Streaming a camera to Chromecast #Video #Streaming #Chromecast @hardillb
Ben’s Place provides details on streaming a cheap WiFi camera to a Chromecast device connected to a TV.
Chromecasts support a number of different media types but for video we have 2 common codec that will work across all the currently available device types.
And we have 3 options to deliver the video stream
These are all basically the same, they chop the video up into short segments and generate a play list that points to the segments in order and the consumer downloads each segment. When it reaches the end of the list it downloads the list again which will now hold the next list of segments.

Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
