This is a port of this example to B4i: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/mjpeg-cctv-server.73792/

The code is almost identical.

It turns the iOS device into a CCTV server. You can connect to the device from one or more browsers to see the captured video.

The frame rate is currently set to 6 frames per second. You can change it by modifying IntervalMS. Set it to 50 (1000 / 50 = 20 fps) and it will look much better.

Does it happen when there are less clients connected?

Are you running it in debug mode or release mode?

I'm running on release mode.

In Debug mode I got some error / new connection in log if I press the browser stop/reload button, but the app won't quit.

The log like this in debug:

Application_Start
Application_Active
New connection
Error
New connection
GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1
New connection
Error
New connection
GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1
New connection

There is no error in these logs.

You will need to add iReleaseLogger and hopefully it will provide more information.

Seems removed the following line the app won't quit, any idea how to fix ?

mManager.ClientDisconnected(Me)

I've uploaded a new version. It uses CallSubUtils to add a delay before the client is removed from the list. This solves issues related to the fact that AsyncStreams_Error event can be raised multiple times.

Thank you Erel, it's better than before but I still got some crash. :(

Do you get the same error?
The strange thing is if I enable the iRelease Logger, the app won't crash... (maybe the logger make some delay of the connection??), I will upload the log here if I can able to get the error log later).

Not sure Andriod version also need the CallSubUtils?

Thanks Erel!

Hi,

I have a strange behavior in my iPad mini (iOS version 11.3), the Safari browser does not show pictures (see photo).
Only the Safari on my iPhone with iOS version 10.3.3 works.

Hard to say. Have you tried to kill Safari and connect again?

I have already tried with 3 iOS devices, it works with none.
1) iPad mini
2) iPhone 6+
3) iPhone 6
All 3 devices have iOS version 11+

Only with my old iPhone 5 with iOS version 10 works.

I have already tried many settings, all without success. :(

Apple! :mad::mad::mad:
