Re: video online facebook

This is of interest to me too. I would like to take a USB camera and stream it along with audio from a Raspberry to Facebook. I literally started looking at this 24 hours ago so I will need to investigate further.

Re: Linux kernel is now 4.0

I just took the plunge upgrading from 3.18.16 to 4.0.5. So far no observed problems. I am running an HP HD-2200 webcam and an RTL2832U SDR dongle for monitoring aircraft ADS-B traffic. All came up without any issues. I do have two different WiFi dongles I need to test out at some point but so far my...

Re: MJPG stream is not working with kernel 3.18

There is no need for a kernel update. This is nothing wrong with the kernel and the bug report that had been filed for the kernel is now closed. Apps that are patched to properly work with the "bytesused" data behave correctly.

Re: MJPG stream is not working with kernel 3.18

I tested the second patch and it works too. No performance issues. I only modified one of my three Raspberry's and I'll let it run for some time to see how it goes before updating the other two.

Re: MJPG stream is not working with kernel 3.18

The patch works like a charm! I am now running 3.18.5_v7+ with the patch installed and mjpg_streamer is working in MJPEG mode. It was a simple matter of doing these steps: 1) cd mjpg-streamer 2) Saved patch as "input_uvc_patch" 3) patch -p0 < input_uvc_patch 4) make clean 5) make Did an rpi-update t...

Re: MJPG stream is not working with kernel 3.18

Wow, you are not kidding! I just checked and it was hovering at 90%. Back to 3.12.36 and MJPEG.

Re: MJPG stream is not working with kernel 3.18

I re-updated one of my Raspberry's to 3.18.5+ and changed the input_uvc.so setting to "-y". The USB camera works now. I am curious if there is a downside to using YUYV versus MJPEG. I am going to leave just this one Raspberry updated and leave the rest at 3.12.36+.

Re: MJPG stream is not working with kernel 3.18

I had been investigating this problem for two weeks now after having upgraded to 3.18.3, and subsequently 3.18.4, and seeing mjpg_streamer sending me nothing but blank screens on three of my Raspberry's. I was able to downgrade them all back to 3.12.36 using "rpi-update 6413da9f74871b239c5bd27d7edf9...
