HUD video from USB camera

(Kg Fairbarn) #1

Anyone having luck in overlaying video to the HUD window?

Mission Planner is crashing when I rt click HUD display>Video>Start Camera. Thought maybe it was a MP version issue so I used an older version and it still crashed.

I am trying to overlay the video from a USB camera to an onboard Windows 10 computer running Mission Planner (connected tp pixhawk via the USB telem0 port). I was able, I think?, in the past to use my laptops camera to overlay using the camera option.

I have not tried the GStream function yet but plan on trying that if I strike out here. Also curious how I can get an IP camera RTSP feed into mission planner.

It crashes for me as well. I’ve created an issue in the MP’s issue list.
