H246 Video encoding

Looking for a simple way to decode h246 encoded videos? The video is sent via udp from a dji Tello?

For sure I mean h264. Just a typo ;->

I think you mean h264? If you have been searching everywhere for h246 that will have caused you problems…


Hi Jeremy,

indeed h264. But no progress so far.
It work like a charm on Raspberry PI using GLVIDEO. But on Windows using the VIDEO library I don’t make any progress. I can read the stream, but I have no clue how to convert and showup.

jcodec may help, but again how to convert picture (jcodec) into a format that Processing can work with.

Any help/hint is much appreciated.
And to make more complex I tried that on Raspberry X86 where according my information only Version 1.0.2 of the Video library is working.

You want to expand your search in the JAVA realm as this is not unique to Processing. If you find a solution coded in Java, you should be able to use it in Processing. Unfortunately there is not much from previous posts:

Happy New Year!

It is supported by GLVideo from Jörg Haider. But performance on Raspberry is slow.

  // we connect to Tello via this custom GStreamer pipeline
  video = new GLVideo(this, "udpsrc port=11111 ! decodebin", GLVideo.NO_SYNC);

But that didn’t work on other platforms like Apple or Windows.

No I’m able to receive the stream from Tello, but I have no idea how to decode and convert into PImage. My Plan is to implement this on a system with better performance.
