I've got a v4l2loopback running on the Raspberry Pi and I can access the stream using MPlayer directly on the Raspberry Pi. However, I'd like to connect the Raspberry Pi to my Windows PC to access the videostream (not necessarily the complete X server) e.g. using VLC.
I don't know if this can be done. Here are my ideas:
- I'd to use the ethernet port to connect my RPI and my Windows PC and stream either the video stream directly (/dev/video0) or the complete video output (everything that's visible using the HDMI port). Is that possible?
- If not, is it possible to use a USB connection from the Raspberry Pi to my PC and have the RPI identify itself as webcam, so that I can use the basic webcam drivers from Windows to access the video output?
Or are there any other smart ways to do it?
