Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Latest version has added startstop.sh macro. THis is called during start with command line parameter 'start' and during close down with command line parameter 'stop'. An example startstop.sh macro is included in the macros folder which does a check at start up for any left over .h264 files and conv...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

The watchdog is looking for the preview stream jpg file to be regularly updated. If that stops for more than the watchdog interval then that triggers the watchdog process. The intention here is to use the preview stream to check that the camera interfacing is functioning normally. Stopping of the s...

My green RPi light usually flashes too and is quite normal - it just indicates SD card activity.

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Hi Robert, Now that some of my cameras are continuously recording, I've noticed that they occasionally have watchdog reset errors that stops video recording. I can start the video again automatically by entering "ca 1" in the "Period Start" field within "Edit Schedule Settings" which works well, but...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Quavoce, Thank you for the good walk-through on how to set up a self-signed cert! Did you ever post a detailed account of setting an official authority cert for your domain as well as setting up the PHP Userform Login? If not I'd be very interested in one or if there is a good tutorial out there, l...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

I'm wondering what the process would be to create a page that watches streams from two (or more) pi cameras running on the same wireless at-home router but in different locations. I use IP Cam View Pro on my phone to watch multiple video streams at the same time: http://elinux.org/RPi-Cam-Web-Inter...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Thanks for the settings. I'll change over to those. The differences are I am using a faster split period in attempt to stress it more and a smaller width. The other difference is that my test was on a full Jessie, although I doubt whether that is significant. I'll prepare another SD card with lates...

I am checking into this and have set up a test environment. This is on a Pi3, with monitor mode on and video split set to 20 seconds. So far it has been running for nearly two hours without problems. I may need to change things around to try to get it to fail in same way. So a few question /request...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Hi Robert, I think there's a bug with Monitor mode and the Video Split feature. If I enable Monitor mode and set Video Split to say 120, then press Record Video Start, the recording stops at the end of the first split. If I then change the mode back to Internal and start recording again, the video ...

Hmm, something's not quite right here as I left it running with video split at 10 mins (motion detection off), but around 30 mins ago it stopped for some reason.

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Thank you Robert for this useful feature - I'm hoping to set my Pi recording all day using this! During normal motion detection, video recordings are started and motion detection continues to work by prolonging the recordings if movement still occurs. This indicates that motion detection is still p...

The latest version now has a video split capability. Under camera settings there is a new setting called video split. If this is 0 then behaviour is as before with continuous recording between a video start and stop. If set non-zero then the recording will be stopped and restarted at this interval ...
