Ratings and Reviews

Easy to use, works great.


We use Wowza Media Server extensively in our business and were looking for a low-cost option for streaming live video. I downloaded the GoCoder app, followed the quick configuration steps for our server, and then fired up the app.

It worked great, connecting to the server on my first attempt with no problems. I tested several different video sizes, including HD, at various bit-rates. I experienced no crashes or problems with the app.

One note: when running the app, my iPhone 4S got a little warm, and I noticed that it did drain the battery a bit over a longer streaming session. But I wouldn't expect anything different. The app captures, transcodes, and streams live video, using wifi the whole time. So if you're going to do long video sessions, you'll want to be fully charged and/or have a power supply handy.

Great app! Easy to use!


I was scrambling to find a live streaming solution for an event last night. After running into technical problems with several sites (complicated router/firewall configurations, etc.) I found one that could stream from an iPhone using this app. After setting up an account on the site it told me exactly how to configure the setting in the app. It was very easy and I was so happy that it just worked! I had to stream at a low quality setting due to limited bandwidth at the venue. This is not a fault of the app and it was easy to choose a setting that worked for what was available. The video was okay and the sound was great which was perfect for a music and comedy performance. Very happy that I found this app and will surely be using it again.

Buyer beware - just bought brand new iPod touch and app crashed on start


I use GoCoder all the time. But on my brand new iPod touch with latest iOS it crashes on start.

I am sitting in apple store with one to one trainer. This is not an apple issue.

Wowza please advise if you are aware. I LOVE this app and that is why I gave 2 stars. But truly should be 2 star since it doesn't work AT ALL!
