streaming Video from DJI Drone

Post by ogaere »

Has anybody done live streaming of video from DJI drones? Am trying to figure out to get the video to display in RVMedia. DJI only supports RTMP.

As far as I know, FFmpeg can decode RTMP streams, so, if you use FFmpeg with RVMedia, you can simply assign RTMP stream URL to RVCamera1.URL, and then call RVCamera1.PlayVideoStream.

RVCamera1.DeviceType may be equal to rvdtRTSP or rvdtHTTP.

I tried and after about 30 seconds it stopped streaming. I tried both devicetypes and i get the same issue. Must be something I am doing wrong.

Any ideas, even though VLC is streaming the video from DJI Mavic 2 Pro.

Unfortunately, it's hard to tell why streaming stops without access to the stream.
You can try to play this stream using ffplay.exe utility from FFmpeg. Does it stop playing too?
