Using Andriod phone as a Camera and Projecting Live On Screen

Andriod phones aren't just phones, they're way more than a phone. Simply they could do any task possible by coding.
And for the same, I'd applied android phones to work as a camera for my events.

Being and engineering student I had gone to a village near Pune for an NSS Camp, at the camp we'd done a number of activities which can be seen in the video at the end of this post.

Backstage Team
At the camp, I was part of the backstage team and it was my responsibility to run the projector and make sure that the screen displayed and engaged the audience.

It was the first time I'd experimented this stuff and I'm extremely grateful to my teachers and co-workers who allowed me to experiment this concept.

What I did was.....
Downloaded the app named I.P. Camera   from google play store to my phone.
Later I started the wifi hotspot and connected my laptop to the hotspot. Please be sure that the phone and laptop both are on the same wifi network.

The video Below gives a brief introduction to the app:

Once you start the server in the I.P. Camera it gives you a link which you have to type in your browser, typically I use Chrome. Once you've entered the link it displays the live imagery of the objects your phone is targeting. Now as my laptop was also connected to the projector, everything on my laptop screen was casted on the projector screen and the people at the venue could see it.
