I'm trying to create a new SD card for the video payload. I "read" the image from the old SD card onto the laptop and then "wrote" the image onto the new SD card. This appeared to be successful. Then I inserted the card, turned on pi, logged into pi, use sudo raspi-config. But the next screen does not give me the same options as those shown in the instructions. Instead, I'm given these options: 1 Change User Password 2 Hostname 3 Boot Options 4 Localisation Options 5 Interfacing Options 6 Overclock 7 Advanced Options 8 Update 9 About raspi-config
I was looking at the wrong thing before. But I think I did it right this time and it didn't work. I downloaded the SD Card Formatter and formatted my card. I downloaded zip7 (64 bit version for windows). I downloaded 2017-04-21-eclipse-pi.img.gz from GitHub and "extracted" the file using zip7. Then I wrote the extracted file to the card using Win32. It said the write was successful. But after I insert the card into the payload and try to stream video, the command prompt freezes at this:
Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.15063] (c) 2017 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

If it is not proceeding past this point I would check the raspberry pi and make sure that you are actually streaming from the pi. Have you tried hooking the Raspberry Pi a monitor and keyboard to see if it is booting up all the way?
You can check and see if the camera is turning on when running the Raspberry Pi by typing this into the terminal
ps aux | grep raspivid
This should show 2 lines of results. If it just shows 1 then your camera is not turning on. The camera might not be plugged in. You also downloaded one of the oldest versions of the video system, I would recommend downloading the new version since there are a bunch of bugs that we have fixed since then.
I did the long formatting on the card and then wrote the newest file version to it and now it seems to be working! Thank you so much for your help! Does this new version include the settings to record in 10 minute chunks or do I need to do that over again?
