I'm a little bit new to the raspberry pi. Currently, I have a raspberry pi camera recording live video. I want to transfer this stream to an android app I developed. I really don't know where to start, and I would appreciate any guidance.

    can you give some detail of the android app. Since you've completed that, your pi needs to send the stream in a way that is compatible with the app Mar 20, 2020 at 22:09

We have developed something that you want. You need to install the motion package on your raspberry pi. It will transmit streams over HTTP/HTTPS protocol with authentication.
You should install motion then configure it to access the web page over any hosts over LAN or the internet. Then, add these streams to a web-view on your android application.

  1. installation:
    Video Streaming from raspberry to an external server

  2. Configuration:
    You can configure stream quality according your bandwidth limitations.

  3. Make it more secure:
    Motion security
    If you are concerned about the security of the streams, you can make it much more secure with some configuration and insight.
