I've tried 2 releases and 2 different sd cards..
How fast was boot to first picture ?

Running on Model B. Got a brief green on OK LED and then the rainbow screen, Momentary green on FDX and then nothing for over 30 minutes - still on rainbow screen and no visible activity. Plugged into powered USB hub - keyboard & mouse. Nothing in USB. HDMI connected that works for normal Pi connection.
Removed USB hub - same thing
Ah makes sense when you explain it like that,ccrisan wrote:Hi,
The reason the rainbow never disappears is that there's no video driver compiled in at all. However things should work "in the background" and your PI should listen on port 80 within a minute or two
You should know that better than me because you more familiar with this stuff. I am gambling around with SilvanMelchior's software since 7 months. This one is more like a firmware of a netcam. For sure I will change because it's more reliable and the programmer is doing continious improvements. Try it and you will find the difference.jbeale wrote:Does this custom build do anything that the RPi camera interface from Silvanmelchior does not? Faster boot time, more reliable, other features?
Let us know your results. I have found a Google Chrome app named CCTV View. If you have serveral cameras you can easily see the stream of each camera in you standard browser window. A small icon is showing that the app is installed and with one click you will see the camera stream.sav25 wrote:This looks great - will have a go myself this weekend
No need to set up FTP as it is already built in.RichShumaker wrote: I will be adding FTP via SSH so I can keep files local to the Pi and easily transfer them to another system.
Hi Rich,RichShumaker wrote:OMG and Awesome.
10 minute setup and you have a surveillance camera / system.
Thanks for building this ccrisan.
It is super awesomeness that is easy, fast, fun, and incredible
Multiple cameras on the same screen automagically is perfect.
Web setup is great and I think anyone could handle it.
I have been using RPi Cam Web Interface and it has more features like full sensor video recording but it certainly not this easy and I thought it was bulletproof easy.
I will be adding FTP via SSH so I can keep files local to the Pi and easily transfer them to another system.
The web interface is good for a few images or videos for me but not great to try to get them all at once.
I will probably shift to a NAS for direct recording to avoid having to FTP in the future.
Funny enough I just saw a dropcam advertisement on TV and thought the Pi is better and cheaper.
Are you still developing this? Can we add ideas to the github?
Yep I saw that and again I say awesome.ccrisan wrote: If you don't want to keep media files on the SD card, check out the "network share" option for the storage device. It can place the files on any local network share through SMB. It should work with most NASes available these days.

Here are some suggestions after playing with it for a while:
- Automatic Brightness: It behaves strange in low light situations (flickers between dark and bright) - if you turn it off it keeps staying in some random state (too dark or too bright). Some more control like the RPi Cam Web Interface has would be great.
- Streaming: I have problems getting streaming to work with IP Cam Viewer (iphone) - Anyone tried that?
- Capturing video during the night: It would be nice to have a lower framerate/longer exposure stream
- A reboot option would be nice to have
- Motion Detection: An easy way of defining keepout/include areas would be great
- A way to turn off the Cam LED
