Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

See modinfo bcm2835-v4l2, especially parameters max_video_width and max_video_height. They determine the resolution limit between video mode and stills mode. motionEyeOS has max_video_width=2592 max_video_height=1944 which will practically always force video mode. Has anyone encountered the followin...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

You have that "[sendmail] ERROR: timeout waiting for the media listing process to finish" message which clearly states what's going on: you simply have too many media files and motionEyeOS cannot finish parsing all of them in time. The solution is to keep your media directory clean by preserving one...

There's no start/stop recording command (yet). If your files don't get removed after the time you have set, please send me your log files. Is there as command I could run from a SSH session that would start (and stop) the motion detection? I have an init script that ping regularly defined smartphone...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Hi Mikiya,

Yes, normally all models of RPi will use motion-mmal if (and only if) there's one single camera and that is a bcm2835-v4l2-based camera. However from my experience I haven't seen any perceivable experience between using motion-mrdave and motion-mmal.

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

There's no way to control motion detection, yet. It is planned though, but I haven't had too much time to work in motionEye(OS) lately. Moreover, various other bug reports and minor feature requests have piled up and I really need to take care of those first. Hi I'm new to MotionEyeOS and must say y...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Port 80 is for the web interface and port 8081 is for MJPEG streaming. None of them is hardcoded - both can be changed through the UI. Normally all you need is to forward to port 80. However, if you want to access the MJPEG stream directly (i.e. without a surrounding frame or the UI), you'll need to...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Port forwarding is a thing that lies entirely on the router side and cannot be affected by any software update on the local device. Are you sure you have configured port forwarding for the correct internal IP address and to the correct port? Depending on the way you configured your motionEye, you ma...

Dear motionPie users, motionPie has been renamed to motionEyeOS and lives now at https://github.com/ccrisan/motioneyeos . The reasons for renaming the project include: * preventing the missassociation with the Raspberry PI (motionEyeOS now supports 5 different boards) * avoiding name confusions gene...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Most of the changes are bug fixes and performance improvements; there's nothing that's ground-breaking. The main reason why you should update your motionEye to 0.25 is the incompatibility with older versions. There's no seamless update. What you can do is to backup your existing installation, downlo...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Hi, There's no easy way you could use motionPie as an access point. The reason is that motionPie is designed to work with most of the network adapters and the majority of them don't work in AP mode. Or, if they do, the AP mode is unstable. For now, the only solution is to use a wireless router or a ...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

You don't seem to use motionPie, but rather motionEye with Raspbian. If the add device dialog does not list any device, there's no v4l device detected by your Raspberry PI. If you use the Raspberry PI camera, you forgot to modprobe bcm2835-v4l2. If you use another USB camera, it either isn't support...

Yes, you're better off using a separate machine with motionEye. Soon motionPie for RPi will have a special feature called "Fast Network Camera" that will make use of the GPU to encode the MJPEG stream.

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

MotionPie is the OS itself. It has nothing to do with Raspbian and cannot be "installed" on any other OS. If you need DDNS, you could simply request the URL using wget or curl. The code could be placed in cron - there's cron support in the latest version, I just did not find the time to document it....
