A light-weight application that provides access to media streams directly - eliminating the requirement for a (flash-enabled) mobile browser.

Requires a QVGA, VGA or WVGA device running Windows Mobile Professional (Pocket PC) 6.0 or higher (see the additional requirements below).

http://www.skynetsoftware.com/myPlayer


Features:
> Choose your own media player - define how each stream is played (CorePlayer v1.3.6 is recommended‡)
> Full streaming integration - browse the content as you would from any other supported device
> Extensive TV feed index - hundreds of live TV feeds from around the globe
> Live Radio stations - a selection of International broadcasts
> Custom TV / Radio stations - add your favourites

* CorePlayer is required to watch the high quality live TV channels (please use this config.xml for the best experience)

Requirements:
> A media player that supports RTSP streaming and the mpeg4 codec (CorePlayer v1.3.6 is recommended‡)
> The .NET 2.0 Compact Framework (which is bundled with Windows Mobile Professional 6.0 and above)

‡ HTC's bundled StreamingPlayer and Windows Media Player should also work for users with faster devices (for example the HTC HD2)


*** Whilst streaming video this application will use a considerable amount of bandwidth - please ensure you use it via an unlimited data policy ***

User feedback is always appreciated and should help to improve the usability of future releases.

myPlayer is an independent application and is in no way endorsed by or affiliated with any other content provider.


Latest version: 2.300

Works great on a Polaris. Also useable on a Blackstone WVGA. No problems at all and nice to have the standalone application outside of a browser. Only used wifi - can't afford data streaming.

Thank you much!

Any chance of WVGA version?

Yes, I am aware of that version. In some ways craftyb's app inspired me to create the myPlayer app.

This application is a more light-weight alternative (approx 50kb at the time of writing). I tried the iPlayer app on my Kaiser but it didn't like it very much. The stream quality was a little too high - so the video playback was a bit choppy.

myPlayer uses the low bit rate streams which are served via the BBC iPlayer mobile site. The 3G stream in particular is a very low bit rate. It is also QVGA friendly

The intention is to provide an iPlayer service for those using older Windows Mobile devices.

Yep, that is something I will be working on in the near future. I'll probably use the extra space to display more detailed programme information.

I'm also looking in to the behaviour of the app when the screen orientation changes from portrait to landscape.

I've tried them both and myPlayer is much much faster on Blackstone almost instant in fact. With iPlayer you have to wait for the file to download which takes a long time. Also iPlayer is 914kb whereas myPlayer is 52.6kb.

How will you do that from France? Thought it only works from UK IP addresses or do you have a trick up your sleeve?
