ffserver to stream a video from webcam to Android

Postby xav12358 » Tue Apr 04, 2017 7:19 am

Hello,


I just want to grab a ffserver stream with my smartphone. On compute it works properly. I setup my ffserver and I get with vlc the stream with an other computer. With my smartphone I set the adress but vlc tell me he can get the video from the stream.

Is there a specific way to grab video from ffserver on Android?

Here is the command I use to execute the stream on my computer:
Code: Select all
ffserver -f /etc/ffserver.conf
ffmpeg -v verbose -f video4linux2  -r 25 -s 1280x720 -i /dev/video2 http://127.0.0.1:8090/feed1.ffm


I can grab the stream on an other computer on VLC but on Android it is impossible. Why?

what android version does your phone run? can you see this stream on your android phone?

if yes then your own ffmpeg command is wrong. Can you see youtube live streams on your phone?
