It appears Tinycam has reversed engineered the protocol that the Wyze app uses to access its cloud servers. Which is how its Android app is able to show the users’ camera streams. They are able to do this without changes to existing server code that Wyze is running.
I can understand if the developers at Wyze have too much workload to prioritize creating a Windows desktop client. I also understand that some people prefer (or are forced) to view their cameras on their desktops.
Why can’t Wyze document this “protocol” and release it? Tinycam already has it. There is so much open source floating around, and someone can quickly come up with a Windows desktop application. It won’t be too much of a competition for the Wyze app, as it won’t offer the other features like motion detection, etc.
For some people, that’s enough reason to do it, as this long thread shows.
