Cameleon is a universal live streaming app/software used for building complex (or specific) live streaming products. Apps built on Cameleon are taking advantage of this robust and proven solution for saving months of development and testing. The focus is on stability, video quality, ease of use and zero maintenance costs.

Live Pro and many other live streaming apps available on the App Store are based on Cameleon. Standard features include RTMP Live Streaming, Augmented Reality (AR) ready with Filters and Masks, Advanced Video Settings and Broadcasting to major Social Networks and Media Servers.

RTMP is the protocol that maintains persistent connections and allows low-latency communication to deliver streams smoothly and transmit as much information as possible. RTMP is used by major social networks and media outlets for live video streaming. Any application that is properly set up and configured should be able to broadcast live video to these networks using a Stream URL and access credentials.

  • Facebook, YouTube, VLC, Weibo, Livestream, Nginx, Ustream, Codem, Pandora TV, Afreeca.tv, JwPlayer, Red5, Brightcove, Wowza, Dacast, Adobe Media Server and others are supported, some of these platforms being pre-configured like Facebook or YouTube, others can be set up via RTMP.
  • Startups and developers creating their own live video-sharing platform, live chat, or any other idea based on live broadcasting, can save months of development (and possibly years of testing) by taking over and continuing from the robust solution offered by Cameleon. The Xcode project, built with Swift 5.0 is handed over via Bitbucket or GitHub with up-to one month of limited support. See build live streaming apps for iPhone.

    Live Broadcaster is a broadcasting software for Mac and Windows that works with your built-in camera, webcam, USB camera, IP camera and some other audio/video inputs on both desktop and laptop.

    Cameleon Center is a local media server (and media player), preconfigured to seamlessly connect with Live Broadcaster and handle transcoding, connection and communication for delivering livestreams to the network of choice. Its limited UI also offers advanced server settings, monitoring and logging. Cameleon Center is a free, turnkey solution for setting up your livestreams with Live Broadcaster and other Cameleon-based desktop apps.

    Cameleon works with your laptop’s built-in camera, most web cameras, USB cameras and IP cameras. Camera inputs may be limited by supported camera resolutions. Live BroadcasterAlpha recognizes most iSight, FaceTime and FaceTime HD cameras on Mac, and thousands of built-in webcams on PCs. Missed camera modes are being added regularly however, buggy UPnP may interfere with the software's capabilities of recognizing the video input.

    The all new Live Broadcaster coming to Mac, early 2020.

    Building a social networking website and an app that offers live chat or live video streaming and distribution will need at least a Media Server (e.g. Wowza) or some sort of leveraging an existing live streaming service (e.g. YouTube Live). A Live Streaming App that enables users to broadcast live videos and Quality of Service at start for offering an enjoyable user experience and user retention.

    Building a decent live streaming app takes at least three months, even for a very experienced iOS developer, testing and fine-tuning takes 6+ months and needs a large user base even during testing phases. Building and testing is a long and unpredictably costly process with a risky and hard-to-predict outcome. Cameleon offers the above, turnkey, for a very attractive price.

    Apps built with Cameleon™ are customizable livestreaming apps for broadcasting live to RTMP media servers and major social networks.

  • Well built, proven, time-tested since 2014
  • RTMP Live Streaming to any media server
  • Augmented Reality (AR) ready with 3D, lens, masks, filters. Facebook, YouTube, Weibo built-in. New presets and advanced features
  • Built with latest Xcode and Swift 5.0. Check out Live Pro and Request Source Code
  • The average cost for developing apps for iPhone ranges between $10-20K for a simple, and goes above $40K for a more complex app. Based on previous experiences, a typical live streaming app will take ~600 hours until somewhat production ready.

    It is surely better to start from an existing project (if it's from a reliable source and has most of the required features) instead of paying someone for creating the same. Continuing a well established project also saves at least three months of development time, avoids many unforeseen obstacles and months of testing. With five years of success and over one million downloads, Cameleon offers the most solid start-point for your livestreaming apps and we're offering the years of development, testing, refinements and experience for one, relatively low price of 600 hours.

    Less than 0.01% crashes during 2018 & 2019 @AppStore. Latest Xcode, Swift 5.0, clean code, well structured, no mess.
