Octoprint: Reducing Camera Lag Time?

  • I've got a webcam (Logitech ProductID_2470, according to my Mac) attached to my Octopi running on a RPi 3B.



    I am able to get the video on the Octoprint display page, but the lag is huge: over 50 seconds.



    How can I diagnose the problem and reduce this lag time?


  • This was due to a slow Wifi connection. It was fast enough for the low bandwidth of printer commands and status reports, but the video feed was overwhelming the connection.



    Adding a Wifi repeater increased the bandwidth and fixed the issue.
