playerv requires the GTK+-2.0 development libraries and headers.
$ playerv [-h <hostname>] [-p <port>] [-pull <0|1>] [--<device>:<index>] [--<device>:<index>] ...
$ playerv --position:0 --sonar:0
$ playerv -h foo -p 7000
If pull is set to 1, it will set the server's replace rule to true, and only deliver data when a read is requested. This is sometimes useful on slow connections or with slow computers that cannot keep up.
When playerv starts, a window will pop up. Click and drag with the left mouse button to pan the window. Click and drag with the right mouse buttom to zoom the window. These are the same controls as Stage 1.3.x.
Use the "Devices" menu to control device subscriptions. For devices that can be teleoperated via playerv, click the "Command" item in the submenu for that device. See below for how to teleoperate different kinds of devices.
The "View" menu offers options for changing the look of the display.
The "File" menu offers options for dumping JPG and PPM screenshots and making MPEG movies (to make movies, you must have enabled movie support when building librtk).
playerv provides teleoperation of the following kinds of devices:
- position2d : In velocity mode (the default), click and drag with the left mouse button to set desired velocity vector (this will only work if the underlying driver supports velocity control; most position drivers do). In position mode (select "Position mode" from the device's submenu), click and drag with the left mouse button to set a position target (this will only work if the underlying driver support position control; vfh is one example).
- ptz : Click and drag the green circle to pan and zoom; click and drag the blue circle to tilt.
