A Streaming Server Application for the Elphel 313 Network Camera
is a demonstration server application
model 313 network camera.
This application will multicast live video (JPEG frames)
from the camera over the LAN, using the industry standard RTSP/RTP/RTCP
The application uses a built-in RTSP server, so that
players (such as Apple's QuickTime Player)
can view the stream, by opening a "rtsp://" URL.
To run the
- First, configure the camera's parameters
(size, Y, R, G, B, quality, frame duration etc.) using the usual web-based interface
- i.e., by opening
To set these parameters, grab an image (using "Preview" for a half-sized image, or "Still photo" for a full-sized image).
- Then, upload the

is the desired frame rate (in frames per second). The program will then start, and print out the "rtsp://" URL that you can use to view the stream (from a media player client).
- Using a media player client - on the same LAN as the camera - open this "rtsp://" URL.
The source code for the application is available in the file
If you wish
to build the application from source, you must first set up a
(as described on the Elphel web site),
and then download and build the
"LIVE555 Streaming Media" libraries,
(Note: Some of the test programs (in the "testProgs" directory) may not build properly, because of
"gethostname()" not being available.
That's OK; ignore them.)
Then, download and unpack the
ElphelStreamer source code, putting the
"Elphel" directory as a subdirectory in the "live" directory.
cat Makefile.head ../config.cris-axis-linux-gnu Makefile.tail > Makefile
to build the "ElphelStreamer" application.
