Re: Pi 2 webcam video not working

I had a go at doing the patch, but quickly reached the end of my computer talents :-(

I'll have to use the B until my Pi Camera comes!

Re: Pi 2 webcam video not working

Yes, it was the actual microSD card from the Rp1. It wasn't until I had the Rp2 running on a new card that I realised that the Rp1 card was a MicroSD! No updates have been done on the Rp2 after the camera has been tried. It appears to hang up at the v4l2 stage, giving various error messages, or some...

Re: Pi 2 webcam video not working

My recordings now seem to be working, but I don't think I've done anything to make them work. The recording scripts use avconv, whereas the streaming script uses gstreamer. I think avconv can be used for streaming, so I'm going to have a look at that. I tried the SD card from my 256mb Rpi, but the 2...

Pi 2 webcam video not working

I've been using an Xbox webcam on the original 256mb pi, recording with avconv and streaming with g-streamer, mjpg-streamer & motion. Last night, I changed to the Rpi 2, with a fresh Raspbian image, although I installed the same limbs & drivers as on the B, I can't record or stream video. Fswebcam w...

Re: Access point or separate router

Thanks. I've just checked my dongle & it's a 5370.

I'll try to get it set so it will run the AP if it can't find the home network.

Otherwise, I'll use a separate SD card for faraway imaging.

Access point or separate router

I've been working on a Raspi telescope camera. The Raspi (B but soon to be a 2) is powered by a Lipo phone charger with a USB camera in the telescope. I have a live view streamed to and Android phone for alignment and focussing. Control comes from some BASH scripts over SSH from an iPad. The Raspi r...

Re: Setting v4l2 in BASH

SOLVED

That is exactly what I wanted to do, but it kept crashing. It turned out that the brightness parameter couldn't be set when auto exposure was set. I was doing this on my pc, before transferring to the pi.

The v4l2 on the pc had auto exposure set.

Everything works find on the Raspberry Pi

Setting v4l2 in BASH

I'm trying to write a BASH script to enable setting adjustments in v4l2. This needs to be run via SSH, hence BASH. Reading the parameters from v4l2 is no problem, but I can't set parameters because BASH only uses string variables. The v4l2 parameter is set: v4l2-ctl --set-ctrl brightness=BR Where BR...

Re: HD video & Astro stacking

After a weekend playing about, I've now got a basic astro system working. Raspi B 256mb wifi over the home network. Xbox camera with IR filter removed, LED's destroyed and eyepiece adaptor. The camera was fitted to a Skywatcher 114sp telescope and the Raspi was powered by an Anker external smartphon...

HD video & Astro stacking

Can I combine both into one project? I currently use an xbox camera on my telescope, with a laptop to record the video for stacking, but the laptop is dying so I'm thinking of making a Raspi scope camera, with wifi streaming to Android device. I've seen some of the tutorials and already have the eye...

Re: Updating to the 2012-09-18-wheezy-raspbian image

I did the update and upgrade, set the overclock to turbo and everything ran fine. BUT Although it all works in the CLI, once the GUI is running, I lose keyboard and mouse. Reset the overclocking to none, but still no keyboard and mouse. 1000ma psu on a 7way hub with just the raspi and the keyboard/m...

Re: Automatic setup for RTL8188CUS based wifi adapters

Followed the instructions exactly, used a new raspbian image, tried it connected to the family tv, but had a few problems with different powered USB hubs. Switched to running the dongle directly into the Rpi, used SSH (stops family arguments) but using the sudo bash command. The script runs until it...

Re: Automatic setup for RTL8188CUS based wifi adapters

6 hours of messing around so far :-( I've been using the Rpi for a couple of months on an ethernet connection. Today I bought an Edimax EW-7811Un wifi dongle. Plenty of attempts to get it to work, including the install-rtl8188cus.sh script. After a bit of hair pulling, I made a new 8gb SD img of whe...
