Introduction: How to Live Stream Using Raspberry Pi
In this tutorial, we will learn how to make our own surveillance camera using Raspberry Pi.
You can access this stream using any device as long as it's connected to the same network the RPi is.
Raspberry Pi completed with Screen (you can use a TV or and monitor you have), Keyboard and Mouse
Step 1: Attach the Camera
Sep 10, 2017 # import libraries from vidgear.gears import VideoGear from vidgear.gears import NetGear stream = VideoGear(source='test.mp4').start #Open any video stream server = NetGear #Define netgear server with default settings # infinite loop until Ctrl+C is pressed while True: try: frame = stream.read # read frames # check if frame is None if. YouTube Live Streaming is a new feature we've added to NCH Software's Video/Audio streaming products. It enables you to stream Video/Audio content to YouTube so that. Managing video feedback with team video collaboration tools can make a BIG difference on any video project. Find out how in this Frame.io Review!

- Pull the black plastic edges of the camera port
- Make sure the blue end of the ribbon is facing the USB ports
- Make sure the silver connectors are all in
*Refer to pictures attached
Step 2: Enable Camera
1. On your Raspberry Pi, go to [Preferences] > [Raspberry Pi Configuration]
2. On Raspberry Pi Configuration window, click on [interfaces] tap, then click on [Enable] next to [Camera]
*You need to reboot your Raspberry Pi, for the camera to work
4. Test the camera
This command will take a shot in 5 seconds to test if the camera is working
Step 3: Script
1. Launch Thonny or Python and paste the script below

Dropped frames are often the root cause of many live stream playback issues. In this guide we’ll go through some of the common causes of dropped frames specifically in OBS, however most of this advice can be applied to any live stream encoder.
How to tell if you’re experiencing frame drops in OBS
There are two ways to tell if your stream is potentially dropping frames. The first is if viewers are complaining about a stuttering live stream. In some cases this could be an issue with live stream platform you’re using, or the issue could be on your end.
The second way of telling is in OBS itself. When you’re broadcasting a live stream, at the bottom of the OBS window you can find information about the stream status and if the stream is dropping any frames.
1. Reduce the resolution of your streams
In general, the higher the stream resolution, the higher the CPU usage. Reducing the resolution to a smaller size may help reduce frame drops.
Alternatively if you have a newer Nvidia graphics card, you can try turning on hardware encoding. This offloads most of the processing onto the GPU. You can read our guide on how to turn on hardware encoding here.

2. Reduce the bitrate of your streams
If your upload bandwidth isn’t sufficiently matched to your bitrate, then you may experience stuttering. This occurs because OBS can’t maintain the specified bitrate, and will constantly be changing the bitrate. You want to find a bitrate that you can stream consistently, as any spikes in bitrate will likely cause stuttering.
3. If live streaming over WiFi try using an ethernet cable
Live streaming over WiFi can be incredibly unreliable as the signal strength can change constantly during the stream. Try broadcasting a live stream whilst using an ethernet cable connected directly to the modem. If this stops the frame drops, then you likely have WiFi issues.
If WiFi is the only option, then it’s recommended to find a WiFi channel that is the least congested, using an app like ‘WiFi Analyzer’ available on Android. Additionally make sure your WiFi channel is not set to ‘Auto’.
4. Check your firewall settings
In some cases firewalls could be blocking the port required for RTMP. Make sure outbound TCP port 1935 is accessible.
5. Broadcast to a server that is closest to you

Depending on the live streaming platform you’re using, you can likely broadcast to a range of servers in different locations. In general you’re best to stream to a server that is geographically closest to where you’re located.
