Neither one nor Many

Click the play button to start stream. (Will only work if I have the script running on my raspberry pi though. )

raspivid + ffmpeg

# test chaining raspivid and ffmpeg
raspivid -t 5000 -w 960 -h 540 -fps 25 -b 500000 -vf -o - | ffmpeg -i - -vcodec copy -an -r 25 -f flv test.flv

# stream to tcp endpoint
raspivid -n -t 0 -w 1920 -h 1080 -fps 25 -b 2000000 -o - | ffmpeg -i - -vcodec copy -an -f flv -metadata streamName=video2 tcp://

Port 6666 is the same with the sample that is delivered with crtmpserver (the flvplayback.lua sample).

Turn off pi camera led

#!/usr/bin/env python
import time
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO

# Use GPIO numbering

# Set GPIO for camera LED

# Set GPIO to output
GPIO.setup(CAMLED, GPIO.OUT, initial=False)

# Five iterations with half a second
# between on and off
#for i in range(5):
#  GPIO.output(CAMLED,True)  # On
#  time.sleep(0.5)
#  GPIO.output(CAMLED,False) # Off
#  time.sleep(0.5)

GPIO.output(CAMLED,False) # Off

Think I got this script from here.
