Internet audio questions please.


Nov 16, 2008, 5:27 AM
Just got my dare this week for the internet and
music features.

Currently using plug in headset and plug
in earbuds.

SD card music playback is good.
Vcast music playback is good
Featured video playback from sites good.

However.....Youtube audio is Not good-sounds
like the audio is underwater or using a flange
special effect and also has poor frequency range. My buddy at work has internet on his
phone which is a different model/company and it
also sounds bad on youtube playback. Home
computer plays back the same videos with acceptable audio which I record and put on sd card.

Am wondering if a bluetooth stereo headset would play back the vids with good audio?

Thanks for any replies.

I unno what it is with youtube, but its not just you. It could be the network cant handle that much bandwith...

Thanks scorpio02150.

I did try the stereo bluetooth headphones and they sounded nice but didn't improve the sound any better than my wired headphones.

What I did get was the T505 speaker/fm transmitter and play my songs through the car radio which is fun.

My guess is the technology is geared to force customers to buy the Vcast service which has
music with no quality issues. On top of that,
with no adobe flash on the cel, I can really only visit youtube for music which is in mono.

Hopefully 2010 or maybe 2009 will have the phones with full adobe flash enabled out and I can then go to imeem, vh1, mtv, etc and get stereo music using the improved flash
system. Saw this week announcement that
the plan was to have them out by ...

How did you get the audio from Mob Web to play thru the bt stereo headphones?

it has nothing to do with the network not handling it, more of a mobile youtube thing.

i thought i was the only one having this problem.. its so weird because i used to have the voyager and it had crystal clear youtube playback... soo odd.. back then i used to listen to music through mobile youtube but now that the sound sucks i have to buy Vcast music =[

I hear you on that one. I've tried the 20 second previews but can't justify the $1.99 per song price. I currently record off any of the stereo free mp3 sites onto a zoom H2 as
an mp3 file, put the song onto the computer
and then copy from that onto the Dare formatted micro sd in the My Music file.
Playback is good enough for me that way.

Can you save the songs onto your sc micro
from the vcast service? That might be and option later on for me. I'm already on a premium service package which is not cheap!
The monthly vcast price seems nice but over the
year would be spendy.

when there are so many free music download options out there.

limewire works great for me, and with a built-in card reader on my laptop, its easier then ever.

My thinking was a way to get quality music direct from the phone instead of having to record from the pc onto the micro sd card.
So far have used Imeem with great success
and after searching for a song by name Lastfm is excellent as well but I can't search on last
fm like I can on Imeem. Have not tried Limewire yet but my sone has used it several times and loves it. Thanks for the reply.

So far, I think vcast is the only way to just
use the phone to get the music onto the sd card since flash player isn't available yet on cel phonse afaik.

Youtube is providing the mobile video streams, which are encoded to be streamed over low and unreliable bandwidth. As a result, the quality sucks. The streams have to be 3gp or 3g2 encoded for the Dare so it can't use the flv streams. Unfortunately, this means you're stuck with the low quality on youtube with the Dare.

Thank you Nimdae

m.youtube.com has extremely horribly compressed versions of the videos on the normal YouTube. That's why the audio sounds like rubbish.
And yes, it can play audio through the Bluetooth from the Browser. it worked on my NOKIA BH-200.
