Can now be found in the Windows Mobile MarketPlace!! Please leave a comment if you buy it or download the demo version.


I've created a windows mobile 6.5 widget. The widget makes contact with a huge database of live streams, so you can easily select a channel and watch it immediately.

The database used is from TodayPDA, so the database gets updated without you need to reinstall the application or redownload any xml file.

Any feedback is appreciated. If you have any request, of any kind, just post it or pm me. In the latest version I can add options which keep remembered by the program, so if anyone has a suggestion for that, please leave a reply and I'll add it as soon as possible

What does it contain?

-7883 radio streams
-3252 television streams
-59 different countries
-all the streams are checked every two weeks (live, offline, removed, etc)

The following countries (radio, television and webcam):
The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, United States, United Kingdom, Canada, France, Turkey, Italy, Australia, Spain, China, Switzerland, Sweden, Venezuela, Tsjechie, Thailand, Russia, Rumania, Portugal, Poland, Austria, Mexico, Japan, Madagascar, Brazil, Argentina, Bulgaria, Columbia, Denmark, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Greece, Hungary, India, Iran, Israel, South Korea, Latvia, Norway, Ukraine, Serbia, Slovakia, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria, Andorra, Antigua and Barbados, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Angola, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Belize, Benin, Bolivia, Bosnia-Herzegovina , Brunei, Chili, Congo, Costa Rica, Cuba, Cyprus, Djibouti, Ecuador, Egypt, Estonia, Ethiopia, Faroe Eil, Fiji, Philippines, Finland, Fr. Guiana, Fr. Polynesia, Georgie, Ghana, Greenland, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Hong Kong, Ireland, Iceland, Indonesia, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Jordanie, Cameroon, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kuwait, North Korea, Kosovo, Croatia, Kurdistan, Lebanon, Libya, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macau, Macedonia, Malaysia, Malta, Morocco, Mauritanie, Mauritius, Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Myanmar, Nepal, Nicarague, New Zealand, Niger, Nigeria, Uzbekistan, Oman, Pakistan, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Qatar, Reunion, San Marino, Saudi Arabia, Seychellen, Singapore, Slovenia, Sri Lanka, Suriname, Syria, Taiwan, Trinidad and Tob, Tunesia, Uruguay, Vatican, United Arab Emirates, Belarus, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Jamaica, Indie

The streams get checked?
In front of all the streams there is a color:
+red: stream offline when checked
+orange: we could not check the stream because of software limitation
+green: stream was online when we checked
+black: stream has just been added and needs to be checked

How to install?
Some roms don't have the widgetinstaller linked to the *.wgt files. If your rom doesn't have that you will get the following error when you click on the widget: "There is no application associated with <<name widget>>. Run the application first, then open this file from within the application"

To solve this I've created a cab file. Just install the cab enable_widgets_wm6.5.cab and it will work without a hard reset (thanks to notrock, mrpotter and B4PJS)

Installation order
1. Download enable_widgets_wm6.5.cab and the streams widget. Make sure that the streams widget file ends with .wgt and not with .zip, otherwise change it to .wgt
2. Copy the files to your mobile device (if not already done)
3. Run the enable_widgets_wm6.5.cab and install it
4. Click on the streams widget, it should popup with the question if you want to install the widget.
5. If it still does not work, soft reset. If again it does not work, go to step 6, otherwise you can view the streams

6. Look if the file "\Windows\wmwidgetinstaller.exe" exists, if not go to step 12. If it does exist, go to step 7.
7. Download "resco explorer" or "total commander" and install one of them
8. Browse to the folder where the wgt file is located
9. Inside the browsing program select the wgt file and use the option "Open with"
10. Browse to the \Windows\wmwidgetinstaller.exe and select that file.
11. The widget should install

12. Apperently you don't have the widget engine on your rom, so you should find a rom with the whole package or try the cab below: add_widget_engine_v2.cab. This will add all the files and registry entries the widget engine uses. This is just a beta so it might not work, and might screw up your rom (small change ).
13. After the installing of add_widget_engine_v2.cab soft reset and try to install a widget
14. It should now work

15. If that also does not work, post a reply. If you had to take steps 6-11, also post a reply so I can update the cab (if more people have the same problem)

I cook roms and want to add it, how do I do it?
twopumpchump made a package with the widget engine inside it, I added the newest version of the widget. Just unzip the folder and place it inside your rom (I don't know how exactly, twopumpchump is the master there )

Where are the download links?
enable_widgets_wm6.5.cab (updated with more registry settings for widgets)

Streams-T_v2.1_light.wgt (for both vga and qvga devices)

pkg_WMWidgets_v2.1_light.zip (widget engine package, thanx to twopumpchump)

add_widget_engine_v2.cab (cab to use with rom that don't have the widget engine, thanks to twopumpchump and slayer69)

Version 2.1 fixes the problem of the "undefined" message some have

Version history

Wow, this looks great. And I don't have to launch a browser! Thanks for your work, I'll test it on my ROM if you want. I haven't tried to install any other widget's yet, so there's only one way to find out.

These are the countries (with the number of streams behind it):
Argentinie (47) AustraliŽ (30)
BelgiŽ (15) Bosnie-Herzegovina (6)
Brazilie (136) Bulgarije (23)
Canada (67) Chili (36)
China (102) Columbia (18)
Denemarken (12) Dominicaanse Republiek (43)
Duitsland (175) Ecuador (4)

Israel (30) ItaliŽ (138)
Japan (39) Kroatie (7)
Letland (10) Luxemburg (2)
Madagaskar (0) Maleisie (5)
Marokko (4) Mexico (40)
Nederland (158) Noorwegen (6)
Oekraine (21) Oezbekistan (2)
Oostenrijk (26) Pakistan (16)
Peru (11) Polen (50)
Portugal (27) Roemenie (64)
Rusland (46) Servie (14)
Slovenie (6) Slowakije (13)
Spanje (111) Thailand (33)
Tsjechie (30) Turkije (189)
Venezuela (21)
Verenigd Koninkrijk (108)
Verenigde Staten (539)
Vietnam (27)
Zuid Korea (32)
Zweden (6)
Zwitserland (15)

The database used is from TodayPDA, so the database gets updated without you need to reinstall the application or redownload an xml file.

At the moment there is only one problem with 6.5 roms, one cannot install a new widget except the MSN widget. This is because of a buildin limtation or \Windows\riahost.exe

Inside emulators you can install widgets but not the roms i've tried. So I was wondering if anyone can install widgets? (and don't get the no association error). Othwerwise I'm not yet going to release the widget (it is finished).

Let me know if onyone can install them and if you want a new feature before I release it

And the screenshots:

I would love to test that. I was using a separate application to stream TV, but would ditch it if this works well right off titanium.

I've just added the download link. It probably does not work on your phone, but it does on a emulator.

Please help me to make it possible to install widgets on the wm 6.5 roms At the moment Msft only allows MSN Weather, MSN money and the search Widget from MSN.

If anyone wants, I can give some more details about what I've found. And if it does work, let me know!

I'm going to try this once the link becomes available, Looks like you are the only one trying to develop widgets for 6.5. Keep it up
