10 second video with Raspberry Pi Camera

Posted: October 13, 2013 by schoolpiclub in Raspberry Pi Camera

To take a 10 second video with your Raspberry Pi camera type the following into LX Terminal

raspivid -o video.h264 -t 10000

raspivid = is the utility that is part of Raspbian (the Raspberry Pi operating system) which is used to capture video.

-o = sets the output filename for the video

video.h264 = is the file name (h.264 is a new video codec standard which can achieve high quality video in relatively low bitrates. You can think it as the “successor” of the existing formats (MPEG2, MPEG-4, DivX, XvidD etc.) as it aims in offering similar video quality in half the size of the formats mentioned before.

-t = sets the time the program will run in milliseconds.

10000 = 10 seconds
