Re: PiKrellCam: motion vector detect + OSD web interface

HI Billw and other experts here, I'd like to get some help in getting network share working so that I can use remote mounted share, instead of local SD or USB card. I learned in the post that NFS can do storage as well as live view, having same effect as local USB. Others, like SMB may not be able t...

Re: PiKrellCam: motion vector detect + OSD web interface

HI Jbeable, With regard to your script to delete old files, it seems that every run of your script will delete some portion of old files. I ran a few times manually, it finally brought down to 85%. Questions 1. Why did the script not delete all at once to bring it down to 85%, when I manually do it....

Re: PiKrellCam: motion vector detect + OSD web interface

HI Jbeale,

I deleted some of videos and now, when I issued command,
[email protected]:~ $ /home/pi/pikrellcam/scripts/pk-archive
archive_still day 2016-08-21
used space below 85%, nothing to do!

What other command are there that I may use to check other logs? Is the script I pased ok?
thanks.

Re: PiKrellCam: motion vector detect + OSD web interface

HI Jbeale, I tried leveraging your script to keep disk with at least some free by deleting old ones. However, it seems that my 30G card filled up after my trip. The calendar archive function seems working fine. Do you have any thoughts whether I got your script implemented correctly? Thanks [email protected]...

Re: PiKrellCam: motion vector detect + OSD web interface

HI Billw,

In order to upload files with smaller size, I reduced file size with lower resolutions of these two screen captures.

You can see, that with all settings of PI and browser equal, one preview is larger than the other one.

Thanks

HI Billw, In one of my early post, I mentioned that I have 5 same Pi B. With identical setting in PI and Web browser, two of PI's preview picture are a bit larger than rest of 3 PI's . The OSD zone actually is closely related to this Preview picture size. I felt that it might affect the accuracy of ...

Re: PiKrellCam: motion vector detect + OSD web interface

HI YvesG,

thanks for the link. Do you use this in-house or outdoor? I was wondering whether people use these Servos outdoor. In that case, how it's being cased......... It would be nice to have a wiki with a section of showing how people use it in different ways.......

thanks

I was wondering whether you can post a video you got from your Servos and exact model/link of Servos.

I'd like to invest on this as well. :-)

HI,
To encourage a bit .... I have been using Jessie Light with no issues.

What I did is to just have GIT installed and then, pulled script to get Pikrellcam installled and it worked after following it's instruction.

Not sure I can help much, but an encouragement.
My pi is pi B+.

The only problem now is that my NAS (OpenMediaVault) is doing NFS V4 and I can not mount share with "v3" option. I can mount it without "v3"; however, the direc...

Re: PiKrellCam: motion vector detect + OSD web interface

Billw, Once we work out a correct way of mounting to remote CIFS/SMB or NFS as alternative to local SD/USB, it would be nice to have this choice during installation process. It will ask whether we use local SD, or USB, or NFS or CIFS. If it's something we can put into GUI, it would be good as well. ...
