Caution! Android 5.1.1 for Samsung GALAXY series currently have issue on accessing USB device. And if you update your GALAXY to Android 5.1.1, this app may not work.
Caution! Some devices like which CPU/SOC is made by MediaTek, Rockchip and Allwinner will have some issues on USB host function and these devices may freeze, restart. Additionally some devices have limitation of USB current and/or are very sensitive to USB current variation. The power consumption of web cam is more tha several hundreds mA and we recommend to use self-powered USB hub for stable use of this app.
Live streaming audio and video images from USB connected external camera to video delivery server/service via RTMP is possible. We confirmed this app can stream to Worwza streaming Engine and RED5 streaming server software.
Loading server config from xml file is now available!! You can share server config xml file from filer app or loading from “Load connection settings from XML file” setting on settings screen.
This app can load from xml file compatible to FLASH Media Live Encoder profile xml. But if app fail to load your xml file, please contact us.
No root access and no custom ROM need even on Android4.4/5.0 devices. Only you need is just install(and of course you need UVC web cam and OTG cable)
We recommend to use self-powered USB 2.0 hub(and OTG cable) to connnect UVC camera to your device. OTG Y cable(with power supply) will work well but USB host function on some devices are unstable when using OTG Y cable. So if you want to use OTG Y cable, we recommend to combine USB2.0 hub(both self-powered and bus-powered one is acceptable) with OTG Y cable.
