Webcam and PiCamera Streaming over the Network with Python
SmoothStream is a Python Application which makes streaming video from webcams over the network a breeze.
Streaming images from your Webcam over the network should be easy, right?
Nope. After pulling my hair out, searching on the internet for weeks, scavenging through old forum posts and digging through old StackOverflow questions, I came up empty-handed. (Most of the code examples were outdated and worked only in Python 2) Until I stumbled upon this StackOverflow Question.
I decided it was 'bout time someone did something about it.
StreamViewer needs to start listening for incoming stream from the
Streamer, once an incoming stream is detected it is displayed on the screen.
SmoothStream currently has a dependency on ZeroMQ and I don't see a way around it.
So, PRs are always welcome.
A step by step series of examples that tell you how to get a development env running
pip install -r requirements.txt
python Streamer.py -s 192.168.1.X
You will see the video being streamed across the network to your Viewer.
