Introduction

The RDK Media Streamer is much more than a multi-format, multi-protocol server that delivers your media rich content across multiple screens and platforms. The RDK camera software runs on RPi-0 device. This page dedicated to bringing up and validation of RMS functionality in R-Pi Zero. 

Required Equipment

  • Raspberry Pi 0 Device
  • SD Card
  • Power Cable
  • OTG Cable
  • Standard USB keyboard
  • Mini HDMI connector
  • HDMI Cable
  • Television set/monitor with HDMI input

Yocto Build Steps

Code Block
languagebash
titleBuild steps
$ repo init -u "https://code.rdkcentral.com/r/manifests" -m rdkc-nosrc.xml -b rdk-next
$ repo sync
$ source meta-cmf-raspberrypi/setup-environment
	select meta-cmf-raspberrypi/conf/machine/raspberrypi0-rdk-camera.conf
$ bitbake rdk-generic-camera-image

Image Flash Procedure

Code Block
languagebash
titleImage Flash step
$ sudo dd if="Image Name" of="Device Name" bs=4M

Example:
sudo dd if=rdk-generic-camera-image_default_20200130060729.rootfs.rpi-sdimg of=/dev/sdb bs=4M


RMS Validation Procedure

STEP 1:

Add require SSID and PSK in /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf file in below format

network={

ssid="username"

psk="password"

}

Code Block
languagebash
titleConsole output
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
update_config=1

network={
ssid="RDK"
psk="Comcast1"
}


STEP 2:

Reboot the Target

After Reboot don't do step 1 and 2.

Note : Step 1 & 2 is only applicable for fresh target boot-up with new image.


STEP 3:

Modify needed resolution in rms configuration file

Supported Resolution:

SD:

Width - 640 , Height - 480

Width - 720 , Height - 576

HD:

Width - 1280 , Height - 720

FULL HD  :

Width - 1920 , Height - 1080


Modify resolution in below configuration file

cd /usr/local/rms/bin

vi rms.conf

Code Block
languagebash
titleConsole output
RRSIP=18.224.54.11
RRSPORT=81
ROOMID=rpi0
RRSSSL=0
WIDTH=1280
HEIGHT=72

After resolution modification need to reboot the target.

Note: This step is not necessary,it is depends on your resolution validation.


STEP 4:

WiFi connection is must needed for RMS validation.

Check WiFi connection by using below command.

ifconfig

Code Block
languagebash
titleConsole output
root@raspberrypi0-rdk-camera:~# ifconfig

STEP 5:

check loaded module by using below command

lsmod

Code Block
languagebash

STEP 6:

check camera device there or not by using below command

ls /dev/video0

Code Block
languagebash
titleConsole output
root@raspberrypi0-rdk-camera:~# ls /dev/video0 
/dev/video0


STEP 7:
