This is definitely possible, although I can`t say whether he actually did it.
To do it you would 1) find their servers at your house 2) gain access to the servers 3) rewrite their app or crack it to add easy access to stream the video 4) goto the station and access the app you just wrote to stream the video.
Just ask about 5 or 6 people you know to look at the screen and look impressed and you got the illusion that it`s real.
To stream a direct link to a screen you need to be plugged, can`t do that from a remote location or else it would be chaos everywhere. Think about neighbors becoming crazy because they can`t watch their football or childreen watching their cartoons being interupted by a live streaming of a guy playing with himself ( Just the lower part ).
Yeah... those who build the modern television had this comming apparently.
The screens of the world are but tools for IABers to abuse
You can`t hear any speakers in the background at all. We all know train stations and their announcement speakers...
And if his friend`s holding the camera that`s filming him, how come no one anywhere is looking at them at all. You know how when you`re filming someone, there`s other people looking at you?
Lastly, when a train cancellation announcement`s made, many people usually would look up. NO ONE thought a goofy looking guy on the screen seems weird?
the phone he`s using looks like a Nokia N95 from a casual glance.
Also it is possible to hack into the screen in different methods.
1. rig the screen though the hardware before hand where it waits for a a connection to switch the fees.
2. If the tv is displaying stuff though the internet or is anyways linked to the internet though a system of internal networks the computer sending the display could be hacked.
3. another way to hack if the display connects to the internet to get the feeds is find out what ip the machine is getting the feed from and setup another machine with the same ip in a closer network.
the hacking had to have been done with a laptop before hand and later after figuring out the protocals to get to the monitor system a phone application could be written to do what was done on a laptop.
i wanna try
Otherwise, he`d have to pre-hack it from a PC and then route his cell-phone`s signal through a hacked connection. Even then, unless that country is leaps and bounds ahead of the US in connection speed for cell phones, he`d experience serious delay and "sputtering" of the image.
Also, I seriously doubt the screen had a built in speaker.
easy!unless of course it was original footage he edited, where a huge green screen TV wasnt used..
train companies have IT infrastructure spread over a wide geographical area....by their nature.
they`ll have one or 2 IT centers. those people need to be able to support systems remotely. much of the support is done through web interfaced applications because thats the way computers are these days.
the particular application used here is on a public web server and is either unprotected, using the default manufacturers password, or the guy has inside information (perhaps a mate working for the company or whatever)
he uses his phone`s browser to load the webpage and does his deed.
nothing fancy, nothing clever.
Rotoscope + motion tracking = this video.
but would be lovely if it were real
this could all be done with a fancy thing called photo shop and actors.
The same people `hacked` a parked ferari and a highway information screen.
Besides, would me more fun if he could Rick Roll the whole train station :P
