I've been researching on how to get my RPi video output to show up on my laptop. Space requirements dictates that using an external monitor is extremely cumbersome, and since I'm not using my home network, setting up an ssh and remote desktop, while doable, is unstable and a pain to deal with.
Everything that I'm reading says that you cant input an HDMI signal into an HDMI out, but it doesn't take a genius to figure that out. I'm wondering if there's a device that can take the HDMI signal from the Pi and have my computer interpret it as something like a webcam input.
I have found that people are using capture cards to take HDMI from a camera and use it for a facecam while on live streams, but every resource that I'm reading is suggesting $150 hardware that is "4k 60 fps capable" which is extreme overkill. Anybody who asks about cheaper hardware is told that it is bad and won't last long.
I don't need anything with a high res or low latency, I just need something that works.
