Transcoding of webcam output on the fly RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to get frames at 30fps from arbitrary webcams and pass them for the following processing.

    I found that there is a lot of formats in different cameras from different vendors.

    In several cases that YUY2 could be directly transcoded to RGB32 by DSP in several not, but DSP never could transcode it to RGB24. There are also several compressed formats that I can do nothing about.

    My processing can get frames in YuY2 or in RGB24.

    The question is : may be it's better to connect the transcode node to capture source  and always to ask for RGB24 from that transcode node ? Will it work smooth ? Is that right approach ?

    P.S. I'm wondering how that API stands, there is a catastrophic lack of samples and documentation and it's so counter-intuitive.
