Android Video Streaming App Review: Camera WiFi LiveStream
By Steve McFarlane
Camera WiFi LiveStream allows you to use your Android to stream video and audio to a network via Wi-Fi. The app can also be used to view and remotely control your Android from a web browser or another Android device
What it Can be Used for
LiveStream can be used to spy on people, can be used as a effective surveillance device or can be used just to have fun. You may use it as a baby monitor, but the developers have a another app that was specifically designed for monitoring babies that goes by the name “BabyCam Monitor” – the app does everything this Android video streaming app does but has more features that are specifically designed to monitor babies.
You can remotely monitor or manage your Android’s camera and even change streaming options, so you can choose whether or not to take photos or videos. However, it only works on WiFi networks for now (no 3G) and you must have Java installed on the web browser if you want to manage the app from a computer.
