Ethernet camera data reading into Jetson TX1


Is it possible to read a video stream from an Ethernet camera connected to a host ubuntu machine into Jetson TX1?

I need to capture video from a GigE (Ethernet camera) into Jetson TX1 and do some pre-processing and use that video stream in my deep learning application. But as the application itself has some overhead, would it be feasible to connect the camera to a host ubuntu pc, capture the stream, preprocess and then read it into Jetson TX1?

Any inputs or pointers to solutions would be greatly appreciated.


Hi BharatS,

A similar use case has been discussed, but it’s to read it into host Ubuntu PC.

Hey Bharat,

Were you able to stream your ethernet camera to the tx1? If so, how?
