    so currently I have:

    motionEye Version 0.40
    Motion Version 4.1.1
    OS Version Raspbian 10

    I haven't done any custom mods or something like that..

    If it helps, I can give you access to my server

    @kleini
    Sorry, I don't like to have access to your server. I am using the Docker images, making these installations problems completely obsolete.

    @KarlBaumann
    In my case Docker would not solve anything :) thanks anyway
    Marcus Klein
    @kleini
    At least it solves all installation problems with motioneye.

    Hello all...how do i change the order of my cameras?

    Hi all.

    I already have a working motion install including motion.conf (and camera conf files). motionEye seems to be ignoring my existing motion.conf (even after changing conf dir to /etc/motion where motion.conf and conf.d/camera?.conf files exist).

    Can motionEye using existing motion.conf files?

    Hello everyone. I have more than one motioneyeos on pi zero(s) and I want to show/hide each one from another (pi3) - I am wracking my brains how to do this. I tried selenium but it 'hangs' on the connection to the first motioneye, unable to move to another url
    this is for an exhibition and I am really getting desperate! Please help.

    ding dong! :D good day
    i get just blank picture on the camera no matter what device i use, how should i debug the cam? i dont know if it should work or not, and before i use a raspbian i thought i can debug with motioneyeos

    ok! now i made it work, but so many things still awkward 8-D
    its not recording prper, start to late, stopping to early

    https://www.python.org/doc/sunset-python-2/ Python 2 will not receive security fixes any more in 2020. Will start to work on Docker images for ccrisan/motioneye#1215

    Hi @ccrisan . I found out a bug trying to add my HiKam S6 Camera. It uses rtsp and i was not able to add it. i always got the error "timeout connecting to rtsp netcam". I looked through ur sourcecode and found out, that the connect uses the parameter MJPG_CLIENT_TIMEOUT in motioneye config file. In my case it was set to 0. but zero means in this case really 0, i changed it to 10 and now everything works as expected. Took me half a day ;) Was thinking of my ubuntu, motion or network is making me mad. But nvertheless, thanks so much for motioneye. I love it.

    @liamaps_twitter hi! Maybe open an issue on GH, too?

    Hey all! I'm using an IP cam that has a built in mic with motionEye and was curious if using 'movie_passthrough on' allows me to somehow capture audio as well? When I examine the Media Info and play the rtsp stream (that I'm using in MotionEye) in VLC player, I can see that there is a 'Stream 0' that is H264 MPEG-4 AVC, and a 'Stream 1' that is PCM ALAW audio, and of course, the video and audio works fine in VLC. Is MotionEye just passing through the Stream 1 of the RTSP stream with 'movie_passthrough on'? And as a background, I've read as much as I can find on the docs and github issues surrounding the unsupported nature of audio with MotionEye, and I realize this is not something MotionEye does... I'm just curious whether or not the 'passthrough stream' of my cam has this ability.

    Hi all, I am using a hikvison ip camera with motioneye, rtsp link streaming in h265+ @ 1080p. I notice gaps on the streaming. Does motion re-encode the streaming? I dont see such a gaps when seeing on VLC directly! camera configuration on motioned is HEVC, 1920x1080
    Arsenijs
    @CRImier
    @mvcorrea are you looking in the overall UI or on the "stream link" that Motioneye exposes on 8081? also, how large are the gaps?
    motion does do its own re-encoding in certain circumstances IIRC

    Good afternoon. I am using motioneye standalone on a raspberry pi and have a couple of cameras hooked up. Two of them have microphones and motioneye motion detection has an option to detect noise. I want to turn this of for one of them, because it is indoors and I don’t want a 100 e-mails per minute when we are in the same room talking :) how do I manage this?
    There is an “auto noise detection” option, which I can turn off and it then reveals a threshold slider which goes from 0% to 25%. I have it set to 25%, so that it needs a lot of noise before it sends of an email, but I really don’t want it to detect any noise.
    Any advice is greatly appreciated, thank you :)

    @developerfromjokela
    As I remember auto noise detection is about the image, not the audio. I can be wrong, so prove me wrong if you can 😆
    Arsenijs
    @CRImier
    yeah, motion can't handle audio, neither can motioneye

    Hello all
    quick question
    is motioneye docker image for rpi4 using hw decoding?
    Marcus Klein
    @kleini
    I hope, I installed everything necessary to be able to use hw decoding on RPi4. As I am not using this setup, I can not test it.
    tokenize47
    @tokenize47
    @kleini what did you install to make sure you're using HW decoding?
    Marcus Klein
    @kleini
    The tools for setting up the necessary keys to enable HW decoding, which are part of the rpi-firmware tools. And the necessary binary libraries for HW decoding. I am not sure, whether the ffmpeg libraries are able to find those libraries from the firmware but I installed them in the standard place.
    tokenize47
    @tokenize47
    I see
    Marcus Klein
    @kleini
    https://github.com/ccrisan/motioneye/blob/dev/extra/Dockerfile.armv7-armhf#L40 see here for the rpi-firmware to be installed in the Docker image.
    tokenize47
    @tokenize47
    in RPI3 I saw that ffmpeg used OpenMAX lib to use hw decoding
    Marcus Klein
    @kleini
    As already said, necessary stuff is installed but I was not able to test it.
    tokenize47
    @tokenize47
    thanks
    Marcus Klein
    @kleini
    HW decoding also depends whether you bought the keys for enabling MPG HW decoding. Those keys then need to be configured in the underlying host system in the /boot/config.txt.
    The Docker image then only contains the tools to be able to check, whether the hardware decoding got enable with the correct keys.
    tokenize47
    @tokenize47
    really? I didn't find that information anywhere
    tokenize47
    @tokenize47
    man I'm missing alot of stuff it seems
    ah, but thats mpeg2
    I'm mostly interested in h264 and 265
    Marcus Klein
    @kleini
    H.264 can be decoded in HW without necessary license keys.
    tokenize47
    @tokenize47
    yeah exactly
    Marcus Klein
    @kleini
    AFAIK only RPi4 is able to decode H.265 in hardware. And I don't know, with what Pi version they added H.264 hardware decoding.

    hey guys, does Motion eye has a rest interface I can use to take snapshots?
    Alberto Vargas
    @albvar
    Disregard ,Chrome + F12, capture network activity, click snapshot button on the ui, search for snapshot gave me what I needed.
    tokenize47
    @tokenize47
    is there a way to tell motioneye to keep the source camera resolution?
