I have never used a Rasberry Pi before. I did do a fair bit of searching for several days though, and could only find tutorials on how to stream webcam video through the internet, and not just simply pushing the video out through HDMI. I know that "technically" what I want the Pi to do it should be able to handle. A data transfer rate of 12 megabits a second is required for 720p video (assuming thats at 24fps since the article I got that from is talking about Bluray movies) and the Pi zero can process data at a few megaBYTES a second.
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install guvcview
Did you ever get this project off the ground? I would love to pitch in.jumpman95 wrote: ↑Thu Oct 25, 2018 4:53 pm(BUDGET $50-$250)
I'm looking for someone who would be willing to write a simple webcam viewer software that automatically runs when a Pi zero (V1.3) is powered on. I am aware of programs such as "motion" but I am not interested in sending video through the internet, or taking pictures on a timer. I want to plug in a UVC capable device, and send the video feed through HDMI. I have a link to my project page on freelancer that provides further information. (Please note; I am not looking to sell, or market this software in any way. It is intended for my own personal use, though I would like to share it to this forum and others, making it freely available to anyone who would like to use it once it has been made. Full credit for the work would be attributed to whoever wrote the program.)

Raspivid only works with the Raspberry Pi camera modules, not USB webcams.
