I have a website and the idea is that I can control my robot/car from there.
But to control it without walking among it is to see where he's riding.
I already got my controls working but I also want to stream my camera view to the website.
I'm using a website because I want to be able to watch the stream from wherever I have an internet connection.

I was thinking of uploading the images every millisecond or stream the camera to the FTP server somehow.
I think that uploading the images every millisecond is almost impossible with the current WiFi speed.

So I was googling and watching youtube how to stream the camera with python to a website.
But the only thing I found was:
- using the command line.
- using python to stream to the ip-address of the Raspberry Pi. And it is only visitable from the network he's connected to.
I want to use python because I want to control when to start and stop the stream to reduce power when I'm not watching.
