- TCPMP should be able to, but I have not had much luck with it. FLV seems to choke TCPMP, and 3GP doesn't seem to work at all on TCPMP.
- For streaming YouTube with TCPMP you may need to try several different formats to find one that will play well. Coreplayer should be able to stream most of the formats (other than HD formats).

cool beta - I hope that with this app can be supported more portals than only this one like tube8.
Search works,but "play" as also "save" doesn't work.
fot play it tries to open tcpmp instead of core player,and tcpmp can't handle it.
For "save" it opens opera9, and not my opera10.no flash there.
I didn't find anything to configure it to core player or opera10.

thanx for the 1st release

It installed and opened fine on my TP2. The search feature works, but the "play" and "save" options do not work as mentioned above. It tries to save using my Opera10 browser where I receive a "403 - Forbidden" page. It tries to play on TCPMP but "Could not open URL!" even when setup as suggested here:

Hopefully this feedback will help you

Thanks for the feedback guys.

It sounds like I need to change the way it finds the installed video player. I already have an idea how I should have done that, so I will make that change.

It also sounds like I didn't account for people having default browsers other than IE, so I'll take care of that as well.

As far as adding additional sites, that is definitely in my plans. My first priority is to get it working properly with one site, and once that is done, I don't expect it will take too much to add additional sites.

I'll try and get an update out later tonight.

I'm always happy to see this sort of project WVD was one of a kind but it seems to have died out without leaving it's source behind.

I've not been able to use your app though... I get a "Cannot start process because a file name has not been provided" message... Don't have a clue about the cause...

As for suggestion go:
1- Add Youtube support... With WVD gone we either use GETYTV to download or YouTubePlay to view (I won't count the official app as it sucks, HTC app as I'm on a Samsung or CorePlayer as they lost all my consideration when they killed TCPMP to turn profit)...

2- Add catergory browsing to all websites.

3- Adapt/fix the resolution (currently it seems to expect for all devices to be VGA...). My device shows only 1 image per line (as oposed with your screenshot).

4- About the app structure I suggest the one thing I've always suggested when it comes to this sort of app: make it in such a way that one can add and maintain websites using external text based files (xml and the likes). Websites will constantly change and people will nag the dev ad nauseam for updates (reading the WVD thread it's easy to see this)... This way maybe other people can contribute.



PS: About TCPMP versions do try the one in my signature... It's basically a bundle of bimbam69 (link in my signature) with rmvb plugin. Make sure you delete TCPMP registry key before you use any new version.

A generic approach that can be maintained without code changes would be great. Unfortunately, most sites (other than YouTube) do not provide a consistent API or WebService to access the videos. So you are kind of at the mercy of the site layout. I will think about ways to make the app easy to update though.

2 - is in the plans.
3 - is also in the plans as soon as I figure out how to detect the resolution of the device. This is my first Windows Mobile App.

Wow, I'm glad it works for you. I was beginning to think I was the only one.
