Author Topic: Use of Android Player with HDMI IN port to capture video from HDMI source  (Read 4158 times)

Hi Everybody,
Has anyone tried to use an android player with HDMI IN port to capture an HDMI source and show it on a division?
If so, please let me know how you did it.

Otherwise, I wish to add some code on the signage player source code available on the Github to do so through the camera component of any other component.  I have the Java code used in the player that allows capturing de video from the HDMI IN port.  I'll be happy if someone can help.

I have other questions: Do I have to have an enterprise account to do development? The available source code on Github is 6 years old, is it the latest version available or is there any new version?

Thanks in advance.

to do custom component development, you would need enterprise subscription.  we have not heard from anyone who has done direct feed from HDMI In of android devices. this would be more of an android development than signage player component development.

the source codes are there as new features come out.  those that are under development would have more recent while those that has been since established would be older.

best regards
