Stream video live from Android device


I am trying to build an android app which will capture video and stream it live. We want to use HLS for streaming the video to other the target devices. We are thinking of handling the delivering the video stream to the server in one of the below two ways.

  1. create an output stream to write to a location on the server and use wowza media server to publish and stream the video from that location. Is this possible as we will have an incomplete file

  2. use rtp stream to transfer the video stream to the server.

I would like to have some pointers which will help me to take the decision.



Hi there, have you heard about or seen the Wowza Android app?

Hi Deepanjan,

There isn’t any documentation like that, or any examples.


For RTP announce you might be able to use this guide as a starting place/reference:

And these guides may also be useful:

Hi Salvadore,

Thanks for the suggestion. I have heard about wowza gocoder. I need to have a separate app as we have other features, along with live streaming. I could not find any documentation pertaining to integrating the wowza gocoder app with another android app.

I would like to know more about this. It would be best if we can integrate the wowza gocoder with my app.
