MIPI CSI2 to USB Video

I'm doing a hobby project where I feed an IMX219 into an FPGA, and do basic debayering and computer vision transforms on it. I'm at the point now where I want to get video output out of the FPGA, but I am unsure of how to do that.

 

I would prefer USB Camera output if possible so it can act as a webcam.

Re: MIPI CSI2 to USB Video

I intend to, but I'd prefer something also usable by just v4l2/uvc if possible.

Dear @carbotaniuman

 
Do your board having HDMI connector ?
PG232 has example design for MIPI - HDMI output application.

Re: MIPI CSI2 to USB Video

Sadly I do not. And I need to stream these images over the network anyways so I can't really do that.

 

I'm wondering if there's a way I can stuff converted frames back into MIPI for something to consume it. I don't necessarily need USB video, but I would really like to be able to put it in a Gstreamer pipeline for testing
