Anyone use Sling Player for Slingbox on the Storm?
I am thinking about getting a slingbox and was wondering if anyone has used the sling player on their storm, it is not in the supported blackberry phone listed. I seem to recall seeing someone's list of apps here on BBOS that had used it. Does it work well with vzw? Thanks!
I can't speak from personal experience regarding using Sling Player Mobile on the Storm; however, several folks on the Crackberry forums have reported good results downloading the Curve's ".jad" for SPM directly to their 9530 and running SPM in compatibility mode.
I used that same version of the SPM on my old 8830. The 8830 was "gasping for breath" to stream TV, but it was usually watchable.
I ran the Bold's version of SPM on my Tour with pretty impressive (to me) results--until I tried itehun's hybrid OS for the Tour. The OS runs great but Sling Player is having issues with the hybrid build right now.
I used it on my storm. Like they said a above, you have to use in compatability mode. Then you have to swipe the screen like you have a trackball. I don't have the download link anymore. it does work though.and I am on verizon. I had it on my treo with verizon and it wad awesome.
NOTE: use the Curve download link I posted earlier (also on one of the later pages of the above link) instead of the beta link on page one. Download OTA using your BB browser.
I've got it (the Bold's build of SPM) running just fine on my Tour. I also ran the curve version on my old 8830--although the old 8830 was kind of maxed out trying to run SPM, but it was mostly watchable. The Storm should run it easily in compatibility mode.
