Project smart projection system

Fri Mar 27, 2015 7:55 am

I am Pravin. I am working in a project called Smart Projection System where I am using raspberry pi . I would like stream videos from my PC to PI through internet. Which server will be helpful for me to stream data over internet, how to control the pi through internet.

1. Set up SSH (SSH host is already installed on basically all RasPi images, you just need a client. I use my tablet)
2. Set up VNC: http://elinux.org/RPi_VNC_Server
3. Now, you need to make your RPi hold a static local IP: http://www.modmypi.com/blog/tutorial-ho ... ip-address
4. Now the router. You need to open UDP and TCP ports for RPi's IP you set up above.
These are the ports you need to open:
SSH: 22
VNC: 5900

5. Now, test the connection by remotely accessing your Pi from your Internet IP (www.whatismyip.com)

Done!

This is just basics, if you need some more advanced stuff, I can't help ya, I'm a newb. Sorry :/

VNC is not suited to stream video. It's already clunky over a LAN for desktop usage, so imagine what it might do to video over internet.

I know, I'm a dunce. I just answered the question regarding some basic control over the Internet.

I have no idea which server would be reliable to stream video to Pi.
