You can use motion without motion detection. You set a couple of switches in /etc/motion/motion.conf:

Code: Select all

output_pictures off
and

Code: Select all

ffmpeg_output_movies off
I'm doing exactly what you want to do with a webcam and the standard version of motion.

I have those options off already. But the motion detection engine still runs, the software still evaluates every image for motion, it just doesn't write anything to disk. When I relaunch with those settings, the pixel counter in the mjpeg stream still shows the number of changed pixels and the config interface under Detection > Status still shows "ACTIVE".

I checked and saw that with Detection set to PAUSE in the web config interface, motion's CPU load drops about 10 percentage points. Since I have some other tasks running and the Zero isn't that powerful to begin with, it'd be nice to be able to launch it this way, instead of manually turning Detection off in the config interface every time.

And yea, still curious about the server and log questions if anyone knows. Thanks!

See what happens when you take advice from a newbie? So, not only did I not help you resolve your problem, I found out from you there's a way to turn off motion detection completely. I thank you for that. The only problem for me is I don't see that particular switch in my config file. I'm using the unmodified motion without support for the Pi cam, so I'm wondering if that's only in the version you are using.

I was able to install motion on wheezy as well as jessy but had problems with my USB. Therefore, I had to start from scratch - and now it does not work anymore. Unfortunately, my error messages are not very helpful:

How sure are you that you don't have power problems? I'd suggest trying a powered hub for the cam, or at least a 2 amp power supply for the Pi.

Hi all, I am using camera module v2 and RPi 3
I have install the motion MMAL provided by @lowflyer and have configured the localhost stream to off...

but when i view in my browser (chrome) through ipaddr:8081, browser returns "This site can't be reached"

Anyone could solve my problem? Thanks!!

@lowflyer - I've been following the installation of motion outlined here; viewtopic.php?p=864996#p864996 but I keep running into a problem similar to one posted here already.

./motion: error while loading shared libraries: libpq.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

When I try to apt-get the above using sudo apt-get install -y libpq5 libpq-dev I get this bunch of errors:

I'm running a fresh, updated install of Raspbian Jessie on a Pi B+ and a Noir v2 camera.

Any help would be much appreciated - I've been going in circles for a couple of days now.

Re: Motion - MMAL camera

Sat Oct 29, 2016 11:34 pm

I'd like to run two cameras on one Pi 3. One is a noir v2 and the other is USB webcam. The Pi 3 is currently running lowflyer's Motion MMAL with just the noir v2 and it's fine.

So when I go to make the threadX.conf files, I'm stuck at naming the videodevice for the noir v2 cam. The USB cam shows up in /dev as video0 .... so what is the path/name to the noir v2?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I have a problem with motion on jessy on a Raspi3. First I tried uv4l together with motion but got a load-average of about 6 (because I was using the full resolution of the camera). Then, I installed twice the new raspi-image together with a complete new system (including update, upgrade and rpi-update) and only motion-mmalcam, nothing more. But I am not able to start the software. I always get an error message like

Re: Motion - MMAL camera

Tue Nov 29, 2016 9:25 am

First of all i like to thank dozencrow for his awesome work!

My question or problem is that i want to upload motion triggered videos to dropbox, but it didnt worked out for me.
I tried it with the dropbox-Uploader and with a python script. I got connect via the dropbox-uploader so i could upload a test file, but it wouldnt upload motion triggered videos. i got so confused because i tried it really hard the last days...

For the Dropbox-Uploader i used this site : https://learn.adafruit.com/cloud-cam-co ... opbox-sync
For Python-script i used this site: https://mogshade.wordpress.com/2012/12/ ... nd-dropbox

Hope somebody can help me

Not sure this is related, but I wrote a python script to send and email when motion starts recording a video. It worked fine until I added logging and then it simply stopped sending emails. Commented the logging out and it started working again. Haven't tried chasing this one down yet but maybe one day I will.

Ok, i found the problem, it was "just" a wrong parameter set in the motion-mmalcam.conf .

It's just odd that this doesn't work anymore. Last night I had Ubuntu and it worked, though the OS was acting slow and choppy, so I formatted SD and switched over to Rasbian-Jesse.img.

[[UPDATE]]

Alrighty, so I got my camera module to work by inserting bcm2835-v4l2 into /etc/modules , and the camera at least gets activated, as in the red led light shows up, however, will not take the picture, here is the output...

@lowflyer, first thank you very much. It works flawlessly.
I just want it to configure with cron to start every morning at 7 am and end at 15 pm.
What are the commands to do it? how to make it happen?

Thanks again

It should work if you do this:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install -y libjpeg-dev libavformat56 libavformat-dev libavcodec56 libavcodec-dev libavutil54 libavutil-dev libc6-dev zlib1g-dev libmysqlclient18 libmysqlclient-dev libpq5 libpq-dev

tar -zxvf motion-mmal-lowflyerUK-20151114.tar.gz

./motion -c motion-mmalcam-both.conf
Hope it works also for you. I just tested it using a fresh SDcard with jessie lite on an old Pi - and it is the same binary that I tested a few weeks ago on a Pi 2 with the full version of jessie.

I look forward to hearing how you get on with it.

If you can you should learn about how to download and compile code from github. This works for me:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install -y libjpeg-dev libavformat56 libavformat-dev libavcodec56 libavcodec-dev libavutil54 libavutil-dev libc6-dev zlib1g-dev libmysqlclient18 libmysqlclient-dev libpq5 libpq-dev

sudo apt-get install git
sudo apt-get install cmake
git clone https://github.com/raspberrypi/userland
git clone https://github.com/lowflyerUK/motion.git
cd motion/
git checkout mmal-test
USERLANDPATH=/home/pi/userland cmake .
make
After a while you should have a newly created binary "motion" in the directory also called "motion". You can run it with:

Code: Select all

/home/pi/motion/motion -c /home/pi/motion/configs/motion-mmalcam-both.conf
You may well have to adjust the config file for your needs.

Good luck!

Re: Motion - MMAL camera

I'm running stock motion with a pi camera without any problems. The only change I needed to make to the system is to load the bcm2835-v4l2 driver at startup. Is there any reason to use the motion-mmal version?

I did this as well, but I am upable to get the streaming server working. Does it work for you?

Yes it does. Make sure you have this set correctly:

Code: Select all

# Restrict stream connections to localhost only (default: on)
stream_localhost off

Return to “Camera board”
