Hi,
I have a couple of YI dashboard cameras. They will stream to an android app on the phone, but i want to know if it is possible to stream to my computer.

Does anyone know the technology of streaming?

Cheers, Camerart.

Google, not only is it part of the global domination conspiracy, but it's also a damned good search engine:

Hi O,
Thanks for the link.
On my phone is a YI Dashcam APP, if I got the computer to run Android, how would I get the APP on it?

You don't. Unless you want to try and get an Android emulator running.
However, YI seem to do an application that runs on PC & Mac:

Is this what you're looking for?

Hi O,
Thanks for posting the link, which I installed, but I couldn't get it to work.
When I got the camera, I checked a bit deeper, and I think this particular camera, is a very early one. The camera on the computer app is a home one, which looks different. I have the original app on my phone which works.

I want to know if the computer/phone sends any messages to the camera, or does the camera simply keep streaming?
