pic077

From all of us here at RCD Radio, we would like to thank everyone who has been involved with RCD Radio in 2015, it has been a massive year for us and we are going to continue this in to 2016.

Our main highlight this year was our 26 hour broadcast we did in July, hitting our record for the most unique website visits, most people in our IRC chat at the same time and most amount of viewers watching us on our Live stream, what a exhausting 26 hour show that was, you can still watch the entire 26 hour show on our website, by going to http://july18.rcdradio.com/theshow and you can find all the highlight videos, schedule and pictures, all at http://july18.rcdradio.com

Apart from RCD Radio’s Longest Ever Radio Show, most commonly known as  July 18, our audience base has increased over the past year, with lots of new shows popping up before our summer event we did this year, unfortunately towards the end of this year, our availability has been in decline, but we should be doing a few more of these shows in the new year.

That is the past, here is what we are working on in 2016.

I can reveal that in 2016, we shall be releasing a brand new website design which has been in the works since the summer of this year, brand new design that will look amazing on large monitors and TV screens, perfect so you can see more of the stream at the same time. – The image above is a little preview of the new home page.

pic5We have been working on a 720p version of our stream which works very well, unfortunately we are having to look for a new streaming service which can support multiple bit rates of our feed, we have already rolled out 720p recordings for our shows on YouTube, we hope to have our feed in 720p HD very soon in 2016 thanks to our brand new Intel Core I7 machine. – View our full studio specs at http://rcdradio.com/studio/

We hope you will continue to support RCD Radio in 2016, thank you once again for your support in 2015 and a Happy New Year to you all, see you in the new year!

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/

DJ Lozo will be Live from 6pm UK Time and DJ Luemas155 will be Live with Rock Night, Episode 2, from 7pm UK Time, you can RSVP both events by following the links at the bottom of this post.

Hopefuly this time, both episodes will be on YouTube on Sunday or Monday, as many of you know, the recording failed last time and we could only recover the last 50 minutes, but hopefully, that wont happen this time, plus it will be in High Quality.
