    Qik LiveStreaming (beta) for Storm users



    Qik LiveStreaming turns your berry into a video broadcasting device. Being on the PCMag's Top 20 free BlackBerry apps you can share your videos live with family, friends, just everyone from everywhere you go. The streamed videos are stored on its own website, so be sure, what your are doing. Qik right now requires either Wi-Fi or 3G. The Qik app is already available from AppWorld for a while, but now there is a Storm version in testing.

    I hope this is a newer version than Alpha 0.1.11 which has been around since summer (and does not work with OS 5.0).

    Crap - it is the 0.1.11 Alpha! Is there a newer link maybe? I've been dying for an update to this app and when you email them they almost never respond. Ugh.

    When I was running v4.7.x it ran relatively good, both uploads and streaming. However under 5.0 most of the time it just freezes up my Storm 9530 - the streaming flat out will not work and the uploading is iffy at best. The real point of frustration is Qik will not give any details as to when they might release another Storm build or one that will work w/OS 5.0. The link from the OP is the last build from like Aug-2009 (v0.1.11) and is an Alpha build.

    If your OS was a flavor of 4.7 it would probably work fine but since you have 5.0 running you are experieincing the same issues as me on my S1.

    Hopefully Qik will release something soon - I'm tired of seeing them post how great their iPhone and Android versions are.

    Sorry to hear of all your problems, hope the person that delivered the message didn't get punished for it :aargh4:

    Since I have no account with them, I stopped testing at the screen showed in the original picture above...

    Thumbs up Update

    Below is the thread between myself and a Qik employee. Hopefully these timeframes hold true (or dare I say come to fruition earlier than expected...)

    Qik for Blackberry Storm
    Is there going to be a Qik application release for the Blackberry Storm 1 & 2 running OS 5.0.0.X? If so, can you give us a loose estimate or idea when a beta might become available? PLEASE advise. Thanks.

    igor, Employee, replied 7 hours ago We are working on the new version of Qik for OS 5. Soon, we will release Qik on Blackberry Bold and Curve. Afterwards, it will be on Storm. Please, stay tuned.

    Kevin Klein replied 25 minutes ago Thank you for getting back to me. Can you please be more specific as to what soon means? Are we talking days, weeks, months, etc.? If you could provide even the loosest estimate when a Storm build will be available it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    igor, Employee, replied 14 minutes ago I mean in a one or two months. Perhaps, the Storm build will be available in three months or early.

    Kevin Klein replied 9 minutes ago That sounds promising. Thanks for the info.
