We have been trying all week to create a two-way, live audio/video link such as in a video chat or conference. This will be a permanent installation so are hoping for a permanent (or semi-permanent) two way live feed between two raspberry pis's.
We have tried a number of different tutorials published throughout the years and was hoping for some advice seeing we are deep in the rabbit hole and have lost our way. We are looking from the simplest solution with the least latency.
uv4l seems complicated. does it require using webrtc? we don't really want to view on a webpage or through a webpage. just a straight one-to-one av connection. is this possible? how might we do this?
ffmpeg piped from raspivid was our first choice but ffmpeg is NOT included in apt and must be compiled? i saw precompiled versions but what one?
avconv had a tutorial but in the comments no one said it worked for them.
Suggestions? Thanks for tips!
