Setting up a Raspberry Pi Zero W as a webcam server


#1

Now that we've got the excellent MultiCam plugin, I thought it might be nice to write up a step-by-step tutorial for installing a Raspberry Pi Zero W computer as a webcam server.

Instructions

In theory, you could dedicate one Raspberry Pi Zero W computer with each webcam to serve up different views. I'll design and print an enclosure in a bit but wanted to provide the how-to first.
