Some settings tips:

1. To indicate that bandwidth use takes precedence, pass a value for bandwidth and 0 for quality. OS Broadcaster transmits video at the highest quality possible within the specified bandwidth. If necessary, OS Broadcaster reduces picture quality to avoid exceeding the specified bandwidth. In general, as motion increases, quality decreases.

2. To indicate that quality takes precedence, pass 0 for bandwidth and a numeric value for quality. OS Broadcaster uses as much bandwidth as required to maintain the specified quality. If necessary, OS Broadcaster reduces the frame rate to maintain picture quality. In general, as motion increases, bandwidth use also increases.

3. To indicate that both bandwidth and quality are equally important, pass numeric values for both parameters. OS Broadcaster transmits video that achieves the specified quality and that doesn't exceed the specified bandwidth. If necessary, OS Broadcaster reduces the frame rate to maintain picture quality without exceeding the specified bandwidth.

Watch Stream in Android? Hey guys! Your app works really well... watched it on a PC, on a mac (both Chrome browsers), and on an iphone. Worked great. Tried to watch the stream on two differrent android devices using chrome and got a black screen and no sound. Does this have to do with the sound codec? I tried streaming from laptop and could watch fine on android. Anyway, I can probably live with it, but I would love to know if there is a fix or if I am doing something wrong! Thanks

Works well to Nginx Updating my review now the initial problems have been fixed. It now works very well with an Nginx+rtmp server but if I try to connect to a password-protected Wowza server (Netdna CDN) then it says it is connected but doesn't challenge me for username and password. Otherwise the controls are very well presented now and it is easy to use. Is there any reason why MP3/AAC/AAC+ can't be provided as a codec option? If the reason is licensing costs then maybe this could be a "premium" feature of a non-free version.
