Weird USB slowdown on 3B+

I have 3.5" EXT4-formatted HD in an externally-powered USB enclosure attached to a Pi 3B+ running the latest Raspian Stretch Lite. If I flash a new SD card, I'll see a sustained large-file transfer rate of over 35MB/sec (280 Mbit/sec) to/from the hard drive.But after some hours or days, the best-cas...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

I have a question about using the RPi Cam Web Interface for data collection purposes (specifically for making a spectrometer or conducting NDVI calculations pixel-by-pixel), where it's important to have non-lossy data format and manual camera control. Sounds like a cool project! But I don't think t...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Has anyone set this up with a captive portal? I haven't heard of anyone doing that, but it's a great idea. There are several captive portal options for the Pi that I'm sure would work, but really, since you already have a web server set up via RPi Cam Web, I think all you really need is a very mini...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Add %c %f to your annotation. The first value represents motion; when it gets above the value you have set for motion threshold, it should start recording. Erm, thanks for the hint, but where should I put it? I am currently a bit out of webinterface-context:-) In the web interface, under Camera Set...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Is it possible to start and stop recording from the command line? You can do many things (including start/stop recording) from the command line by writing to the FIFO queue. For example to start recording: (Note that your directory name may be different depending upon your installation) echo 'ca 1'...

But that only seems to show the latest image as far as I can remember cam_pic.php returns a static image; cam_pic_new.php returns a stream. My (imperfect) understanding is that this is "the plain MJPEG stream". From the docs ...

The mp4 recordings (Just the recordings) are blurry. The images are not.

I haven't got a blur image effect enabled and the camera is in focus.
Interesting, I haven't seen anything like that. What are your video and still image resolutions set to? Can you post the contents of your uconfig file?
