What's New in Version 1.1.3
- Added improved error reporting.
Does not require any additional software on the browser. Flexible enough for any stream capture client. Exactly what I was looking for.
Only one issue.
I sat down for hours trying to figure out the best way to set up my iPhone and iPad as wireless cameras for a twitch stream. I had heard of a couple of $5 apps, and was willing to pay to make this work. I found that every app I had come across was difficult. You had to install software on the computer, and it was really unreliable.. crashing, showing blank video, or locking up completely. Getting the stream set up each time would require loading up multiple programs, and resetting my scene. (Each of these apps only allowed one device)
I almost didn't jump in on this app because it was paid only. They should offer a free stamped/low quality version to try out.. but that's not the issue I had with it. This app is browser based, and because each device is given a link based off its IP, you can have multiple websites. You have a decent amount of settings you can play with for video feed quality, and once you set up your scene for the first time, all you have to do is launch the app on the devices and they automatically pulled up on the stream. Fantastic.
My issue: There is no way to lock or set orientation to landscape. If you tilt the phone sideways it will go to landscape, but if you try to set the phone flat, or even remotely close to flat, it will pop back to portrait. And there's nothing on the phone itself that shows whether it's portrait or landscape. I had to open the website and watch. I'm trying to do an overhead shot of a table, and this may not work for it if I can't figure this out or dev doesn't fix this issue. Maybe I can portrait lock it and see if I can manually turn the video feed in twitch 90 degrees.. that's another day I suppose.
Thanks for a great app.
