For my IRL game The Chase, I need multiple, body-mountable, wifi-connected, live-streaming cameras.


  • real time streaming
  • on demand - meaning I can switch it on remotely
  • decent picture (hd not required...yet)
  • mount to body or objects via gopro accessories
  • available via local wifi network
  • battery-operated
  • LATEST RASPI: Raspberry Pi 2 Model B
    • live streaming will not work on a model older than this!

Parts List

Skill Set

  • General Raspi knowledge
  • General command line copy n paste talent
  • Patience

Step 1: Step 1: Setting Up Raspberry Pi Software

How to Set Up a Raspberry Pi to live-stream video over a local network

Instructables is fantastic, but not the best place for software installation instructions, so I've set up this github page to breakdown how to set up the software to make your raspi a runnerpi on the inside.

At the above link, you will be installing:

  • Raspbian (operating system)
  • wicd-curses (wifi signal management)
  • uv4l (Userspace Video4linux)
    • uv4l is the heart of allowing you to stream over wifi
<p>This looks really interesting! I'd love to hear a little more about this game. Can you elaborate on that?</p>
<p>I'll be elaborating with an instructable soon!</p>
<p>I'm also Very interested. I'm looking forward to this!</p>
<p>Sorry about that! Github link now fixed in instructable. FYI, this is the link:</p><p><a href="https://github.com/scottnath/the-chase/blob/master/how-to-set-up-raspi-live-wifi-streaming.md" rel="nofollow">https://github.com/scottnath/the-chase/blob/master...</a></p>
The github link isn't working.
