Hi there,

I've put together a small program call raspberry_pi_camera_streamer, for a robot project, which should do what you want. It uses a modified version of the http server code from mjpg-streamer used in that tutorial so once you've built it, and start it running, it should work with the rest of the tutorial. The only slight issue is that by default it serves on port 8080 so you'd need to change the line in your HTML file to

The bitbucket repository gives instructions for building and running the program, but let me know if you have any problems.

hey alan,
thanks a lot for that camera streamer. it helped me a lot.
is there a way to execute the start of the streamer via a python script. and also to turn it off?
i want to add 2 buttons to my WebIOPi to tun the camera on and off.

thanks a lot.
