Hi everyone !
I’m totally new in working with the BBB Rev.C. To get more familiar with this dev board, I would like to make a nice project with it.
It may be a little bit complex, but I have a lot of time to do it, and as it uses a lot of parts of the BBB I think it’s nice to start with it even if it’s gonna be tough ^^
Basically, I would like to make a small device that is kind of a surveillance camera, so I would like to stream the video. I would like to stream it on a custom app for Android that I will make. For the camera I’m still hesitating betweek a classic USB webcam (720p @30fps but I can go slightly lower) or a camera that can be plugged on the GPIO ports (I saw some of them for the Raspberry Pi).
But I would like it to be able to record the video while it’s streaming. I think this will be the harder part as I will have to really optimize the code to get decent results.
And for the bonus, I would like the camera to start streaming after you have pressed a button.
I know it’s very similar to what a lot of people have done (for the streaming part), but I didn’t find anything that looks close to my request, recording & streaming at the same time.
I don’t know if it’s the right board to do it, maybe you know some better hardware to do it ?
Do you have any idea for the recording/streaming process ? I don’t know openCV will make it…
Thanks a lot in advance for every answer this post will receive
