When you run it your device iPhone or iPad become IP Camera by RTSP protocol.

You can watch video from IP4K wirelessly in your local WIFI network via Google Chrome on any other device. Just type in chrome browser address from IP Cam(left upper corner) like rtsp:// for example.
Or just download VLC Player (We recommended using VLC Player, because low latency and many features) on any computer or mobile device connected to your local network.
Then open VLC Player -> Open Network... -> Type your iPhone IP which showed in IP4K app (in upper left corner) like rtsp:// (for example) -> Press "open" and watch.
Also you can use Apple TV for watching IP Cam stream.

WARNING! This app can drain your battery quickly.
Use power adapter or reduce resolution and FPS (SD with 20 frames per second is good for long working time on single charge).

With VLC player you also can record streams from many IP Cam's at same time!

Works just as advertised

This IP camera app is a breeze to set up and use. I start the app and it tells me the IP address of the camera (phone), the URL. I simply enter that into any other device or computer's VideoLan (VLC) streaming address, and instantly the moving image appears. It's quick and easy. The app is very fast and has adjustable resolution to accommodate multiple data rates. I love this app, and I highly recommend it.

Rtsp not working in VLC

I put in the rtsp network URL provided by the app in vlc and pressed play but nothing happened.
Am I missing something because from my understanding, my phone camera should be streaming on vlc player on my laptop but nothing happens?

Update: it seems to work on another laptop I’ve tried with VLC. I’m just not sure why it’s not working on my original laptop.

Update 2: Everything worm properly. My windows firewall was blocking VLC access to the network that’s why it wasn’t loading. So everything is all good and working!!
