Hi,
The fact of that i ask about technologies makes the readers be interested in it and try to see possibilities of development, I do not ask for asking. When I receive ambiguous answers I feel that at least he analyze my question.

To all this I was seeing that Youtube is changing again the policies of use, as well as Google, some time ago I commented. Today's question is, apart from the excellent examples of @Erel, were there any advances?

Many thanks for your all answer and help @DonManfred i expect continue to buy your libraries.

Thanks all.

Thanks Erel for the advice.-
I have a client who asked me for a solution for a rural area, needs to control a water tank for animals with a remote camera, there is no Internet only 3G and 4G, I was watching developments with nodemcu and a camera esp32, my idea was to do something in B4a to see the security cam.

Might be possible with ffmpegencoder which latest version has support for camera and of course streaming. I will do some tests and let you know.

Depending how far away he is between his house and where the camera is, it would be easier to use an IP Camera, and a set of ubiquity NanoStations to link the camera back to the house network.

Interesting - I was not aware of those. Had a look at Amazon.it and prices start from EUR 55 and upwards although if the cheapest ones are suitable for outdoor use I don't know.

I use them all the time, and they are amazing for point to point networks, and they work for great distances.

Yes the Ubiquity solution is good but for places where there is stable internet, here the case is to transmit video over 3g or 4g in low resolutions and frames per second.

@ocalle
can you explain the setup a little bit more? Do I understand you correctly that you would use an android phone as a camera and use it to stream to a destination such as a PC, another android device?

Hmm...in your screenshot, I cannot understand the need for an Android device in your solution. Of course, you can use it to watch the stream if NodeMCU has the software to stream over 3g or 4G. Maybe the reolink-go suggested by @techknight is a better solution?
