About

The rovio_av package contains nodes and launch files that can be used to stream video and play sounds on the Rovio. Additionally, included in the rovio_av package is a selection of .wav files that have been converted to 8000 Hz 16 bit PCM (the native format for the Rovio). These files are conversions from Willow Garage's Robot Sound Libraries. These sounds can then be sent to the Rovio via a service call and played on its internal speakers.
