R. Mahesh Kumar, S. Jagadesh Kumar


This paper presents the methodologies used to integrate the open-source LIVE555 media server with an MPEG4 based video recorder software module running on an Android based mobile phone. The system implemented makes use of the camera on the mobile phone to capture real time video image which is then streamed over the WiFi network such that the video can be viewed on remote stations using the standard VLC media player. The paper also describes the development process and platform needed to develop applications for Android based embedded platform.
