Video Streaming on the BeagleBone Black - Part 1?

Fascinated by video? This post is now on the new site:


  1. Hi Noel, I would like to thank you for posting this. This has been very helpful for me in getting started with development with on the BeagleBone Black. I would like to add this blog post as a source on a report that I am writing for a school project. If you could email me your name, that would be most helpful. Thank you.

  2. Glad it was helpful! I just added you on Google+

  3. Hi Noel! I am actually using a Logitech webcam 270 and i too have been using mjpg streamer. However, now when i try to run the commands it tells me :

    DBG(input_uvc.c, input_init(), 355): vdIn pn: 0
    Unable to set format: 1196444237 res: 640x480
    Init v4L2 failed !! exit fatal
    i: init_VideoIn failed

    ...I am scratching my head on this one. It was working fine before. Any suggestions?
