ASICAP Android: Feature request

Post by laheller » Mon Apr 29, 2019 7:53 am

Hi!

The following feature for ASICAP on Android would be really cool:
Broadcast live image of camera to Facebook/Youtube.

Similar function can be done on Windows by using ASI camera + Directshow driver + OBS software (https://obsproject.com/).

As far as I know on Android a similar feature could be done by using ffmpeg.
FFMPEG is a cross-platform multimedia library which can be built on Windows/Linux/Mac/Andoroid/Raspberry.

Guides, how to build for Android platform:
https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/CompilationGuide/Android

But there are also prebuilt binaries:
https://github.com/hiteshsondhi88/ffmpe ... ses/latest

And an Android Java library for ffmpeg:
https://github.com/WritingMinds/ffmpeg-android-java

On Windows it is also possible to broadcast using ffmpeg via command line, like this:

Code: Select all

ffmpeg.exe -hide_banner -f lavfi -i anullsrc=r=16000:cl=mono -rtbufsize 100M -thread_queue_size 16 -f dshow -i video="ASI120MCS-S Camera (ZWO Design)" -s 1280x720 -r 30 -vcodec libx264 -preset ultrafast -b:v 1500k -metadata title=Ladislav -acodec aac -ar 48000 -f flv "rtmp://a.rtmp.youtube.com/live2/your-keyz-goes-here"
The above example broadcasts live image from ASI camera + null audio as an FLV stream to Youtube RTMP push server.

Stream key for Youtube can be obtained here:

Stream key for Facebook can be obtained here:

BR,

Ladislav

Hi Ladislav, That's a great idea. We'll consider adding live broadcasting to our app, possibly on ASICAP or ASIAIR, and we'll also look forward to it. It's very kind of you.Thank you.

Hi!

Any update on this feature?
I would be also great to implement it (maybe first) for AsiCap for Raspberry.
This way the ASI camera could by used as an All Sky camera with live streaming:

Not yet.
ASICap for Raspberry may come true in future.
