Raspberry Pi 3 with Raspberry Pi Camera Board

I have tried several times now to get mjpgstreamer up and running with my pi camera, but it refuses to work properly. I have been able to test and make sure my camera is working using raspistill, which it does. I followed the steps in the how to for linux, but when I try browsing to port 8080, it doesn't appear to be running. Is there something else that needs to be installed on a Pi to get mjpgstreamer up and running?


  • So I ended up getting it figured out. I followed the instructions for Octoprint, and this seems to have gotten it up and running.
    cd ~
    sudo apt-get install subversion libjpeg8-dev imagemagick libav-tools cmake
    git clone https://github.com/jacksonliam/mjpg-streamer.git
    cd mjpg-streamer/mjpg-streamer-experimental
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=.
    ./mjpg_streamer -i "./input_uvc.so" -o "./output_http.so"
    <span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Verdana; font-size: 13.3333px; line-height: normal; white-space: normal;">or for the raspberry pi camera</span><br>
    ./mjpg_streamer -i "./input_raspicam.so -fps 5" -o "./output_http.so"
