Ripcasting Audio lets you do live broadcast of mac’s audio, and listen to it on a different mac or iOS device such as iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. You can use it, for example, to monitor the audio capture by your mac’s internal microphone from a different mac in another room, or on your iPhone when away. No additional software is required to listen to the broadcast.

Using Ripcasting Audio is easy. Simply starting Ripcasting Audio on the mac you want to broadcast the audio, and click the Connection button to obtain the remote connection URL, Login and Passcode. To listen to the audio remotely, simply open a browser and enter the URL, Login and Passcode.

The app is also light-weight and unobtrusive, so you can leave at the background while running other tasks on the mac.

Ratings and Reviews

Works as advertised….

Mac user since 1984

It’s a little kludgey to set up, particularly when installing the optional drivers to turn off the mac’s internal speaker and still be able to stream the system audio. That said, I did get it functioning inside of ten minutes. What would be very sweet is a dedicated iOS app that connects to the ripcast stream from your Mac. Using mobile Safari works as advertised, but the web site log on screen isn’t optimized for a mobile device display.

Those are all minor grumps. This app deserves the four stars I gave it.
