Can I pick your brains please. :)
I'm trying to work out what technology to use;
Mobile Linux computer connected via 3G/GPRS to internet.
The computer is likely to encounter fluctuating connectivity where it
connectivity drops between low GPRS signal, full HDPSA signal and
I'm trying to find a technology to stream [live] video from a V4L2
device to 'the internet' over the able connection. The connection only
needs to be one way.
Ideally I need to work out something that makes a 'best effort'
judgement based on the amount/quality of bandwidth available and and
streams the best picture it can. Eg. Where loads of bandwidth is
available, there is a nice picture and where there isn't, there isn't a
nice picture, but there isn't nothing.
Does anything like this exist?
Ideally something I can pull the video out in something resembling a
sane format would be cool.
Bonus points if it's easily scriptable...
