With Elgato EyeTV 3.3 the Mac transmits videos to iPhone via 3G network – Macitynet.it
Thanks to the new version 3.3 of the Elgato EyeTV program it is now possible to transmit the videos recorded on the computer and also the live TV broadcasts, directly from the Mac to the iPhone using the 3G cellular connection. To make streaming to iPhone possible, Elgato has used the HTTP Live Streaming technology introduced with iPhone 3.0: the latter uses the H.264 formats for video and AAC for audio to offer the best possible transmission quality.
While on the Mac it is necessary to use the EyeTV program in the new version 3.3, from the iPhone it is necessary to access the Web application EyeTV Live3G: the latter allows you to connect iPhone to our Mac at home. The Elgato Web App is already available and reachable from this Web address. Thanks to streaming via cellular network, the Elgato solution now completes the functions already available with EyeTV, the iPhone application, thanks to which it was possible to stream with the Mac but only via Wi-Fi.
The developer points out that the new Live3G feature takes advantage of iPhone hardware acceleration to offer better performance and also longer battery life. As for the system requirements Live3G requires the iPhone 3.1 operating system (works on the iPhone and also on the iPod touch) while for the Mac you need a system with Intel Core 2 Duo.EyeTV version 3.3 a free update for users who already own EyeTV 3, while Live3G for streaming on iPhone available for free from this web page.
