Running the evaluation application
Once Linux boots you'll see on the HDMI monitor the Linux desktop and on the top left corner a shortcut to the script named video_cfg.sh. Double clicking on the icon will start the media-ctl configuration script. The script is running in background without any pop ups.
After the script was executed once, one should double click on Qt V4L2 test Utility icon to start the video capture application. A window like bellow should open and the play button should be pressed to start the capture.
The capture window should look like bellow.
