Live video streaming functionality in a Mendix App

0
I would like to build live streaming functionality into a mendix native app. The use case is: a remote user relays live video using their smartphone and mendix app to a remote expert who provides issue resolution assistance. Can this be achieved with mendix and if so, what are the starting points and route to take? I’d appreciate some advice please.

Hi Gareth,

The Mendix server will not help you to do video streaming. Streaming and forwarding live video is a complex solution and could probably not build from scratch but should use a 3rd party solutions that can be integrated in your app.

There is already a module for this in the App Store. https://appstore.home.mendix.com/link/app/113742/  and https://appstore.home.mendix.com/link/app/109621/ 

To implement this in the Native module you might need to some effort.

Or use the web view widget https://docs.mendix.com/appstore/modules/native-mobile-resources , might give you an quick escape to embed some HTML

To learn how to build a widget for the native apps, you could follow this tutorial https://docs.mendix.com/howto/extensibility/build-native-widget 

Cheers, Andries
