The VidiU app for Android requires a device that meets the following requirements:
- 64-bit processor
- minimum of 2 GB of RAM -- 3 GB of RAM is strongly recommended*
- Android OS version 7.0 or higher
*At this time, the minimum RAM level requirement on the VidiU app is set in the Google Play store at 2 GB, but this minimum level may be increased in the future based on customer feedback.
These minimum requirements are present because watching a preview video stream on the Android device while also using the Android device's cellular connection as a network uplink for the VidiU can require significant device resources, and not all Android devices are capable of performing these tasks.
Only the following devices have been tested by Teradek with the VidiU app for Android:
- Samsung Galaxy S9
- Samsung Galaxy S9+
- Google Pixel 2
- Samsung Galaxy S8
- Samsung Galaxy S8+
Android devices with lower RAM or processor performance may need to have the encoding / streaming settings reduced, or only perform local VidiU device configuration and not use the streaming uplink option.
