Can't help but notice the past tense on the getting 60fps working... Don't suppose wider FOV solution can also be talked about as a problem solved :)

Re: New features for raspistill command

Sorry, simply don't have the time to look at it at the moment. I have three camera modes that really need sorting out - full FOV video; 60fps; 90fps. Glad to see full FOV is at (or near) the top of the list. I've had to resort to other using usb webcams while waiting for this to happen, but I'd muc...

Re: Live streaming from PiCam

That's odd... I've got a nice HLS stream going that is available on IOS (as expected) and I subsequently expected it to not work on my android as the original one http://newstream.hexten.net/picaster/ posted by Andy did not work. However, it did... and worked reliably. I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 And...

Re: Live streaming from PiCam

Thanks for sharing Andy this is ridiculously good - both in terms of the live stream quality and the use of such cheap and available technologies (both hardware - raspi and camera, and software ffmpeg etc) to effectively create an enterprise system that could handle huge scale.

Re: PANIC: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(179

I am overclocking at the second highest level. It does seem to happen remarkably often across different SD cards for me. It seems to be this is quite an issue if it does occur regularly with other people. I can fix relatively easily by re-flashing the card but I can imagine lots of disappointed teac...

Re: h264: possible to force SPS/PPS per GOP?

Thanks Andy If you have very tightly controlled conditions you might be able to get as low as 1s latency - but if you have tightly controlled conditions you can probably use RTP/RTSP/RTMP or just pipe a MPEG-TS stream over a TCP connection without any protocol. I know it seems like a tantalising pro...

Re: h264: possible to force SPS/PPS per GOP?

Hi All, This is a great thread for HLS! Andy you mentioned the latency trade off that occurs for the benefits you get with HLS - is 2 seconds the lowest you can go to for each fragment or can you push it down further?

Hi All, Are people still having this problem? It has happened to me a couple of times now and I suspected that it was just the SD card getting corrupted.
