A quick check of Icecast suggests they are sending all of their streams via audio/ogg MIME type, which is not currently supported:





Do you know if it is possible to request different formats for streams from Icecast, such as actual MP3?

Re: blackberry webworks audiostreaming capability

Thanks i already found the solution  - I needed to add a slash and a semicolon to it.  It works now.

<audio id="mystream1" src="http://stream.comSmiley Tongueort/;" type="mp3" controls=""></audio>
