it downloads

it tried to auto play [w media player] and wouldnt, but then I went back to the browser and hit the speaker button, and I'm listening to the NPR news.

edit

the media player, plays in the browser window

They have to be under 5Mb (give or take) in order to download. Any larger and you get an error.

I've fiddled around with this for months and have pretty much given up.

AudioBay is "almost" there, but doesn't play nice with my BES.

VoiceIndigo is another possibility- they have a pretty good compression scheme that can shrink (and/or split) into smaller size chunks. The problem there is you give them the RSS feed info and wait for them to make the cast available (not quite on-demand).

All I want for x-mas is JUICE for my Blackberry. Or an FTP client that doesn't require me to beg my IT group to change BES parameters.

I had not been able to get NPR podcasts/mp3s to download at all.

But using the yahoo link worked. I can now get the hourly news summary. It takes about 2 mins to dl on edge in LA.

it would be great if it started playing as it downloaded.

edit

has anyone tried the streaming radio with berrytunes?

BerryTunes 2.1 - MP3 Player & Streaming Radio by VirtualViews.com - Handango BlackBerry Curve Music & Audio Software
