Interfacing with wireshark disectors live


Being able to use wireshark dissectors for protocol debugging is an indispensable tool. When developing transceiver or MAC layer communications it would be a great help to feed data directly into wireshark as a live stream.

This sounds like a great idea
@dg your links are sadly broken.

I've looked at wireshark and it seems to have quite limited lew-level-embedded support, but lots of higher level protocols including USB and (obviously) TCP...

More information about your use case(s) would be super helpful here! What traffic are you recording that you would like to feed to wireshark?

"When developing transceiver or MAC layer communications" - what protocol layers specifically are involved here, that wireshark supports? Do you envision that Saleae decodes a packets as essentially bit-fields, and then feeds those into wireshark?
