Programming GPIO output current

I see that the output current of the GPIO pins is programmable, up to 16ma.

So, is it required to actually program the pins output-current to 16ma to get that much out?????

Possible to program GPIO pullup/down from shell or python?

I see the C example of programming the GPIO pins with pullup/pulldown, and I see python and shell examples of programming GPIO pins as input and output. Is it possible to programm the GPIO pins pullup/pulldown from either python or shell? I don't see any documentation or examples of that particular ...

Re: packages you want to see in raspbian

thttpd small webserver, perfect for a Pi. Depends on your definition of "perfect", I heard nginx is the best performing on the Pi though probablly not the smallest. thttpd was removed from debian for being "RC-buggy for nearly a year, orphaned since 2.5 years, dead upstream (last release in 2007) a...

Re: Real-time webcam streaming tutorial

I tried it. It works, but is not really usable. The video is very choppy and delayed. Even if I put -nocache, it still has a delay of several seconds and the video is choppy regardless of the cache. The source is only sending 320x240 resolution. I've tried setting the source device to 5 fps and to 3...

Re: So frusterating! Won't boot past Rasberry Logo

Not the cables. I've actually fixed it! (Hopefully permanently). I took a heat gun and heated up both sides of the board so it was super hot. The idea that it would reflow any bad connections. Once it cooled down, it boots fine, even while handeling it and wiggling the connectors and card!!! Of cour...

Re: So frusterating! Won't boot past Rasberry Logo

Ah, here's something: 3rd card. Works fine. In shell, I reboot, it comes back fine. I do this 4 or 5 times times, it always reboots fine. Then, I reboot and while it's booting, I pickup the card and just move it around some. It stops booting, hangs, and now I can't get it to boot at all. It just han...

Re: So frusterating! Won't boot past Rasberry Logo

I have a USB keyboard, but I've tried many times without it plugged in. Just the yellow video cable and power supply. As for list of known working cards... no, but as it always boots the first time and seems to run properly, then obviously the card does work with it. The 2 cards i've tried are Sandi...

Re: Real-time webcam streaming tutorial

Can VLC be installed with a simple apt-get install vlc on Raspberry Pi?

I don't know if VLC will run the video if it's MJPEG very well, as there is no support for that codec on the Pi.

Video Input Card?

Here's what I'm wanting to accomplish: Using 2 Raspberry Pi's on a network to stream video/audio from one to the other. Basically, Pi + Network + Pi = Virtual AV Cable. Pi "A" would have an audio/video input capture USB device. It would send that over the network to another Pi (Pi B) Pi "B" would ou...

Re: Real-time webcam streaming tutorial

That is GREAT!!! But, I would like to stream mjpeg TO the Raspberry Pi. For example, I have security cameras that send mjpeg over the network, and I would like to connect the RaspberryPi to my TV and watch the stream that way.

Any ideas???
