Streaming video from one WP 8.1 device to another through PeerFinder.


  • Hello!

    I have app that need to transfer live video stream between WP 8.1 devices. I am already tried to use PeerFinder but it only uses Bluetooth connection which is too slow (16 - 30 kilobytes/second) for video. Then I tried to use WiFiDirectDevice but this code (with all capabilities enabled in app manifest):

    String deviceSelector = Windows.Devices.WiFiDirect.WiFiDirectDevice.GetDeviceSelector();
    var devInfoCollection = await DeviceInformation.FindAllAsync(deviceSelector);

    can't find any wifi direct device. Have tested on lumia 820, 520 and HTC S8.

    Maybe wp 8.1 have some api to stream 720p video between devices though wi-fi ?
