Raspberry Pi 3 Webcam

Raspberry Pi 3 Webcam

Upgraded the raspberry pi to the new version 3, which is still a great value bit of kit for side projects.

I updated my process for installing MJPEG Streamer as well compiling from latest decent source.

# soup to nuts, mjpeg-streamer-experimental
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade -y
sudo apt-get install -y libjpeg8-dev imagemagick build-essential git

# cmake bits
wget http://www.cmake.org/files/v3.2/cmake-3.2.3.tar.gz
tar -xvf cmake-3.2.3.tar.gz
cd cmake-3.2.3
sudo make install
git clone https://github.com/jacksonliam/mjpg-streamer.git
cd mjpg-streamer/mjpg-streamer-experimental
sudo make install

mjpg_streamer -o "~/mjpg-streamer/mjpg-streamer-experimental/output_http.so -  ~/mjpg-streamer/mjpg-streamer-experimental/www" -i "~/mjpg-streamer/mjpg-streamer-experimental/input_uvc.so -d /dev/video0 -f 25 -r 640x480"

Resultant webcam is (sometimes) here.
