By adding a camera module (or USB webcam) to your Raspberry Pi, you essentially get a portable, lightweight and easy-to-hold-or-mount internet-connected camera.
So, it makes sense that you might want to stream footage with it. But how do you get started with this? Which Pi model should you use? Is one camera module solution better than another? And how the heck do you get the footage onto YouTube?
As with most things Raspberry Pi, it’s remarkably straightforward.
To live stream whatever is in front of your Raspberry Pi to YouTube, you’ll need the following:
- A Raspberry Pi (Model B+ or later).
- Raspberry Pi Camera Module (original or NoIR revision, either is fine) or a USB webcam. These instructions assume a Raspberry Pi Camera Module is in use.
- Wireless dongle if using pre-Raspberry Pi 3 model.
- Portable battery supply (optional).
