Used in the following projects:
Once you assemble and plug in your Pi with the provided SD card (or flash your own from one of the recipes here):
- wait 3-5 minutes for it to start up
- connect to the
00-PiCamerawifi network with password
- wait for the popup prompt, or use
Click to log in to this network, or if nothing happens, go to http://pi.local (NOT
https, sorry!) and you'll see the welcome page.
If this doesn't work, please post a question below!
The streaming video you see in the web interfaces is not the highest quality available; to change it, click
Camera settings at the
http://pi.local/cam/ page, and change the
Wi value to something higher like
1024. It can in theory go as high as
1980, but I think streaming at high framerates at this resolution is probably tough for your Pi.
To create a new recipe on Pi Builder, see the GitHub repository (and readme file) here:
There you can look at proposed recipes, open an issue, or start developing your own recipe by opening a pull request, which will begin auto-building your image each time you push a commit.
