Bringing an Android Camera Signal into Livestream Studio

Livestream Studio allows you to use your Android device as a remote camera source. You will need a Livestream account in order to use this feature.

 Download the Livestream Android application.

Connect your Android device's Wi-Fi to the same network that your Livestream Studio system is connected to.

Open the Livestream Android application. You will need a Livestream account to proceed with using the app.

Don't have a Livestream account? Tap Continue with Email, then Sign up. This will create a free account on Livestream and grant you access to the app's features, including remote camera. Keep in mind this will not allow you to go live to Livestream unless you pay for a plan.

Tap the menu icon in the upper left corner, then the gearwheel.

This will open your settings menu. Tap Studio Remote Camera.

Tap Use as Remote Camera.

This will activate your Android device as a live Remote Camera source. The notification will read "Waiting for Studio to connect..."

You can hold your camera at portrait or landscape mode; the picture will still hold a 16:9 aspect ratio.

In Studio, ensure you have added a Remote Camera as an input.

  • If you have not added a Remote Camera as an input, open your Studio settings and select the Inputs tab.
  • Click the + button to add a new input and select Remote Camera from the drop-down menu.
  • Save your changes.

In Studio, select the Remote Cam tab.

You will find a list of all remote camera devices currently connected to your network. You can click each remote camera device to reveal a preview.

Find your Android device from the list of devices.

Now you may use your Android Device as a Remote Camera source in your Livestream Studio production.




If you are not seeing any options on the list within the Remote Cam tabs, please check the following: 

  • Make sure the remote system is on the same network, connected to the same Router or Access Point as your Studio system.
    • If the system is on the same network but using a different access point, the Remote Camera will not properly connect. 
  • Check that the following ports are open if you use a firewall: 
    • UDP: 5353, 60936 - 61036
      TCP: 60936 - 61036
  • Check that Bonjour Service is started.
