Efforts to unpack, change the port and repack the CGO app will be acceptable with regards to the added value. But from another point of view, if this application will not do some measurements, VLC is more than enough.
The problem with these cameras is the price. They are very expensive, in regards to the quality of the image presented. The same camera for iPhone or Android device, with the same sensor now (let say thank you Covid!), is around 100 EUR on the second-hand market. A doubled size IR sensor is 100 EUR too. So, 1000+ EUR for a CGO-ET is nonsense.
