Wifi Camera?

Postby dmccoy » Fri Apr 06, 2018 6:48 pm

Has anyone tried using a camera to view printing remotely? I've noticed a usb port by the belt could I plug in a usb camera into there?

Oh yeah sure you can!!! Does it work, NOPE!!
You have to realize that a video stream from a webcam is rather a big burden for a present touch-board/main-board!
So, even if R3D promised this feature from the inception of the company (Kickstarter) they are unwilling/unable to solve this issue.
PERIOD.

OTOH, per another recent thread on the topic, it works OK if you are willing to fool around with internal software changes on the printer.

Could you share the link? Can't find it! Though this was (time ago) the reason that they didn't do it - inability to process the video stream properly.

If you get a camera that support MJPEG naively, there's very little processing for the printer's CPU. I posted instructions in another topic here somewhere, 1080p30 uses only 5% of 1 core.
