    I used this with absolutely zero problems when I was running 4.6. I recently upgraded to 5.0 (681), and now none of the streams I used to use work. I get an error message, saying that it could not be open.

    Any suggestions as to A) how to fix it or B) a free app that will stream custom URLs?

    My phone has been reset several times since I first noticed this problem, and it is still an issue, so a battery pull/reset is not solving this at all.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Did some more searching of this - it's a problem most common with youtube videos. I haven't seen a single solution that works.

    Sounds like if it works - great! Yippee! Otherwise if it doesn't, you're screwed and there's nothing you can do.

    Still hope someone else has an answer...

    Anyone able to lend a hand trying to solve this? I tried configuring via m.youtube.com as one solution suggested, but no dice.

    This might be issue enough to make me downgrade to 4.6

    Try the free YouTube player in the CrackBerry App Store.

    Does it play audio streams as well? I don't generally use YouTube, but I like to stream a couple of radio stations.

    Update to this:

    I just tried one of my other streams, and got it to work. It seems that a direct link to the audio stream works, but opening a stream via link from a website results in an error.

    So this means that I can listen to the radio stations I did before, but looks like I'm out of luck for Jamendo without going through some annoying steps to get it to work. Still, I was more concerned about getting the radio stations to work, so I'll take this as a victory.

    Clarification: I'm referring to BB Media Player, not the Youtube Player from the app store.

    I have had mixed results with streaming on my bold as well. Youtube almost never streams flawlessly and audio streaming works perfectly sometimes and sometimes it doesn't work at all.

    I stream audio specifically through yourmuze and the inconsistency is frustrating. Honestly, I'm not sure if it's yourmuze or the browser/media player. I'm just hoping that blackberry can address this with the new OS and browser...otherwise I'll be defecting. It is a showstopper for me unfortunately because I like to stream music at work and I can't do so through my desktop.

    Oh yeah, audio streaming is going to be the make-or-break feature on the next phone I get. I'm sticking with the Bold as long as I can, basically until it breaks after my warranty is up :P But I'm hoping it's longer than that.

    My hope is that the next time I go for a phone upgrade, there will be a new BB device out that handles audio streaming a lot better than it does now. It never used to be a consideration for me until I found out that A) it doesn't use THAT much data for the amount of times I use it and B) when it works, it works GREAT.

    My expectation is that OS6 will probably address this a bit. With a real Youtube player and the addition of flash support there will be a huge increase in what i will be able to do with streaming. So that would kinda of point to what you were saying next line of phones, or the Bold 9650. I am personally holding out for the 9800 at the moment. Athough I have to admit the latest from HTC (HD2, and Evo) is starting to look real tempting.
