of course the pi will pick up remote streams, like the android with the webcam app. My security cams are accessible from a browser and I can view streams in midori or iceweasel on the pi. Using it as an input device to crunch & encode...? not so much...

Re: multiple webcam streamer

I do security cameras as a side business and deal with computer dvr's. The old Pico2000 capture cards had a single chip splitting 30fps by 4 inputs for 7fps (halty & jerky). even with it's own video processor (BT878chip) you'd want a minimum of a 1.4 ghz machine and 512mb ram. USB bandwith is even w...

Re: Need good place to blog about project

besides wordpress and blogger , you can self-host using less "pignacious" applications like serendipity , chyrp and various other small footprint blogwares. My pi hosts an apache webserver, mysql, ircd-hybrid7 (with a flashpolicy server) and serendipity blog---http://dktucson.dyndns.info:86 with the...

Re: What can I do with it?

just for fun I dug out an old sparc ultra5 from the garage and loaded Aurora Linux, apache, mysql,php4 and also have a webserver on that--with a blog and a copy of a css /xhtml site http://dktucson.dyndns.info .

Re: home made lexan case based on punnet

Ok... 1. after configuring the vncserver on the pi--setting screen res, password etc you will need to run ifconfig from terminal and make note of the pi's IP address 2. Go to your Router's setup page and you should have port forwarding/gaming applications. Forward port 5900 to the pi's IP address. 3...

Re: VNC Server to Boot on Logged In User

The beauty of starting a VNC server at boot is so the pi can be run in "headless" mode with no monitor, keyboard or mouse physically attached to it. If you get wireless to work now all you have is the 5v power connector--no more "spaghetti pi" of wires going everywhere . The pi is more stable with f...

I used the punnet layout glued to lexan , then cut & dremeled. The wood bracings are old chopsticks cemented & then panels screwed in place. It's setup "headless" with just a wifi-fob and power cord---accessible via a VNC server that starts at bootImage

This is where you absolutely need a monitor for the initial boots to see if you are getting any kernel panics etc. I used an SD card for my first go-round that had voltage issues.

When I first got my Pi (before headless VNC setup) I was using a SIIG HDMI to DVD-D cable---stock numbers on the siig packaging APC1142x CB-HDMO11-S1. It worked an IBM/Lenovo flatscreen just fine going to the dvi interface on the monitor. I have not tried a VGA adapter to use an older display.
