Streaming real video on Raspberry Pi's flimsy CPU is a tricky balancing art. It is possible in some situations The Detective tries too hard at her effort to send the best quality video streams to you. In the past, we have received user's reports that the streaming uses too much CPU and causes the printer to stutter. If you run into any issues like that, there is an option to switch off video streaming:
- Open OctoPrint page (not The Spaghetti Detective page). Open "Settings" by clicking the wrench icon.
- Scroll the sidebar to the bottom and click "The Spaghetti Detective".
- Click "Advanced".
- Check "Disable webcam streaming".
- Click "Save".
- Restart OctoPrint.
