This guide describes how to write a stream to the HDMI port.
Writing video data to the HDMI port is done with the Framebuffer publication service. After creating a channel in Restreamer, you can add the Framebuffer publication service. This publication services require that at least one framebuffer device is availbale on your system.
A framebuffer device is located in /dev with the name fb*, where * is a number usually starting from 0.
The framebuffer device might only show up as soon a display is connected.
In order to have these devices available in the Restreamer Docker container, you have to start the container with the --privileged option.
Raspberry Pi 4
On a Raspberry Pi 4 we recommend to install Raspbian "bullseye" in order to enable the framebuffer device /dev/fb0.
You have to edit the /boot/config.txt in order to set the correct resolution:
Open /boot/config.txt in an editor, e.g. sudo nano /boot/config.txt
Set hdmi_mode=4 (for 1280x720) or hdmi_mode=16 (for 1920x1080)
At the bottom in the [pi4] section, set dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d
Reboot the Pi and the docker container. Now you should see the Framebuffer publication service, where you select the /dev/fb0 device and the matching color settings (usually RGB565 Little Endian).
