Bambuser server update

Tonight the back-end system got a upgrade as well.

This can bring some trouble during the night to get your streams running properly, but bare with us cause this is some of the features it will result in.

- The server is now running on port 80, which should make it available for all of you with tragic firewalls. This is especially a request from Jonas who has been missing out on all the live material at his office at Dell. So big corp. users congrats.

- All the old material that was recorded through our java-player has now been updated and are now possible to be enjoyed in the same matter as all other flash videos :)

- There is a lot more engineering stuff under neath, but that is not for us deadly to bother about :)

So a standing ovation for Tom, and thank the weather gods for bringing some rain over the Swedish mountains, and lets hope it will be in the form of snow tomorrow so he gets some of his skiing done, and some great live material from the pist.

Bambuser App Update

The Bambuser Application got today some magic updates(great with christmas holidays when you have time to do things you want :).

The new feature enables auto-connection which means that you with one touch can start streaming, this means that we have more than halfed the time it takes for you to start a stream, which now is around 6 seconds from my N82 phone.

Download the new update at

(And yes, what you see up there at the top on the photo "send position" is something that is coming to you all soon enough :)

Yesterday Tom enabled two notification opportunities for the Bambuser platform. This gives you the opportunity to get your message out to your friends when you go live. If you already have a Jaiku or Twitter account you just have to fill them out in your profile, under notification options. The Bambuser platform will from there on post a notification that says "Live on Bambuser:" and followed by your tag as well as with the link to your stream. 

Please try it out.


To summarize this week we can say that the gravitational forces around Bambuser is still there. This week we been penetrated by two of the most extreme polarized uses of the service, one we had forecasted, another that we did not predict at all. 

Also Tom had a visit to BambuserHus in Malmö where we met a delegation from Sony Ericsson and their product planning department. Friday was spent in Copenhagen on duty for a semi-secret mission, lets just say that it involved countries like Burma, Zimbabwe and Syria. 
Saturday was spent in two beam bags focusing on all different topics concerning a web-strategy. Conclusion there so many possibilities and so few people on this project so far, so I´ll just end this post with a question...

Anyone out there want to help?
