gStreamer How do you use it

Is there any documentation on how to implement gStreamer. I am curious how one is to get the video off the drone and then to the hud.


Hi Ricky,

Here is a blog post about this .

I have gone over that a few times…thanks for sending it my way.
I am confused by a couple things. It appears that there is a Wifi Modem thats used for the wireless traffic. But in this example it’s connected to some form of Pixhawk carrier board I have never seen. It’s almost as though its a raspberry pi and Pixhawk cube together.
I think I need to read more.

Ah found that Carrier board.

Hi Ricky,

The method should work on your setup as well. Carrier board is just a board with RPI and other sensors packed nicely in a small size. You can just connect RPI to Pixhawk and run the code. Nothing different there

Personally I think its too much extra equipment to loft.
I can get video on my Mission planner hub or phone using a video Ethernet server on my ground station. But thats for pointing me in the right direction.

Soon we will launch cube carrier board with RPI CM3 same as orrigional carrier board with Built in CM3. I think it will be more convenient , and cheaper to use on projects.

@rickyg32 Gstreamer works fine with most of the embedded computers like RPI, ODROID and BeagleBone.The pipelines can be somewhat confusing and there is not easy way to '‘fit’ them together.

I know 2 ''ready made ‘’ projects available to our community

I thinks these are good starting point because they are proven working with Ardupilot and you have a good choice of platform, I suggest the RPI3 - raspberrypi 3

You need to be more specific about the prob you have, camera you are using, if you want help.

There is no need to be that rude. This is open source software. Nobody is getting paid other than donations. Everyone working on this is doing it out of passion and love for this project. It’s not a duty, it’s not a job.

I can assure you that if you ask the right question with sufficient information provided, there will always be someone answering and helping.
