I am about to embark on my first experience with Rasb Pi and I want to utilize the code from this blog on how to stream motion JPEG thru a Python Flask server, Flask Video Streaming Revisited. The blog is written to use with Rasb Pi camera or OpenCV.
Some super basic questions I have... I ordered a Raspberry Pi 3 - Model B+ - 1.4GHz Cortex-A53 with 1GB RAM and I think it has a built in Wi-Fi... Does the Flask server code live on the Rasb Pi device and I would need to configure a Wi-Fi router between the Pi device and a computer/smart phone accessing the Rasb Pi through a web browser?
Ultimately I am hoping to find a simple method to view the Pi camera in a video stream format through multiple devices (smart phone) and I think this seems like the best option to use a Wi-Fi router & flask server. Any tips or help?
Someone also posted a question to this same blog here too: Video streaming via motion jpeg, python3-flask, and the camera module
