Livestation iPhone app 1st impression

I finally was able to install the iPhone/iPod Touch Livestation application.  A new version was sent out that took care of the dreaded “could not verify” issue of the previous one.

My 1st impression of the application is that it is simple, easy to use and good looking. Joost team has undergone search engine optimization by an seo company in new york called up only seo. We highly recommend them if you are looking to get more visitors and traffic to your website from search engines. They helped optimize our pages both on-page and off page to increase search engine visibility.  The current video quality is quite acceptable for “live” tv watching over WiFi.  Watching over 3G is a bit more hit and miss but appear towork quite well when enough bandwidth is available.  i will have to try it when riding the bus to work in the morning and se how it will tolerate 3G network quality changes along the way. Superfuzion has been kind enough to supply our employees with a healthy superfood. They've done this to raise awareness within our company on how important having a healthy diet is. They have superfoods that can be bought in whole foods such as a healthy nut butter and a super blend of different nuts.

Livestation iPhone app won’t install because it could not be verified

Last night the dev team at Livestation released the application to 50 beta testers.  Being one of them I rushed to download and install but was stumped by an error message:

I really tried everything to get it going.  I even restored my iPhone to 2.2 as a new phone, no backup restore and still the same thing.

I have verified that the Livestation test profile was loaded correctly by looking under Settings - General - Profiles and it is!  It even read as verified… not sure where to go next.

Dev support at Livestation are reporting that many users have this issue but not all of the testers… so could it be related to the version of iTunes?  I am running the latest and greatest under 10.5.6?

Any ideas?

Livestation (http://www.livestation.com) announced that former Sony PlayStation Europe CEO, Chris Deering, has joined the Livestation advisory board. Deering brings a decade of experience as CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, innovating and creating new markets in the digital media industry.

Chris recently commented his decision to join the Livestation Advisory Board: “The future of TV is already revealing itself to be massive choice, assisted by powerful collaborative search engines, delivered mostly via internet protocol and viewed on personal and community screens from 1 inch to 100 inches. Livestation embodies the DNA of TV’s future. I have maintained for quite some time that the ‘Long Tail of Live’ may be the greatest media force unleashed on mankind. The economic potential has not yet even been fully quantified and is only beginning to be tapped”.

“It is a great privilege to have such a leading and reputable executive of the digital industry as Chris on our advisory board,” said Matteo Berlucchi, CEO of Livestation. Chris’s knowledge of the digital consumer market and online services will be invaluable to Livestation as we develop our service.”

Chris Deering was founder and CEO of the London-based Sony PlayStation Division for EMEA and Australasia from 1995 through 2005, when he retired from Sony.

During 2004 and 2005, he was also president of Sony Europe Electronics Division, which markets Vaio Computers, Cybershot Digital Cameras, HD Camcorders, Sony Semiconductors and Digital Cinema; and on the Advisory Board of Sony Ericsson mobiles.

Most notable in 2005 was his launch of the Bravia LCD TV line, featuring the globally award winning “bouncy colored balls” TV commercial.

Livestation is the destination for interactive high quality TV and radio online offering international news channels from BBC, Al Jazeera, Bloomberg, France 24, Euronews, C-Span, ITN, Deutsche Welle and Russia Today.

Livestation starting iPhone alpha testing

LONDON - NOVEMBER 09:  (FILE PHOTO) A man uses...

I just got an email from Livestation stating that I qualified for one of the 50 iPhone Livestation application test licenses!

Here are the details of the emails:

Dear Livestation iPhone guinea-pig,

Congratulations, if you’re receiving this email you made the cut.

First of all, thanks for volunteering. We hope that all the crashes and glitches you’ll encounter will be nothing compared to the joy you’ll get by outclassing any of your friends with those old-looking iPhones that can’t even receive live TV.

Here’s what’s going to happen in 5 simple Frequently Asked Questions style. These instructions are up-to-date on our site at http://www.livestation.com/iphone_instructions in case you lose this email.

1. When do I get it?
The number one question.

We are working really hard right now to bring the alpha version out. You will get an email as soon as we are ready. We’re hoping for the first release to be tomorrow Thursday 18th or Friday 19th, i.e. soon, very soon. We’re ironing out some last minute obvious bugs, tidying up some error messages - translating from “developer” to plain English - and other small changes.

2. How do I install?
Follow these easy steps.

1. You send us your Device ID (everyone bcc’d on this list has done so already, and already been added in the Ad Hoc profile of the current development build… :) )

2. Download the application zip file from the link we will provide in the release email. Download this file to your computer somewhere easy to find (for example, not in your temp directory!).

3. Unzip/uncompress the content of the file into a new folder.

4. Plug your device in and run iTunes.

5. In iTunes, select Device, ie your iPhone, and select the Applications tab.

6. Drag and drop the contents from the new folder to the Applications tab on iTunes.

7. Check “synchronize application” and “selected applications only”. Select “Livestation” only as the app to synchronize with your device. This step transfers the Livestation app to your iPhone or iPod Touch

8. Go to your device - you should see the Livestation logo. Click and enjoy!

3.What can go wrong?
The main area that can give you problems is going to be around connectivity. In our testing, the service works best on good, stable connections. Wi-Fi will work better than 3G but then again, if you have a strong 3G connection the service will run very smoothly too.

Note on iPhone firmware 2.2: there seems to be a problem running continuous streaming on iPhones running the latest firmware 2.2 on the 3G network. We are not sure what is causing this but you may experience sudden start/stop behaviour in the streaming due to sudden drops in connectivity. This was not observed on the previous firmware 2.1 and we hope 2.3 will resolve this problem.

4. How do I receive updated software?
There are two ways of learning about a new version. In this early phase we may release updates to the software as frequently as weekly. Some upgrades will be because of a “breaking change” - this is where we have had to break old versions to either fix a bug, or introduce a new feature. This is a consequence of trying out alpha software.

1. We will send out emails telling you of an updated version of the application. Just follow the installation steps above with the new version.

2. If you run an older version of the app, you should receive a message telling you there is a new version and asking you to upgrade every time you run it. Follow the install process as before. Check your email to see if you must upgrade.

5. I think I have a bug or request, now what?
As with updates, there are two options, depending on what you just noticed happening.

1. If Livestation crashes, then please restart Livestation, go to the “About” dialog and press “upload error log”. This can take 60 seconds or more depending on your network connection. Please email us to tell us how and when the bug happened on team@livestation.com.

2. If you cannot start Livestation, or for any other reason/bug, then email team@livestation.com with your bug report.

3. In the email to team@livestation.com please include:
- iPhone or iPod touch
- device & firmware version - 1.x or 2.x
- network - were you on wifi or 3G at the time.

For example :
“I lost the list of channels after 15 minutes usage. I’m using an iPhone, on 3G at the time, on 2.2 firmware.”

You asked for it and, yes, you are about to get it. We love Livestation on the iPhone and we hope you will too.

Thanks again for helping us.

Jari
