Streaming Audio to a BlackBerry

Is this even possible? Can you embed some  type of player into a website and have it play when somebody navigates to the page with a BlackBerry?

 

I have searched and have thus far been unsuccessful, any help would be appriciated. 


Regards,

Nathan

Re: Streaming Audio to a BlackBerry

I am not in development, but streaming audio is entirely possible on the BB, with at least those devices of OS 4.5 and above.

 

The applications FlyCast and Slacker Radio are both examples.

Re: Streaming Audio to a BlackBerry

For FlyCast you need to download an app for your phone though right?

 

Is there anyway to embed the file in a Website so you just need to navigate to it ?

Re: Streaming Audio to a BlackBerry

I think you can use the object tag to embed supported media types in the browser. I don't know the details though, you'll have to play around with it. It should embed the device media player into the browser.

Re: Streaming Audio to a BlackBerry

if I recall correctly, all streams go through either the Media application (ShoutCast.com streamings, or vuclip.com ), of a specific java application (Youtube for example).
The browser just opens the Media application.

meaning you can't stream music while the user continues reading the webpage for example.
