Please add functionality to work with telephoto lens! Great app. Works perfectly with other home security apps. The phone camera is better than most security cameras - better white balance and low light performance. Would be fabulous if it worked with secondary (telephoto) lens on the phone

Took me some careful reading and setup, but this app is just what I was looking for. I got it to loop record onto my phone's local SD card, but I'm also able to watch the phone's view on my computer's browser. App creator also responded helpfully to a question I had. Thanks so much!

The latest update that snuk in the ad's completely broke the cam. The webcam driver now locks up my discord, and the url in obs just stays black. I'm not going to diagnose when it was fine before I updated it, dead the next. I can't stand aps that monetize and destroy functionality.

Worked really well before and was easy to use. I have not been able to use it for the past 2 months as I keep getting the error 'Cannot open camera, IP webcam needs explicit permission" even though I've already given it all permissions.

If you're comfy working with IP addresses, this is *amazing*. With everybody switching to Zoom for Covid-19 remoting, this is a perfect tool in the toolbox. It's not perfect - the default resolution results in high latency and I can't get it to work on Skype for Business, the web-portal it creates doesn't seem to have a place to save settings to the phone, some odd things there... but when it works it works. I am a bit concerned it has an option to run in the background without the notification icon. That seems like it could be used for nefarious ends.

Versatile, exactly doing what it advertises and MUCH more. The developer definitely knows what he's doing, has a lot of small but very useful features on top of some of its core features. Definitely far away from modern app where they tried to be as minimalistic as possible. This one managed to be very complete, without being cluttered. You can take the 3.9 rating as majority of the people being clueless, and you'd realize it's closer to 4.5. I feel like this is one of rare times I got surprised by an Android app. One that's so close to having a complete terminal-based control, but organized.

Great app, what a treat to have a free app that really does what it says. Did not have high expectations but I had everything up and running within minutes! As an android developer who has had the misfortune of working on a couple camera apps... very nice job. one minor question - if I turn on the audio response to motion detection, the audio seems to keep playing long after the motion detection timeout has passed. is this intentional behavior? I'd like to be able to just play the audio while movement is being actively detected.

Works like charm. If you have problems, try not to install any plugin for a moment or find out what they really do. Make sure you give the app permission to overlay. While streaming, connect to the same wifi with your laptop. Personally, I have an issue where the screen goes black after the stream starts. Just tap the screen, everything goes back normally. Tested on Samsung Galaxy S8

I really like this app. There are great features like recording motion detection and uploading the video to services like Dropbox. There is also a web interface to change the camera settings and view the video. If you port forward the web interface, you can even change some settings, record a video, or take a photo from anywhere with internet connection. I am using a older phone but the quality still looks good even though it gets warm. My only issue is the exposure drops after a few seconds when I start the server. I wish there was a way to change the exposure settings in the app settings. Also, sometimes some of the setting changed from the web interface do not save for more than a day including exposure. I can't really complain though because the amount of customization settings for this app in the free version trumps a few other apps I have looked at and even a paid app. I see some reviews saying that this app does not work or looks terrible but everyone's millage varies and a super cheap phone is probably not going to look good (or even work at all). The app is free though so try it if you made it this far and I just realized I spent way to long on this review.

Intuitive interface where everything you need is laid out clearly. I noticed however that there is a consistent choppiness that happens every few seconds while streaming video, and was wondering if anyone else had this problem? It's just a slight chop in the video and not much of a big deal, but can be jarring over time. I saw this choppiness problem with a Youtuber who did a tutorial on using this app with OBS, and was wondering if there's any way to fix the stability of the video.

It is one of the simplest apps for this purpose (and also one of the oldest I think). The only problem is that the feed 'randomly' stops showing the videostream. I have it plugged in power, stays at 100% always, disable all possible power saving features. The problem is not the app being killed, but the video just stops, blank canvas. I have the app in 'front'/open always. Any ideas?

Excellent app. It does all that you need, providing a fully functional web interview to control most of what you need. The only feature I'm missing is an Slider to control the focus point. I can set focus to manual but I can't seem to choose a focus point directly from the web interface, would be nice to have an slide as for the zoom, for example. In any case, can't help but recommend to install this app in favour of other, more expensive, solutions. My main use is to monitor my 3d printer, for this, it's absolutely perfect, specially when connected to OctoPI

Well, I can't get it to work. I can see the served web page on a client, but none of the options on that page produces any live video. The options buttons are there (flash, Java, JavaScript, etc.), there is an image of an empty Android home screen in landscape mode (correct date and time, correct battery charge amount), just no video. Both Android 7.0. uninstalling.

Does what it needs to. Sometimes it shows ads in the wrong places. Example: I "fade" the screen, open another app, and come back. I have to leave "fade" and open it again. The ads can be slow to load too, which is hard. The RTSP urls aren't well documented either. And "fade" mode doesn't hide navigation bar. But other than that, it's pretty good for free!

