I'm loving the potential, but still needs some work. Yeah it's $20 but you can use it across multiple devices if they are logged into the same account and honestly you're not gonna find a functional camera for cheaper. It works well on my pixel 4a at 720 and 1080 but not 4k. I tried it on my old moto x4 and the preview window is rotated 90 degrees but it transmits fine. Again, no 4k. Delay is under 1/4 second especially if low latency mode is enabled. They just need to fix the bugs.

Ooof, you guys are killing me with this. As a concept, NDI is great. Love being able to beam video around my studio without wires. 10/10 prototype. But if I'm going to shell out $20, I want better than an app that locks itself to only one orientation of landscape; better than an app that only records/transmits in 30fps (seriously, is it the 2000s again??); better controls to change settings with a half-dozen values than a "click this button 4 times and wait for the lag to clear each time".

The NDI part works perfectly, but the camera controls are very basic - just changing lens, exposure and turning flash on. Unfortunately there is no option to sync 50hz fluorescent light wiping/flicker, as there are on all my other third party camera apps. If your camera doesn't do this sync automatically, you're out of luck. As I planned to use this exclusively in my office with fluo lights I've just spent $9.99 on an app I will never use again. I can recommend it for different lighting though.
