HDMI to UVC (USB Webcam) and Vice Versa

Jump to solution

Is there a way to convert a live HDMI stream and output a USB Video Class (UVC) output so a PC can see the stream from within Skype or some other webcam type application? How about the other way around? Connect a webcam to an Xlinx FPGA and convert it to HDMI for display on a large screen monitor? 4K@30 resolutions right now but possibly 4K@60 later?

Hi phil@pswitchers.com

Yes.

You can accomplish what you want to do on Linux running GStreamer.

 

>Does it support UVC so one doesn't require special drivers when connecting the USB to a Windows based PC?

 

I don't have enough knowlegment about UVC.

But, I guess you can achieve it by using v4l2 driver and media-ctl command on Linux.

 

Best regards,

Thank you, Watari.

So, is the idea to create a instance of Linux running GStreamer to accomplish the content conversion?  Does it support UVC so one doesn't require special drivers when connecting the USB to a Windows based PC?

My research seems to confirm you feelings about the V4L2 driver solution.

Thank you so much for your responses.
