nanocomputers and electronic television

Postby Lowtone » Thu Aug 03, 2017 9:55 am

Hello,

I've experimented on electronic televsion those last few years. Vcr, old cameras etc…
With friends we made a web-tv that uses old technology from 1980.

I seen on this forum that some of you do experiments with raspberry pi & co, so maybe you can help me.

When we did a live transmission on youtube, i wanted to display this on an old tv set.
But this didn't work.

I own an intel megoo pad, wich runs on win8.1 and outputs with hdmi.
But when trying to fix the ratio at 576×720 i had no picture that was recognizible by my hdmi-to-pal converter.

So i tried with a raspberry pi2, but the web browser was unable to display html5 videos
(and take note that i do not like debian/linux interfaces, my mind is Windows molded )
I used the analog output, this part went well, but only pre recorded videos were functioning, not live video.

Do exists, a small computer or device, that runs on Windows, or can display html5 video, while having a PAL output ?

If you want to stream something from YouTube to an old television, id use a chromecast, connected to a standard converter if needed, which is then connected to a RF modulator, if the standard converter doesnt have one built in. After that, its just hooking the RF modulator to the television with whatever devices are required, such as baluns.
John Logie Baird was obviously the man who sowed the seeds but did not reap the harvest.

It's linux yes. "raspbian"

No need for modulator, the tv have SCART.
There were problems to display live video from youtube, because now it's in html5, and all the browsers have not implemented that yet.
Chromium does the job
