07-12-2007, 03:02 AM
Can anyone inform me how to get the radio channels as on www.nederland.fm to play on my N800.
Same question for TV as on: http://www.uitzendinggemist.nl/index.php/aflevering?aflID=5017777&md5=5b078d875fba55ab9c51acd01c15059e
Help is appreciated. Thanks.

Tough luck. The audio/video codecs of the N800 are very limited. The streams you mention won't work. The best thing to do is to set up a media streamer on your pc (like tversity) and re-stream the stations you want into the N800 format from there. It does mean that you have to have your pc running all the time though.

Install mplayer, it has quite a bit of codec support and try the following line (at least for audio):
mplayer -vo null -cache 256 -playlist [URL of Stream]
Yes, it's not the cleanest method, but it works. Now I will say that sometimes it looks like mplayer isn't doing anything and if I hit enter on the virtual keyboard mplayer stops the process but doesn't kill it in which case i then need to type "fg" and then it streams and plays.
