Not likely to happen as something with the game installed needs to connect to the same server and render those images to then stream them to your phone.

That would just be an advantage on most monuments, and a bother to have set up. I’f you dont constantly use your phone you would be at a disadvantage

This is something which is more or less impossible to do. It means the server would have to render a virtual player which sees everything and stream this data to your app. Just rendering in you as a player to see cameras ect, would take up more performance than most highpopservers have without a single player on

You would have to install the whole game on your phone and render the whole server on your phone

@The Electrician this would be an actual way to do it though for most ppl quite impossible.

True @Jhanic Satori, they could charge a tax to mantain their broadcast server or third party like this, using the client computer to render and stream the feed. It doesn’t even need to be high resolution.

@Alistair McFarlane couldn’t instead render of 3D vid just be a 2D thermal like feed? a smartphone app could render this easily. Did you guys tried something like this? The server could feed a bitmap/matrix with the info necessary to render on the mobile app.

using something client p2p upload would be cool if doable.
anyways thank you for the attention. You guys at facepunch are really great devs. Hope some day I make a game with update rate like you guys.

Could be possible, doesnt have to be live streaming cameras. But just some 1 hour delayed 1 frame photos from the cctv setup, so you can regonize who raided you, for revenge.

The game must be running in the server. Then the game just streams a very low quality video feed from your pc to the internet. It could be done this way.
Technically speaking I don’t see another way.

Why not let us request a still jpeg of what the camera sees from the server?

Limit the number of request each user can make per minute or something like that?

I think the upcoming Steam Deck will solve this Problem .. ;)

I think the problem could be solved in the following way, the Rust+ application is done in React Native and there is a way to run a view of a Unity application.
The Rust team would just have to make a new Unity client where it would connect to the server and only render, via the phone’s hardware, what the camera sees.
I would like to hear some feedback from the team on this concept as it could solve this problem.
