Video from Raspberry Pi via netcat into Jitter
Nov 13 2013 | 6:14 pm
Hi! I have a few raspberry pi computers with camera boards and I would like to stream the video feeds into Jitter. I can get video into Jitter by streaming the signals via rtsp but there is significant latency and the image quality is poor. Outside of jitter I can successfully stream video from a raspberry pi using nc piped to Mplayer and it looks great without much latency.
nc -l 5001 | mplayer -fps 31 -cache 1024 -
I also have tried the vipr external but i believe its only for encoding to various codecs or receiving jitter matrixes from another computer running max but I'm not positive. Maybe there is a tweak i need to do to get it to see the raw stream from nc? Anyway, my question is is there a way to get a raw video feed from nc into Jitter? I think Mplayer is just using the ffmpeg libraries to display the video. is there a set of tools for jitter that could do the same thing? or is there a raw decoder for jitter that can take a raw TCP video feed and display it. i even tried udp receive but i believe its only for messaging and not video. i would like to avoid using rtsp and quicktime due to the latency and video quality.
Anyway,I'm really hoping there is something simple I have missed! Any help or ideas is appreciated.
