Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

How can I redirect the video output and the entire web interface to my custom website url instead of it being on http://ipAddress:port/subfolder? That's a DNS and routing issue, and it's quite a bit beyond the scope of this forum/topic. But if you're trying to make it accessible to the outside worl...

Your string formatting isn't right in the annotate.write command. Try something like:

Code: Select all

annotate.write ('temp = {}'.format((data*0.02) - 273.15))

Is there a way to restart the camera process from the CLI after it has crashed WITHOUT rebooting? if start.sh doesn't restart it, I don't know if there's a way to do it without rebooting. Do you know why it's crashing in the first place? I've got systems that run for weeks/months with no interventi...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

just a short reply: starting all over again with the most recent raspbian lite buster and not using sudo while starting install.sh solved the issue. Thanks for the hint Glad it's working! I'm not sure why sudo messes it up, but it's easy to trip over - I'll open a Github issue to either fix the pro...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

I looked at the documentation section 3.4.1 "How do I change the path for video images and pictures" and that suggested a bind mount. However a bind mount still updates the files on the original location (just providing a duplicate on a second mount point). So I thought I would set up a mount point...

Hi, I am running this software on a RPi Zero, the stream is fantastic but is it possible to also display the live preview in 1080 or 720 at the same time through the HDMI port? You can't send the stream directly to the HDMI port. Workaround is to install a desktop environment, open up a browser, an...

I'm not sure what you're after - if you want to start a recording from the command line you can do it with:

Code: Select all

echo ca 1 > FIFO11
You'll also have to stop it in some appropriate way, of course.

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Thank you for your answer ras07. The purpose of the project is not to capture videos but simply to monitor the henhouse. During the day, the image is saturated and at night, despite an infrared lamp, the image is too dark. So ISO must be low by day and high by night. Unless there is another way, su...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

I'd recommend starting off with shell scripts rather than Python. If you are using the built-in motion capture system, you can then use the end_box macro (in the System settings) to do whatever post-processing you want. See https://elinux.org/RPi-Cam-Web-Interface#Job_Macros for more details. Thank...
