Cool. After 2+ months of waiting, finally something new and useful. Checking it out now.

***** fantastic. After 10 seconds of use, I went onto TELEMAX (to see what it is) and it froze up my iPhone, forcing a hard reset. :(

you need wifi connection



No you dont..... kinda....

Start up app with a wifi connection available. Now leave wifi area... it will still work on edge or 3g as long as you dont close the app (or jailbreak and use backgrounder to keep it running in the background). It only does a wifi check on startup.

This is crazy!, No 1G Touch support and only WiFi.

Nice find!

Many other wifi-only apps work the same way.

Ustream has no problem streaming buffer-free even on EDGE

How come this thing doesn't download to the 1G iPod Touch?! It streams over WiFi, so I don't see why its not compatible!! :mad:

2 stars for the effort but:

1. WiFi Only, (it can be hacked using VoIP/SSH from Jailbroke phones)
2. The official Obama stream isn't even available on there
3. Can't see your favored streams when you login
4. No full screen view
5. Can't open any stream, only the ones they want you to see

I'll wait for 2.0

Did they change something? I was able to install it on my ipod touch 1g fine and watch the inauguration stream. It's kind of choppy even with a strong wifi connection, but it works.

Ditto, just downloaded directly to ipod touch 1g and it's working for me. I do agree the video is quite choppy by the audio is fine

3g = Wifi

So how exactly do you make streaming work over 3G with a Jailbroken iPhone?

Once again, AT&T is so worried about their bad 3G service, things that we should be able to use, we can't. How come AT&T has a TV service for their normal cell phones and they don't have a problem with that, but run it on the iPhone and it has to be WiFi only. It's getting harder and harder to justify 30.00 for data services when they force us to use WiFi.....

"Ustream" is a terrible product name. Worse would be "Pstream," but both names bring the same image to mind.

Nice idea but worthless app.

There is ZERO CONTENT worth watching, so it gets deleted.

Even edge= wifi

I think thats one of the best things with a jailbroken phone, not that i need to use 3g instead of wifi.

Yea us poor suchkas!!! How dumb we are to enjoy iPhones that are fast and responsive, that don't randomly brick themselves once a week, and that don't suffer massive hardware trauma as a result of jb'ing.

Don't get me wrong I was a hack maniac with the iPhone from about jun 30th 07 til Nov of this year, but JB'ing is not worth the associated bugs in performance.

That is unless you are unlocking the phone, but if its a simple Jailbreak, you put yourself at great risk for no reason. What do you really gain?

dTunes? awesome, but ultimately unnecessary
Cycorder? same

Two major apps, beyond that the phone runs like crap, app launches stall, it crashes more, the battery suffers, it powers down randomly.

Lot of BAD associated with the 3G jailbreaking, much more than ever gets talked about. In my small group of Devs, we've bricked 3 iPhone 3Gs since july with normal JB, followed by normal use. They just randomly, eventually, shut off. They go to the pineapple logo and thats all folks.

BTW I've jailbroken my 2G iphone under every single firmware release for 1.5 years and its performance/behavior has never changed. Interesting.

zero content and limited to Wifi = why bother?

even if you have content, 3G is where its at. If we can't stream on the go, then we don't need to stream, period.

I firmly believe in the following "IF" & "THEN" for iPhone developing...

IF WiFi is required, THEN you might as well use a computer.

What risk? You can always reformat the memory and restore back to the standard OS.

There's no way to record movies without Cycorder. MxTube is a life saver; my toddler wants to see his favorite movie and doesn't have to put up with stuttering. Plus I can install all the appstore apps for free saving me a few hundred bucks.
