You can now stream video from ESP32 devices to multiple clients, including previously problematic VLC and Blynk video widget.

I use Blynk IoT platform a lot. When one of my projects required a video stream I was very pleased to discover there is a video widget included with the Blynk App builder.

I was planning to use ESP32-CAM or ESP32-EYE module to stream video, only to discover that Blynk widget does not display a video stream from any of the Espressif’s examples, due to, as I discovered, “chunked” HTTP response.

Neither Blynk widget, not VLC (one of my favorite players) like chunked streams.
