We Are Going HD!

hd-screenshotIt has finally happened! We are fully armed and ready to go 720p HD Live Streaming for all our shows.

Today, we are official announcing our roll out of our 720p Live streaming during our Live shows, although, since December we have been recording all out shows in 720p HD, but this is the final step to make this transition complete.

Watch one of DJ Lozo’s Mixes, from December, recorded and published to YouTube in HD to get an idea of what to expect.

DJ Lozo’s Mixes – Episode 20

pic5Some of you may be questioning, if we have gone HD, how are the listeners who’s connections can’t support 720p HD going to be able to listen and watch? Well, don’t you worry! You will still be able to watch as always in our standard definition quality that you know and love, that has not changed, we were only going to roll out HD, if we were able to stream in both 720p and in our normal quality we have always used.

Our HD feed has its own page on our website, you can find it at the address at the bottom of this post, you will be able to see everyone in the standard definition can see, the chat, other feeds and information, except your feed will be opt in to view our stream in 720p HD.

RCD Radio on Your Mobile

iphone-stream-lock-hqEXCITING NEWS!!! YOU CAN NOW LISTEN TO RCD RADIO ON YOUR MOBILE USING OUR NEW MOBILE SITE!!!!

Mobile site can be found at http://m.rcdradio.com

Since January we have been privately testing (Not making it as public) a new RCD Radio site with a audio only feed streaming at different bit rates, over the past few days we have finally rolled out a brand new mobile site to the public with its new audio feeds.

We were first running the mobile site on a very simple HTML coded site, which only had brief information about the mobile site, buttons to select the quality and a back button, but over the weekend we finally made our brand new mobile site public.

iphone-stream-shq-show-with-lozoWe have 4 quality feeds to choose from on our mobile site, all our audio feeds are hosted on Ustream.tv, they are the same audio feed from RCD Radio, but they are at different bit rates depending on where you are listening, whether on Wifi or on a cellular network, obviously data charges still apply to your cellular network when you listen to RCD Radio on the go.

Qualities:

  • Super High Quality – Bit Rate: 192Kbps at 44100Hz
  • High Quality – Bit Rate: 128Kbps at 44100Hz
  • Medium Quality – Bit Rate: 80Kbps at 22050Hz
  • Low Quality – Bit Rate: 32Kbps at 22050Hz

studio-pic26Remember, data charges still apply to your cellular network when you listen to RCD Radio on the go.

We are still changing things with the mobile site as time goes by to make it better, we would appreciate your feedback, if you would like to see anything added, (Baring in mind it is a small and light site) you can by getting in touch with us: http://rcdradio.com/contact/

For more information on our mobile site and for the list of devices it has been tested and tried on, please visit http://rcdradio.com/mobile/

Live Streaming Services – We will be using both Ustream.tv and Justin.tv

RCD RADIO NO LONGER BROADCASTS ON JUSTIN.TV DUE TO ITS SHUTTING DOWN ON AUGUST 5TH 2014 – THIS BLOG POST HOWEVER REMAINS HERE FOR REFERENCE.

Out site launches in just a few weeks now and we have had to decide how and where we are going to stream the RCD Radio Content online.

At this stage we will not be using a shoutcast server as it is currently not in the funds this time round, but we will be using our main services Ustream.tv and Justin.tv as our streaming service for the time being.

 

 

When we go Live at the main RCD Radio Studio the webcam’s will be turned on and there will be a visual experience.

Both the Ustream and Justin feeds will be showing the same visual and audio audio to both services.

As we will have a live page at RCD Radio, we will only be using one feed as our default, we will be mainly using the Ustream feed on the RCD Radio Live page but the Justin.tv option is there for anyone to find on the JTV website, it is so we are using more platforms instead of using one and it may help us reach out to more people this way.

You can join our Ustream.tv crowd and get email notifications when we go live, when we create a new event and reminders when a event is about to start on Ustream.tv, to join the Ustream crowd, go to http://ustream.rcdradio.com

If you have a JTV account, you can follow us on Justin.tv and get notifications when we go live on JTV, to follow us on JTV, go to http://jtv.rcdradio.com

Below are both the Ustream.tv and the Justin.tv feed embed’s
