Are these streams using RTSP via MSS? If not, any chance you can publish the raw stream?

A raw MP3 stream would be even better. :)

All of the content EXCEPT the Mormon Channel radio feed are just links to MP3s and so the iPhone downloads them via HTTP. The radio feed, however, is an MMS feed of a WMA formatted file. This is a requirement of the content delivery network vendor we are using.

I'll point you to my previous comment earlier in the thread...

Any update on this? I'm looking for a public mms/wma link to pump this into my Dad's Roku Internet Radio. He'd love it.

Thanks

As of yesterday evening I have been unable to connect to the Mormon Channel radio feed via the iPhone app. I have tried rebooting the iPhone, removing the app and reinstalling it, but I still haven't been able to get the radio feed to work via EDGE, 3G, or WiFi networks for almost a day now. The other feeds seem to work fine in the app. Anyone else having similar problems?

The radio feed seems to have fixed itself on my end as well.

In case this ever occurs again, try rebooting the iPhone. For some odd reason, many iPhone devices occasionally fail to initiate the wireless antennas properly, and a reboot is necessary. Alternatively, turning the phone to Airplane Mode momentarily and then taking it off will correct wireless problems. This can be applied to any iPhone app.

I notice that when I listen to something other than the Mormon Channel (like a scripture chapter), when the file is done playing and I hit a button to get back to the main menu, the app crashes and closes. I was hoping to use it to listen to scriptures on my bus commute, but it's so combersome that I just go to the LDS website and click on the links there.

I would like to see this app "bookmark" where you are in the scriptures, general conference, magazines, etc. Then I could resume listening where I left off in each environment instead of trying to remember the chapter or article I last heard.

And with even more work, this app could be a "hub" of information for LDS members on the iPhone. Access and listen to the current Sunday School reading, listen to scriptures in the current Priesthood/Relief Society lesson, etc.

I have updated to the version 1.5 of Mormon Channel app on my iPhone 3GS. It will be crashed every time when I open it.
Does anyone meet this situation as like as me? When I used the previous version, it had few times to meet this bothered thing on main memu (radio) but not every time. It really bothers me as I like this app very much.

This app contains what I need and love channels: General Conferences, Church magazines,and Scriptures.

If someone knows how to figure it out and share to me, I will appreciate very much.
