How were your results? meaning, was the video near realtime and the
resolution high? Again, this is h.264 camera which works quite different
from MJPEG. I will give it a shot and at the very least it will give me a
bench mark to run against.
Anybody have FFMPEG experience with decoding a live h.264 stream on a
mobile phone? Be nice to hear something on that topic.
Thanks again Gudmunder for your response!
