Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<pyshell#1>", line 1, in <module>

Re: How to make a webcam

Thank you so much. Well, my webcam is up and running in my office right now so I know it works with your very well explained post. I still have a lot to learn and shell scripts and php are totally alien to me. But I'll keep trying. I have a question: How do I stop this webcam process?

Re: How to make a webcam

Re: camera rotation

Hi, thanks for reply. My apologies, I didn't mean the raspi-config. I was just wondering if I can change and save the camera rotation (and other parameters as well) so that when I shoot using raspistill -o image.jpg the image is flipped 180 degrees always. The only way I can rotate the image is typi...

camera rotation

Hi, I am trying to edit and save the camera rotation but do not know how to edit the raspistill config file. Excuse my lack of knowledge here but am a real begginer. I have tried to edit using sudo nano raspistill but I get an empty looking file.
