We are using a Phytec board with NXP i.MX6 running embedded Linux:
The board also has an Atheros AR9462 WIFI chip, and we are configuring it as a WIFI router/AP.
We would like to try running Miracast source on the same chip, in a Linux container. One implementation could be the user connecting to the system via a web site, selecting a URL, and the WIFI router will then use Miracast to display the streaming video to a (separate) Miracast sink.
I noticed on one post from a couple of years ago that someone said NXP only supports Miracast sink, not source:
But another post from a year ago talks about issues with Miracast source:
So my questions are:
- Does NXP provide a Miracast source software for the i.MX6?
- If yes, where can I download it from?
- If not, can someone recommend another vendor or open source implementation other than Miraclecast? (We will be looking at Miraclecast, but there seem to be some issues with that.)
