Knocking Live Video provides phone to phone broadcasting

There are a few apps out right now for Android that allow you to broadcast video on your phone’s camera over the internet such as QIK, but Knocking Live Video provides the first way to broadcast phone to phone. This is important especially with the development of the HTC EVO, because now we have a viable way to do video conferencing with the forward-facing camera.

The UI seems to be very good and the app works as advertised. On a standard 3G connection the video is clear and has very little lag. I encourage our readers to try this app out if you have the need for video sharing or conferencing.

A Droid or Nexus One is suggested and Android 1.6 or above is required to install Knocking Live Video Beta.

    Cool app. Does it also send sound while sending video or is it video only?

    Motorola Cliq users (like myself) are currently unable to use this because we’re still using 1.5. To upgrade, we have to wait for Moto to finish upgrading their MotoBlur service, which I hope is soon.

    Good app so far but disables pattern lock and a buggy. Good potential though, will try more when they’ve solved these issues.

    Seems this test was done with Wifi, would 3G be worse?

    I’m doing a cross country trip on foot so I’ve been looking for an app like this for a while. I’m using UStream because it hits more than one person, but the performance is about the same.
