mjpg-streamer streaming to the internet

Sat Sep 14, 2013 8:16 am

Hey Community,

I have a little problem in streaming a live video to the internet with mjpg-streamer.
I want to stream from the RPi to the Internet so i can watch the stream on a separate PC.
The problem is that I want to stream via the Internet on my mobile and it is not local anymore.

How to stream with mobile internet to something allowing me to watch from an other PC.

Thank you very much,

You have two main options, either run the MJPG server on the Pi and have your network set up to route traffic to the Pi on whatever port you want to use.
Or have the Pi upload images to a server and the server is the MJPG streaming server, this method reduces the bandwidth needed to run multiple streams from the Pi and also allows you to do things like recording the stream without having to worry about SD card space/reliability.
