My broadcast plays fine on iPhone 5 but not older iPhone's. Why?

This is probaly due to using the MP3 audio format. iOS versions prior to 7 either do not support or have faulty MP3 support for HLS streams (HLS is the protocol used to stream to iOS and Android devices). For example, on an iPhone 4 you may see the broadcast play for 20 seconds before the audio cuts in and out and the broadcast stops. For this reason we receommend using the AAC audio codec whenever possible.

Unfortunately Flash Media Live Encoder for Windows does not include the AAC codec natively. You can either purchase the MainConcept AAC FMLE plugin or use a different live encoder such as Open Broadcaste Software (free), XSplit, or Wirecast all of which support the AAC audio codec.
