EyeTV Live3G streams live TV from Macs to iPhones

updated 12:15 pm EST, Thu December 17, 2009

Web app operates over 3G connections

Elgato has introduced EyeTV Live3G, a new web app designed to stream live TV from a Mac to an iPhone over a 3G connection. The app is a part of EyeTV's 3.3 update, and utilizes HTTP Live Streaming technology, combined with H.264 video and AAC audio. The latter allows hardware acceleration, for better video and battery performance.

The web app does lack features found in a dedicated iPhone app, such as a program guide, show details and editable recording schedules. Live3G is free to access for any Mac user running EyeTV 3.3, connecting by way of mobile Safari and Elgato's My EyeTV locator service. Macs must have at least a Core 2 Duo processor and an EyeTV tuner.

    Ha ha.

    So you can't have an app that streams, but you can build a website and have Safari do the dirty work of streaming. Take THAT AT&T.

    AT&T laughs last..

    WiFi works just fine. 3G, even with 4 bars, my client sees the EyeTV, but I get a circle just spins and spins.

    This "web app" has been out for a very long time. It was meant as a demonstration of how the EyeTV iPhone app works so people could decide if they wanted to spend the money on it or not.
