Re: PHP/Bootstrap Web Interface for the Pi Camera

Ok, this worked after doing:

sudo mount -o remount,rw /boot

and then editing /boot/config.txt

Does this increase the GPU pipeline depth and trade FPS for latency?

I'm not familiar with the effects of the allocation. What benefit(s) would more GPU memory have?

Re: PHP/Bootstrap Web Interface for the Pi Camera

I made sure to read through this whole thread, and it seems like the Pi3 is problematic, and it might not help that I was manually setting up my system instead of just using an off the shelf image. I can't get anything to show on port 80, I get a 502 gateway error. I don't think this is a Pi3-speci...

Re: PHP/Bootstrap Web Interface for the Pi Camera

However if I can make a suggestion, your instructions don't actually cover very basic things, such as which port the web service even runs on for initial configuration. Also, I followed the instructions on your installation script, however I want to use my Pi for other things, thus I skipped most o...

Hi, download version v1.7 from my project page at http://ronnyvdbr.github.io/RaspberryIPCamera/ Hi! I tried all 4 download links, and I'm not getting what I expected. 3 of the 4 links point towards files that are 423.8 MB in size, instead of the suggested 689 MB and the DropBox link 404s.

Re: Maximum DC input voltage for power?

a little late to this thread, but this is what PoE (along with the bastard relation of 24v DC) was made for. A TP-Link PoE that drops out a clean regulated 5V-2A is like $13 from amazon. LOL!

It's the Arducam module with a CS-mount lens. I believe it's a standard Pi camera module behind the lens.

Does the "NoIR" name bug the heck out of anyone else?

Or is it just me? In this backasswards nomenclature, the "NoIR" camera has no IR blocking filter, so it is sensitive to IR light. The standard "IR" camera has the IR blocking filter, so it is _not_ sensitive to IR light. So one should use the "NoIR" camera to see IR and the "IR" camera to avoid seei...

Thanks! The buck converter doesn't ship to the US, so I bought the EZSBC version rzusman linked originally.

Re: Maximum DC input voltage for power?

What you are doing is a terrible idea! Run 12v, and use a regulator at the Pi end. Doing anything else is just begging to end up with a dead Pi. A voltage regulator is the size of a postage stamp - If you have room for the Pi, you have room for one. http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-Terminal-5V-1A-Switchin...

Think theNoir Camera could get more FPS then the normal one? Considering I might add IR LED around it. It'll do 90fps I think, in the right mode. Low light performance won't be great.
