I have been at it for about 16 hours and it’s finally time to ask for help. I followed the tutorial and currently have four Rpis running node-red on the same network, which each stream all going to a master UI. I cannot figure out how to record the stream to be viewed later. I don’t need all four to do it, but if I can figure it out on one, I can do it on the rest.
My Problem: I want to stream video and create a button to push that will record what I am currently watching and then view the footage later.
That is possible, but we don’t have any tutorial about that.
I’ve found this: https://elinux.org/RPi-Cam-Web-Interface that seems to have the features you’re looking for.
Then, if you use a template node in Node-RED, you can include the web interface using a <iframe>
I hope this helps.
Thanks for the reply. Of the many different methods I found this was among the last. Sadly, I got into a gigantic mess of not having the newest python and then installing it incorrectly, which led to losing the picamera module. I’m upgrading to buster and will try the elinux method today. I’ll post my results.
