I have the Raspberry camera module, and I try to get the following setup to stream live video to a website:
<video width="640" height="480" controls autoplay> <source src="stream.node" type="video/mp4"> </video>
Then, I use
raspivid to stream to that node:
raspivid -t 999999 -o stream.node -w 640 -h 480
stream.node is a named pipe:
$ ls -la prw-r--r-- 1 pi pi 0 May 2 05:06 stream.node
The problem is,
raspivids exits as soon as the browser opens the page with the
video tag in it.
I see many solutions using all kinds of extra software, but I reckoned this should work as well. But apparently not. Am I missing something, or on a complete wrong path (if so, why?).
