Re: assign webcam/camera module to /dev/video* at boot

Well, well, well; the future is now!
Last night the order of my 3 cameras got muddled-up and I'm back here to admit my misunderstanding!

Thanks @redhawk ;)
What if I was to use 2 or 3 identical-id cameras?

@Seiduna I guess the CSI camera will always be video0 ???

Yow! Thank you for the solution! It was alarming to have the icons leaping about like that. However did you figure that out?
I searched and searched and searched.
When I eventually found a solution that worked, I joined the forum to post the fix!

You are all very welcome ;)

Re: SOLVED: Anyone done 3 B+ Stretch Wireless Access Point (WAP) successfully?

Although I am using my Pi3 as an AP only (no internet or bridge) , I often had difficulties connecting to the AP (hidden SSID was always discoverable). This solution worked for me; I found/guessed it was the networking.service service, so I ran sudo systemctl stop networking.service and sudo systemc...

Re: assign webcam/camera module to /dev/video* at boot

On my Pi3, the device "addresses" stay the same, no matter how many reboots (if you leave them pluggen in).
I've had motion running consistently like this for years!

I do like the previous posts refering to the cams 'by-id',

Code: Select all

ls /dev/v4l/by-id/ -lh
I may use this in the future, THANKS!

Re: Power Pi Zero from GPIO?

I'm looking at this as,
Output voltage: DC5V2 @ 4A(max). Power :10W MAX
5V2 is shorthand for 5.2V, so it look correct, IMO.

Hurrah, it works! Uncomment the "threads" used in motion.conf and comment out any lines that will be in the "thread*.conf" files. The thread*.conf files live where motion.conf does; /etc/motion/ The tread.conf files only need to describe things that are DIFFERENT between the cameras. Therefore, vide...

Re: USB Microsoft webcam - over exposed problem - code issue

I am having similar issues using fswebcam. The controls ("--list-controls", brightness, contrast, gain, exposure) don't seem to make much difference.
Maybe you could find some setting, too?
