How UAV::Pilot got Real Time Video, or: So, Would You Like to Write a Perl Media Player?

We don't usually do video decoding in Perl, but if you're not afraid of getting into xs and a little C code, it's all perfectly do-able. In fact, one of the reasons I wanted to take on the UAV::Pilot project is because I figured it would push me out of my comfort zone and force me to do things like this. C and xs are not as scary as people think they are, and they can open up things in Perl that are otherwise infeasible.

See my blog for the whole story.


UAV::Pilot is what technology? By UAV::Pilot, what can we do? I want to know.

You can fly an unmanned aerial vehicle - i.e. a remote controlled helicopter.

It is interesting that Perl controll helicopter.
