Cool concept. Reminds me of when Vine started and aggregators were popping up everywhere. Can't imagine Meerkat will let this last long though. Looks like they're scraping to get the raw video stream URLs and then playing those with JWPlayer. (Makers, please correct me if I'm directionally incorrect here.)

Thanks @thetylerhayes. We found Meerkat's private api and the video URLs each have a similar M3U8 format. Meerkat will probably shut us down eventually. but it requires api infrastructure changes so we should be online for a few weeks. :)

Cool, especially for those who don't have an iOS device to get the app! Thanks for sharing!

Remember what twitter used to be like before Meerkat?

@eriktorenberg not as cool. Meerkat reminded me of the power of Twitter conversations.
