one question, can i change the port that it uses from 80 to something different?
Yes, very easy, just visit http://elinux.org/RPi-Cam-Web-Interface
Which offers a guide to port changes and security.

Re: Pi2 B and Pi-Pan (ServoBlaster)

OK I admit it, I have read two pages of posts that respond to my original post about Pi-Pan not working and I'm completely lost. The other post I started about gpio issues has been locked, so clearly no solution there! I’ve had a Pi2 B for almost a week and would like to use it with a pan and tilt h...

Pi2 & Servoblaster, pi-blaster, RPIO.GPIO, pigpio, LCDproc

The above don't work with the Pi2 B, So backwards compatibility was a half truth at best. Basicly if we want to use the gpio for anything much the average user is stuffed untill software and or kernal updates are issued. No need to respond in defence of an amazing product, just post with practical s...

Re: Pi2 B and Pi-Pan (ServoBlaster)

You are being unduly pessimistic. I doubt it is most add on hardware. I'd have thought that little add on hardware would be relying on userland DMA - it's pretty esoteric. I was referring to GPIO stuff rather than USB etc. Possibly pessimistic, but even temp sensors seem to be giving odd readings "...

Re: Pi2 B and Pi-Pan (ServoBlaster)

This is all third party software, nothing to do with the charity. It'll be up to the third parties to update their software if they want to maintain compatibility with the Pi 2. Hmm, so the changes in hardware are not just "4 cores and more ram"! Most add on hardware will no longer work without com...

Clearly, in the law, the person responsible is the retailer. That is in no doubt whatsoever. It's not unfair to them. They sell the product, they are responsible for it.

3.5" TFT+Touchscreen for Raspberry Pi Warning

Purchased a PiTFT - Assembled 480x320 3.5" TFT+Touchscreen for Raspberry Pi from Adafruit in the US a few weeks ago and got hit for over £20 in import charges on delivery. So a very expensive screen indeed!

Be warned if ordering anything over about £10 from the USA etc.
