Android Rtsp Usage

Loved my Samsung Galaxy but recently replaced it.  Result is that I have a relatively decent smart phone with little, to no, purpose in life.  Repurposing as a RTSP server device seemed like a reasonable task.

Reviewed a series of video server apps in the Google Play Store, but only one that worked well for me with Linux RTSP clients was:

After installing the app and short configuration, you start the server by clicking the 'Start server' button in the video preference activity.

Once the phone streaming is running, it displays a live view of the scene and the connection URL.

Open it with VLC and you're cookin' with bacon:
