Re: RPI zero usb otg not working

And immediately, using a separate usb keyboard, it magically starts working.

Thanks hardware gods !

RPI zero usb otg not working

I've tried 2 types of otg cables with the pi zero, and they both don't work. The cables were tested against another android device and they work fine. So is this a question of drivers or something else?

Re: In motioneye how to change the brightness on raspberry pi cam

Those above commands should be added into the "extra motion options" in the video device panel. You can also change framerate settings directly in the camera-1.conf to set framerates higher than provided by the ui.

Re: In motioneye how to change the brightness on raspberry pi cam

So in /opt/vc/include/interface/mmal/mmal_parameters_camera.h there exists an enum with MMAL_PARAMETER_BRIGHTNESS. Looking at conf.c of motion, and config_params , it recommends searching through the raspivid/raspistill documentation. And it appears the command to use for an mmalcam is mmalcam_contr...

Re: In motioneye how to change the brightness on raspberry pi cam

It seems like using mmalcam_name vc.ril.camera, causes the other options to not work. I've looked for some mmalcam options, does anyone know where to get a comprehensive list?

Re: In motioneye how to change the brightness on raspberry pi cam

Also, the brightness keyword works if motion is started as is from the command line, but when using meyectl, for some reason, the brightness cannot be altered. I've altered motionctl.py in def start: to load from the new camera-1.conf file, bypassing the checks on the camera configuration, and motio...

Re: How to change the brightness on raspberry pi cam

Changed motion from 4.2.2 to 4.2.1. And that didn't work. Tried triaging commands in motioneye.conf, motion.conf and camera-1.conf. It seems like changing the camera directive in motion.conf from say camera camera-1.conf to camera camera-test.conf causes motioneye to not start motion at all. Changin...

In motioneye how to change the brightness on raspberry pi cam

I'm running motion 4.2.2. using motioneye. In the camera configuration i use vid_control_params brightness=280 --- an extreme value -- just to see if the captured images change. I've also tried v4l2-ctl -c brightness=290 on the command line to change the brightness. These commands don't work to chan...

Re: motion configuration for framerates

After trying out pikrellcam, motioneye, rpiwebcam, it seems like all the saved videos are never 30 fps. Only raspivid encodes a video file that is 30 fps. Is there any way to get a full 30 fps video ?

motion configuration for framerates

I've tried a few different configuration options but the saved mp4 files are always not 24-30 fps even with framerate 30 or 40 set in the camera config. How can motion be configured to produce a smooth video ? Is it an issue with motion not being able to buffer everything? Raspivid on the hand can p...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

It looks like the raspimjpeg.c resides in the roberttidey github userland repo. Unfortunately, i just found out linux builds have always been non reproducible, so compiling a version of raspimjpeg cannot confirm that the raspimjpeg that is in the silvanmelchior github bin directory is the same as th...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

It appears the raspiberrypi/userland doesn't have the RaspiMJPEG.c at all. The silvanmelchior/userland has RaspiMJPEG.c but the version of that is 4.2.3. The version compiled for RPi_Cam_Web_Interface is 5.8.17. Where is the repository for this?

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

I've recompiled a version of raspimjpeg from the userland git repo, and used the buildme to build a version. When i strace raspimjpeg, the /etc/raspimjpeg gets opened and read, but raspimjpeg is saying various commands in /etc/raspimjpeg is unknown. Why would it do that? There are no tags in the rep...

I've compiled a version of the userland git to get a raspimjpeg, but on starting, it complains about various wrong settings in the config file.

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

A question about the raspimjpeg:

I've tried echo -n 'ca 1' to the FIFO, and the subsequent 'ca 0' , but raspimjpeg doesn't write out any media files. How can i go about getting this to work?

Getting motion to work with >=24 fps

Hi, i'm trying to get motion to work at >=24 fps with a raspi noir cam, to be accessed by a shinobi ce system elsewhere via http or rtsp. For some reason, accessing the motion stream from another machine's web browser, the frame rate is not fast enough, even with the setting 'framerate 100'. What ar...
