HTML5 Logo 64It’s good to read that Mixcloud’s audio player now has “experimental” support for HTML5. This means that devices which do not support Flash, such as iPods and iPhones, can be used to listen to the shows using the standard Web browser.

Mixcloud says that the HTML5 player is not yet as stable as their Flash-based player, so if you do get any problems, remember that apps for iOS and for Android are still available.

CloudcastMixcloud has announced an app to play Mixcloud cloudcasts such as Phantom Circuit on devices which run the Android operating system. You can download it here.

Of course, you can continue to listen using any Web browser equipped with the Flash plug-in, and on iOS devices (iPhone / iPod / iPad) using the iOS app.

Mixcloud appWhen you listen to Phantom Circuit, audio is streamed to your computer (or compatible mobile phone etc.) using the Mixcloud service. Mixcloud now also works with the previously incompatible iOS devices made by Apple (iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad) using a free app which the company released today.

Just download and install the Mixcloud app as you would for any other iOS app. Then you will have to enter your Mixcloud user name and password. If you aren’t a member of Mixcloud, you can quickly join for free on Mixcloud’s site. Only a name and password has to be supplied, no personal data.

To find Phantom Circuit’s cloudcasts, type “phantom circuit” into the Search box and click the “Cloudcasts” tab.

Tip: if you add any edition of Phantom Circuit to your “Favourites” you can then quickly call up that show and click at the top of the track list: that will take you to Phantom Circuit’s profile page, which has a list of available shows.

If for some reason you don’t want to join Mixcloud, there is still the method for home listening that we came up with previously, but it’s very limited in scope. If you want to listen to Phantom Circuit and other cloudcasts when you are on the move, you need this new app. Whilst it has some rough edges (it lacks simple bookmarking of favourite cloudcasters and it doesn’t yet highlight the currently playing track), it’s a very worthwhile first release.

There is surely no chance of the show competing with the big players, but no vote is wasted, since, as Mixcloud puts it: “you can vote for as many as you like, so vote early, vote often – VOTE NOW!”.

Phantom Circuit has had a busy and successful year and it seems appropriate to mention some of the highlights, especially for anyone who missed them the first time around. All the shows can be heard via the Mixcloud streaming service – and it’s worth stating that, without their licensed (that’s in terms of music licences rather than beer) service, the show would not have returned. As it is, Phantom Circuit rushes into 2011 looking forward to bringing you more features and exclusives.

All of the following shows can still be heard: just follow the links and enjoy…

Since its return in April, Phantom Circuit has featured live music, interviews or other specials from Sarah Blasko, The Octopus Collective, Daidono, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Yantantethra, Shengi, Claire Marshall’s Cheyenne, Doors to Nowhere, Thee Moths (#45, #47), Silver Apples, Charlemagne Palestine, SouthBank Gamelan Players, (Péron and Diermaier’s) Faust, Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle, Carter Tutti), John Richards / Dirty Electronics Ensemble, Miss Hypnotique, Mr. Underwood (#36, #49), Joanna Quail, Matt Howden (Sieben), Jim Jupp (Belbury Poly), Julian House (The Focus Group), Moon Wiring Club and Clutter.

Don’t forget to make use of our email list and RSS feed feed so we can let you know when new shows are available.

Happy new year and thanks very much for listening.
