Running Python script while recording using Web Inteface?

Tue May 26, 2015 12:01 pm

I am using RPI Webinterface : https://github.com/silvanmelchior/RPi_Cam_Web_Interface for monitoring my cameras and it works great. I want to record a video but my script is bit too complicated and is in python. Can I have the control to modify how the recording is done once I click the start recording button? I want to custom output another file while recording etc.

What do you mean by "Can I have the control to modify how the recording is done once I click the start recording button?" You can control raspimjpeg (the heart of RPi Cam Web Interface) with commands that are written into a pipe as described in the wiki: http://elinux.org/RPi-Cam-Web-Interface
