Great question – because it is something I constantly ask myself! I write academic books and journal articles and am in need of something like this.

As you say, Pandoc or something like that, needs to therefore render it. The ...

I've faced similar problems with web-based markdown editors (id est, not supporting live previews or Github-flavoured markdown), so I've built my own widget, based on Parsedown Extra and TCPDF (for MD to PDF output, via HTML).

The Atom editor is very good for programming in HTML and CSS. There are several plugin packages to turn Atom into more of an IDE than just an editor. It supports real time preview. I've used Atom extensively for both Python and HTML. Atom is free as are the plugins.

On Linux you should be able to code something yourself if you are using a simple webcam for the video. In a loop wait 1 second, then run a utility like fswebcam (usually a standard package in most Linux distributions), to take a single jpg or png picture, and then use ImageMagick to compare the last 2 images.
