If you edit the config.txt file and put this in it should work.
disable_camera_led=1

Is it possible to rename / rearrange the video file name from motion detection? I would like to have the file's date be in: DD-MM-YYYY instead of the YYYY-MM-DD now.
Thanks in advance :)

Update: Never mind, I figured it out. Had to recompile RaspiMJPEG on the Pi with the edited time/date in the C code.

Is this thread dead?

I'm only reading newbie's problems here for weeks now. Where are silvanmelchior and james? Did the development of the project stop? Or what's happening in the backend? Maybe the efforts headed to another project/thread as it has been with mjpeg-streamer towards raspimjpeg?

Thanks,

I've had this set up for a few months now and it works very well. The only problem I'm having is even though my settings are for 1080p, when I set them in the web GUI and press 'OK' the settings disappear. The image that the camera displays is much smaller. When I run the image through MediaInfo it says: 512x288.
Is there anyway I can force it?
I had a look in the raspimjpeg config and it's set on 1080p for video although there is a line that says 512 just under preview. I changed this to 1920 and it never made every difference.

Am I doing something wrong?

IIRC you can change the displayed preview size in /etc/rc.local.

Is there any way we could get some sort of a heartbeat indicator on screen? Occasionally pi may lockup and I cant tell looking at the screen. Any thoughts?

First off, what a great program. Followed the instructions at the beginning of this thread and it worked the first time. I have two questions.

1. If I use some of the web page links or buttons, the pi locks up. I have to unplug to reboot. Anybody have that issue and know how to fix it?

2. Where are the videos saved? I would like to be able to FTP into and download the videos to a separate device like my phone.

Possibly power issue? I had a problem with that as well. Also try reverting to different firmware. There is a post about that back a few pages.

The files are saved in /var/www/media, which you could redirect to a different location if you want.

Smells more like a wrong phpBB config.

93.93.128.176 is not the regular forum, but seems to run a complete copy. It seems to belong to the foundation's hosting (Mythic Beasts). Development server?

Yes, if it would be a 'scam' email there should be some 'scamming' inside somewhere... Best send a PM to a moderator, don't panic.

1. Something doesn't play nice with the latest camera firmware and raspimjpeg, so run the command from the wiki link below to go back to a slightly older version to make the buttons work again: http://elinux.org/RPi-Cam-Web-Interface ... a_Firmware

I think Silvan has reached a point where he's happy with the code. He's said a few times early on that's he's very busy and doesn't have much time to work on this project I'm afraid. Silvan has also tried to fix the problem with the latest camera firmware, spending most of a day without luck.

In reality I think we just need someone who's interested in developing it further. I know it could do with a really good web developer to spruce up the interface as well, so he's put all the code on github for others to edit who have the time. :)

I suspect 1920 is too large - I change this to 800 for example (to make 800x600) on mine and it makes the preview window larger. (you have to stop and start the process for it to take effect)

Code: Select all

/RPi_Cam_Web_Interface_Installer.sh stop
/RPi_Cam_Web_Interface_Installer.sh start
Also bear in mind that the displayed video stream is just a preview - when you take a picture or record a video using the buttons, it does them in full resolution as determined elsewhere in the /etc/raspimjpeg config file.

I increased the power to the pi and got better results with the web interface. I may still have to go back and test with the previous firmware. next question. How can you view the video? most players will not play the files. My S4 will but others can not. I would like to convert with my phone if possible but can also handle doing it on the pi.

I think I'm going wrong because the CCTV application that records jpg images is capturing http://192.168.0.191/cam.jpg

So this means I'm capturing the preview image?

How can set this program up so it starts automatically when it boots and produces a HD image (720p or 1080p) on a link like above?

If I copy the files manually from Github, where should I put them on RPi?
