Any chance of UVC video support?


(Seth Miller) #1

I use Tower so that my UVC capture device works but I love the layout of qgc. Is there any development on getting it to work? Right now I have a 5.8ghz receiver that literally is plug and play for tower and I’d really love to get it working for qgc.

I believe it should already be supported on Andoid. If it’s not working for you, bring it up here: https://gitter.im/mavlink/qgroundcontrol

The only options I see for video input on both regular and daily build beta are UDP, tcp, and Rtsp. Is there some extra step I have to do with my uvc card to make it send out as tcp or udp?

is there anyone this chat or forum that can help?

how is it possible to once view UVC video on qgrounstation using android?


(Bas Hamans) #5

yup, same question over here. In Tower it works perfect but in QGoundcontrol not.

Can you move this to a QGC GitHub Issue and then we can contine discussion there and I can get the right people involved.

Hey guys was UVC support in QGroundcontrol ever done.
I don’t see the option in the config so thought I would ask.

Edit…never mind it’s a QT issue

Happy New Year all

UVC support was added ages ago. That said the support comes from Qt so we get whatever they support. Which from what I hear is not that great. So some things work, some don’t.

Thanks Don
Ya I kept digging into it and came across some posts about QT and so didn’t look further. Thanks for getting back to me.

I believe you go through Settings/General/Video to hook it up. Not quite sure, haven’t really used it.


(RickyG) #13

Yes I found the video config but UVC isn’t an option in the drop down so I have to assume that QT isn’t supporting it.


(DonLakeFlyer) #14

I think if the UVC device is plugged in it shows up in the dropdown list as a source.

Ya no go.
Will try on my windows Tablet tonight.

So here are my observations.
On Android.
UVC video works in a version of Tower I have,
UVC video is a no go on qGroundControl.

Windows 10
UVC works on Mission Planner.
UVC works on Qgroundcontrol. Requires selection of the video source and then restart it. But it works.

So much to my disappointment I can’t use qGroundcontrol…sadness.
