I'm a beginner user. My goal is to stream low-latency dual cameras to pc, and then record&save the videos.

Using the Compute Module & IO Board, I have done this: https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/hardware/computemodule/cmio-camera.md

I tested with raspistill -cs 0 & raspistill -cs 1 , and I know both cam 0&1 works.

So now, how do I turn on both cameras simultaneously?

Reading this: How can I stream H.264 video from the Raspberry Pi camera module via a web server? It seems like Raspberry Pi Cam Web interface & U4VL are the two available streaming solutions.

And looking at the UV4L dual camera example, it seems like you will need to use 2 different formats (H264&mjpeg) to start 2 separate streams? http://www.linux-projects.org/uv4l/tutorials/dual-cameras/

I'm not sure if Raspberry Pi Cam Web interface support dual camera stream, but it seems like the UV4L is the ultimate answer?

    Use the stereoscopic option in whatever you're using to access the camera (e.g. --stereo with raspivid, the stereo_mode option in the PiCamera constructor, and presumably some command line switch with uv4l). This will output a single stream with the output of each camera arranged side-by-side or top-and-bottom (depending on other options). – Dave Jones Feb 20 '17 at 9:46
