Raspbian OS Image for Video Livestreaming Experiments

by Eugene Pomazov

Over a week has passed and we have a little bonus for you!

Our campaign started nine days ago, and we’ve already gathered 72% of our goal. Thank you for all your support!

On our campaign page, you can see a group of stereoscopic video livestreaming experiments, including with YouTube, Oculus Go, and first-person-view drones. Behind the scenes, we did a lot of other livestream experiments with translation video to Mac, Windows, Android phones, and RTMP servers.

These experiments took a lot of preparation, which we preserved in the form of a Raspbian OS image from you which you can run them all. Today, we want to share this image with you, so you can repeat all these experiments on your Raspberry Pi while you’re waiting for your StereoPi. The image is compatible with classic Raspberry Pi and a single camera. We’ve also made available the Android application and gstreamer examples for receiving the video livestream on Mac and Windows. Check it out on our newborn wiki and start your own livestream experiments! In the meantime, we are working on filling up the other wiki sections. More soon!

StereoPi AnyCase Kit

With AnyCase Kit you can get your setup in a 10 minutes, before you go to your 3D printer or laser cut machine! You can assemble any case with 25, 65, 120 or 200 mm stereobase, or for 360 degree video with just a screwdriver! And you have 12 more camera ribbons now, do not afraid to bend you cables in your bold experiments!


StereoPi Slim Edition

Perfect for DIY ninjas and those wanting to embed StereoPi in a tight space. This board is the same as the standard edition, but without all the bulky connectors - the Ethernet RJ45 jack, GPIO header, and dual USB Type-A connector have not been populated. To use this board, you will need your own Raspberry Pi Compute Module, cameras, and camera ribbon cables. Two short power cables already included.


StereoPi Starter Kit

This kit has everything you need to get started right away. The kit includes one StereoPi Standard Edition board, two V1 cameras (w/ ~20 cm ribbon cables), one Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 + Lite, and everything in the StereoPi Accessories Kit (two short ribbon cables, one USB power cable, two power cables, one V1/V2 dual-camera mounting plate, and one wide-angle dual-camera mounting plate). We've also included a microSD card pre-imaged with Raspbian and all the stereoscopic video and image demos you see on this project page.


StereoPi Deluxe Kit

This kit includes everything in the StereoPi Starter Kit and adds two wide-angle (160°) cameras (w/ ~20 cm ribbon cables). With this kit, you'll be able to run all of the demos shown on this project page and start experimenting on your own. You will reign supreme over your stereoscopic domain.



We are a small team of geeks who have been making remote-controlled things with livestreaming video since 2010. We've done everything from boats and planes, to robots, copters, and VR helmets. If we can't find the right tools for our projects, we build them ourselves.
