It just works
Got it working with Wowza Cloud in like no time.
Live Button is a Problem
This app works well, but one major problem with it is the larger red Live button on the screen: the only thing that distinguishes “live” from “off” is a white outline around it. It is VERY EASY to think you are live and not be, and even worse, be live when you don’t think you are! That button should change color altogether so that it is immediately clear whether you are live-streaming or not!
Easy to use, works great.
We use Wowza Media Server extensively in our business and were looking for a low-cost option for streaming live video. I downloaded the GoCoder app, followed the quick configuration steps for our server, and then fired up the app.
It worked great, connecting to the server on my first attempt with no problems. I tested several different video sizes, including HD, at various bit-rates. I experienced no crashes or problems with the app.
One note: when running the app, my iPhone 4S got a little warm, and I noticed that it did drain the battery a bit over a longer streaming session. But I wouldn't expect anything different. The app captures, transcodes, and streams live video, using wifi the whole time. So if you're going to do long video sessions, you'll want to be fully charged and/or have a power supply handy.
