Droidcam and deps compiled in OE

April 26, 2022 — BarryK

I introduced Droidcam earlier today:

I have compiled two dependencies in OpenEmbedded, 'libplist' and 'libusbmuxd', as well as the userland executable for 'droidcam'.

The executable is 'droidcam-cli' and I intend to include it in the upcoming Easy 3.4.7. Running 'droidcam-cli --help' shows the commandline options, and we can play with it in a terminal, and see if can get it working with phones. Might have to load the module first, and start adb:

# modprobe v4l2loopback-dc
# adb start-server

'adb' is for talking with Android phones, but Droidcam is also supposed to work with iphones.

There is some documentation in the source package on how to get it working.

Then, perhaps whip up a little GUI wrapper.
