I’ve seen some chatter on H.264 here and elsewhere, and as our team now has a reliable method of creating a stream, I thought I’d share blog post I wrote on the theme:
On a less lyrical note, any teams considering switching streaming protocols (or are curious as to why you may want to) should find this oversized blog post at least marginally insightful and/or useful. Or rather, I hope it proves marginally insight/use-ful. As a mild warning, the solution we settled on requires some technical talent (you’ll be compiling some C code and installing libraries if you follow along). If you’re lucky enough to be competing at championships and happen to be bored, perhaps you’ll be inspired to start a new programming project.
If your team has also developed or found great resources on setting up H.264 on your bot, I’d love to hear about and link to them.
