Good news. The LF-B10 is now really supported. Before, the video from LF-B10 was unusable which i did not recognize until someone gave me access to his a BaseStation.

As of 02/07/2012 this is fixed and LF-B10 BaseStations are now supported (but not in H264 mode)

This was also tested on the Touchpad and works great other than audio/video sync. Otherwise, excellent.

Thanks

With the latest update this app is clearer and sounds better then the offical pc software made by Sony. It also looks and sounds better on my thrive and inspire then it does on my PSP.
Fantastic work Michael !
Tested the app all day yesterday with a 4g connection and it only dropped a few times and that was due to poor data service areas .This is a screenshot of the picture quality of the app on inspire it is so clear

Another update:

There is now support for both video inputs. Previously it could only show data from Video 1. Now you can select the video input in the preferences.

I added preliminary support for LF-V30 Basestations. The audio works but the video has some problems.

Ok, the problem with the LF-V30 BaseStations seems to be the mpeg4 encoder.

They support h264 which i can already decode, but it's way too slow to decode it in software, so the only option is to force the BaseStation to send out an mpeg4 stream.

But in the case of the mpeg4 stream the video is distorted. I get parts of the next frame on the bottom of the current frame. This seems to be a problem with the mpeg4 encoder.

BIG NEWS:

i have cleared everything with sony and am now allowed to distribute this app. I do have to state that sony did not contribute to the development and i am not licensed to use the trade mark LocationFree or the brand name Sony in the title of the App.

And i have to say. I am perfectly fine with that .

I really have to thank sony, especially the people that were involved in this (i don't know if i am allowed to name them here, so i will not). They were very commited to help me figure out a way to distribute this app.

I will prepare a public beta release over the next few days.

lf-pk1
In the uk I think the pk1 is the standard model... bought the us version b20 but does not work well with PAL. Use the b20 to create codes for the remote function. My question is will the app work on the uk version and if yes.. will it work on the galaxy tab 10? Have the desire as well.

Well, i think there is only one way to find out. As you might have seen (or not). I have updated the first post with links to the android market. The app is now available for everyon to test.

If your devices work, please post it here so i can update the post.

Greetings
