I tried GStreamer but it was not getting installed as its dependency repo link which we place in source.list was outdated. I tried mjpg-stream but it kept saying that I don't have a camera connected and its module installed. So I switched to motion and it is working but is choppy.

I am using an i-ball ROBOK20 web camera to do live streaming using motion in Raspberry PI 4 4GB RAM variant.

I have followed this instruction to create a streaming server. But the live feed is choppy. How can I stream without any choppiness?

  • Please add your motion configuration file /etc/motion/motion.conf to the question. – M. Rostami Feb 6 '20 at 15:23

Solved the choppiness by changing the stream_maxrate from 1 to 30 and disabling not needing things.

  • Yes, you can increase the number up to "100" but if you configured this for internet connection, the fewer number is better. – M. Rostami Feb 19 '20 at 17:35
