Topic: Samsung Galaxy Note 3 as IP Camera

After going thru the Forums it would seam as though this is being done.  I have installed IP Webcam on my 'droid but I can't get this to work. Is Bluetooth a requirement for the PC where I am running Kinovea?

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 3 as IP Camera

No, Bluetooth is not involved. Wi-Fi should be turned on on both though.

Use the "Manual connection" button under the camera list and configure from there. The URL information should be found in the mobile app settings or documentation.

A web browser should also be able to connect to the stream, so you might want to test there to pinpoint the origin of the problem.

Thanks, Joan. I did manage to get the view from Google Chrome but I am getting "an error occurred during connection test: ".

Any thoughts? (I am using IP Webcam app).

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 3 as IP Camera

In Kinovea you should use the direct URL to the MJPEG stream, something like http://192.168.0.45:8080/video for IP Webcam app.

There seems to be an issue with the display though, I also can't get a stable stream. Something must be broken…

I have sent you an email with a link to a video of this along with the Log file created in the hope that it might be of assistance.

Hey Joan, just got around to testing. SUCCESS!!!  :-)

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 3 as IP Camera

Super. Thanks for the follow-up.
For the record we continued the discussion off-line and I sent coachmattb a preversion of 0.8.25 with a bug-fix for testing purposes.

For others with this issue (any network camera should have the issue really), a workaround in 0.8.24 should be possible, by going to the global capture preferences in Options > Preferences > Capture, and in "Display synchronization strategy", select "Camera frame signal" instead of "Forced framerate".
