Can Sikuli read a screen capture video or jpg image?

Is it possible to use a screen capture device between the Device Under Test and its display? Eg. The device might be a game controller, ATM machine, a test instrument, etc. that I can't run code on. The device has an HDMI output and the display is similar to a standard resolution monitor.

Is so are there certain models of screen capture devices that are known to work?

Not a feature.

SikuliX can only capture pixel content from a screen attached to the PC that SikuliX is running on (Java AWT robot).

JPEG images as such can be used as base images to search in (class Finder).

If you have a capture device, that can be programmatically accessed and delivers shot images, then there might be a chance to script/program it. Be aware, that you might get into timing problems if traction time is a challenge.

Can you help with this problem?
