I am pleased to announce the beta release of the LiveATC Mobile Web Site.   I have mentioned in other posts that mobile applications are under development for both Blackberry and Android, and those will be released some time in roughly the next 30-45 days.  The LiveATC Mobile Site should fill the gap for mobile browser users who prefer to not run dedicated apps or want an alternative way to listen to live feeds.

The site has been tested on a number of platforms, and only works on phones with media browsers that support MP3 streaming.  So far these are known to include:

  • iPhone/iPod Touch
  • Blackberry Bold (and possible some other Blackberry models)
  • Android (OS 2.0 and later) - Android 1.x will work with the LiveATC Android app once released

Try the beta mobile site out (must visit using a mobile browser) when you get a chance: m.liveatc.net

Other features will be added in future releases.

Thanks,
Dave

Just wanted to let you know that it works fine on the Curve 8900, as well.  At first the media player on the phone said there was an error opening the file, but second attempt at listening to the KMYF Socal Approach feed turned up fruitful.  I have now found a good way to drain my phone's battery in no time.  grin

Big thank you to everyone that runs the site and especially to everyone providing feeds.  Keep up the awesome work grin

Everything loads and plays fine on my Pearl 8130, but my media player times out after 27 seconds once the stream is playing.  Same everytime.  Any ideas?

That is probably the BIS (Blackberry's server) blocking the connection, or the built-in media player behaving badly.

Maybe upgrade to a Bold?  Just kidding.  Well, only a little.

I can tell you that developing for Blackberry is challenging, primarily because of the stark difference in capabilities of the different phone models.

I totally hear ya.  In two months I'm planning on upgrading to a Storm2 grin (I could do it now, but I'm being the nice guy and waiting until the wife is eligible for an upgrade too rolleyes )

Regardless, thank you for the hard work and I know I'll be able to enjoy the mobile site soon.

New user checking in to let you know that this works great on the Motorola Droid! I'm looking forward to the Android application.

Thanks!

I updated my VZW Tour to the new OS 5.0 over the weekend and the mobile site just doesn't work.  It was a godsend before that, but I can't get a stream now.  Wish I knew why, it suits my needs so much better than the full site.

Wish I knew why.  Unfortunately, the whole Blackberry device lineup is undergoing constant change and hard to keep track of.  And if the browser would simply conform with W3C standards it would make developers' lives a bit easier.  That and the screen size limitation are some of the reasons you don't see many people really using the browsers on the Blackberry devices.

What exactly doesn't work for you?

When the Blackberry app is out this will all be kind of moot anyway.

It just doesn't load the feed.  When I select open the feed doesn't open like it should/used to/does with the normal site.  I'm certain it can't be anything on your end, but regardless of whose end it's on it's on my end! I'll try to stream from BOLT tomorrow; Opera Mini doesn't seem to be able to stream feeds/audio.

No luck with BOLT. It just opens the default browser. Even when I try to point it to the mobile site it still redirects to the full site, so its a moot point on how it loads the feed. Looking fwd to the app, then! Let me know if you want/need beta testers. I should be able to get you good usage in varying conditions.
