Setup videostreamning on my Mac. Works well. Now I want the video to show in the videowindow in Qgroundcontrol. Installed Gstreamer as described in this link: https://github.com/mavlink/qgroundcontrol/blob/master/src/VideoStreaming/README.md. But then what? Video isn´t showing up in Qgroundcontrol. Obviously more setting up is required. Haven´t been able to find further instructions anywhere.
Please, could someone help me with this? I have no programming skills and I don’t know what “build” or “brew” is. In the link above it’s described as very simple on the mac: Install the two gtstreamer files and that’s it. But I get no video in Qgroundcontrol.
Check your UDP port for video. Ensure your broadcast video is RTP h264 encoded. You could have a look in the console window to see if any GStreamer errors have occurred.
Thanks, Anton. Will do - and report back.
I would be interessted to know which digitizer (for Analog-Videotransmission) works with Mac & gstreamer.
Is live video streaming available in Qgroundcontrol v2.9.7.
I installed Gstremer in my windows pc but video source option is not in qgroundcontrol v2.9.7.
Is there any other way suggest me.
The is an out of the box solution to bring a low latency rtsp video stream from 5.8G analog fpv tx to QGC.
Connect the composite signal by a VS8100-V2 converter to a standard dualband wifi router that further expands the range of 2.4G wifi telemetry and offers a 5GHz connection to QGC lower interfering the 2.4G RC TX.
add a RTSP video stream in QGC
rtsp://(ip addr. of VS8100-V2):554/live.sdp
that brings a reliable video stream to the ground station and big stationary diversity fpv receivers and antennas can be used.
VS8100 is a common video surveillance analog to ip stream converter.
Has anyone ever tested this with QGC 4.xx?
All 4 versions and Daily since 4.0 cannot receive RTSP from this source - only WAITING FOR VIDEO.
The iOS app Periscope HD turns the cam into a rtsp://x.x.x.x:8554/live.sdp transmitter that behaves exactly like the hardware, there it also only works with QGC 3.xx.
Even if “Disable When Disarmed” has been set once, video can only be freed from the “Disabled” state again by deleting all settings at start-up.
The RTSP converter is part of the ground station and must therefore always have a different IP than the vehicle.
I have tested some QGC on Mac OS Sierra, Mojave, Catalina and Monterey on various Macs.
One strange thing now happens the streams get perfectly recorded in QGC but not showed in the video window?
