Newb here, I am flying with Quad and just got my basic FPV gear from RangeVideo. My question is about suggestions for software to view the video output on my Windows 7 laptop.
I have an AVERMEDIA EZMaker 7 USB thingy, and it comes with software for making DVD movies.. But the actual viewing screen is pretty small, most everything else is taken up by the recording options with no way to resize that. So that software is pretty useless for this purpose.
Does anyone know of a free video viewer software, that I could simply display the incoming video?
I'm assuming you are using the ArduPilotMega board... have you tried the Mission Planner (available here: http://code.google.com/p/ardupilot-mega/downloads/list) ?
On the configuration tab under the Planner sub-tab you can use the video signal as the background for the HUD. The HUD is resizable.
Yes, using the Ardumega 1.4 board/brain. I had no idea the Mission Planner allows me to display actual video signal within it! I will look at that tonight.
You can double click in the HUD and detach it from the rest of the mission planner.
When you open mission planner click configuration at top left. You will see Arduplane, Arducopter, Planner, Setup. Click Planner and select you device. Pretty cool:)

Its gonna happen! Thanks a lot for all the input.
I also found out that I can view through the VLC media player software. That works too.
I have the same problem, all that shows up is the "Cyberlink Web camera filter", nothing else, not sure how to get my camera to show up. I put it in the "camera tab" in " Flight planner'
