Adding a Camera

Using mjpg streamer - USB Camera only

Follow these instructions to get mjpg streamer installed on a raspberry pi. If using RRF in SBC mode, then that SBC can be used. If setting up with RRF in wifi mode, a pi zero is powerful enough.

Once mjpg streamer is installed, make the following changes to the mjpg streamer config.

PORT="-p 8080"
DAEMON="true"

Now you can access the webcam on the same IP address as DWC using http://myduetsipaddress:8080/?action=stream. You can also add this to the general setting tab in the DUET, and have the webcam feed page showing under “Current Job”.
