I guess since Sirius uses flash this will work when the Adobe Flash/Apple negotiations get pained out and put on the iPhone.

Somebody here tried the web browser and said that he gets all the way to the player screen but it shows blue instead of playing.

It should work sometime.

MY friend has a Black Jack phone and gets XM radio on his,first of all you must be a XM subscriber,and there is a small monthy fee.I am assuming Sirius offers a similar service.

you need to find out how h getting around flash. With XM just go to the site and the link to listen to it on the net is in the upper right. The email address you used for you account is what you need. I tried XM today and ran into the flash issue. Once we get that resolved we are golden.

Cant be done yet! Believe me, i have tried every way possible, and there is nothing in place YET! to listen to howard. I still carry around my stiletto, hopefully it wont be to long.

I downloaded Sirius wm5 on my blackjack and that worked great!, but until the flash player comes out we will just have to suffer!

Thats correct, XM comes preinstalled on blackjack. Someone created a hacked app to get Sirius on the blackjack, it worked great! you needed to be a subscriber and use your login to access the radio, but like i said it worked awesome.
It played the channels using windows media player, and gave a full channel listing, where as xm i think was only a handfull of channels

I can't listen to Sirius live, but I can listen to a "15 minute tape delay"! :)

I use Audio Hijack Pro on my Mac to record Howard Stern every morning. I have AHP set to record a mono 24kbps mp3 and cut it up into 15 minute chunks. These chunks are posted to my own private webserver.

Through safari I can listen to these files. By using a 24kbps mp3 I have no problem listening over edge!

So, I can listen to Howard Stern anywhere with my iPHone, but I am 15 minutes behind!

Sorry! You'll have to trust me on that one as I am not going to give out the address of my own personal Howard Stern server!

I am going to have to call your bluf as well. Seems like to much to believe, plus with all the splitting of files in 15 minute chuncks then uploading, i would imagine you would be missing lare chuncks of the show while this was taking place, either way i don't believe it,

Plus even if it was try seems like way to much work going on, i would rather just wait for flash

Mp3s over the iPhone safari browser work. After reading this I set it up on our company website and it works! I'm just looking for some other content out on the web that could work too.

unless Sirius goes out of its way to make a special media player with the iPhone/safari, i doubt it would be possible.

Sirius on my iPhone would make me the happiest person in the world. being able to listen to Howard anywhere and everywhere would be the best.

OT - would the radio be able to stream live over EDGE or is it too slow?

I am sorry if you don't believe me. It is really quite simple.

1. I have my Sirius radio hooked up to the audio in port on my Mac.

2. I use a program called Audio Hijack Pro. It takes the audio going into my Mac and records it to mp3s. It does cut it into 15 minute chunks, but that is my choice. I could have it be 10 minute chunks, 1 hour chunks or 5 hour chunks. It really doesn't matter.

3. Audio Hijack Pro is set to record at 24kbs. The directory it saves the files into is being served as a website by my home computer.

4. Safari on the iPhone plays mp3s. Edge is fast enough so that at 24kbps as soon as Safari starts the download quicktime can start playing the audio and the download stays ahead of the playback.

The only real drawback to this is that while Edge is being used the iPhone can't receive a phone call. But that is one reason I chose to do 15 minute chunks so that each download ends fairly quickly and the iPhone can take calls again.

Waiting for the flash player is not the solution for streaming XM or Sirius, or most webstreams, with your iPhone.

In most cases the flash is just the player controls, and the audio steam is actually WMA or Real or something embedded in to the flash code.

Use firefox on a mac with flip4mac and go to xm or Sirius or ifilm or whatever. You can see that the stream is actually being played in the QT flip4mac WMA player, inside of the flash structure.

You can tell it is the QT plug-in.

I guess IE on windows does a better job of disguising the player.

Flash can stream audio using a Flashcom server, but it is not one of the most preferred methods.

None of the big web audio streamers stream via Flashcom.

We will need to wait for something like flip4mac4iPhone to play WMA streams in QT on our iPhones.

Since iTunes on the Mac opens mp3 streams meant for winamp (shoutcast), maybe streaming mp3's will be the first solution for live audio on the iPhone.
