How to Live Stream Using an Android Phone and External Camera



In this video, Mike demonstrates how to connect an external camera to an android phone and live stream to YouTube or any streaming service that allows for manual RTMP setup using the USB Camera Pro app.

This does NOT work with iPhones because Apple uses a closed system OS compared to Android’s open system.

The list of items needed include an Android phone, camera with and HDMI output plus the following:

1) UVC Capture Card –

2) 1.5″ HDMI cable –

3) USB-C to USB 3.0 Adapter (or adapter that works with your phone) –

  1. Thanks Mike, I have realized my first transmision of a wedding with you video support. I have a littlie question, With these chinese adapter uvc your phone recognize the 1080 a 60 fps? I have a phone with microusb input but my smartphone only recognize 30 fps but I have a camera sony of 60 fps 1080

  2. Hi Mike again.. This video has been a great inspiration… Q. You say that you use power banks.. But how do you power the phone as well as get the capture input into the micro USB of the phone at the same time..? Thanks for the help..

  3. Mike, great video! Thank you!

    My issue with just using my phone has been lag and pixelization. I don't think a better camera solves that. How are you minimizing lag and pixelization?

  4. Can this method works on a hard drive? Like instead of using a phone, the video capture card will be plugged directly to a hard drive or a storage where it has GB memory to it like sd card or something. In that way the video or files that you’ve recorded will be saved to the device like hard drive or sd card that i mentioned. Please respond thanks!

  5. Hi Mike.. Q. when you stream are you getting the audio from the camera through the USB capture dongle thingy.? I get video only… with a Sony AX700… but a camlink4K gives me camera audio aswell as the video..!!!

    I can answer this myself now from an Amazon buyer who had the same prob….

    This review is for BlueAVS Audio Video Capture Cards HDMI to USB 1080p USB2.0 Record via DSLR Camcorder Action Cam with USB Extension Cable. Model number is BLAVCCUSB20IN.

    It works. The latency is near zero. It will do 60fps at 720p or less. It's really great as an entry capture card for a Twitch streamer who is just starting out (if you have an HDMI splitter also to get output to monitor). This will capture your 720p consoles at 60fps and output at the same. Higher resolutions are 30fps only. I was unable to test at 4K, but 2K did work @30fps.

    I read in another review that someone was unable to capture audio from this device in OBS. This does work, but not similar to Elgato devices. On the BlueAVS, the video and audio devices are separate and need to be added into OBS scenes individually. I used instructions I found in the comments of a YouTube video.

    1) Plug in your console's HDMI into the video capture usb.

    2) download OBS studio

    3) In OBS under SOURCES, add an "audio input capture" and set DEVICE to "digital audio interface (USB digital audio)". Click OK.

    4) Right click in the AUDIO MIXER, and select "Advanced audio properties"

    5) here, go to "audio input capture" (the one we created in step 3), and set "audio monitoring" to "Monitor and output" You will now hear your console's sound.

    6) in OBS under "sources", add a "video capture device".

    7) In the properties for the just added video capture device set these options:

    – Set DEVICE to "USB video"

    – set RESOLUTION/FPSTYPE to "custom"

    – set RESOLUTION to 1280×720

    – set FPS to 60This review is for BlueAVS Audio Video Capture Cards HDMI to USB 1080p USB2.0 Record via DSLR Camcorder Action Cam with USB Extension Cable. Model number is BLAVCCUSB20IN.

  6. I can't get the Pro app to recognize my camera (Sony A73). I am using the capture card you link to, into my Samsung Galaxy S9+ running Android 10. I have double checked the stream URL and key. I have no problem If I run the camera through a Camlink 4K video capture into my laptop and then to YouTube. Is it because of Android 10 or is there a solution?

  7. Very interesting setup. Can a team of eg. 4 persons have this setup and connect through a firmware switch app (streamyard or other) and you can have a 4 cam live stream of a sport event?

  8. I connected or tried to connect according to this manual, but there is no picture yet. My card is EasyCap Video USB Grabber UTV007 and the problem is in it. The control light does not turn on, which means that there is no power from the phone and therefore does not work and does not transfer the picture .It works normally on the computer.Probably a setup problem.Please help me.

  9. Great content. I have an Apeman action cam that I am working with to live stream to twitch channel my running and racing events. Going to work through the app to get that setup. I bought the app to share my camera through twitch live app, but I think this rtmp setup might be way better. Thanks again for the great content!
