Questions tagged [streaming-video]

Streaming video often means watching video whilst downloading it from the web (e.g. YouTube); for the RPi it also refers to the process of capturing video data from attached "Raspicams" or USB attached cameras and forwarding it to other computers, either on a LAN or out on the Internet. This tag is to be used for questions about how to stream video to and from the RPi.
