Sony RXO over USB
Trying to stream Sony RXO to QGC over micro USB, Microhard sees it but no stream?
Hi @Matt-Goddard ,
I hadn't seen that camera before, pretty slick! I'm looking at this for reference.
I'm not positive if is supports a UVC interface (e.g. webcam)? If so we can stream off that to QGC. For example, here
It doesn't show mini-HDMI connector. We have an HDMI input adapter that could be used possibly and then we can stream video off. For example, here
@modaltb Thanks for the response! So we can get it to trigger, and we have got it to work with Sonys webcam software separately!. It says it is streaming, but we can not receive video like it's sending empty data. Libg Photo 2 is reading the camera and recognizes it, but can't pull the video up in QGC or any other video source. It's just one of those things we have been spending a ton of time on scratching our heads, knowing there is something small we are missing haha! First time using VOXL and Modem..which I must say is absolutely amazing, we want to switch our fleet over to this system.
Hi @Matt-Goddard, I understand that you are using QGC, are you able to get telemetry through to QGC? If so, are you doing that over WiFi or Microhard?
It looks like you are successfully getting frames off of the camera, so I'm wondering if there is a networking issue.
Yes, Tom we are getting full telem using the Microhard through QGC, also have used WiFi. Yes, that was odd to me as well?
@Matt-Goddard Okay, so I assume you are using
voxl-vision-px4to talk with QGC then. You will want to point
voxl-libgphoto2to the IP address of your ground station on the Microhard network, which would be the same IP address that you are sending
Right now it seems as though your
voxl-libgphoto2is attempting to send video to QGC over WiFi, when in reality you are connected to QGC over Microhard.
So, instead of using
voxl-libgphoto2 192.168.1.215, you will want to use the same IP address as you are for
voxl-vision-px4, which you can find using
ifconfigon your ground station or should be in
voxl-vision-px4's config file:
/etc/modalai/voxl-vision-px4.conf. All Microhard IPs will be in the form

@tom This is something we have done already
Are you able to open the video stream with a different program like VLC or ffplay?
We have tried VLC with both Linux and Windows, appears to load it with no video stream.
@tom is the VOXL streamer apk required in order to use the gphoto2 to stream video?
@Matt-Goddard We have two different implementations for gphoto2 on VOXL.
voxl-libgphoto2which is what you are using and we also have
voxl-gphoto2which is a newer version that also uses
voxl-streamer. I think I will have you try
Here is the link to the build/install instructions for the newer gphoto2 implementation.
Here is a link to the documentation
I will try this now and get back to you. Thanks!
During the process, we managed to brick the board. Will not boot now..
Got it, we will order the part and unbrick lol. Thanks for the help!
