Hi, I need to use something like ardrone-autonomy node to control a Parrot ar drone 2.0 and at the same time have full access to the drone's 5555 port in order to feed a v4l2 virtual device. In detail I need to be able to control the drone by using a ROS node (I don't need video or navdata) and at the same time connect to the 5555 port by ffmpeg (using the line ffmpeg -i tcp:// -f v4l2 /dev/video0). Is there any way to do this? If I try to launch the ardrone-autonomy node and the ffmpeg command at the same time, both the ffmpeg video and the ardrone/front/image_raw topic do not work. I am trying to convert the image received by the drone's image topic and feed the v4l2 device by Gstreamer but it is very complicated and I am wondering if there is a simpler method. Thanks! Andre
