I am currently developing a security business app for my client, I have been using Corona SDK for awhile now, however I am presented with a new challenge, streaming video from an IP enabled camera.
I have been reading every topic on this subject and have not found a concrete answer, which is why I have started a new topic.
So my question is, is there a way to stream video onto the app using a common protocol such as rtsp, without opening the media player on the device?
For example, let's say on a Hikvision (one of the most common camera brands) Ip Camera that supports rtsp, would there be a way to have the user open the app, and see what the camera is seeing, and then perform an action within the app?
To be even more specific, can the user see what the camera is seeing, and then click a button right below the "camera stream" to execute an action, all from the same app?
Any and all help is greatly appreciated, I've always loved the community on this platform and I hope to find some useful information.
Thank you everyone....
Update: Hello, I have recently been playing with Webview, and found that this is the most appropriate way of attempting to "livestream" from an ip enabled camera. The way to do it, is embed the livestream in an html page, and have the webview request that page.
Many thanks to Rob and roaminggamer!
