Help capturing MJPG

  • Hi guys, this is my first time using rasperypi for ambilight purposes

    I've been playing around a lot with the previous hyperion, now I'm on hyperion ng using the hyperian image baked on raspberry pi 1

    First I was using a HDMI2AV module + a video grabber AV to USB, but the resolution on YUYV was very low compared to the MJPG one.

    Now I have purchased an HDMI capturer which comes with higher resolutions, but still the one on MJPG comes with way more fps.

    I was wondering if there's any way to force the MJPG format, in previous hyperion I was able to modify the resolution by using a prestart command on the service, but in hyperian ng everything gets overwritten everytime I start the service.

    I tried modifying the `hyperion-v4l2` and `v4l2-ctl`, I have no idea about their differences to be honest don't know which one is used in which case, I tried both, `hyperion-v4l2` doesn't support MJPG and `v4l2-ctl` doesn't seem to persist as its reseted after service starts.

    I'm checking the current value with `v4l2-ctl --get-fmt-video` and setting the value with `sudo v4l2-ctl --set-fmt-video=width=1920,height=1080,pixelformat=MJPG`

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    PS: sorry for the probable wrong prefix on the thread

    I've the same problem: HDMI-Grabber with Loop Out: MJPG only.

    (on a Pi Zero - everything directly connected -- FireTV-->HDMI_Loop_Grapper-->TV )

    already searched the internet/forums and read a post from 2017 that 'gstreamer' can help. whatever it takes, can this be enabled ??

    (I am on Hyperbian 2.0.0 alpha 9)
