Using 8MP camera - lots Solved

Sun May 15, 2016 6:22 pm

Now this camera is Brilliant but for a newbie to it I was lost !

Here is what I found:-

To get a well behaved recording I did this:-

raspivid -o video1.h264 -t 10000 -hf -fps 30

and a well behaved 10 second video clip was gained in the /home/pi/ directory

But MP4 is a more conventional recording format.

On Windows MP4Box is used aok to do the conversion ! But on Linux this is needed first:-

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install -y gpac

then this does the conversion

MP4Box -fps 30 -add video1.h264 video1.mp4

And lo it appears next to the clip !

For newbies 'ls' will list all the files in the directory.


Sort of related, such a camera needs explaining and here is a clue:
