I configured this stream to be resilient to slow traffic and or dropped connections. Unfortunately bitrate had to be sacrificed. As a result, I ended up with a project that uses very little voltage and can operate on a single battery for an entire day. Upgraded cam to Pi cam v2 and added power within the hat itself.
This year, i went back to the cam v1 and i added a 14 segment display. no time yet to integrate much with the camera system. Huge thanks to stephen.
