CameraFi Live is a freemium Android app for streaming from your phone. It supports the RTMP protocol for streaming to Uscreen. You'll find ads and watermarks in the app. but if you upgrade to a paid subscription version, that is all removed.

NOTE: While we've tested CameraFi Live ourselves, there can definitely be issues that will pop up depending on the app updates or your type of phone. We can't guarantee this app is going to work smoothly for everyone.

First, install the app through the app store. Once launched, you'll see a screen with all of the streaming channels available. Select RTMP to connect to Uscreen.

Once in RTMP, you will see the URL Settings. To add your RTMP URL and the Stream Key, go to your backend in Uscreen.

Navigate to Content and select Live Events. Choose the Live Event you want to start streaming and click Edit. On the Stream tab, you're going to see a Stream URL and a Stream Key. You will need to copy both the URL and the key and paste them in the URL Settings of CameraFi Live.

After adding all of the details, you can go live to test your connection. Remember to always test it with time so you can check for issues. To test it, go to Content and click Live Events. Select the Live Event you want to stream and click Edit. Then under the Stream tab, click on Test Player. If you see your video/content from CameraFi Live, you are ready to go live.

Just note that you sometimes have to wait a good 30 seconds to see your content.
