Streaming camera feed to laptop


#1

Hi All,

Im currently reading the Expo docs and I see that there is a video recording api. I was wondering if there was a way to get a live feed from the camera using your inbuilt API’s.

Im essentially trying to get a live camera feed from my phone to the desktop.

Any suggestions on how to go about this?

Best,

Arseniy

This is currently not possible (streaming a live camera feed over the network) unless you detach. If you detach you could use https://github.com/oney/react-native-webrtc I think.

Yeah I was looking at that. What do you mean by detach?

Like I can’t use the Expo service if I wanted to use webrtc or can I still use it along side?
