    Lightbulb Video in through mini USB (lifeview from Nikon)?

    Hello, I was thinking of using a HDMI to USB cable to send the lifeview of a Nikon D7000 to the screen of the Note 3 .
    The idea is to use this an angle viewfinder alternative, it came after seeing the Aputure V-Screen.
    So when taking very low macro shots, I would not have to lay down on the ground (the LCD screen of the D7000 does not move) but I could look on the Note 3 to frame and adjust focus manually .

    Does anyone have experience with video signals coming into the Note 3 (most information I found is about sending out)? Any special apps needed?
    Did anyone find this way of using an android phone as view screen in a manual? (I had no success till now)
    Anyone has specific Nikon experience with this?


    - DslrDashboard as an interesting app, not clear if it would be needed.
    - Helicon Remote (paid app)
    - CamCap and DSLR Controller (paid apps)

    - Cable on e-bay: Micro to USB 3.0 OTG Data Host Flash Disk Cable for Samsung Galaxy Note 3 => from what I saw this is a female USB to USB3 micro cable. => so the standard cable I have for charging.
