Editors' review

Veetle is a live streaming app for your iPhone that is built with mobile use in mind, including private broadcasting, local storage, and more. The result is an app that can work as a live broadcasting tool for your phone just as easily as it could a video recording tool. That flexibility, combined with deep social integration, makes it a useful tool for event managers, marketers, school principles, and others who need to reach an audience on the go.

After setting up Veetle, you have quite a few options. Most of them don't unlock until you log in with your Facebook account, but you can use the app without logging in, which is a nice feature. To do so, start recording, which will be done in private mode until you create an account with the service. You can then invite people to watch your private live stream with the app. It offers multiple connection options, including Facebook, SMS, Mail, or Veetle's internal systems. You can record indefinitely (as long as your battery and data plan allow) and change things onscreen with the tap of a button. There is also a chat function so you can ask or answer questions live within your video.

Veetle is a great tool that allows you to record videos that are then stored to your local device, stream video live to friends or the public, and connect with people through the app to see who is streaming something live at any given time. The interface is very mobile-friendly and it runs surprisingly fast, considering the load being carried by Veetle's servers. It's a great app for anyone with local live streaming needs.

    "Most Innovated Program and Website To Date"

    January 08, 2012   |   By metaltech007

    Version: Veetle 1.0

    Pros

    HUGE selection of channels. Movies, tv, documentaries, live cams, music and more.

    Open forums and live chat so viewers can communicate with each other and the broadcasters in real time.

    With each passing day more people are broadcasting higher quality programming due to the cost of high-speed broadband going down in most areas.

    So far immune to most copyright issues. As long as broadcasters broadcasting possible copyrighted material do so in moderation, meaning 12 hour streams every 24 hours instead of 72 plus hour streams, the copyright police seem to leave it alone. Although, I see many who broadcast such material 24/7 for many days with no issues. I believe Vettle something in place which keeps this site protected from such claims as this is the ONLY program and website I know of that's open and popular that still remains online without issues.

    Cons

    Comments disappearing. The automated Veetle comment mod can be very schizophrenic and will delete your comment if you use a banned word. Which words are banned and when I don't know. Swear words of course, but there have been times my comments were deleted because I used the word "I'll" or the year "2012." I test this by splitting up my full comment to find the banned word, and many times just minutes or hours later, I'll be able to use the banned word. So if you leave a lengthy comment be sure to copy and paste it so you can go through it and remove whatever word it's not allowing you to use. See how silly this is, I spent how many words talking about mostly a non-issue that shouldn't even be an issue.

    Too many people broadcast in lower bitrate quality but that trend is slowly turning around.

    You need at least a 3MB download speed to view higher quality channels. Even though a high-quality may run at 1,500 bitrate, the peaks can be double that. 5MB or higher is recommended.

    Summary

    The best way to navigate is from the main page click on "channels" then to the left will be categories. Movies are "Entertainment" and TV shows are now "Shows." Then there is All, Animation, Comedy, Education, Gaming, Mobile, Sports, Music, News and Religion.

    I was a longtime viewer turned broadcaster. This is now one of the top 3 sites I spend my time on. I love the ability to interact and connect with other users and for the most part it's a "troll free" environment. There is no Porn as some claim, in Veetle's early days there was some, but very little, now a porn channel wouldn't last more than a few minutes if at all. I haven't seen one in more than 4 months.

    For windows pc and mobile users it's flawless, but since the last Mac OS upgrades/updates there have been issues with Mac users finding many channels unable to play, but Veetle will have a fix for it soon. Some Mac users report no issues though.

    Come join the new revolution in entertainment, it can't be stopped. SOPA and the Protect IP bills and similar ones WILL NOT survive congress if we THE PEOPLE, THE TECH PEOPLE, ban together and bring in the new world together. Peace
