This isn’t an Easel-specific question, but I didn’t see a better forum and decided to post here. I have an older PC I use that is dedicated to the maker work I do (3D printing, carving/milling using my Carvey, developing Arduino projects, SVG editing using Inkscape, etc…). The PC is running Windows 7 Pro (64 bit) and I recently purchased a Logitech C920 web cam with the intent to use it to remotely monitor the status of my projects (carves, and 3D prints). I was expecting the web cam to come with web streaming software, but it didn’t, and I was wondering if anyone here has any recommendations.
My one main requirement is that I be able to stream video, obtain an IP address, and then be able to remotely watch the stream using a tablet or phone.
Some nice to haves would also be:
- Whitelist/restrict who can view the stream
- Take snapshots at set intervals and stich together a video
I also have a spare Raspberry Pi, so I suppose one option would be to install the Octo Pi OS/distribution, but I’d like to explore and look into solutions for my Window PC first, and was wondering if any of the users here used a web cam to monitor the status of their projects, and if so what streaming software do they use.
