http://forum.xda-developers.com – Hi, I am working on developing an app in which one of its features includes receiving a video stream from a webcam and displaying it through a videoView. I've been able to stream video before using VLC, but can't seem to get it working with my Android App. In VLC, after choosing my webcam as the video source to stream, I choose http stream, and for transcoding I choose MP4 for encapsulation and H-264 as the video codec. (I believe these are the formats supported by Android) the generated stream output string is as follows: :sout=#transcode{vcodec=h264,vb=800,scale=1,acodec =none}:htt (HowTos)