I've been using this app on 2 different HTC One X's to stream video over the internet and locally as well. Everything works really well when once set up correctly. Occasionally the stream will freeze on only one phone but refreshing the page usually fixes it. I think the cause of this issue is likely another app running in the background or possibly my router. Would definitely recommend this app if you can handle a bit of network config

I really like this app. It helps me to use my phone as a second camera for livestreaming. It would be nice, though, if there was an option to select a specific lens (for smartphones with multiple rear cameras). My Mi8, for example, has 1 tele and 1 wide-angle camera and I'd love to be able to switch between those from within the web-interface. But everything else is working great and it is by far the most versatile ip camera app.

Tan. R. Jun 27, 2020     

Quick, simple, easy. Does what it says on the tin. Can easily just hit start and go, or spend a few minutes going over the settings to really customize the feed. My only gripe is the seeming lack of feed types and accessibility of those feeds, as my smart TV is picky about what feed its asked to open. Then again this app has such a wide breadth of options i could just be missing it. Either way, its worth the look if you're in the market for a quick ip camera solution.

Wil. C. Feb 29, 2020     

Really good app - love it - I bought PRO. Only trouble I'm having is that I had to mount my phone 'upside down' and the photos come out upside down and I cannot find a setting (if there is one) to rotate them 180 degrees. I can do it with the video but not the photos. When in server mode the overlay words on the screen (.e.g "How do I connect") are upside down as well. I have got Auto Rotate on, and when the app is not serving, the text is the correct way up for all the config settings. What am I missing?

This is one of the best Android apps I have ever used. There are some glitches such as using for long time will crash or connecting from two phones using VLC will crash the server as well. But I still give 5 stars given the effort and quality delivered. Thank you again. I just can't find the info on how to stream video with audio in VLC though. Hope there are more documentations.

Works good but the website ui is like something designed by a three year old. Why are the buttons so far away from the monitor? Scenario; you have to somehow scroll through a page filled with several sliders while trying not to mess up your settings by touching any of them; only to find that your issue is being caused by a setting back through the slider minefields towards the top of the page; meanwhile, you're unable to note changes to the monitor because it's always off the screen. What a mess

Gru. C. Jul 7, 2021     

Forgot just how powerful this is, definitely deserves a better rating. I do have a few gripes, though. Night vision is buggy, would like to see real-time percentage change on sliders for more precise control, and lack of encryption on the website is a little unsettling. Real-time notifications for motion controlled events would be great too. Make those changes I'll give it a 5.

Dor. L. Sep 15, 2018     

The app works great. But I had one issue that made me uninstall it completely, it overheats my phone to an epic proportion, drains my battery when it's off and just generally hinders my phone, when it is turned off, so I can't even have it on my phone. I won't mind uninstalling and reinstalling every once in a while when I need it, but it needs to get fixed.

Probably the only software that allow full resolution picture capture with preliminary live preview. Important for adjusting proper illumination setup. Using it to digitize very old photos (more than 120 y.o.) to avoid bad reflection. It is good that it has multiple menu options - at least I can control settings and not guess if developer did it the way I wanted, which is usually not the case. I would regard it as the best app I have seen so far.

Don. M. May 13, 2020     

Emailed the creator and got help for my issue (Configure.exe was in a different folder than expected). This works great! There is 1 second of lag between what's shown on the browser's video feed and what the application using the driver picks up (Discord, in this case). But beyond that, no complaints.

Иль. Г. Dec 17, 2019     

It not only does its job perfectly, but also does much, much more! (background-recording camera, how'd that?) Unfortunately, the UI is an unbelievable mess. I'm not talking about the bad engrish, I'm talking about the labyrinth of menus and dialog boxes. The developer skipped the easy part Is this how it's done on Android?

Gre. D. Jan 18, 2019     

I couldn't get IP Webcam to work. Upon registering with Ivideon, I was then made aware of a subscription fee to use the external streaming service. I thought being a free app the streaming would also be free but as it turns out, to the best of my knowledge, you have to pay an external streaming service if you want to stream your camera feed over the net. I also found the app very unappealing graphically and not very user friendly. Lots of buttons to press and features to enable, a little complex

I wanted to use this as a reversing camera for the caravan. running a laptop from the car the app works fine via a router in caravan. when connected to web browser on my galaxy s8+ it is very slow and laggy. it would be great if I could run it on phone screen. does anyone have any ideas on how to speed it up. cheers. ps. camera is galaxy s4 mini. go figure. tried it on an older s3 mini. all works fine. Just won't work on s4 mini.

App works and looks great but I'm having trouble finding the settings to help my current problem: In an attempt to save my phone's battery I'd like to use the camera without the screen being on, but turning off the screen either stops the video entirely or works for about 15 seconds before freezing/stopping... I am using a Galaxy Note 9. Is there a way I can get the camera fully functioning without needing the screen to be on? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

This app is perfect for turning your Android smartphone (even an older one) into a wireless webcam for livestreaming or security. While the web interface is nice and useful at times, the real power comes in being able to directly access the feed through a URL for use in software like Open Broadcaster Software Studio. I just wish I could find a comparable app (free trial before I buy) for iPhone/iOS that has as high a rating and is as straightforward to use. Good job!
