First of all, you need to connect the Camera Module and enable it. To do this, run
and select Enable Camera Module. For more information, may I suggest reading the first section of this article.
To stream video from the Camera Module, we are going to use the preview function of
raspivid. Simply type the following command:
raspivid -f -k
This will show the preview window in fullscreen (
-f) mode. The window will not exit until you press x followed by Enter.
You can also specify the location and size of the preview stream by using the
raspivid -f -k -p x,y,width,height
raspivid -f -k -p 100,100,400,200
