How to listen to the live stream?
1) On your computer, open your favourite streaming music player, e.g. VLC and type in the url.
2) Click the share button in the app, select a compatible remote control application, e.g. Bubbleupnp which will forward the url to the corresponding player/speaker e.g. XBMC/Bubbleupnp.
How you might want to use app.
1) Baby monitor - put your old phone running LANmic in your baby's room while you listen to the stream on your computer/speaker to monitor any abnormality
2) Child monitor - while your children is playing games on your Android device, leave this app running in the background while you listen to the stream on your computer/speaker to monitor your children without bring in line of sight
3) One way communication - While your upnp renderer/speaker is running, initiate playback of your Live LANmic stream from your mobile to broadcast a messge, e.g. to call your children to come down for dinner.
4) Two way communication - Have two devices running LANmic as well as Bubbleupnp (or similar), sent the live stream to each other, so you can listen and talk to each other. Note: there is likely to be significant time delay due to the player's buffer.
5) Record/spy on someone's communication - With the device's screen off and LANmic running, play the live stream elsewhere and save the live stream using application such as VLC.
For no delay, use RTSP AAC and set buffer to 0 seconds. Otherwise, HTTP using wave have time delay around 100ms whereas mp3 have around 500ms delay, if you configure your streaming player to use minimum or no buffer. VLC provides the lowest time delay playing wave stream when buffer is set to zero. XBMC have around 5 seconds time delay whether it is wave or mp3 encoded.
Note: If using HTTP AMR, VLC will need at least 30 seconds to connect before playback starts with over 30 seconds delay.
This app will only work on your local area network. The live stream is will not pass through to the internet unless you setup port forwarding to your device.
