My device (Xperia X5 premium) includes support for hardware encoding it's 4k video (3840 x 2160) using either H264 or HEVC(265) which I would like to stream to software on my PC over wifi. Unfortunately after testing multiple IP camera apps none of them will allow access to the 4k feed, with all of them reporting 1080p as the best quality available.

I am wondering if this is limitation is API related (all though the open source app "Open Camera" is able to access my camera in 4k modes) or just some arbitrary limitation hard coded by the various developers? Is anyone aware of an existing IP camera app that does support 4k cameras?
