Detailed Description

A carrier for receiving frames compressed in h264 over rtp.

This carrier uses gstreamer libraries (libgstreamer1.0-dev and libgstreamer-plugins-base1.0-dev) to read rtp packets and to decode the h264 stream.

Use this carrier in the following way:

  • suppose there is a server that streams video frames to IP x.x.x.x and to port p: register this port to yarp by yarp command "yarp name register" in this way: yarp name register /serverH264Stream h264 x.x.x.x p
  • you need to connect your client port (for example /yarpview/img:i ) to /serverH264Stream port by h264 carrier to get the video stream: yarp connect /serverH264Stream /yarpview/img:i h264 You can comfigure the carrier to cro frames by passing parameters to the carrier with usual syntax: +pramName.paramValue:
    • +cropLeft.100 ==> the carrier crops 100 pxel from left side
    • +cropRight.100 ==> the carrier crops 100 pxel from right side
    • +cropTop.100 ==> the carrier crops 100 pxel from top side
    • +cropBottom.100 ==> the carrier crops 100 pxel from bottom side
    • +verbose.1 ==> enables verbose mode (default is not verbose) (+verbose.0 disables it.)

std::string H264Carrier::getBootstrapCarrierName ( ) const
overridevirtual

Get the name of the carrier that should be used prior to handshaking, if a port is registered with this carrier as its default carrier.

Normally, this should be "tcp".

For carriers intended to interoperate with foreign ports not capable of initiating streams, the bootstrap carrier name should be left blank. YARP may use that fact to arrange for alternate methods of initiating a stream.

Returns
the name of the bootstrap carrier.

Reimplemented from yarp::os::Carrier.

Definition at line 216 of file H264Carrier.cpp.

◆ getHeader()

void H264Carrier::getHeader ( Bytes header) const
overridevirtual

Provide 8 bytes describing this connection sufficiently to allow the other side of a connection to select it.

◆ handleEnvelope()

void H264Carrier::handleEnvelope ( const std::string &  envelope)
overridevirtual

Carriers that do not distinguish data from administrative headers (i.e.

canEscape returns false), can overload this method to handle the envelope inside the stream. On the receiving side, the InputStream will have to overload the yarp::os::InputStream::setReadEnvelopeCallback method, and execute the callback as soon as the envelope is ready.

Parameters
envelopethe envelope to transmit bundled with data.

Reimplemented from yarp::os::Carrier.

Definition at line 54 of file H264Carrier.cpp.

◆ isActive()

bool H264Carrier::isActive ( ) const

Returns
true if carrier is connectionless

Implements yarp::os::Carrier.

Definition at line 29 of file H264Carrier.cpp.

Definition at line 69 of file H264Carrier.cpp.

◆ isPush()

bool H264Carrier::isPush ( ) const
overridevirtual

Check if carrier is "push" or "pull" style.

Push means that the side that initiates a connection is also the one that will sending of data or commands. All native YARP connections are like this. A "pull" style is equivalent to automatically sending a "reverse connection" port command at the start of the connection.

Returns
