I am planning on building my ROV with the main control systems and power onboard. Originally, I had planned on running some form of web server on the Arduino or Raspberry Pi and accessing it from my computer. If I do that, I would have to remove a few wires to run the analog video signal to the surface.

Is there a way to run a website on a Pi and input RCA video to it, which could be seen on my laptop using a direct connection to it?

I would then receive inputs from buttons pressed on the site, which would send commands to an Arduino to run the motor controllers.

Would that be possible? Would that be almost the simplest way?

Thanks

I just started messing with Raspberry Pi's so I'm a total noob but have a look at the Bluerobotics stuff they are using Pi's in their Rov's you might be able to get some ideas from them.

Possible, sure... if you have the skills or the time to master/learn them.

Some have gone this path, Shameless plug of my software/setup https://github.com/Moki38/Moki-ROV2

The easier path is the BlueRobotics path (ardusub), just buy what you need.

Some cameras have there own webserver "inside", in that case you can plug that a frame of your PI webpage and you are up and runing. Or connect to two webpages from the top side computer so lag from feed one does not harm feed two directly.
