Audio streaming

By Francesco @francescot2021-05-14 01:51:52.350Z

Hello, I installed the tinypilot and so far it's been great.
I use it to remote control a work laptop at the office from home.
I was wondering if there is a way to stream the audio/microphone so that I would be able to also take calls from the work laptop.
Thank you!

    It's theoretically possible, but it's not something I'm likely to add in the short term. It would be a significant amount of work to add that, and it's not a critical feature for many users. I'm also not sure if we'd ever be able to get performance to a level where it's usable for voice calls. If there's a 200ms delay on audio, that would make it hard to have a conversation.

    That said, they just came out with an improved version of the HDMI capture chip that TinyPilot uses, and it captures audio, so I'm planning to explore the audio capture side of this.
