Worked w xsplit , but 20$= NO OPTIONS, NO UPDATES, and uses 30mbit for SD?! 56mbit for 720p??


This app actually works, and I got a high-quality video stream to Xsplit, from my iPhone 7 plus w iOS 10, to xsplit on win7.

The only thing keeping this from a five star rating, is that (for a 20$ app!!) there are absolutely ZERO options to set/change in the app.... For example you should be able to lower the frame rate, or the quality/res, or something to reduce the bandwidth utilization... with these type of options this could actually be a functional useful tool/app.

BUT WHAT THE?? 32 mbit of actual throughput being used for a SD video stream w audio disabled!?!? ... if I tap the HD option, the bandwidth utilization across my Wi-Fi AP was a constant 50 to 57 Mbit ... of course you are going to have drop soon as they start moving away from their asses enterprise he's receiving a consistent 60 actually throughput TCP stream while the user moves around (we were testing this in a open air convention center venue too btw).

Really a waste of great potential here...

Not worth 20 dollars


Honestly, the quality didn’t seem all that great. It wasn’t horrible per se but it wasn’t at a level that would allow me to say I would use this as a video source.

Sitting in one place, with the phone sitting on the desk, there were obvious dropped frames between my phone and the receiving end. The AP I was using was less than 5 feet away and is an Enterprise grade wireless network designed and optimized for streaming audio/video.

All that said, the app does do what it says in that you can use your iPhone’s camera in different production scenarios.

Works great


I should preface that I've only run the app to the NDI Video Monitor App in Windows 7 64-bit. But it worked for me. I don't expect any problems except WiFi strength and signal enough to not have dropouts in 720p mode. The framerate is one of the most impressive things. Video feedback is fun and is very clean high quality video signal in 720p mode.
