Default Mobile stream support

We have been using Livestream for a couple months and having the mobile stream is great! We have been able to watch the stream live on iPhones/iPod Touches and Android phones. All of a sudden a couple of weeks ago the stream isn't as stable on Android. Did something change? Any ideas?

Thats interesting. What is happening on Android? Is it crashing the player, or is it just a quality issue?

You can see the Android devices trying to load in the stream (buffer) and eventually it says that it can't be displayed.

This is happening over wifi, 3G, and different Android phones. Specifically, it is happening on Verizon phones.

Can you report specific phone model and Android OS version?
Are people having this issue with OS 2.1 or 2.2 for example?

If someone has it working on an Android phone please post the above info as well.

Are you sure the channel is mobile compatible?
One test is to set up a live stream to your own Channel with Procaster using a mobile compatible preset and then give it a few moments (30 seconds or so)and then test on your Nexus One Android.

Unhappy Won't play on Acer Android Honeycomb 3.0.1 under new Flash

Running Acer Iconia Tablet A500 Android Honeycomb 3.0.1 with latest Flash version. Ustream videos play in Android browser even in HD without a glitch. Livestream boots the Flash to the initial picture with play button overlay so it should play. But, it always boots the video player selection box to send the play to the player, not playing it in the browser other sites do. The players, the Android standard player or Mobo player never play the Flash...just sit there waiting.

Honeycomb is ONLY FOR TABLETS! It's NOT a phone, ever! Please adjust your code to stop treating Android Honeycomb 3.x calls as tiny cellphones. Thanks. Flash's latest version is fully functional in Honeycomb's browser, just like any Win or OSX box. Seeon.tv, ustream, lots of others play first class on the dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset.

Thanks....

Hello,

Since you are using Android, it seems the player is recognizing it as a mobile device and delivering an RTSP stream to the tablet instead of the standard Flash stream. Are you able to change the settings on your browser to load the desktop version of the site?

I found these instructions which may be helpful:

1. Open the Android Honeycomb browser on your tablet.

2. In the address bar, type: about:debug and press enter.

3. Now open the browser's settings by tapping the icon in the very top-right corner of your screen (it looks like four horizontal lines) and selecting "Settings" from the drop-down menu that appears.

4. On the left side of the screen, tap the section labeled "Debug."

5. On the right side of the screen, tap the item labeled "UAString," then select "Desktop."

6. Press the back button (in the very bottom-left corner of your screen) to exit the browser's settings.

7. In the browser's address bar, type: about:debug once more; this will disable debugging mode and return the browser to its normal state.
