Set up Amazon Kinesis Video Streams Producer SDK C++ (Cloud9)

In this step, we will install Amazon Kinesis Video Streams Producer SDK C++ on your Raspberry Pi

Downloading the SDK

Execute the following commands in the Raspberry Pi terminal.

cd
git clone --recursive https://github.com/awslabs/amazon-kinesis-video-streams-producer-sdk-cpp.git

If you forgot to add --recursive to the command, execute the following command.

cd ~/amazon-kinesis-video-streams-producer-sdk-cpp
git submodule update --init

Building the SDK

This step will take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete. You may proceed “Creating a Stream” and “Downloading the video for playback” steps of 1-3-b while you are waiting.

The following command downloads and builds the dependent libraries. This command will take about 10 minutes to complete.

mkdir -p ~/amazon-kinesis-video-streams-producer-sdk-cpp/build
cd ~/amazon-kinesis-video-streams-producer-sdk-cpp/build
cmake -DBUILD_GSTREAMER_PLUGIN=ON ..

Then run the following command to build the SDK, which will take about several minutes.

make

Now that you have set up Amazon Kinesis Video Streams Producer SDK C++, let’s run the sample application.
