    Hey guys,

    i'm buying an iPhone tomorrow. can you tell me whether it'll be possible to view vids from this website: http://www.tv-links.co.uk/

    ??

    At the moment, it requires a DivX codec, but then it's great! do you know about this site in the US?

    Well if you are including hacks, then anything is possible. You can always write a divx player for iPhone yourself.

    Why is it, when this is supposed to be a polite community, you fire back with a sarcastic answer, when he asks a legit question? Maturity goes a long way in life... Try to use some.

    I just tried on my iPhone & no they don't work & i'm not sure if there are any hacks out to play that format or not... Yeah some of the people can be immature jerks, however they sound like they are 15 year olds though so that would make sense.... darn kids haha

    thanks guys. I'm sure someone must be working on it. my skills aren't that great to make a codec myself.

    if you get a chance to check out that site it's amazing! like all seasons of 24 every episode just streamed! can you imagine a killer divx streaming codec for iPhone? the site has movies too... you wouldn't have to worry that it only has 8gb storage.

    I agree, this would be amazing. All it would take would be a site like this to encode the video with H.264. I'm sure it will happen in time.

    It's like ... wow ... use www.google.com ...

    That site requires Flash and DivX, neither of which the iPhone has. :rolleyes:

    The best way to handle TV shows is to download them from the net, and drop them (any format) into iSquint, which will automatically h.264 encodes them, and auto drops them into iTunes for you, ready for your next sync. Even the 4GB iPhone has plenty of memory for several shows, and you don't have to worry about having a good net connection for streaming.

    Once the iPhone supports flash, most all of these sites will be viewable on the iPhone. Flash is certain to come to the iPhone platform by the end of the year.

    I have a iPod
    touch and it runs google just fine. However I too was wondering if tv links worked (one of the only sites not blocked at school) and was Sad to find that it was shut down, so no tv links doesn't work on iPhone. The lack of flash really puts a damper on all stuff!
