    Has it been done? It'd be very convenient if I can hook up a google glass to receive the video feed.

    thanks

    It's feasible. If you can output the video to RTSP stream or encode it as hangouts video, you can stream a video payload through play_video. I think it would require jumping through several hoops and you'll need more hardware than just the paired smartphone to receive and encode the video signal.

    I personally think this would be the first real purpose for Google glass, rather than just being a glasshole.

    Anyone meet with any success with this ?
