Video through bluetooth
How to transfer files using bluetooth
Hello, I’d like to stream a video from my Android phone to another Android phone over Bluetooth. I see that there is a VDP profile to use, but this profile is not available in the Android SDK. Instead, there is a profile A2dp that only handles audio streaming. Is there a different way to do this with the Android SDK?
As I previously said, it is not possible to stream video over Bluetooth. Since if SPP or BLE are not appropriate for this type of mass data transmission, I mean if you want to make it as good as A2DP over Bluetooth, I mean Real-Time. If you don’t worry for Real-Time, however. To transmit video data, you can use SPP or BLE, and you can encode and decode the video data yourself. The Bluetooth transmit speed is the most important factor.

I’m working on a project that is actually functioning well, but we want to extend it this year by gathering data from it, which is separate from its current functions. We’ve created an iPad app that uses Bluetooth to power an Arduino. The next move is to send video to the iPad through Bluetooth.
So that’s a starting point for data throughput for a camera that outputs raw frames, except sound and color. You now have two options: you can begin encoding the video stream or you can obtain a large amount of bandwidth. I don’t know what bluetooth’s throughput is, so I can’t help you there.
Unfortunately, encoding needs one of three things: a lot of computing power, advanced hardware, or (possibly) FPGA expertise, all of which I lack. Encoding can help with bandwidth issues, but it comes at a price. You’d have to look at compression and other options to see if you could get this over your interface while still having the Arduino do useful work.
And taking stills can be a pain if you want to attach a camera to a microcontroller because of how the still frames are delivered. There was a Sparkfun camera that gave jpeg frames but didn’t have a set timeframe on how long the encoding took, and then would immediately start spitting out the encoded frame as quickly as it could, and since the frames were too large to fit in RAM on the microcontroller, it had to spend all of its time getting the frame and spitting it out over whatever interface they were using to transmit.

To send a file through Bluetooth, you’ll need a phone that supports Bluetooth file sharing, which isn’t available on all phones. Make sure the mobile phone or device you used to send the video file is matched with your phone first. After that, the video file you send must be properly received on your computer or other mobile device.
Test to see if your device or phone is set up to accept Bluetooth data. Right-click the “Bluetooth” icon in the taskbar and choose “Receive a File” from the drop-down menu. The Bluetooth File Transfer Wizard appears.
Media files streaming on android via bluetooth
Without incurring data charges, use Bluetooth to wirelessly transfer files such as images to and from your mobile devices. Enable Bluetooth to move files between smartphones, tablets, and computers (and visibility). Set up (or pair) the mobile device with the computer if a desktop or laptop is involved.
Bluetooth file transfer is a quick and easy way to send files from one Bluetooth device to another without the use of a separate app. Smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers all support Bluetooth. Android, Fire OS, Blackberry OS, Windows OS, Mac OS, and Linux OS users can move files via Bluetooth.
On iOS and Chrome OS, Bluetooth isn’t enabled. To switch files and images from the iPhone to Android via Bluetooth on iOS, you’ll need to use a separate app like Move to iOS or Apple AirDrop. Bluetooth Share is a system setting that allows Bluetooth file sharing on devices that are Bluetooth compatible (or something similar).
