Good morning from Sunny OZ,
I have a project that I am starting and there are a couple of things that I would love to get some guidance on if you would be so kind.
Whilst swimming at a beach in Mare I discovered at the bottom of the sea a camera - I thought it was a go-pro but it turns out to be a knock off.
The camera records to a SD card and you can put it into WIFI mode where if I connect via my MAC it brings up (enumerates?) the SD Card as a drive.
There is no display screen on the camera - which is where the project starts.
I have a SSD1351 128x128 OLED which I will put on the photon which I would like to use for ‘playback’
The project would initialise and await the user to push a button. This would disconnect from the normal house wifi (if connected) and connect to the camera (Problem 1 - how could I get to see the drive? - Is this a standard wifi protocol?)
Assuming I can see the drive, I would probably take a fork of SDfat and hack it to process the spanking new drive, and display on the OLED the actual filenames.
Selecting a file would then open the file , decode the mpeg video and reduce the frame(s) to 128/128 and push them to the oled (dunno if I can get them out fast enough for real-time - That may be the showstopper problem).
At the conclusion of viewing the file, would go back to the menu and allow the user to push a button to disconnect from the camera and reconnect to the normal wifi.
Simplistically, I would like to get a display of what has been recorded like a camera with an inbuilt screen.
The main issue as mentioned above is - how after connecting to WIFI can I see the drive - has anyone anything to offer here?
All the best
