Hi,The demo says DM365-368, but the board is a 365 the same as you sell or a prototype of 368?Other question, if I get a DM365 and a 5MP camera, can I do the same streaming of 720p h264 encoded HD over USB (or IP network), or do I also need to buy the $600 or $700 source code ? Also, is the DM355 good enough for the same task?Thank you in advance
Either DM365 or DM368 works, DM368 is backwards comaptible with DM365 with 300MHz clock. But DM368 can work at 432MHz. Leopardboard is DM365 based platform.
Yes, you can get streaming of 720p h264 encoded HD over USB or IP CAM based on Leopardboard 365 + LI-5M03 5M Camera board, you don't need to buy the source code if you just need binary file for demo, which you can download from our weblink: www.leopardimaging.com/Download.html
Thanks for your reply. I still need one precision:
When you say "if you just need binary file for demo", I'm not sure what it means.
I want to stream live video directly over USB or network using my own code, not just a demo recording a file. Is this possible without the source code?
The website for downloading is only pre-compiled binary file, which means you can load this binary file onto Leopardboard 365 to video streaming.
Of course, you can load your own software to run live video if your software has UVC driver and application, or IP functions already.
I'm sorry to ask again, it is not very clear still.
Does the camera have any Linux driver?
Does it support UVC?
Or that has to be coded.
In other words, can I get the video output using any UVC open source tool for example (or code) "out of the box" (i mean no extra software to pay for) - and I mean 720p resolution, 30fps video of course, that i feed to x264 (or my software which uses x264 and supports UVC)
Thanks once again and sorry for insisting.
Yes, it is UVC compliance, it needs UVC driver to have USB video stream working. I don't think any UVC open source can easily work on this without changes.
Just kindly note that Both USB Camera and IPCAM source codes are IP protected, you can run the binary file for demo, but have to pay for source code if needed.
Bill, thanks again.
According to your words ("I don't think any UVC open source can easily work") I assume that it means Linux-UVC ( www.ideasonboard.org/uvc ) does not work.
So one has to write a driver to stream (or pay $600 or $700), unfortunate :(
I think it is worth to try this UVC driver, but don't know what job has to be done based on that.
Unfortunately I don't have the board, I am an individual so it's a bit of money if I am not sure if it will work.
If you or anyone else with the 5MP camera can test the Linux UVC driver it I would be glad.
I thought i had read the driver was open sourced now, or at least a binary driver was provided freely, does it means you can't do for example:
gst-launch v4l2src ! x264enc byte_stream=true ! fdsink > video.mp4 ?
