I recently purchased the theta v. after having no luck w the insta360. I am trying to stream live in 360 without the need of a computer. The insta was supposed to connect to android via a cable - and stream… but it simply did not work… eventually (after 3 months) someone from Insta360 called me and told me that it doesn’t work at the moment… and they are trying to fix it.
So - I returned it - and got the Theta V yesterday… now it seems you can install a plugin - so that the camera can independently stream live. I am going to try that later today. It does seem a bit convoluted to set up. but perhaps once it’s set - it’s easier going forward.
That being said – I am wondering if there’s a way to stream from the android? I saw a dead thread w a guy who seemed to have create an app that allowed this wirelessly… but that tread is a year or so dead… I used to be able to do this w the theta S. years ago - w an app called camerafi. but I think they no longer allow this to be done… or don’t support it - and when I plugged in the theta V – my phone didn’t seem to recognize it was plugged in anyway.
Is there an easy solution to stream live to YT and or FB? I did a search - and most of the threads were a couple years old.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
