[Icecast] Streaming Council Debate on Software Patents via Cell Phone?

There are a couple of ways to do this.  Both assume the mobile phone has 
Internet connectivity.

The standards-based method is to use 3GP RTSP/RTP LATM streams and 
AAC/HE-AAC/aacPlus, which is built into several mobile devices already on 
several different mobile device platforms.  This would involve using the 
appropriate encoder such as ORBAN Opticodec-PC and Darwin Streaming Server.


The second way to do this, and I have currently been testing, is to use an 
Icecast2 server with an encoder of your choice and BetaPlayer, which is 
available for several different WindowsCE mobile devices, and supports 
several different codecs including OggVorbis and AAC/HE-AAC.  Testing has 
revealed that AAC/HE-AAC streaming works fine, but there is lots of audio 
skipping with OggVorbis streams.


I have been testing with a Verizon XV6600 EVDO device on the U.S. Verizon 
CDMA Network.
