Javascript/JSON/HTML5/websocket browser on i.MX6?

A customer running i.MX6 with a recent NXP Yocto build is asking for a browser with the following features:

1) https support
2) websocket compatibility with linux libwebsockets
3) json and javascript support
4) HTML5 support


The purpose is to stream a video to a 800x480 LCD from  a camera providing MJPEG or from rstp server providing MPEG3 or MJPEG streams.


Our i.MX6 platform supports Linux Framebuffer. No X11, no Wayland.


As far as I understand, this should be a QtWebkit or QtWebengine browser.

Putting aside a possible performance issues, the questions are:

- if there are some out-of-the-box working examples with the above feature available in Yocto Qt?

- If not, could someone please outline amount of work needed to bring up the above capabilities using these examples as a starting point?
