    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!

    As for your first question, I will leave that up to people that know more about it then I. As for your second question, I did some research and found that most of the voice recorder apps out there completely blow.

    The App listed before is not free but it does seem to do what you want and have great feedback.

    Who do you have to threaten to get detailed tech specs of any Android app???? :D

    I can't tell, from searching, what formats Livo Recorder Pro records into. So, I don't have any idea if it'll work for what I need. It appears to be $2.99, which is a more than reasonable price...IF it works for me.

    Thank you, again, New!

    That is the most secretive program EVER! Ok not really but I cannot find any more information out about it then that. You could email the company that made it, and they should be able to tell you what formats it supports.

    It is not just that program. A number of other programs I've seen on AndroLib...getting the detailed specs just isn't possible.

    I'll probably E-mail them at some point and ask, but you'd think it'd be on the web SOMEWHERE!

    Well, I'd E-mail them if I could find their address. :D

    Yeah, I saw that, but are you sure it's the developer? The site has no mention of Android apps or any other smartphone apps, and this one appears to be a consulting company:

    Sandbox

    Ah, well, I'll figure it out!

    Bumping now that I have the Droid.

    Apparently, Ogg Vorbis is actually a native format to Android, but I can't for the life of me how to get STREAMING Ogg Vorbis audio, like that from my beloved CBC. None of the audio/streaming apps I've downloaded can handle it. Is there an app that does STREAMING Ogg Vorbis? Not saved files, live streaming like the dozens of MP3 streaming-capable apps out there.

    Also still looking for ASX (Windows Media), though that'll be tougher, I'm sure.

    If you're looking for an Android app to record streaming MP3 audio, try Radio Rip. Just updated today to add scheduled/timed recordings. Also check out Broov Adore (it's not in the market but you can find a link for a beta on the Broov website.) Broov Adore does both AAC and MP3. But no scheduled timed recording yet.

    Sorry, I don't know any app that streams OGG yet. Maybe when Coreplayer Android comes out next month.

    I've been looking for one of these for a while and have recently tried Recordio - whilst the UI is basic, its functionality is great as it allows you to schedule future recordings, which was exactly was what I was looking for.

    Thought I'd post in case anyone is googling for something similar.

    new app

    Sorry to wake up an old thread, but I'm putting this here incase someone googles this (like I did).

    I'm developing an app for Android which has the main purpose of recording internet radio automatically at scheduled times, then play them back.

    Update to a very old thread (so old, I have a Droid 4 now!)...

    I use TuneIn (Pro) to stream (and record) almost any radio station in the world. You have to use iHeartRadio to pick up the Clear Channel stations.

    I use Hi-Q to act as a flash recorder. It is good enough quality for broadcast use.

    I've tried a bunch of the recording apps and really Rehearsal Assistant is about the best Quality it was made for recording music ,
    format can be changed
    problem is it cannot pause and continue recording just starts a new one, but the quality is really great
    just my thoughts

    streaming = unknown to me

    I tried Rehearsal Assistant on my original Droid. No way. The recording hiccuped all the time and was unusable. It probably wouldn't do that on my much faster D4.

    Hi-Q does everything I need. I bought the pro version but even the lite version has adjustable parameters and unlimited recording in MP3 or OGG formats (it limits WAV recording to 10 minutes per file, a limit that goes away in the pro version). The lite version is free.

    Oh, and it JUST added pause capability.
