Used in conjunction with Ivideon, this is really nice. Can setup multiple cams anywhere you can access wifi or via hotspot. It is a little laggy, but that is to be expected considering the network being used and the method of viewing. My only gripe is that between this app and Ivideon, getting the correct orientation (landscape), I can only get a landscape mirror image and not a true L/R landscape image. I might be missing something, will play w/ it some more. Great app & stream quality!

I really like this app. There are great features like recording motion detection and uploading the video to services like Dropbox. There is also a web interface to change the camera settings and view the video. If you port forward the web interface, you can even change some settings, record a video, or take a photo from anywhere with internet connection. I am using a older phone but the quality still looks good even though it gets warm. My only issue is the exposure drops after a few seconds when I start the server. I wish there was a way to change the exposure settings in the app settings. Also, sometimes some of the setting changed from the web interface do not save for more than a day including exposure. I can't really complain though because the amount of customization settings for this app in the free version trumps a few other apps I have looked at and even a paid app. I see some reviews saying that this app does not work or looks terrible but everyone's millage varies and a super cheap phone is probably not going to look good (or even work at all). The app is free though so try it if you made it this far and I just realized I spent way to long on this review.

Well, I can't get it to work. I can see the served web page on a client, but none of the options on that page produces any live video. The options buttons are there (flash, Java, JavaScript, etc.), there is an image of an empty Android home screen in landscape mode (correct date and time, correct battery charge amount), just no video. Both Android 7.0. uninstalling.
