Hi there, as title states I’m having issues recording videos using the raspberry pi camera.
I have a custom menu item on the default skin with two submenu options - Photo and Video
When you select photo, this runs a python script with the following:
os.system(’/opt/vc/bin/raspistill -t 3000 -o /home/osmc/Pictures/
date +%d%m%Y_%H%M-%S.png --annotate 12’)
This saves a photo in a specific folder with the name formatted as the date and time. This works perfectly by both using the menu item and executing the python script in the terminal and via ssh.
The video option runs a similar script:
os.system(’/opt/vc/bin/raspivid -t 60000 -rot 90 -hf -o /home/osmc/Videos/
date +%d%m%Y_%H%M.mp4 --annotate 12’)
This script works perfectly when executing via ssh and the terminal, but when executed via the menu item two strange things happen:
1 - The video doesn’t save a file
2 - The bottom left of the camera view on-screen is jittery, and kind of lags behind the rest of the view. Kind of like a rolling shutter effect.
I understand this might be a strange issue but I’d really like to use OSMC for this project so I don’t want to have to use some other OS, none are as smooth or as well tuned as OSMC.
