Re: starting and stopping a python script from web ui

Thanks for reply The script flashes the light in a repeating sequence, that is why it continues to run in background until stopped For the simple light functions like all on, or all off I have put the code itself in the button event, but for the scripts which loop I thought best way was to call them...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

You can either put a number in GMTOffset or you can put in a time zone string (e.g. Europe/London) I doubt whether the scheduler part would affect the filenames though, more just when scheduler actions happen. What time zone are you in? A 1 hour difference sounds like a daylight savings offset. My ...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Have you set the raspberry time zone correctly to match your locale? sudo raspi-config You should also put the time zone in the Scheduler settings if you want timing in there to be consistent. Time zone is set correctly Where in the scheduler settings do I put it - can only see latituide, longitude...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Have you tried adjusting the capture timeout in the latest version. In particular setting the timeout to 0 to disable it? The reason for checking this is because you said the previous software did not suffer the problem reported and adding the timeout was the only change. Thank you very much for yo...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

The difference was that raspimjpeg had an extra timeout built in so that if it didn't get a call back from the camera within 5 seconds then it would timeout. Previously it hung up altogether if callbacks stopped. I don't know why your system is sensitive to that. What I have done is add a parameter...

To revert the raspimjpeg back to an earlier one 1) First get the earlier one. There are different ways of doing this my preferred method is a) Browse to repository and view bin folder b) Goto history and select a data (e.g. Jan 10) c) View Browse Repository at this date d) Click raspimjpeg, View Ra...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

I suspect that there is some instability in your camera connection that is triggering this. Typically it is when the power supply or the USB cable is not providing a stable voltage to the Pi. In particular the USB cable needs to be low resistance or there can be a significant voltage drop along it....
