    Media Player on Treo650?

    Stopped by and looked at the Treo650 at the Sprint store this afternoon. Though I've been in the market for a Windows-based Smartphone, I gotta admit - it was pretty sweet. Full-blown PPC devices are too big, and the Smartphone devices are OK, but the interface was somewhat limiting. I liked that the Treo was usable 1-handed, but the stylus was still an option. If Verizon doesn't announce something to compete with it soon, I may take my business to Sprint when my contract is up in a month or so, EVDO (and the $45 VZW data plan) be damned!

    My one question - is there a media player for the Palm OS that can play WMA as well as stream media from a MMS? I was looking around Handango, but didn't see anything that fit the bill for both, though I think MMPlayer played WMA files. I have this grand scheme to make my music collection available via MMS, so this would be a key feature for me. I'm not a huge fan of RealPlayer...

    WMA files can be played by Pocket Tunes. It doesn't have the ability to play them streaming yet. What's a MMS?

    MMS = Microsoft Media Server. You can create server side playlists and stream them via the web to MMS clients over the MMS protocol with a link such as MMS://my.domain.com/playlist or HTTP, but I think even over HTTP, the client still needs to support the MMS protocol. I want to say Windows Media Player in the latest Windows Mobile versions will do this, but haven't been able to test it yet.
