    Will try VLC to see if any improvement but there are other aps if software is put on the pi.

    Update: New Raspian image installed on my Pi and also VLC. App now streams very well,with about 4 sec delay over wi-fi at 640x480 using h264 option and VLC on the Android tablet. Good work.

    It works very well for daytime but really needs to be able to invoke night mode as well. Keep up the very good work.

    Excellent and easy. A quick install of fswebcam on the pi and USB cam works great. Like the use of a password too. A simple setting change on the router and can now view the cam anywhere in the world. 30fps not working through USB cam.
