OPi Lite (possibly other ARM architecture) USB video streaming

Post by WarHawk »

Got a cheapo SQ11 camera recorder/webcam working on my OPi Lite (on a custom armbian stretch DIETPI_PREP script rebuild)

Downloaded and compiled a program called cam2web and what do you know it works!

https://www.codeproject.com/Articles/11 ... PEG-stream
https://github.com/cvsandbox/cam2web

apparently it should work with almost all USB webcams and even the RPi camera

Here is a link to my binary and the tarballed up compile directory if you want to check it

I generates it's own webserver, and all I had to do is simply plug in the link to the images in the timelapse blocks and viola...it just worked..first try...no tweaking, coding, fiddling...

Check it out..might be another way for folks to have cameras on their builds with non-standard devices
