Twitcasting Live Status

Twitcasting is the easy & light-weight live cast service using iPhone or Android. The ideal service for casual vloggers.

Personally, I think that Ustream is for more serious live caster; and Twitcasting is for casual day-to-day live casters.

I made the simple add-on to display online/offline status of your Twitcasting channel and link it to your Twitcasting account. Download and test drive it.

* This addon comes with Japanese language file.
* このアドオンは日本語対応です。日本語の説明はこちら

* The logo of Twitcasting was provided by Sidefeed, Inc. with the written permission. You can re-distribute this add-on BUT you MUST contact Sidefeed, Inc. if you want to use their logo.
* ツイキャスロゴは運営会社のサイドフィード様から使用許可をいただいています。再配布の際は、各自サイドフィード様に確認ください。 

ATTENTION - High traffic webmasters

Twitcasting only allows one (1) IP address to retrieve online/offline status max. 60 requests per min. When you use this add-on, I highly recommend to ENABLE FULL PAGE CACHE!!!
