You can stream video from an AWS DeepLens camera over wi-fi. To do this on Windows, first, get mplayer from here:
Then, determine the IP address of your DeepLens camera, enable SSH, and ssh in once once to avoid this:
The authenticity of host '192.168.1.187 (192.168.1.187)' can't be established. ECDSA key fingerprint is SHA256:sbKJiQl8IjGJ+X/hWekzBK8CxR/gCHR6qJfsq6JYHZY. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
You can then run the following commands to stream the video – the first command is the video before the ML algorithm hits it, and the second is after. If you don’t have SSH keys set up, you will be prompted for a password. The password prompt is rendered in the midst of the mplayer output, which can be a bit confusing.
To stop this, copy a key:
ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa email@example.com
Once you authenticate, it will take a few seconds to catch up, and spits out a lot of errors while this happens. For me, the video is also ~5 seconds behind.
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org cat /opt/awscam/out/ch1_out.h264 | /d/software/mplayer/mplayer.exe -xy 800 –demuxer lavf -cache 8092 - ssh aws_cam@$ip_address cat /tmp/\*results.mjpeg | /d/software/mplayer/mplayer.exe –demuxer lavf -cache 8092 -lavfdopts format=mjpeg:probesize=32 -
