What Android (phone) players are available to watch webcasts with? The only one I've seen mentioned is Daroon/Wondershare but I can't get it to work.

Our officially-supported solution for viewing webcasts is a Windows-based PC with Windows Media Player. So we have not tested or verified solutions for other platforms. However, some of our creative users have found solutions that work, such as the Good player on the iPad, etc. I am not familiar with any solutions for the Android platform.

I am using the Wondershare on a phone, it works for me, I'm streaming to the EVO 3D right now. I've ordered an Android 4.0 video set-top device to see if we can use it as a webcast receiver. I'm not sure why it is't working for you.

Launch wondershare --> Select Library --> Select Streaming --> New Stream ms://stream.lds.org/webcast

Thanks. I had downloaded an old version; I just updated it. But it still won't work. I tried both http and mms. It starts to open but then just goes back to the home screen. It appears I have the codecs. Maybe I'll try some other players.

This is awesome! I confirm that it works with Wondershare on a droid incredible running android 4.0.

I did have to start it with mms:// as http:// didn't work.

I also couldn't get the 2 test streams to work, but my stream that I started worked great. I recommend starting a stream and trying that.

Wondershare works for me on an Asus Transform (original), HTC EVO 3D and now my new Galaxy S3 - it does require the mms: I've ordered an android Set-top device.
