I can't remember if the podcast went over this, but can it archive the stream? or will I have to rely on someone else to do it, or heaven for bid wget which will work until the stream stops. Lol! If it does archive streams can I transfer it to my computer with itunes share etc?

Hi sarah, regarding the archiving, no, but if you download boss jock studio, you could pach it through the app and you can record the stream from their. I hope that answers your question.

Hmm Is the thing easy to set up? I have had boss jock for 2 years and have loved it I don't know anything about how to set up that integrated apps or what ever you called it on the podcast.nAlsoI am not planning on monitoring so I can't ware headphones during the event(s). Hmm I might suggest archival to the dev and see what he says. We'll see.

attempting to connect to an ice cast server and the password I have but the source I don't appear to have. Am I missing something and also does it need the http protocol in front of the hostname?

Hello,
from the review on appstore, this app has also some controllers to verify voice quality.
Are also these accessible?
