Also, the brightness keyword works if motion is started as is from the command line, but when using meyectl, for some reason, the brightness cannot be altered.
I've altered motionctl.py in
to load from the new camera-1.conf file, bypassing the checks on the camera configuration, and motion adjusts the brightness. For some reason, either one of the commands generated in the camera-1.conf permanently sets the brightness on the camera or motioneye filters the camera settings. I'm leaning towards motion having specific configuration settings.
I need to change the brightness to enable night time use. Anyone have any clues?
