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

So I'm having an issue. I have two cameras, both running the interface. I have multi view set up fine, and I also have an external HDD attached to one of the cameras, but I can't figure out how to use the fstab bind to bind the directory of stored video to my external HDD. I'm sort of a noobie when...

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'...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Have you tried http://my.ip.add.ress/cam/cam_pic_new.php ? I have indeed. 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 ...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

I have several wildlife cams set up outside, within a wifi range that give me adequate (but not stellar) throughput. One viewer can watch the live feed at HD resolution with no problems, but if three or four browsers/devices are trying to watch simultaneously it gets stuttery. I'd like to figure out...

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?

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

How do I change the path where the images are saved. The wiki isn't the clearest on this. Look for the File Locations section in /etc/raspimjpeg ; these are the settings you need to change. base_path is the install directory (default is /var/www/html but could be different depending on how you inst...

Re: No connection from outside world

The rpi_cam_web_interface is running well, but only on my internal ip address currently set on http://192.168.1.170:3638 . As you can see I've defined a port as 3638. I have configured my router to forward to this port 3638. However, when I try to access my external ip with this port, it can't find...

@emphillips18 - I'm doing something very similar; I'm using the macros to accomplish this. One example: edit (or create) the end_box.sh script in the /var/www/html/macros directory to add following: #!/bash/bin echo 'md 0' > /var/www/html/FIFO sleep 600 echo 'md 1' > /var/www/html/FIFO Some caveats:...

Is there a way to make the default user level (when there is no login required) something other than the highest level? My ultimate goal is to grant access level 2 to anybody with no login required, and then be able to log in and get access level 6. I think the latter is doable by setting up a separ...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Why does the apparent zoom change when you change the resolution? Full HD 1080p looks more "zoomed in" than 720p. If anything, I'd expect it to be the other way around.

Is there a way to "zoom out" the 1080p view to get as wide a field of view as the 720p setting?

Re: Special-case power requirements

Well this is interesting ... I put a 10V, 1500µf capacitor across the wire, and it's been running fine for close to an hour. If I remove the capacitor while the system is running it crashes (not immediately, but within a minute or two). At the moment I'm not even using the 7805; I'm just going from ...

Re: Special-case power requirements

It seems there's something going on that's caused by the wire. I have a power supply that puts out 5.2V and 2A. When I run that power supply to the wire and then to a different Pi Zero W with no peripherals and nothing but a fresh install of Stretch Lite, the Pi goes into a reboot cycle (starts as n...

Re: SSH Tunnel and port forwarding question

Short answer: it's secure. Longer explanation: everything over SSH is encrypted. If you think of protocols are tubes that connect the internet together, think of SSH tunneling as a smaller tube inside a larger tube. To extend the analogy, think of encryption as paint that makes a normally clear tube...

Re: Special-case power requirements

Yeah, the 7805 is a poor choice; it's just what I had on hand. I've got a buck converter on order. I also misspoke on the wire gauge; it is 16 AWG, so 40' shouldn't drop more than a tenth of a volt or so. The LEDs are throttled way down with 250 ohm resistors (don't need much output to illuminate 12...
