If you look at the “pivideo_class.py” file you can see the various packages that are imported, including smbus, serial, and time. The smbus package is optional, and only required for I2C communication with PiCapture. These packages are all installed by default on the standard raspbian distribution, but apparently must be installed manually with the EZ wifibroadcast distribution that you are using. PIP would be able to install the missing packages, but apparently is broken on your system. If you are unable to resolve the PIP issues, then you will need to install them manually. We aren’t able to provide support for every distribution, but the general process is described online:
