Good luck - I hate to break it to you but it is not going to be possible on a platform like this. The volume of data is going to kill you. There really would need to be a “pipeline” of data transfer from the cam to the wifi; a general purpose microcontroller will always struggle to deal with that.
Oops… sorry. I submitted the question by mistake before I completed drafting it. I have updated my question now.
And I am using the GHI USB Cam module over the lowest resolution of 160X120 and trying to achieve a framerate of anything over 1 fps. Which I assume should be possible.
Back to the question, I get a null pointer exception when I add the Wifi module in designer from the camera.dll module. Any suggestions?
Yes. It did work pretty well the other day I tried without any heating problem. I also got the video stream running when the Wifi module was not connected. And nothing much has changed after that. Except that I kept it the gadgeteer on battery power with the Serial camera plugged in running for 3 hours or so .
The USB camera video stream was being displayed on the DisplayN18 module on a FEZ spider powered by UCBattery 4xAA Module. I forgot to power it off and it was running for a while. I am not sure if there was heating problem was already there at that point.
