Video recording from usb camera on pi3

Sun Oct 20, 2019 11:47 pm

Hi,

I've been using ffmpeg to record video from a uv4l stream however the frame rate never exceeds 17fps.

I'm new to this. Any help would be appreciated. Is there any other software available for doing this? I'm trying to get 30fps video recording in h264.

Thanks

That should be easy, but I noticed using Sony PS Eyecams at 640x480 recording to USB at the same time had issues.
Are you recording to uSD or USB?
