iOS app for receiving webcast

Postby dougj » Mon Nov 03, 2014 9:12 am

Anyone know of an iOS (iPhone, iPad) app that will receive a webcast stream? I have one that receives only audio and the others I've tried don't receive anything. This is for in the U.S. Thanks.

I'd suggest trying VLC for iOS.

Thanks. Unfortunately, that takes me to the Mac OS X app store and is not available.

I'm looking for an iPhone/ipad vlc app that plays our webcasts.

Did you click the App Store link while on your iOS device?

Yes. I can see the videolan webpage fine on my iOS device. However, the download is not available in the U.S. store.

OK. I was confused when you said it was taking you to the "Mac OS X app store".

That's ok. Thanks for the lead for the mac app. I'll keep it in mind and maybe try to find a way to get it.

BTW, nice work on your hymn site! :)

That's odd, the link says "vlc-ios" in the URL. Not sure why it's ending up in Mac land unless the Apple store is redirecting you. The page makes it clear that it's intended to be a version for iOS. Perhaps your device doesn't meet the 6.1 minimum? There's another link for older devices.
