RVmedia application to stream video and connect from Android

Post by grafix » Mon Mar 14, 2016 9:03 pm

Hello, is RVmedia capable of streaming video captured by a USB camera or an IP camera and stream it (after selecting the camera) so that another Android application could connect on it and see the video of the active camera ? Is RTSP streaming really supported ?

If this is possible, does it support any authorisation so that not everyone could connect to that streaming system but only the users with specific credentials ?

Thank you

Sorry, no.
RVMedia can stream video only in their own format, so a special client is required to decode it.
RTSP is supported only from RECEIVING video streams (and only with help of GStreamer or FFmpeg), not for sending them.

Well, we plan to implement streaming in standard formats, but this task has a low priority. We are currently working on a FireMonkey version of RVMedia, so, I believe, an Android version will be implemented sooner. However, I cannot tell when it will be ready.

Thank you,
can you suggest any other method that RVmedia supports for sending video stream, so that an Android app could read it ? Not using firemonkey for Android development.

Sorry, no. Broadcasting in standard formats (MJPEG and H.264) is planned for future, but not very near future.
