How does MotionEye work?

Sun Apr 21, 2019 10:26 pm

This appears to be the best video on setting up a video network using MotionEye.

This tutorial has "How to set up multiple network Raspberry Pi security cameras"

My results on a Raspberry Pi 3B+:
1) A loop that looks for a network.
2) After adding Ethernet cable it says point your browser to the IP address.
No IP address was found, Reported address meye-c44cdf04 did not respond on browser.
3) Display said login so I typed admin with no password.
Nothing significant happened.

My current thinking on how to fix it
1) Since it fails to show an IP address in the display or in Win10 cmd IPconfig shows nothing on the Ethernet connection, I cannot fall back to Raspbian because MotionEye is an OS download.
2) Downloading the MotionEye source code could lead to a solution, perhaps if I also got source for a few other bits to weave in.
3) Since the RPi 3BB+ has 4 cores, it should be possible to run Raspbian on one or more of them while running MotionEye on one.

Anyone have better or quicker ideas on how to make a video network? Would the same motionEyeOS chip work better on another RPi?

Sorry, I've never used MotionEyeOS, so can't help. There are people here who might have been able to, but it is a long weekend here with four days off work for most people, so they will be doing other things.

Also the tone of your other post will have put some people off ever wanting to help you.

Thanks for actual help.
You have been spewing insults at this community over the last 24 hours or so and expect anyone to give you any help?

Have you read the Wiki?

Bill's page show hows his works.

And this one has 198 pages on the Pi forum for the OP to read

All three have Pi forum posts
I use the first two.
Download the images, copy to SD card, stick them in and they just work for me. ... the_Bazaar
The Raspberry Pi forums are attended to by "high" priests of Linux, Youtube is the Bazaar?
Read the Dedications of that Linux Bible before poo pooing it, not exactly written by heathens.
Look in the back index for "ifconfig" many pages.
