Also see ar-drone-png-stream.


browser live stream from your Parrot AR Drone 2.0.

This is a proof of concept implementation using ffmpeg and ffserver and a mjpeg live stream.

You need a recent version of ffmpeg (together with ffserver) installed.

Known to work is ffmpeg 0.11.1.git-1ad63ff (ffmpeg-devel from macports).

Install via Github to get the latest version:

npm install -g git://

Launch the server:


... and then open index.html in a recent browser (firefox, chrome, opera).


  • implement more stream types (HLS!)

  • experiment with different encodings, bitrates and other ffserver settings

  • check whether webm endocing has improved with ffmpeg 1.0
