Title: Stream video over wifi
Post by: thirtytwo on Dec 16, 2019, 03:39 am
Is it possible, using the current Arduino libraries, to stream video from the mipi camera over wifi using the Vidor?

I see there are some reasonably priced HDMI to WiFi dongles. I wonder if one of those would work on the MKR Vidor 4000?

A WIFI dongle is too much power (at that point I'd just use a Raspberry Pi). There's a way to do this but I don't have time to write the firmware myself. I was hoping the Arduino framework would support this somehow.

What about access to the raw frame buffers or at least the DMA channel between the FPGA and the HDMI (is there one?)? So far it's completely useless if all I can do is tell a black box to route video from MIPI to HDMI. I need to be able to at least route the stream if not manipulate it.

I think limit will be how much NINA can send data to server.
You need custom FPGA image to access receiving buffer from camera.

I think hires still images is feasible with NINA.
