Sending High Quality Audio Through mimoCall

Troy Grady challenged our engineers by insisting he needed a better audio quality on mimoCall. It turned out to be easier than we thought and with the latest release of the mimoCall web client, we've added a switch to turn on High Quality audio in stereo so that Troy can transmit his awesome guitar riffs through mimoCall into his mimoLive live broadcast.

You can try this for yourself by appending "?hqaudio=true" to any mimoCall URL when using the Chrome web client.

After a few tests, we will add a better UI for this, with ability to control this from within mimoLive.

Making mimoLive Sound Great

Troy Grady is pushing the limits of guitarists and of live streaming. Announcing his first live broadcast show, with guest Michael Angelo Batio, he also gives a quick peek behind the scenes into the technology that powers his new show: "Our setup with mimoLive provides an incredible level of broadcast quality. How crazy is that? [...] We're now entering the year of do-it-yourself, near tv-quality broadcast, which is really amazing for us."

He's particularly excited about mimoCall, the new feature of mimoLive that let's you bring in guests via the Internet into your broadcast easily and effortlessly. Just a couple of days ago, we have enabled high quality audio on this technology, which allows Troy to get callers into his show who play on their instruments to get immediate feedback from the guitar masters in the studio.

FotoMagico 5.3 crashes

Numerous customers were suddenly experiencing crashes with FotoMagico 5.3 purchased directly from our FastSpring store starting this Wednesday. The cause of this is an expired Apple issued developer certificate which has the purpose of making sure that the downloaded file is legitimate and not some malware. Ideally, the expiration of this certificate should not have an effect on already downloaded and installed apps, nor should it affect already signed apps in the distribution channels. Unfortunately, something is broken in the OS that causes the app to crash because of this expired certificate. Apple told us they are working on a fix.

While we wait for this fix, if you are affected by this problem, you can download the brand new FotoMagico 5.4 now, which we shipped yesterday and which, among other things, addresses this issue by being signed with a new certificate.

I'm sorry for all the inconvenience this has caused.

On behalf of the Boinx Software Crew,

Oliver.
