8:32 PM Posted by Gopal Kildoliya 2 comments
Hello and welcome friends. Today we are going to connect a webcam to LinkIt Smart 7688 device and streaming it on http port with help of 'mjpg-streamer'. So let's start.

So what we need:
  • LinkIt Smart 7688 Board,
  • a USB Webcam. I am using Logitech's 270,
  • a USB OTG cable,
  • a computer or laptop with wifi connection,
  • and a wifi network.
First step is to connect the LinkIt Smart to your wifi network. If you don't know how to connect the check it here

Now login to LinkIt Smart through ssh.
ssh root@mylinkit.local

Make sure the LinkIt Smart has 'mjpg_streamer' package installed. Type the following command. It will give you details about the package.
mjpg_streamer -h

If your device don't have this package then install it with 'opkg install' command.

Now run the following command.

mjpg_streamer -i " -d /dev/video0 -r 640x480 -f 25" -o " -p 8080 -w /www/webcam"

 This will stream your webcam to http port 8080.
