Details about the M-JPEG streamer


You sucessfully managed to install this streaming webserver. If you can see this page, you can also access the stream of JPGs, which can originate from your webcam for example. This installation consists of these example pages and you may customize the look and content.

just an image

The reason for developing this software was the need of a simple and ressource friendly streaming application for Linux-UVC compatible webcams. The predecessor uvc-streamer is working well, but i wanted to implement a few more ideas. For instance, plugins can be used to process the images. One input plugin copies images to a global variable, multiple output plugins can access those images. For example this webpage is served by the output_http.so plugin.

static image example

The image displayed here was grabbed by the input plugin. The HTTP request contains the GET parameters action=snapshot. This requests one single picture from the image-input. To display another example, just click on the picture.

About the examples

To view the stream with any browser you may try the javascript or java subpages. Firefox is able to display the M-JPEG-stream directly.
