Hi Guys!

My wife and I both use a Authenticated UK Proxy over Wifi on our 3GSs from Japan where we live.

She updated her phone to 4.0 this week.
Since then, when she tries to read a video stream Quicktime ignores the Proxy settings.
I did a bit of tinkering and found that anonymous proxies are still working.
The gripe is with proxies that require authentication.

So to summarize it, in Firmware 4.0 quicktime does not accept proxies with authentication anymore. It decides to simply bypass them!?!

That is the weirdest thing I have ever seen.
We are in a bind because anonymous proxies only last a few hours.
We have subscribed to a paying proxy, but it only works on my 3.1.3 phone now.

If anyone has the merest clue of what could be done, I would greatly appreciate their advice...

Cheers, Moh
