IP Webcam - Android App

I had the idea of attaching my phone to our NXT robot so that we can see what it sees, as it didn't come with a camera. First thought was to write this myself, but since Android is awesome, someone has done it for me. 

Check it out here. My phone isn't the most powerful, but it runs with no problems at all. Even in the background. 

1) Click start on your phone.
2) Jump on your favourite web browser and type in the URI printed at the bottom of your phone screen.
3) ????
4) Profit!!!

Personally I found using VLC media player a far better option than using a web browser. Press Ctrl + N and enter the URL in here. e.g.

And then BAM! Wireless spy camera. Just hope no one steals your phone.



  1. Wow, that's cool. I'm getting an android in a month or two, cant wait to play with stuff like this.

  2. Do you send for me source code?
