  • How To Live Stream A USB Webcam On a Raspberry PI 2

    Posted on May 19th, 2015 Seppy 15 comments

    The EEVblog Lab had a HD Dropcam so that people could watch what was happening live in the lab. It worked well enough, but then Dropcam changed their terms and conditions and wanted to merge with Nest (who bought them). This was bothering Dave so the search for an alternative began.

    Surprising, there are very few options on the market that:
    a) Allow low frame rates in order to reduce upload bandwidth (The lab ISP has a monthly bandwidth cap)
    b) Are low enough power and work completely autonomously
    c) Don’t cost an arm and a leg
    d) Provide the ability to embed the stream into a public website so people could watch without having to go another site.

    We had spare Logitech webcams (UVC ones should work fine, H264) which were  that would provide good image performance, so it was simply a matter of finding a hardware and software solution to match. A Logitech C905 was used in the final solution even though we had better C920’s, they will be saved for use as the live show cameras.
