Several webcams on repetier server.
I have repetier server 1.3.0. on a Windows 10
I control 8 3D printers, each with a USB webcam.
I have installed Youcam, I can make 1 camera work, but I don't understand how to make the other 7 work.
Youcam can only handle a single webcam. You need a software that can handle more. From comments of other clients I heard that
can do this, also it is paid software at least for multiple cams. But you can test I think before buying if it works.
Of course any other solution offering mjpg web streams for webcams will work equally well.

Ok, thanks for your answer.
I'm thinking of going for a raspeberry for the simplicity of managing the cams.
But I also have a problem with it:
I configure my cameras, it works on the 8. I restart the server, there is only one that works, the other 7 are "inaccessible".
Hello. Are you still on windows or is this problem occuring on a pi?
It was on a Pi, but I found the solution, it was the webcams that were defective.
Would you have a model to advise me? The Logitech C270 don't have a wide enough angle, I have to put the webcams at more than one meter to be able to film the whole set ( 300x300 )
Not really. Don't own any wide angle webcams. So far I had no problems with any cams I have, just same do not support MJPG so cpu load gets high as pi then has to do the conversion. So I'd suggest just trying a wide angle cam with MJPG support that also claims to be linux compatible.
