Here's the exact cut and pasted command lines that I am using in case you can see any difference

Well, if I use this line, the camera red led does not turn on and the program quits without error avec a few second.
The difference between your line of command and the one I mentioned is the little "–" after the "-o".
In my case its a – (EN DASH), in yours its a - (HYPHEN-MINUS).
And I thought, linux was just more (and only more) case sensitive than other OS's...
But this is just just super tricky to me.
Anyway, I believe the – (EN DASH) is right. But even then... no streaming for me.
Sooo... I finally got to solve my problem. And I-was-wrong by stating "Anyway, I believe the – (EN DASH) is right."...
Here is the complete story of what happened (in cas of another noob like me is going crazy) :
The article "Camera board available for sale!
" gives the following code to activate the streaming option :
"raspivid -t 999999 -o – | nc [insert the IP address of the client] 5001
For me, on OSX (do not know if its the same on other os's...), the minus after the -o is a "EN DASH"... And if I copy/paste this exact command, (which I religiously did for the pas 4 days), the streaming won't work.
Fbutler gave me the right command :
Code: Select all
raspivid -t 999999 -o - | nc 192.168.1.87 5001
But, I assumed this was wrong because as I launched it before launching the recieving command on the ... receiver ... it didn't worked and, as I stated : "the camera red led does not turn on and the program quits without error after a few seconds".
SO, thank you Fbutler, you where right to insist.
PLEASE, admin, correct the command line on the frontpage or please explain to me what this – (EN DASH) is doing there.
And now, I will go an sit in front of my TV to stare at the stream of my beloved new toy.
