Received my raspberry pi yesterday. and i am now playing with it and doing some tests.
I am using usb webcam as the rpi camera board is out of stock and i am waiting eagerly to buy it.
my question is :
How can i record video on the raspberry pi's sd card from usb webcam ?
I have successfully attached the usb web-camera to rpi and my pi can detect it, tried installing motion and pi can stream using mjpeg to Firefox too.
but i couldn't find any command to record the video from webcam on the sd card .
is this possible ?
i am using iBall Web Camera C 8.0 .
my pi can detect it a "Bus 001 Device 012: ID 0c45:6340 Microdia"
what i am trying to do is record a clip and upload using ftp/samba.
Thanks for your time and input.
i tried avconv and it gave some errors. then i added the usb power hub to power the webcam , then i fired the same command
Code: Select all
avconv -f video4linux2 -i /dev/video0 video0.avi
