Live streaming from ZCam K2 Pro Camera in Oculus Quest headset

From now on you can easily stream from the Zcam K2 Pro camera to Oculus Quest and Quest 2 headsets with the help of Raspberry Pi. This brings the director's monitor view right into VR and you can adjust the scene before you press the record button. You might try recording and streaming at the same time.

Make sure to mount the Raspberry Pi SD image from the description to this video before you start. Use the original charger or appropriate power bank for the Raspberry Pi. Make sure to keep your Raspberry Pi away from routers or other WiFi devices.

Streaming works from a master camera, which shows footage in mono at 5Mbps with approximately 10 seconds latency. The master camera or camera A is the one with a screen and the record button.

Make sure you have DeoVR installed on your Quest headset. 

  1. Turn the camera on.

  2. In the camera menu go to Connect>Network>ETH. Set “Direct”

  3. Turn on your Raspberry Pi. Connect the Raspberry Pi to the K2 Pro camera using the ethernet cable. 

  4. The streaming will start automatically.

  5. Connect your headset to the “RPI4_Camera_GW” WiFi network

  6. In the DeoVR player app go to the browser and switch to http:// (click on https:// to switch it to http://). 

  7. Type 10.0.0.1 (http://10.0.0.1) in the browser, click enter, then click on “Start Stream”.  You will experience a 10 sec delay.

  8. If the camera is upside down, use the player settings to revert it. Go to Settings > Image tab and drag the “Rotation” slider to +/- 180 degrees.

  9. Look at the image in VR and make any final adjustments to the scene. 

This is RTSP streaming, the only option of K2 camera.
