Live Streaming DJI Drone Footage

Table of Contents

Did you ever want to add a drone camera to your live stream? The recent addition of an RTMP source to mimoLive (via the FFmpeg Source) allows you to stream video directly into mimoLive without telemetry and control overlays. This also allows you to stream from the wild via the phone’s LTE data connection.

In order to do this, you will need:

  • An iPhone or Android phone
  • The Litchi app (https://flylitchi.com/) or any other app that provides RTMP output and can fly the Drone.
  • A supported drone according to the developers of Litchi as of Mar. 2022:
    • DJI Mavic Mini 1 (which we used and tested)
    • DJI Mavic Mini 2
    • DJI Mavic Mini SE
    • DJI Mavic Air 2S
    • DJI Mavic Air 2,
    • DJI Mavic 2 (Zoom/Pro),
    • DJI Mavic (Air/Pro),
    • DJI Phantom 4 (Standard/Advanced/Pro/ProV2)
    • DJI Phantom 3 (Standard/4K/Advanced/Professional)
    • DJI Inspire 1 (X3/Z3/Pro/RAW)
    • DJI Inspire 2
    • DJI Spark
  • mimoLive 6.0b9 or newer

We’ve only tested the DJI Mavic Mini 1 so please let us know if you have success with other drones in the forum.

Preparing mimoLive

First, you have to set up an FFmpeg Source for RTMP ingest in mimoLive:

8c10e333 1f1f 414f 94ee 5df9c6109d5f
  • Make sure you replace the IP number “” with the IP number of your Mac.
  • If you’re trying to connect via the public internet, you need to set up an IP address that can be reached from outside your local network. You usually can achieve this by setting up port forwarding on your router but your IP service provider needs to assign you a unique IP address.
  • Make sure to set it to “Keep alive” so that it doesn’t stop when the connection from the drone drops and the Litchi app can try to reconnect.

Configuring the Litchi app

  1. Tap on the “Sharing” icon:

  1. Select “RTMP Streaming”:

  1. Enter the RTMP server URL:
e67e34d4 466d 4c1c 8f47 e4c29daf9f1f

When the stream is established, you will see a status message:
