BigVEncoder was the first app for the Android that could stream live video in real time from your Android camera to a server on the internet. It began back in 2011 for Android 2.2. It was the only thing available then and is still the best encoder available for the Android today.

You can mix and match video and audio sources. Pull the video from one source and the audio from another. Pull the video from a file and add narration from your microphone. Or shoot fresh video with your camera and add music from an audio file.

BigVEncoder can be used as a first class video recorder, just send its output to a file on your device.

Streaming protocols supported include RTMP, MPEGTS, RTP, and others. Many video and audio formats are supported including H264, H265, MPEG4, VP8, VP9, Theora, AAC, MP2, MP3, and others.

Use BigVEncoder to convert existing files to other formats. Take your 3gp or mp4 files created by the Android's camera app and convert them to Flash video or any one of several other formats.

Use BigVEncoder to create ringtones. You can create MP3 files for your MP3 player. Just pull the audio from whatever source you would like and save the output to a file on your device. You can set a timer so that the encoding stops after a certain amount of time.

Do live interviews from your Android. No more equipment to lug around for your live internet video and audio broadcasts.

BigVEncoder has been highly optimized to work efficiently with your Android camera and microphone. You can stream live quality video and audio in realtime.

To get started, hit the help button in the upper right after BigVEncoder first loads up. You'll find some information to help get familiar with the user interface and various aspects of its use. Also, from any screen, just hit the help button to find help for that screen. Documentation is always right at your fingertip.

To stream live video or audio, you will need access to a media server on the internet or within a local network running any one of several popular media server applications. BigVEncoder can also stream live to services such as,,, and others.
