Is there a way to receive mms:// streams on your iPhone?

I found one way of doing it but it's kind of...not something I would want to do whenever I want to do this.

Orb. I have Orb on my iPhone and Orb installed and running on my PC. I can then add and play whatever MMS stream I want, BUT I have to leave my PC on whenever I want to watch something, which isn't anything I want to do.

SO, is there an easy way to play MMS streams on an iPhone?

I tried VLC4iPhone but it sucks. Nothing works and it keeps crashing.

On a stock phone, there is no true MMS at this time. Tons of people have been wanting this since the V1.

I think you are confusing MMS (Multimedia Picture Messaging) with mms:// which is a MultiMedia Stream. MMS doesn't exist, however I believe there are apps which can pick up an mms:// stream and play the audio (or video).

I'm sure Pocket Tunes can do it. I can test it if you want.

Yes the both stream music but they stream music from their own sources. You can't input a custom mms:// stream into either application and have it start streaming the audio.
