As I mentioned previously, one of the reasons for this server is to use it as a live streaming server for some of the IP cameras we use on our LAN parties. Since we now have 8MP/4K IP cameras I also wanted to stream in 4K, preferably in 60FPS to make scrolling text look all beautiful and crisp.

This post will be about phone chargers, so, Phone chargers 101!

A while back a new firmware (184.108.40.206) appeared for the Ti DaVinci DM365 and DM368 camera’s. Only recently a kind comment-er was able to find a link where to download this firmware.
