Thanks for paying attention to this issue.

     Hardware and software

  1. Snapdragon 801
  2. Opencv 3.2.0
  3. PX4
  4. snap_cam(

I have modified the snap_cam to access the front camera and giving that frame to opencv.

After processing the frame i want to stream that processed frame to a client througth RTSP server. I want to create a local rtsp server with snap_cam library. qcamvid is also streaming the video through rtsp i want to create something similar. Please provide me the information/alternative about library to stream(rtsp) the frames, which i can use in my snap_cam lib( c++ ). That would be a great help.

Thanks in advance for help.

I am not an expert on this, but we use gstreamer on Snapdragon Flight boards to run an RTSP server.  More information on gstreamer is available here:

To install gstreamer on target, the usual "sudo apt-get install" commands should work.
