Re: My Camera arrived today... what now?

When I started a stream to Windows the lag was about a second in the beginning but was reduced later to almost zero. What can help is use the mouse wheel in MPlayer to change the lag, strange as this may seem. but which way? When I used the mouse wheel, it made it more laggy. So are you telling me ...

Re: My Camera arrived today... what now?

I followed the instructions to get the video stream working between the raspicam and my Windows PC. It seemed to always be delayed... How can I make it LIVE / Real-time?

Re: Getting Streaming working to a PC

However, I've found that if I turn the mouse wheel towards me the time between movement in real life a...

Re: Finding new planets using the Pi

Just a word of precaution - it will be very, very slow on the Raspberry due to it's low SD speed (~4MB/s). Like an order of magnitude slower than on any PC with an IDE/SATA HD. Granted, but may as well use it as not. Wonder if you're basing the SD card speed on the OS transfer on to it initially? I...

Finding new planets using the Pi

Hi guys. I'm not using my Pi for much at the moment so have decided to use its processor cycles to hunt for new planets. Not wanting to re-invent the wheel I just wondered if anyone is doing this already? (not seen any news/blogs/topics on it so far though....). My idea is of a minimalist OS so that...

Re: Image stabilisation

I see that with YouTube there is an option to provide image stabilisation on your vid after it's been uploaded. It does it by using a slightly smaller area of your vid so that the stabilisation has room to move around - it's pretty good. So what I'm saying is that the Pi will be able to do it with t...

Re: Alternative Operating Systems for the Pi

My take on OSs that some haven't tried: OpenElec (it's a media centre) - great, it works without problems. iPlayer and YouTube easily added as add-ons and they run without glitches. Stick with the default desktop though. Autoupgrades on bootup. Raspbmc (it too is a media centre) - much work needed w...

Note from Dr Matthew J Seaman re. converting pkg to pkgng using pkg2ng: Beware that running pkg2ng converts your system to use pkgng.
