how to watch webcam from another app?

Post by Comrad » Sun Apr 07, 2013 10:09 pm

Hello!
I have Yawcam up and running.
I can connect to it in browser from everywhere via Internet.
Now I want to add this camera to Android app on my mobile phone.
But can't do that :(
I use this app:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... mlld2VyIl0.
Tell me please what settings should I use in Yawcam and what url and type of stream should I use in that or similar programs to access my camera's video stream with password from my mobile phone or from other watching programs?
Thanks in advance.

Yawcam should work with both IP Cam Viewer (https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... iewerBasic) and tinyCam (https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... lexvas.dvr).
The best setting in Yawcam with these kind of viewers, is to use MJPEG streaming. Click:
"Settings -> Edit Settings... -> Stream -> Stream type"
and set it to "MJPEG".

Use the URL http://public-ip:port/video.mjpg

That works great!
Even with username and password.
Thanks!

Which Android version do you need to run this app?
Because I am not able to install this app on my device.
