UnitV2 - Stream Video to AWS

  • Hi,

    I would like to use the m5 UnitV2 to stream video data directly to a service using an SDK from amazon AWS., which uses the Gstreamer plugin. However, it appears that with Buildroot (the Linux distribution installed on the V2), it is Not possible to download packages via apt-get or user Docker.

    Is the V2 even suited to stream video directly to a custom source?
    And if yes, could provide me with resources or docs too see how exactly that can be achieved?

    This is the SDK I would need to install on the v2 unit: https://github.com/awslabs/amazon-kinesis-video-streams-producer-sdk-cpp

    Kind Regards

    I've been looking into this too. I've used this C++ producer in RPi setups. In looking at the specs of the UnitV2, I'm guessing you'd run out of RAM to use this C++ producer and get it to AWS Kinesis. Did you try to build it on the V2?

    Let me know if you figure out a way to do it, as I'd like to do the same. I'll let you know if I do.
