Using the Easycap USB video capture device with OpenWrt Slug
This site showed me how - http://www.farlock.org/nslu2/openwrt-non-standard-module-compiling/
put it in here -
It is essential to run kamikaze 8.09.2 - I compiled that but I understand that
Using mjpg_streamer the only active video input lead is number 4.
In /etc/init.d/done I have as below - (the red text is the new part)
also note http://easycap.blogspot.co.uk/
So far I have failed to run 2 instances of mjpg_streamer with the second one running my Logitech HD C270 webcam.
Also - a Logitech Webcam Pro 9000 Web camera will run with a Logitech HD C270 webcam.
But - two Logitech HD C270 webcams will not run together on one Slug.
Such are the mysteries of Linux
Also note -
This cheap USB cam is available from many eBay shops
It runs with mjpg_streamer but needs the PC to do the processing - good enough for snapshots for Motion.
I have not managed to get it to run with a second cam of any sort.
The picture is clear and seems to be 640 x 480 native - you can focus it for a nestbox cam etc.
The LEDs look fake but are real - but I see no way to switch them from Linux.
The mjpg_streamer command line in /etc/init.d/done has to be like -
mjpg_streamer -i "input_uvc.so -d /dev/video0 -f 5 -y -q 80 -n" -o "output_http.so -p 8087 -w /webcam_www" -b
