X70 to android VLC How to

This is how I got VLC to work on my android phone.

Go to settings

More

Tethering &portable hotspots

Portable wifi hotspots: select

I used an app called "Wifi access point to find my ip: 192.168.43.1 yours may be different.

PXW-X70

Settings

Wifi set

Access point

Select your camera stream

Then go to streaming

I used preset 2

Size (I'm trying) 640 360

Destination (mine) 192.168.43.1 (guessing yours will be different.)

Port 1234

Execute

Wifi

Back to android. Have you downloaded VLC yet?

VLC

Open ML

Enter udp://:1234

Back to camera

Press thumbnail hopefully you'll see the video in VLC

I STILL NEED HELP WITH "Screen Streem" app that I put on my phone.

Maybe someone else can figure this out. I've nearly got it but I'm on limited 4G.


Discovered how it wouldn't show up in YouTube this time.
Received an email for copyright infringement. That'll teach me to point at TV while I practice.

Re: X70 to android VLC How to

Hi Donald,
thanks for your post. I experience a terrible delay on my phone, about 1.5-2 seconds. That makes it pretty much useless. Do you have the same problem? Also, after about 1-2 minutes VLC crashes. Could be my old phone running on Android 4.1.1. Any ideas on that?

Best, Toby

1-2 second delay on MPEG-TS UDP streaming is quite normal. I stream to a Teradek receiver over 4G to my station every night,and that is about what we get through the internet.

My phone's Sony Xperia Z3 running android 5.1.1 works long enough for me. Still need to sort out this livestream to youtube. I wish I could do it over the wifi instead of 4G as I only have 500mb and don't want to wast them. And yes around 1 to 2 seconds lag.

Re: X70 to android VLC How to

Do you think, the delay would decrease if streaming through a wifi connection? I saw a gadget on ebay the other day, which connects analog to the camera and streams live footage via an own established wifi channel. There's an app for the mobile, which displays the stream (I think, it's intended use is for reverse cameras in cars). That would add a piece of gear plus power source on the camera side, but you could have a quick, cable-free and small/lightweight solution for a second field monitor.
