I installed and configured UAVcast for initial bench testing and observed interesting, informative and entertaining results. Once I got the IP addresses and the udp/tcp aspects sorted I am very happy with the programs - great job Bernt and all who contributed and tested.
Before I got the parameters sorted I activated the Pi and the Mission Planner PC and I got a still picture from the picam superimposed directly within the Mission Planner HUD. When all IPs and connections were correct, the streaming video was received by way of a separate gstreamer window.
This raises the question: What prevents us from displaying the streaming video directly within the Mission Planner HUD? I currently use the Patrick Duffy HUD, but every time I change a MP setting, the HUD screen goes behind the MP window and I have to put it back out in front to continue to see it.
Thanks for any thoughts on this,
