Introduction

It's an ESP32 board with a camera, running a web server, so it acts as an inexpensive webcam.

Hardware

To flash the module, do not forget the jumper between pins IO0 and GND!

Software

platformio

The CameraWebServer example can be compiled as a platformio project: https://github.com/bertrik/CameraWebServer

To build the code, clone the git repo above, cd into it, then type

 pio run

To upload it to the board (put a jumper between IO0 and GND):

 pio run -t upload

To watch the debug output (remove the jumper):

 pio device monitor

Platformio can be installed on a Debian Linux system as follows:

 sudo apt-get install python-pip
 sudo pip install platformio
 pio upgrade
