We've been cooking some hot stuff coming in Smart 6.3! This time we've focused on enhancements to the files workflow.

- Up until now the app had limited file management options... But no more! Smart 6.3 introduces a powerful management interface for you video files and their associated metadata. This enables some exciting new workflows such as the ability to do Live & Store and then upload that file to YouTube right from the device.

- Are you in an area with zero connectivity but plan to upload your video later? We've now added a "Store" mode that allows you to use LU-Smart to record your video, manage it in the file manager, and then upload it later on. We feel this will only deepen your love of Smart as we now offer modes to Go Live, Store & Forward, Live & Store, and Store Only!

- Get a text you need to respond to while you've got an upload going? No worries! We can now upload while the app is running in the background so you can respond to mom in a timely manner.

- Rounding out our metadata offering in Smart, we have done a few "exciting" things. 1- The metadata side carriage file will now be sent at both the beginning and end of a session. This includes any session other than "Store Only." 2- metadata has added fields and the XML file is now version controlled... So as we make updates to the format, your downstream systems will keep chugging along.

- Not sure what channels are available? With our new channel status indicator you can 100% sure that the channel you've selected is good-to-go. Next to every channel appears a green or a red dot. Green dot means available. We trust you're smart enough to figure out what the red one means.

What's new in LiveU Smart 6.1?

- Here at LiveU we know the need to be live now sometimes means you'll be live under non-optimal streaming conditions. To this end we've added the ability to record a full resolution copy of you're live stream... while live!

- Worried about running out of space now that we can save all these video files to your device? Don't fret, there's a new time-counter telling you approximately how much storage is left on your device while you're in a session that records video to your device.

- Is the audio too loud? or maybe you've got an interview with a candidate for "quietest speaker ever" -- LU-Smart now has audio gain control. You can tap the audio indicator icon and slide the gain up and down. You'll notice that it moves a green indicator next to the VU meters up and down, which as luck would have it, is also able to be dragged to set the level!

- Video without metadata is like bread without butter. We've added a new metadata feature to be able to send both user entered and automatically generated information on session start.

- Had too much coffee today? Feeling a bit shaky? LU-Smart now has an option for Optical Image Stabilization! On supported devices it's enabled by default, so if you're feeling super confident that you don't need the additional help keeping the camera steady.

- Need a lower delay stream? how about a higher bitrate one? Great news! LU-Smart now supports delays as low as 1 second, and bitrates up to 12 Mbps! Tread lightly on the higher bitrate, if you're on a capped data plan.

- Location service now supports three modes of operation: 1- never send your location, 2- send your location only while LU-Smart is running, and 3- Always send your location. If you're looking to use LiveU's "Be First," make sure you've got location services set to Always

First of all Android does not work, it can't cast while iPhone can with exact same setting, second, waiting for my 2nd license to arrive over email/text for over half an hour on iOS since Android doesn't work and still waiting. What is wrong with you?? We've develop apps too, this is grossly irresponsible to push am app of this buggy into prime time and charge people for it.

Tv Cameraman here. Works well on Iphone devices. But please work on improving stability on android devices and most importantly please please please give us actual manual exposure settings in that app, exposure compensation is not enough! And hopefully build a better camera software so that it handles highlights slightly better and generaly try to unlock potential of those iphones cameras.

app seems to be working well in our tests with a liveu server and Huawei and iOS phones, but not with Samsung S8 and S9. Bandwith builds up nicely to 12mbps, then goes down to max 2mbps. does not recover.
