There are many open source efforts that run on desktop Linux that have been ported to the BeagleBoard. You can see many here. One effort is GStreamer a library for constructing graphs of media-handling components, or more simply, a open source multimedia framework.

Here are some audio and video demos based on a RidgeRun talk at ESC.

Getting Started

  • Get the updated files from the git repository
beagle$ git clone git@github.com:MarkAYoder/BeagleBoard-exercises.git exercises

or if you've already git'ted them, make sure you have the most up to date versions.

beagle$ cd exercises
beagle$ git pull

Audio Demos

There are several scripts that show what GStreamer can do. They all begin with a'.

beagle$ cd gstreamer
beagle$ ./a2

Go try all the audio files. Make a note (1 or 2 sentences max) about what each one is showing.

a5 is an audio through demo. I've set it up to take input from the PS EYE mikes, but I don't hear anything coming out. Can you make it work? Don't take more that 5 minutes.

Video Demos

The files beginning with v are video demos.

  1. Try them and make a note about what each does.
  2. v5 is video through, so you'll need the PS EYE. Use gst-inspect to learn what v4l2src can do. Modify v5 to use a image that half the size.
  3. v6 and v7
