Webcam function on Android
There is a function built into the Android module which activates the phone's (or tablet) camera for use as an MJPEG streaming webcam and is supposed to return a tuple for the address and port # of the stream.
My question is.....once it is enabled for streaming, how would you have the tuple values for the address and port displayed? When you call the function, it enables the camera and you basically only have a camera preview displayed on the screen.
