How to set up USB camera for Octoprint on Debian system
I installed OctoPrint on my nettop (Foxconn NT-330) to control custom-built Delta printer. I also have generic USB endoscope-type camera attached to the nettop.
Basic setup went well, printer is visible and controllable by OctoPrint server.
USB camera is visible via usb-list and mplayer can output live video.
The problem is that on the OctoPrint Webcam configuration tab it requires "Stream URL" which I don't know where to get from.
You need to install a web-cam server on your Nettop. Octorint recommends Yawcam for windows and mjpg-streamer for linux.
OctoPrint has instructions for installing mjpg-streamer on a raspberry pi. The process should be very similar for a Nettop running Debian so its a good starting place. The instructions are a little ways down the page: https://github.com/foosel/OctoPrint/wiki/Setup-on-a-Raspberry-Pi-running-Raspbian
