Console to Sync Arduino & VLCCustom Software for Drone & Video Project
- OS: Windows (Tested on Windows-8)
- Server Side Language: Python, Batch Script
This app synchronizes Arduino with VLC Media Player for a Drone. Arduino Sketch sends commands to the Operating System which then is handled by a Python Script. If Arduino gives the command “play_video” or “exit” then this command is written in buffer via port.
A python script listens on that particular port to which Arduino is connected. After a valid command is encountered by the python script, it takes appropriate action (to either play the media file using VLC or to exit the program).
The app automatically plays video using VLC after Arduino.
