Native mobile app versions
Where do I find the native mobile app versions?
VDO.Ninja - Apps on Google Play
App Store
At present, the native mobile app versions of VDO.Ninja are fairly basic, but they can be useful for a couple of reasons.
  • The native Android app supports screen-sharing, while the browser-based version of VDO.Ninja does not.
  • More camera types are listed on the Android native app version; some wide-angle lenses appear that do not appear in the browser-based version.
  • Sometimes the native mobile app will work when the browser-based versions do not.
There are some limitations to the native mobile app versions though.
  • Rooms and group chat are not supported yet.
  • Passwords are not supported yet.
  • UVC camera and mic support is not yet available, but we're working on it. UVC devices are supported via the Raspberry Pi and Nvidia Jetson devices however (see bottom).
  • The native app requires a modern version of Android, while the web-based version of VDO.Ninja has been tested with Android 5.1 using Chrome.

You have a few different ways to download and install the Android app for VDO.Ninja. Installing the Google Play Store version is recommended, as it can auto-update with patches and new features automatically.

The native App Store app is very basic, but It does support the ability to stream your camera's output to a remote computer, with the option to enable the Torch light. While screen share support is available in-app, it currently only works when the app is open, making it a bit useless if you need to switch apps. If you're looking to screen-share from an iPhone or iPad with VDO.Ninja, other ways to do it exist. See this guide here:

Room support and passwords are not supported yet in the native mobile apps.
