I am new here and just starting the process of putting together OpenROV based ROV. I am planning on using GoPro as a camera instead of webcam. Reason being that I want to get 4K footage (not over tether of course) and since it is possible to get video out of GoPro over either composite or HDMI, I thought it might be worth while to test it.
First question: Has someone done so already and how exactly? BeagleBone of course doesn't have input for those, but things like Sabrent USB Video/Audio capture card should work on Linux as well. So I was thinking that it should be feasible to use image from Sabrent card instead of webcam.
I know it would be simpler to just have webcam handle the image to surface and carry GoPro just as a payload, but since it is there, you might as well us it. Plus low light vision should be significantly better.
