I'm listening to Sirius streaming online audio on my n800 without running any server on my desktop. I'm using the python script Sipie in particular this verizon of the script: http://eli.criffield.net/sipie/backup/1178140820.sipie
The script utilizes mplayer for decoding the sirius stream. I did a little hacking on the script to get it to work. The stream seems to be too high bitrate and there is a little skipping in the decoding but it has great potential. I'm looking for some advice from someone who knows more about the n800 platform - maybe some mplayer streaming options need optimized.

I am a total novice so I cannot assist with development, but I would certainly contribute money to making sirius available on the n800. Sirius has been a major reason that I could not get away from my pocket pc in favor of the n800. If sirius were available on the n800, that would be AWESOME!

Sorry for the multiple posts, but I will buy sirius for a year for any developer that wants to make this happen.

I'll chip in on a radio.

I think there are probably lots of folks here who would love to see a Sirius app for the N800.

I will do my best to recall what I installed on my n800 to get a choppy sirius stream.

Apps to install:
xterm
mplayer
pymaemo

Python scripts to install:
sipie
BeautifulSoup
getpass

Mplayer options in sipie script:
mplayer -really-quiet -nojoystick -nolirc -user-agent NSPlayer -nomouseinput -ac dspmp3 -ao gst -cache 1024 -playlist

Any suggestions for myplayer options for a sirius stream on an n800?

Ok, I played some more and now have it working. No more skipping audio, even when browsing the web!

Using these options:
mplayer -really-quiet -nojoystick -nolirc -user-agent NSPlayer -nomouseinput -ao gst -cache 32 -playlist

These options are set in .sipie/config - this in is where my error lied I was editing the Sipie.py script and the config file's options were overiding the script. Luckily the script developer had some debuging which I turned on and magically it became all too clear my error.

There is no working GUI at this point. I really don't have the time at the moment to make this into a proper maemo package.

This may be a stupid question...but what and where are the BeautifulSoup and getpass scripts?
Also how do I go about implementing all this???

Not a stupid question as far as I am concerned and a web search yields this:

"Beautiful Soup is a Python HTML/XML parser designed for quick turnaround projects like screen-scraping."
from http://www.crummy.com/software/BeautifulSoup/
(maybe for extracting info/links from Sirius site?)

"getpass - portable password input"
from http://www.python.org/doc/current/li...e-getpass.html
(probably for applying your password to a Sirius site)

Just guesses on my part but I too am anxiously following this thread with an aim toward accessing Sirius streams on my N800.
