    Okay, nvm, just got someone to tell me that there's a feature built in...

    Hello, is there a way to save snapshots as png or tif files as opposed to jpegs? Thanks
    Nickybroke, the webcontol interface has to be enabled in the config file. It's also important to know if you're using it from the same machine (local machine) or not. Its in the docs but its a little confusing at times.
    Hi, just want to ask if it's possible to send a Webhook after the motion event ended? Tried to search the web for instruction but can't seem to find one.. thanks in advance!
    messaged too soon, nvm.. thanks!
    hey everyone, trying to spec out a surveillance system and cant find any user stories for more than 16 cameras. I'm interested in supporting 30-40 on a single server
    4C/8T 3.6GHz CPU fwiw
    Is it possible to use the digest authentication mode in the streaming ULR?

    Hey guys. I'm wanting to try and filter out some false positive recordings using Deep Stacks AI. I'm trying to figure out how I can delete images/movies that I find don't have moving cars or people in them. I looked at the REST API but didn't see a way to do this. Can someone tell me if I can send a web request to delete certain media items?
    I heard that there is a motioneye mobile app in the field. I don't know how this is working but maybe they can help?

    @ccrisan I have recently set the motion eye on my raspberry pi and I tried integrating with dropbox to store the files. When I click on ObtainKey it doesn't route me to the right URL to get the access key. looks like something is broken? i tried installing motioneyeos and my other Pi and there it works fine. Am i missing something ?
    I all, i have intalled motioneyeos on a pi 0 and i want to use scripts that use telegram to notify me when a motion is detected.
    But I can't install pip to install teleport, can you help me ?

    Hi everyone, on motioneye "Motion Notifications" which service/method you use to get real time notifications to alert you on motion detection?

    I've spent a lot of time 'playing' with motioneyeOS on Raspberry Pis. I've used Ubuntu/Mint for years in preference to Windoze. Currently Mint 18.3 on a 2011 Toshiba Portege that I bought second-user (unused ex-lease) in 2014.

    Having been given a birdbox-cam (USB Webcam inside), I'm duty bound to set it up. It's now mounted in a suitable location with USB cable run indoors to where an old laptop can be set-up to record avian visitors so we can show the donors (when permitted) what a thoughtful gift...

    The 'old' laptop is an almost unused 2003-4 Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 (Celeron, 512Mb, 40Mb, XP SP1) with a huge square screen. A lovely 'antique' in mint condition and perfect working order.
    Motioneye is the obvious choice, but what lightweight distro to use? Ubuntu/Mint use too much memory even with xcfe.

    I'm too old to spend days learning how to fix loads of low-level problems with installing Motioneye under a minority distro.
    Can anyone suggest a suitable lightweight, mainstream, distro please?

    Hello, Sorry for this seemingly stupid question but I am new to raspberrypi and motioneye. Is there a way that I can change or update the settings of motioneye through python? I actually want to control the settings of motioneye through azure iothub
    MotionEye still active project? I had no updates since last year.
    With the comming of 5G, it would be nice to have the faster compressions. Not MJPEG, but those new onces. Most of my cam all can handle network througput, but MJPEG is the limiting factor atm. We should use H264. I think MotionEye is ready for that.
    hello, how to change /usr/bin/motion -n -c /etc/motioneye/motioneye.conf -d 5 to /usr/bin/motion -m -c /etc/motioneye/motioneye.conf ?
    Heyo, I was wondering if there is a way to lower the network usage that viewing motioneye has. Stream compression or something? while looking at the motioneye page I can see network usage as high as 200mb/s and would like to reduce it. I found the resolution dimmer to be a good way of doing so but when enabled I get pretty bad lag on all feeds
    Not sure if anyone has touched on this but I have my camera set on my garage and it doesn't seem to pick up anything passed about 20 feet. I'm sure this is a settings issue but I can't seem to figure it out. Anyone have a camera that I'd able to detect movement at around 20-30 feet? I can literally walk around in front of our door and it trigger a motion event. Fram change threshold is at 1.2% Maximum Change Threshold is at 5 and minimum motion frame is at 3
    I have 3 cameras of which my frame change is under 1%, usually around .3% and even then they mainly see vehicles instead of people. the only suggestion I would give is lowering the frame change because less of the frame is changing at such a distance, especially depending on the resolution of said camera, my 1080P fisheye camera is the one that isn't really able to detect people even when the framechange is extremely low, I would assume due to the resolution and the fact it is fisheye
    Ok ill try that thanks Caleb!
    I agree with Caleb. Try reducing the frame rate so that the apparent motion between each frame and the previous is greater. Also motion that's mostly towards/away from the camera (rather than across the field of view) is problematic for all types of 2D motion detection. Predators (like humans) have evolved very advanced (3D) vision over millions of years. Prey species (with eyes on the sides of their heads) only have 2D vision and rely on apparent (fast) motion to detect threats. Field-craft instructors teach Shape, Shine, Shadow, Silhouette, Movement, Contrast as the keys to avoiding being detected.

    Hi. I am running motioneye in a docker image on an RPi thanks. I have been playing with old android phones running IP Webcam app, to use as IP camera sources. I have to note that I can set cameras up, but if stop then restart the server on the camera, I find often I have to turn the camera on/off again in motioneye? Fair enough, I guess if there is some tricky protocol synchronisation to avoid, probably in motion backend? However, on occasion, I am finding the only way to get the camera back up again is delete it from motioneye panel and then add it again?! So, is this issue because I am using IP Webcam and turning an android phone into an IP camera source? OR is this typical behaviour? Cameras are setup as simple MJPEG with no passwords.
