More info

Capture timelapse videos using an USB Webcam or the Pi Camera and stream video through a webserver. Simply connect your Raspberry Pi to the Internet, attach your Pi Camera and you will be able to see a live stream from your Firefox browser or Iphone/iPad device by simply typing in your browser: http://your-ip-address:8081/

Includes also a network file share, so you can review captured snapshots or movies, by simply connecting to the network share your-ip-address.

The default configuration provided out of the box is to start capturing at every boot a new timelapse video with the following settings:
•    Mpeg4 (requires no installation of codec on a Windows client)
•    Save a frame every 1 second
•    24 fps, 1024 frame width, 576 frame height
•    Name of the file will include date and time of start of shooting

With these settings for every hour of timelapse shooting you get a video of approximately 2.5 minutes and 15Mb. Remember to delete the files in the share after a capture or your SD card will fill up and stop working. The SD card image has 400Mb of space available, if you use an SD card larger than 2Gb you can expand the image with the raspi-config tool (instructions provided) and get all the available extra space of your SD card.

To use this image you will need:
•    A Raspberry Pi model A, B, B+, Pi2 or Pi3
•    A boot SD card for the Raspberry Pi (4Gb or higher)
•    An Ethernet cable to connect to the Internet (not needed during shooting)
•    A Pi Camera

The server can be also setup to:
- provide a live stream
- capture live streams and/or pictures on the network share
- capture images and/or video when something moves in the camera's field of vision. This is ideal for observation purposes because it limits the required bandwidth and the number of images produced. 

You can rotate the stream captured, you can change the width and height to other values (as supported by the Pi Camera), you can change the number of frames captured, you can adjust brightness, contrast and saturation.

For motion detection you can change the threshold number of changed pixels in an image that triggers motion detection, you can filter noise, you can detect motion in predefined areas, you can decide to ignore sudden light intensity changes (for example from a light switch). Also when motion is detected you can select if to capture jpeg snapshots, movies or both. In alternative you can just capture snapshots every N seconds or movies in real-time or time-lapse mode (file rollover mode hourly, daily, weekly).

You can adjust the quality to be used in the compression, you can select the codec to be used, supported formats are mpeg1, mpeg4, msmpeg4 (recommended for use with Windows Media Player because it requires no installation of codec on the Windows client), swf and flv flash videos

You can automatically locate and draw a box around a moving object
You have different timestamp overlay options
You can change target directories and filenames for images and movies
You can have more than one camera each with its own configuration
...And more!

Please understand we cannot afford to provide support or troubleshooting instructions for your specific setup. This image will work out of the box with the default settings provided. We do provide some basic configuration instructions with this image. 

To watch the stream in a browser other than Firefox and Safari you'll need to use a Java applet or the free open source VLC media. We provide a working example based on a free java applet which enables any Java capable browser to show the stream. 

Please note: This is not a physical SD card, this is a preconfigured SD Card Image that you can download and install on the SD card of your choice. The operating systems used and the software provided are Free Open Source.
