Hey guys late last year I know that +Jason Howell gave a tip how to watch Twit Live shows using VLC, Well today Tune in Radio posted an update that makes it easy to listen to your twit shows live while you are on the move.
Now there was already a way to listen to the stereo version of Twit Live by just searching for it in Tune in Radio, however it has an over 1 minute delay from the live feed and who wants to live in the past. Now you can add custom feeds and save them. So here is how to do it.
Go to the recent tab in the app and select Custom Url and type in *http://twit.am/listen.m3u* when it starts playing touch the heat icon at the top, name your feed and there you go you will have the no delay mono live feed and it will be saved in your favourites.
