B3 as a security camera streamer ?

Post by Clive » 14 Oct 2020, 15:49

I have been using Raspberry PI's around my place to setup security and webcam streaming. One place I would like to monitor is close to my B3. However I discovered that the kernel on the B3 does not have the modules loaded to support USB video cameras.

Anyone solved this ?

Ironically the RPi's are so temperamental and seem to crash if you look at them the wrong way.... My B3 is just so stable, year after year....

EDIT: I asked the exact same question in 2007 :lol: http://forum.excito.com/viewtopic.php?f ... p=651#p651 Doesn't time fly... :wink:

I can build a kernel with video modules that you could test. If that's successful I'll push to to the official repo. Let me know !

Thanks ! But I will try to build my own. I am just tinkering and this is a good way to learn :-)
