EDGE video stream without QGC

Dear Guiboy,
i wish to get an videostream directly from my EMLID Edge system, i don´t wanna use the QGroundControl Software for this purpose.
I´m newbie in this procedure, can you help me, what i need to get it work?

Many thanks in advance!

Dear Guiboy, do you mean, it exists an method for using the videostream from the EMLID Edge autopilot without QGroundcontrol? Can you tell me please how exactly it works?
What i must do to get an video signal in VLC?
Thank you very much!

Hi Fred,

Sorry for the delayed reply.

To configure video streaming without QGC, you can ssh to Edge and follow steps from this guide. For Edge, you should use raspivid -cs 0.

Also, I’d recommend looking thought other threads for more related information.

Thank you very much.
Do you have experience with this method?
Does it works by you?
Sorry, but i´m a newbie wit ssh…
Actually i had installed putty on my windows notebook…

Hi Fred,

I reproduced steps described for Navio2 and can confirm that streaming works as expected on Edge.

Try to follow the steps beginning from this section.

After doing steps for Windows, you should connect to Edge via ssh by typing ssh pi@edge.local in the Windows command line. The password is raspberry.

Then, you should use raspivid -cs 0 and type the streaming command, specifying the IP address of your PC.

Dear Gleb,

Thank you very much!

Hi @rcdevil,

May I ask you to describe your problem in this thread, so we can help you out? Also, it would be useful for other users who might face the same issue.

Dear Svetlana,

i wanna access the videostream without QGround Control and i need a exact description how this can be maked.
At first i had installed the gstreamer for windows.
My OS is Win 10 professional.
Step 2: i opened the command in windows and pasted this:
gst-launch-1.0 -v udpsrc port=5600 caps=“application/x-rtp, media=(string)video, clock-rate=(int)90000, encoding-name=(string)H264” ! rtph264depay ! avdec_h264 ! videoconvert ! autovideosink sync=f

But here i get an error message.
Maybe i understood something wrong.
Where and how exactly i must type this command?
Thank you very much!

I have now managed to get into the terminal via SSH.
Then I entered the command:
gst-launch-1.0 -v udpsrc port = 5600 caps = “application / x-rtp, media = (string) video, clock-rate = (int) 90000, encoding-name = (string) H264”! rtph264depay! avdec_h264! video converter! autovideosink sync = f

Then unfortunately an error message appears, see screenshot.
What am I doing wrong?
How can i access the video stream in example with VLC media player.
It would be better if EMLID can post an simple step by step instruction.
Thank you advance!

Dear Gleb, that is what i have reached, see the screenshot.
How i must proceed further?
Thank you very much.
