    Hello

    Could someone advise me how to stream video from my webcam to a specific port on UDP?
    There is a guy named "Derek Molloy" who does good tutorials on that but he uses H264 Format and my camera doesn't support that .I don't know how to modify the code/commands for YUV (I need YUV) so I would appreciate some help.
    Using his tutorials I managed to capture raw pictures/video to a file and then open them, which is good. But I would really like to get that UDP stream working.

    I'm using v4l2 .

    If this is not possible from v4l2 , is it possible with another program?
    For testing purposed I'm using VLC media player configured to listen for a UDP stream and also a java program that I wrote that listens to a UDP socket , none of which seem to respond.

    Thanks in advance

    UDP is port.
    H264 is format.

    You send video in format X to UDP port Y.

    I don't think you understood what I was trying to say.

    a)My camera doesn't support H264
    b)I need YUV format

    The specific code that was offered was using some parameters that accepted h264 format . They don't work with YUYV.

    Thanks , but that doesn't really help me much because I'm very new to linux so I don't understand most of the things said in those articles.
    I know the ffmpeg is a ..."thing" that does something with video but that's about it :D
