I tried to install mjpg-streamer(experimental) in pi. But I don't know what to do after the following command. This remains a lot of time. If I tried to kill it shows errors for next command.

pi@raspberrypi ~/mjpg-streamer/mjpg-streamer-experimental $ ./mjpg_streamer -o "output_http.so -w ./www"
MJPG Streamer Version: svn rev: 
 o: www-folder-path...: ./www/
 o: HTTP TCP port.....: 8080
 o: username:password.: disabled
 o: commands..........: enabled

What can I do next?

    How did you successfully build it? I always run into a Segmentation fault when I run make

Those messages are good news, it means it is working and waiting for a connection on port 8080. Use your browser on any other machine, go to the IP address op the Raspberry Pi like this:


and you should be presented with a page where you can switch to streaming video, or snapshots.

  • Hi, it is not working. I got message from vlc media player as :-Your input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL ''.
