    doubleu, if I click on that link with a 9650, will it download smoothly without any hacking? Is there a way to just simply download it onto the phone without modifying any of the files?
    It didn't for me, but that's not to say it won't for other people. I think your chances are much improved if you enter that whole 1.0.13 .JAD url in your BlackBerry's web browser, that way it knows where the get the .COD files from.

    I know that's not the answer you're looking for, but that's all I have at this point. I did try to make my instructions in post 10 a little more clear, but I understand if you're still not comfortable with it. I don't know what else to do, nor how to make it simpler. *shrug*

    That is great! I would love to include your steps or a how-to on placeshiftingenthusiasts.com/forum/ it could help a bunch of folks.
    BTW, all of the different BlackBerry SlingPlayer Mobile files are shown and where to download them here but I don't want to just post a ton of links.

    If you go to placeshiftingenthusiasts.com/forum/ and do a quick search for BlackBerry you will see them right away.

    Has anyone tried the 1.0.13 Bold version?
    http://download.slingmedia.com/playe...bold_EN_US.jad
    That installs fine in the browser but craps out right after it finishes optimizing and everything....otherwise seems to run fine....just can't watch anything hah. I'm on Verizon's 9650 with .732 firmware if that helps. Let me know if anyone figures this out on Verizon's 9650.

    I followed the steps to install the older version...same problem...craps out after optimizing video. I have a feeling it has something to do with the fact that I haven't upgraded the firmware on that slingbox in over a year and there's been new updates....since it's in a different country, guess I'm going to have to wait. =(

    BIG THANKS to DoubleU!!!!

    His instructions work perfectly on my VZ 9650. I used the newer version of the app, 1.0.0.13 on OS 5.0.0.732.

    Let me see if I can summarize :

    1 - Download the Bold version of the SPM app :

    http://download.slingmedia.com/playe...bold_EN_US.jad

    (Save it into a folder on your desktop.)

    2 - Open the .jad file in Notepad, prefix each *.cod file with the URL for where to download the file :
    http://download.slingmedia.com/player/mobile/bb1013/US/

    (Save the edited .jad file in quotes to retain the extension.)

    3 - Use each of the edited .cod + URL links to download each file to the folder on your desktop (or just use these) :
    http://download.slingmedia.com/playe...lingPlayer.cod
    http://download.slingmedia.com/playe...ngPlayer-1.cod
    http://download.slingmedia.com/playe...ngPlayer-2.cod

    http://download.slingmedia.com/playe...bold_us-11.cod

    4 - You should have 35 files in the folder when you're done; 34 CODs and 1 JAD.

    5 - Copy the folder over to your Storage Card on your 9650.

    6 - Use File Explorer on the BB to run the JAD from the Storage Card, it will install.

    7 - Run immediately after install.

    8 - Enjoy.

    I didn't need to follow these instructions (although I did it also as a second time and it worked fine also) to install as the latest version installs fine. Problem I have is after optimizing....it says connection lost...both wifi and 3G....it'll connect maybe 2 out of 20 times I try....so it's not worth it to me ($30 to register). I'm glad others have got it to work though...be nice if it worked for me. Seemed to stream fine the twice I connected but I couldn't get it to connect consistently no matter what settings I used.

    Hmmm - this is about the 6th or 7th phone I have used my SPM license with, so for me the $30 a couple years ago until now is nothing...

    I do notice that while I am connected over WiFi, and an SMS comes in, that SPM will disconnect on this 9650. But if I am connected over EVDO, no issues.

    Weird I rarely can connect...and would never pay $30 for a software that has this kind of reliability....I'm assuming having the thing registered shouldn't make a difference. I'm connecting to a Sllingbox solo I have setup in Japan....when I connect via my HTPC/other computers in the US, I stream a steady 700-850 kbps so I don't think the Slingbox is the issue. Wish I had it working as well as you...I'd pay the $30 and never look back for that capability. What firmware are you running? I'm using .732 off a clean wipe and it's been flawless on everything I've ran on it except this whole Slingplayer business.

    I am seeing this all the sudden with SlingPlayer and my Tour 9630 on Sprint. What I have figured out is that I get the connection lost message when my receiver is off and I should get the "Weak or No Signal" message from the Slingplayer. If my receiver is on, then it starts playing fine. I usually leave the receiver off, so this prevents me from connecting to the Slingbox to turn it on. Anyone know how to get around this?

