Guide to Android Video Streaming

Mobile phone technology has come a long way in recent years. In fact, at the rate things are going, mobile technology now lets a user do most operations normally done on a personal computer. Android technology is a particularly good example of this. Similar to a computer, the software used in mobile devices includes an operating system, middleware and key applications. Features of Android phones include application frameworks, Dalvik virtual machine, integrated browser, and optimized graphics, SQLite for structure storage, media support, GSM telephony, bluetooth, WIFI, camera, and GPS.

With all these amazing features, every Android phone provides excellent streaming capabilities. Video streaming of sports events, movies, music and other media footage is an extremely popular activity. The advanced technology used by Android allows excellent Android video streaming capabilities.

The best way to get Android video streaming is to use Tversity and NSWPlayer. If you want to try this on your Android phone, there are some items that you will need to ensure the technology is properly utilized. Tversity must be installed on a personal computer, NSWPlayer must be installed on your Android phone, and a handbrake encoder for converting movies to lower resolution to optimize progressive playback. Once you have installed the items needed, there are some things to look at before you begin encoding your video. It is important to keep the video in high quality while making it the smallest size possible. It is also important to ensure the bit rate matches the resolution size. Once this is done, your video is ready to encode. Setup your handbrake encoder to minimize resolution and optimize playback quality. Remember that the speed of the whole process depends upon your personal computer’s hardware specification. Next step is to set up Tversity for streaming. Go to the Transcoder section and under “when to transcode” select “never”. Then go to the general settings section, and under home network enter in your computer’s IP address, that way your phone has access to your video files.

Once the computer and phone are connected, install an Android media player that will pick up on progressive MP4. This is where the NSWPlayer is used. At this point in time, it is the only media player that works with Android. Streaming is now possible once all the above components are installed. For home Wi-Fi streaming, open your android phone web browser and input your computer’s IP. From here navigate to Tversity’s mobile WAP GUI and select it as your default player. Now, search for your favorite video and start streaming! The streaming quality may depend on your internet connection.

The pleasure of android video steaming is now yours to enjoy. If the above process seems complicated, seek advice from industry experts like Streaming Video Systems (SVS). They can help you install video streaming on your Android phone for personal or professional use.
