Questions about video streaming...
I am working with VOXL1 Flight Deck.
The VOXL Streamer documentation says I can use hardware acceleration to encode multiple h264 streams simultaneously. Is there a maximum?
Is HW acceleration used regardless of the interface? If I have a USB camera (using voxl-uvc-server) will voxl-streamer still use hardware acceleration?
@Ed-Sutter Yes, voxl-streamer will always use HW acceleration for h264 encoding. There is a limit but I'm not sure what it is. I have streamed multiple cameras in the past and it was able to keep up just fine but I don't have any actual spec numbers on that. It is a pretty powerful hardware accelerator.
@Eric-Katzfey Ok, I don't know what we need yet, but I'm gonna see if I can run all 5 cameras with HW-accelerated H264... I'll post results.
Different question... I am trying to build voxl-camera-server, so far without success. Referring to install_build_deps.sh, I've tried both
./install_build_deps.sh apq8096 sdk-1.0
./install_build_deps.sh apq8096 dev
Which is preferred (or is there a different) option? Which is the "stable" version?
@Eric-Katzfey One more question to add to the last reply...
I just noticed that there is an apq8096-camera-server repository. What is the difference between that and voxl-camera-server?

@Ed-Sutter Thanks! Always better to start a new thread for a different question.
