It's an ESP32 board with a camera, running a web server, so it acts as an inexpensive webcam.
To flash the module, do not forget the jumper between pins IO0 and GND!

- Step by step video guide to getting it up and running with Arduino IDE and the Expressif CameraWebServer example
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
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
