long time reader, but now is the time i need to register and ask for your help.
I am not very knowledgeable yet, most of my projects were done with tutorials, so please explain as if i'm doing this for the first time, which it kindof is, since i have not found anyone describing this behavior.
After the Pi boots it should show a fullscreen, full fps (atleas 1920x1080 30 fps) webcam preview, until the power is cut. Manually i can do this, but the automation on boot is not working for me. It should be a cabled connection(cam to pi and pi to monitor). No recording, just watching the camera feed on the PC monitor or TV. It does not have to be libcamera, but
Code: Select all
libcamera-still -t 0
Pi Zero W (headless, connectiing with Windows Powershell)
Pi Cam 3 with csi to hdmi adapter
Output for the preview is my normal PC monitor, connected via HDMI port, target is the TV
OS: Newest Raspberry Pi OS Lite 32bit from the Pi Imager + Update and Upgrade after initial boots(tried several times, had to reformat, so always up to date)
Failed attempts (maybe the would work, but i tried them several times with )
Crontabs (never used it before, tried several things on how to wirte it from this forum and tutorials. basically it was my manual command with a @reboot infront of it)
Other methods all seem to open .py files, which seems to not be aplicable ?! (I have no idea yet on how to do python)
I hope the situation is described as clearly as possible and you can find a solution. If i have missed an already existing thread that might help i may have missed it due to missing knowledge to transform the information.
Thanks in advance!
