and http://www.vivadatv.org//viewtopic.php?f=75&t=297 for the SD card image.
I have tested it and it worked first time, It is H264 of course so you will need a DVB-S2 RX.
I used my Comag SL100HD as my Tutioune system was receiving ISS signals at the time!
Many thanks to Evariste F5OEO for sharing this.

The PI Camera module apparently connects directly to the GPU encoder so there is no CPU overhead, with a usb webcam it goes to the GPU encoder via the CPU which is too much processing in real time.
I've used gstreamer and omxh264enc to generate a h264 stream from a videotestsrc but it cannot do that in real time, 5fps with 320x240 is > 100% cpu usage.
Camera module appears to be required unless someone else has any tips?
I have to order hardware to test it.

The webcam i tested was made by Phillips, unknown model, I420 format video at 640x480 res.
I think the gstreamer command was like this:
gst-launch-1.0 -v v4l2src device=/dev/video0 ! "video/x-raw,width=640,height=480,framerate=25/1" ! omxh264enc ! "video/x-h264,width=640,height=480,framerate=25/1" ! filesink location=test.mp4
I've downloaded the image and written it to the SD card with win32diskimager. I've installed the RPi camera and plugged in the DigiLite.
When I boot, I get the usual stream of messages, which stops after 5 seconds and does not give a prompt.
If I hit ENTER, I get a (initramfs) prompt, but there appears to be no way to log in. I think I've seen this with the MK808 when something wasn't right.
Can anyone help please.
I had a similar thing on an Android device and that was a problem with the screen resolution.
The log in was there, but I just couldn't see it!
Hopefully the experts will have some ideas.
Possibly there was a write error when creating the sdcard? maybe try another card..
Or maybe the image file was corrupted during download..
that's my best guess!
After some fun with the French keyboard, I can key in the commands to start transmission, but it says it can't find the camera. I've run raspi-config and enabled the camera and rebooted, but no luck. Raspistill can't find it either. I've got the NoIR version of the camera coming on Monday, so I'll be able to tell if it's a camera problem.
Did have a problem once, which turned out to be the small on-board plug and socket that comes from the ccd/lens assy
re-seated it and was fine after that.
