Streaming Video From Your Raspberry Pi Camera Module with VLC

If you want to build a surveillance cam you might want to have a look at motion, but for simple video streaming I 'd go for vlc.

Enable Camera Module

sudo raspi-config

Install VLC Media Player

sudo apt-get install vlc

Stream (RTSP)

 raspivid -o - -t 0 -n -w 800 -h 600 -fps 20 | cvlc -vvv stream:///dev/stdin --sout '#rtp{sdp=rtsp://:8554/}' :demux=h264

- w: width
- h: heigt
- fps: frames per second

Viewing The RTSP Stream 

You need a video player capable of RTSP (e.g. VLC). Open a network stream:

rtsp://###.###.###.###:8554/

###.###.###.### is the IP address of your raspberry pi. Also, do not forget the '/'  at the end, otherwise it won't work.

Streaming Over HTTP

 raspivid -o - -t 0 -n -w 800 -h 600 -fps 20 | cvlc -vvv stream:///dev/stdin --sout '#standard{access=http,mux=ts,dst=:8554}' :demux=h264
