Two different questions here, only related by the fact both involve audio:
1) What's the state of being able to do streaming audio on Android?
I've been doing some searching, and it appears there are one or two apps in the Market that do Shoutcast/MP3/etc. streaming. Can the Droid do WMA/ASX streaming at all, even with an app? That answer didn't seem to be as forthcoming. There's an app in the Market called "Media Player", but I can't tell if it'll do Windows Media-based streaming.
I'm not expecting much, but I'm curious.
How about Ogg Vorbis streaming? I could do CBC Radio with that one...they went to WMA streaming a while back, but still have a national/Toronto-based Ogg Vorbis stream somewhere in there.
2) How about Audio Recording applications?
I work in radio news, and I'd like to be able to use the Droid as sort of an equivalent of a flash audio recorder. But since it's for broadcast, I'd like a higher-quality audio file...i.e. at least 22KHz WAV (or whatever the equivalent file type would be) or 192kbps MP3. I'd like to also be able to record from the 3.5 mm jack somehow, but I don't know how that'd work.
Like with the streaming, I saw a couple of apps for it, but don't know if they would work (no information on file formats recording, etc.).
Any help on this would be much appreciated!
