I’m working with @smac Steve Macenski and the Nav group on a VSLAM ROS 2 demo, where we’re going to try to run VSLAM with a mono IP RTSP camera.
I noticed the video_stream_opencv ROS 1 package under the ros-drivers jurisdiction. The package seems like a good fit as the front end to capture and publish the camera images to the VSLAM node.
Some questions wrt video_steam_opencv:
Is the video_stream_opencv package still being supported, the best option for RTSP camera capture image stream publishing? Or is there another package being maintained?
If video_stream_opencv is the best candidate, any efforts to port ROS 2 underway?
If not, I’m happy to attempt the ROS 2 port - should I create a ROS 2 port issue, fork the repo, then make a PR request against that issue? Or is there another protocol I should follow?