    Thanks!

    Try this, I put everything in a folder, so just extract and copy the folder to your memory card. If you need more help there's a bulletproof read me file in the folder.


    Hope this helps,

    Wow, splintercell . . . you da man!
    If you notice on Slings site their is no model for any VZ phone for sling mobile.

    I had the bold files working on my Tour (without updating the file) until I upgraded to 5.0

    Somehow VZ managed to block Sling Media in 5.0. So when I upgraded to the Bold 9650 which came yesterday I was excited that now I'd have sling mobile back. But no, it is still 5.0 and still blocked.

    Then I read this thread and said fagetiboutit because no one could follow those technical instructions.

    But then you put them into the folder and I extracted your folder into it. I then copied the folder and pulled my card from the 9650 and copied the folder directly to the card. I also opened the bb folder on the card and copied it directly there too.

    I was amazed and thrilled that it is running flawlessly. (PS is does come up with a message during the process that this BB is not supported, but it may work).

    It's working great. I'm on my knees now bowing down several times to you

    One question. I'd like to delete the duplicate folder but I'm scared to tweak it.

    Which place can I delete the folder. The card or after I open the folder that says blackberry because I put it in there too???

    Thx

    So now I have my 9650 playing sling mobile on their trial software. Their support pages say if you purchased the program from their online store (which I did) down load another copy to your new device (which I did) and use the old key from your original purchase.

    My problem is I can't see "anywhere to enter the key???

    I've searched all over the software.

    They say to enter the key on the new device and they will send you a new key. I doubt that the program knows to do that?

    I called their support, but of course they want a credit card to talk with me, so I told him to stick this program up his *ss

    You can delete the folder(s) you transferred over to your memory card after you've installed SlingPlayer. Once it's installed it no longer relies on the install folder, so delete away.

    Thx SplinterCell, yes that worked. I deleted both install folders and it still plays . . .

    I've saved your original folder to my laptop in case I ever need to re-install it.

    I'm willing to bet after the trial expires it will ask for your code. Just relax and in 30 days enter your code. And rest assured SlingPlayer Mobile will seamlessly transfer the license you bought for another BlackBerry to your new 9650! If not light the forums up when you can no longer access your SlingPlayer. I know I would!


    Good luck,
    Chris

    P.S. The new key they send is the seamless part. SlingPlayer Mobile handles it all, I'm sure it'll all work out when it does finally ask for your code.

    You were correct. But there is no place to enter an activation code. What happens is you have wait until the next day and when you go back into the program it checks your reg. Then it tells you there is 29 days left on your trial period. It asks "do you want to reg"? I put my old code in and it said reg successful!

    Now I remember when I went from the Treo to the Tour (and now I have the Bold)I called them or read in a Treo thread that you just use the same reg. You are allowed 1 device per email address.

    What ticks me off was the run around the broken english speaking foreign c/s rep was giving me the run around. I was not asking him for tech support only where or how to put my reg into the program. But all he wanted was my credit card!

    Update: They actually did send me an email right after it took the reg key:

    Dear Sling Media Customer,

    Thanks for using SlingPlayer Mobile! We're glad that you've made us a part of your mobile experience.

    Just as a reminder, your SlingPlayer Mobile registration key is good for activating one player at a time. As a convenience to you, our one-step registration transfer service automatically deactivates the previous phone when you activate a new one. It's one less thing for you to do! This email confirms that this registration transfer has been completed.

    Need help on finding another down load of slingmobile.

    Following Splintercells directions on putting his install folder on my card Sling working fine. Last week I had a syncing issue with my Act program and I think it put the old Sling settings back on my 9650.

    But now when I wiped the Sling program and tried to re-down load a fresh copy the link does not work anymore:

    http://download.slingmedia.com/playe...bold_EN_US.jad

    This file can only be installed by down loading directly to the BB. But after pushing down load it says "down load file failed"

    Neither does trying to go directly to mobile.slingmedia.com work any more from my BB.

    I did get finally get to sling mobile home page down load through a google search, but when I tried to download the file to my BB it won't let me. It just says my BB not supported.

    All I'm trying to get is the program that runs on a Bold. And then I can use Spintercells install foolder again.

    Any help appreciated.

    Everything that SlingPlayer Mobile needs is already in that folder, so you don't need to install from any link first. I'm confused as to what you're doing? Just install from that folder again and it should work out just like before.
