    raspivid-stream

    Raspberry pi cam video, as a stream you can send straight to web clients.

    The first request for a stream starts the camera recording and streams from there.

    All subsequent calls will be given a stream starting with the initial parameter frames (so it's renderable, but starting the actual video frames from the current time.

    You should be able to pass the output client-side into a renderer like Broadway.js, or h264-live-player (broadway + logic + canvas renderer) and immediately get live streaming video. See pi-cam for a simple working demo.

    Installation

    npm install raspivid-stream

    videoStream.on('data', (data) => {
        ws.send(data, { binary: true }, (error) => { if (error) console.error(error); });
    });
