Methods of Video Streaming

  • motion


I pursued the mjpg-streamer approach, and wound up using mjpg-streamer-experimental from github user:jacksonliam Other downloads from subversion and other sources did not seem to make a certain file on my raspi. Note that this version includes raspicam input plugin (based on raspistill mmal source code). This is excellent if you are using the raspicam accesory.

The directions are in the README.md section of the webpage.

This software includes a minimal http server so the image can be viewed through a web browser, with

The following can be saved as a file on the desktop, and then the file can be made executable:

# title
# run-raspicam-stream 
cd /usr/local/src/mjpg-streamer-master/mjpg-streamer-experimental
./mjpg_streamer -i "input_raspicam.so" -o "output_http.so -w ./www/"

Once this is set, when you click to open the file, you will have the choice to execute the file.
