player.camera

This small daemon is a fork of the AOSP goldfish emulator camera service, to split it into a client and a server who talk over TCP, instead of qemu sockets which we cannot use.

It needs an additional adaptation of the sources on the VM side in order to work.

The goal of this fork is to provide a ffmpeg-backed camera that can play any kind of video file as a camera input, instead of webcams like the android emulator does. It switches files by listening to remote commands on an AMQP server.

Building

Building this software requires a working C compiler, glib-2.0, rabbitmq-c, and pthreads.

make

Running

This dæmon requires several env variables to be set:

Variable Usage
AIC_PLAYER_VM_HOST IP address of the android machine
AIC_PLAYER_VM_ID Virtual machine identifier
AIC_PLAYER_AMQP_HOST AMQP host IP
AIC_PLAYER_AMQP_USERNAME Username for AMQP
AIC_PLAYER_AMQP_PASSWORD Password for AMQP

Updating the base sources

While clang-format was used on the sources, a special care was given to not touch at all the biggest chunks of code from AOSP in order to easily diff the new changes.
