Streaming Bebop 2 Video by Parrot to VLC on Mac High Sierra

I tested this on a fresh Mac (High Sierra 10.13.3) and it worked great. However, since the Parrot drones only allow one connection to the drone at a time you will not be able to control the drone while viewing the video. You could use it for auto flying via flight plans though.

Step 1: Install Brew:

Press Command+Space and type Terminal and press enter/return key.

Run this command in your Terminal app:

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL" < /dev/null 2> /dev/null

and press enter/return key and wait for the command to finish.

Step 2: Install Required Tools:

Run this command in terminal:

brew install repo bash coreutils gettext pkg-config wget make automake libtool ffmpeg autoreconf libavutil

Step 3: Install the Parrot SDK

Run these commands in terminal in order one at a time, note that this will download the SDK and compile it into whatever current directory/folder you are in. You might want to create a Bebop2 folder and run these commands from there first.

repo init -u -b refs/tags/ARSDK3_version_3_9_0 -m release.xml

repo sync

./ -p arsdk-native -t build-sdk -j

This will take a few minutes, if all went well you should get this final message:

[I] Finished task 'build-sdk'

You should now be able to follow the rest of the steps starting at “Download the application note” here:

Good luck!
