My SD card is having limited size and I just want to stream a video so that I can use it as webcam. I successfully did that but problem is it is slow because it keeps saving files as well as does streaming. I donr want to save video files but just stream live in port 8081. Or is there any alternate streaming app for raspberry pi. I am using Camera v1 on Raspberry Pi zero.

  • Could you set the output file name to /dev/null so it goes nowhere?

  • But i think the process will still run athough it may not be able to save.

  • But the data is not written to the SD card so it may be quicker.
