The setup is very easy and there are a few options in the main menu, such as which camera to use, and whether sound will be streaming or not. To stream the video just go on your computer or other Android device and type the IP address in, and that's it. Once the video begins streaming, an IP address is shown in the bottom of the monitor. Flash player is required to view the feed. The image is choppy and pretty low resolution in order to keep the bandwidth down, but overall the quality is not bad at all.
