I am starting my plan for adding a video down-link to my quad copter and I have a question regarding the video input to the laptop. From everything I have seen so far it looks like most people use some type of USB video capture card for importing the live video into the mission planner. Is there any way to use an IP video source? I have access to an Axis video to Ethernet converter and would like to bring in the video that way. So my questions are:
1. Is it possible to use an IP based video source?
2. Are there any USB capture boards that are known to work out of the box?
