    I like to listen to streaming audio and to audio files from websites where I click "listen now". On my regular computer there is an icon to click and the streaming starts. On my Touch the icon is a cube with a "?" on the side and I get a message that Safari can not access the server. I have 2 questions: Is there a way to listen to streaming audio on the touch, is there a way to listen to audio files on the touch and save them? Thanks in advance for your help!!

    That's because those streaming files are likely wrapped in Flash players, and the iPod touch (and iPhone) do not support Flash. If they were simply MP3 files, they would be played by QuickTime Player on the iPod touch just fine.

    Streaming MP3, AAC, MP4, and wav work fine, however most streams are either Flash or WMA, which are not available for iPhone, and WMA generally sucks.
