WebRTC on the Moverio BT-300

bt-300-webrtc-1Since the BT-300 is an Android device, I thought it would be fun to try out WebRTC on it using the Android WebRTC sample here. Right now it’s WebRTC everything chez richard so this was a natural thing to test on the BT-300.

It worked just fine. The screen capture above shows the browser display from a desktop running Chrome. I am looking at the display hence the funky effect. The photo below is an attempt to show what it looks like in the BT-300.

I must stress that the real quality of the image on the BT-300 is vastly superior to how it looks here – it’s really tricky to get any sort of photo in fact.

Building the Android sample takes a long time – in fact downloading the code takes for ever as it is about 16G of download! One extra point is that, after the gsync line, it is necessary to enter:

build/install-build-deps-android.sh

in order to get all the prerequisites installed. Apart from that, everything was straightforward.
