Does your droid play music from any of the stations shown at www.e-radio.gr
it's not loading wmp as my laptop does? which wmp do i need to download?
That site won't work. Try going to the app Market and search for: radio
I use "A Online Radio" and it works nicely. I've also tried StreamFurious and liked it. You can search thousands of world wide radio stations once you install one of these streaming radio apps.
it's not just this site. it's the site at all. Every site I have tried shows blue boxes bearing "?" at the place of the link that says "play" on my laptop. They are all windows media player files. They all are played with WMP for firefox. I see a sign reading "if you can't hear the stream click here" but there's nothing clickable.
I have gone to the download WMP download page and WMP 10 and 11 won't download as they are not recognized.
The app you sent me has no greek radio station that I could find. and 9 or WMP for firefox won't download because they won't install.

I don't believe you can stream radio through the browser - just through third-party apps. I could, of course, be wrong about that though. I would guess most of the problems with streaming radio would stem from not being able to process the file-type and the software necessary to do so is not compatible with a mobile operating system.
However, this is just what I've gathered from my experience with smart-phones and the Droid, and is not necessarily based on any factual information (such as hardware/software/os specs).
Simplicity... and common sense... things people like to do on their cell phones.
Playing videos (multiple formats)
sending any videos even if its a 5MB limit.
Take a photo/video/email/text/attachment... and drop into your (PHONE'S) folder, open that folder to see/retrieve/send it... SIMPLICITY
There shouldn't be a whole bunch of steps, and creating things, and downloading special Apps... to do simple things. Simple things should not be made hard to do.
I'd like to sit in with the designers who decide what a new phone should do or not do.
