OSMC and Motion - Need Help!

Hi,

I’ve installed OSMC Alpha 2, it works very well.
Now, i’d like to use my webcam as a control http webcam (Microsoft LifeCam VX-800).
I’ve used motion on rasbian distro but with OSMC, i’ve got some difficulties to use it.

For now, i’ve addes Jessie repo from debian to my sources.list
I’ve installed motion and all dependecies. I’ve installed usbutils to see if my webcam is available and it’s ok.

I’ve configured the motion http server port on 8081, and when i start motion service, my webcam led is not swithced on and i can’t access it from http.

Could you help me please ?

Kernel is probably missing V4L2 and support for your device. I will add greater driver compatibility later.

Sam

My Logitech C170 webcam is not working on Motion.
Please Help!

for FreeBSD default is /dev/bktr0

videodevice /dev/video0

v4l2_palette allows to choose preferable palette to be use by motion

to capture from those supported by your videodevice. (default: 8)

E.g. if your videodevice supports both V4L2_PIX_FMT_SBGGR8 and

V4L2_PIX_FMT_MJPEG then motion will by default use V4L2_PIX_FMT_MJPEG.

Setting v4l2_palette to 1 forces motion to use V4L2_PIX_FMT_SBGGR8

instead.

Values :

V4L2_PIX_FMT_SN9C10X : 0 ‘S910’

V4L2_PIX_FMT_SBGGR8 : 1 ‘BA81’

1.1: Use HTTP/1.1 requests that support keep alive as default.

Default: 1.0

; netcam_http 1.0

URL to use for a netcam proxy server, if required, e.g. “http://myproxy”.

If a port number other than 80 is needed, use “http://myproxy:1234”.

Default: not defined

; netcam_proxy value

Set less strict jpeg checks for network cameras with a poor/buggy firmware.

Default: off

netcam_tolerant_check off

Let motion regulate the brightness of a video device (default: off).

The auto_brightness feature uses the brightness option as its target value.

If brightness is zero auto_brightness will adjust to average brightness value 128.

Recommended value is EedDl. Any combination (and number of) of E, e, d, and D is valid.

(l)abeling must only be used once and the ‘l’ must be the last letter.

Comment out to disable

despeckle EedDl

Detect motion in predefined areas (1 - 9). Areas are numbered like that: 1 2 3

A script (on_area_detected) is started immediately when motion is 4 5 6

detected in one of the given areas, but only once during an event. 7 8 9

One or more areas can be specified with this option. (Default: not defined)

; area_detect value

PGM file to use as a sensitivity mask.

Full path name to. (Default: not defined)

; mask_file value

Dynamically create a mask file during operation (default: 0)

Adjust speed of mask changes from 0 (off) to 10 (fast)

smart_mask_speed 0

Ignore sudden massive light intensity changes given as a percentage of the picture

area that changed intensity. Valid range: 0 - 100 , default: 0 = disabled

lightswitch 0

Picture frames must contain motion at least the specified number of frames

in a row before they are detected as true motion. At the default of 1, all

motion is detected. Valid range: 1 to thousands, recommended 1-5

minimum_motion_frames 1

Specifies the number of pre-captured (buffered) pictures from before motion

was detected that will be output at motion detection.

Recommended range: 0 to 5 (default: 0)

Do not use large values! Large values will cause Motion to skip video frames and

cause unsmooth mpegs. To smooth mpegs use larger values of post_capture instead.

pre_capture 0

Number of frames to capture after motion is no longer detected (default: 0)

post_capture 0

Gap is the seconds of no motion detection that triggers the end of an event

An event is defined as a series of motion images taken within a short timeframe.

Recommended value is 60 seconds (Default). The value 0 is allowed and disables

events causing all Motion to be written to one single mpeg file and no pre_capture.

gap 60

Maximum length in seconds of an mpeg movie

When value is exceeded a new mpeg file is created. (Default: 0 = infinite)

max_mpeg_time 0

Always save images even if there was no motion (default: off)

output_all off

############################################################

Image File Output

############################################################

Output ‘normal’ pictures when motion is detected (default: on)

When set to ‘first’, only the first picture of an event is saved.

Picture with most motion of an event is saved when set to ‘best’.

Picture with motion nearest center of picture is saved when set to ‘center’.

Can be used as preview shot for the corresponding movie.

output_normal on

Output pictures with only the pixels moving object (ghost images) (default: off)

output_motion off

The quality (in percent) to be used by the jpeg compression (default: 75)

quality 75

Output ppm images instead of jpeg (default: off)

ppm off

############################################################

FFMPEG related options

Film (mpeg) file output, and deinterlacing of the video input

The options movie_filename and timelapse_filename are also used

by the ffmpeg feature

############################################################

Use ffmpeg to encode mpeg movies in realtime (default: off)

ffmpeg_cap_new on

Use ffmpeg to make movies with only the pixels moving

object (ghost images) (default: off)

ffmpeg_cap_motion off

Use ffmpeg to encode a timelapse movie

Default value 0 = off - else save frame every Nth second

ffmpeg_timelapse 0

The file rollover mode of the timelapse video

Valid values: hourly, daily (default), weekly-sunday, weekly-monday, monthly, manual

ffmpeg_timelapse_mode daily

Bitrate to be used by the ffmpeg encoder (default: 400000)

This option is ignored if ffmpeg_variable_bitrate is not 0 (disabled)

ffmpeg_bps 500000

Enables and defines variable bitrate for the ffmpeg encoder.

ffmpeg_bps is ignored if variable bitrate is enabled.

Valid values: 0 (default) = fixed bitrate defined by ffmpeg_bps,

or the range 2 - 31 where 2 means best quality and 31 is worst.

ffmpeg_variable_bitrate 0

Codec to used by ffmpeg for the video compression.

Timelapse mpegs are always made in mpeg1 format independent from this option.

Supported formats are: mpeg1 (ffmpeg-0.4.8 only), mpeg4 (default), and msmpeg4.

mpeg1 - gives you files with extension .mpg

mpeg4 or msmpeg4 - gives you files with extension .avi

msmpeg4 is recommended for use with Windows Media Player because

it requires no installation of codec on the Windows client.

swf - gives you a flash film with extension .swf

flv - gives you a flash video with extension .flv

ffv1 - FF video codec 1 for Lossless Encoding ( experimental )

mov - QuickTime ( testing )

ffmpeg_video_codec swf

Use ffmpeg to deinterlace video. Necessary if you use an analog camera

and see horizontal combing on moving objects in video or pictures.

(default: off)

ffmpeg_deinterlace off

Thread config files - One for each camera.

Except if only one camera - You only need this config file.

If you have more than one camera you MUST define one thread

config file for each camera in addition to this config file.

##############################################################

Remember: If you have more than one camera you must have one

thread file for each camera. E.g. 2 cameras requires 3 files:

This motion.conf file AND thread1.conf and thread2.conf.

Only put the options that are unique to each camera in the

thread config files.

; thread /usr/local/etc/thread1.conf
; thread /usr/local/etc/thread2.conf
; thread /usr/local/etc/thread3.conf
; thread /usr/local/etc/thread4.conf
