Default veetle .com works on 2.2 phones!

There is no app yet but I figured this is a good place to post it for someone looking for veetle on android. The iphone/pad has an app but we really dont need one now that it works. I cant get cable here so I stream foxnews from veetle. Now i can watch it on the phone.

Default FOR REAL: Stream Veetle.com on Android

I recently switched to an HTC Inspire 4G from an iPhone, and I've been super frustrated that veetle.com doesn't stream natively to the device. I've spent a good chunk of time looking into how to do this and this morning I came up with a decent way to stream any veetle channel on an Android device.

Requirements:
*Rooted, S-OFF, et al
Cyanogenmod 7 RC1 Installed
VPlayer (can be installed from Android Market)

In the default browser in CM 7, tap Menu, tap More, then scroll to the bottom and choose Settings.

Again scroll to the bottom, and tap Select User Agent, found under Advanced Settings. Choose iPhone for the User Agent type.

Navigate to veetle.com, and you'll see it's presented as it is on the iPhone, and VPlayer handles the m3u8 streams just fine. You might need to turn up the buffer size in VPlayer to get a nice consistent flow, but this is my new method for watching Veetle.com on my phone.

Hey it definitely works when you play the channels from the veetle website but there seems to be a problem when i try to view veetle channel links on other websites.It gives me a message COULD NOT FIND STREAM LOCATION .I have confirmed that the stream is working by using my PC ,so any help would be much appreciated.

I tried with all browsers and no luck. I can only save the file stream.m3u8 and when i try to open with vplayer it skips and gets back to file browsing. the same happend when i try to open the url on vplayer.

I broadcast on veetle, full time. After my research on android, i found out that Android OS stream veetle using dolphin hd+vplayer could do it. Check MePirate on veetle movie list and go to my website for more details. There is vplayer.apk ready to be download there.
