ROS web video

On Kinetic Ubuntu 16.04

git clone

There are some deprecation warnings but builds

rosrun web_video_server web_video_server

Then browse to

Works in android chrome app (didn’t work in android browser or opera, though opera may have been out of date), doesn’t seem like too much latency.

Any way to wrap the html to be able to full-screen the video?


How to get the web video server to serve my html- do I have to fork it, or is it easier than that? Looks like it needs to be changed to allow other html in- maybe load a giant prefix/postfix parameter for everything that goes before and after the stream image.
