    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.

    This seems to be a stupid question… but can MotionEye broadcast just a page with the video stream and no admin controls? I want to use it to stream my fish tank

    ive had similar issues using an old phone. main issue was likely some sort of wifi dropout but it was similar. there are cheap cameras that are much more stable. i recommend the Wyzecam v2 (costs 30 bucks)

    I reread the message and need to correct myself. It can stream just a page with the videostream function and no admin controls.

    it is below text overlay while looking at a video device

    @Caleb642
    you could also just use a non admin user "surveillance user"

    DietPi has RPiCam

    You can Docker or VM especially DietPi
    Caleb642
    @Caleb642
    i do love docker, i have motioneye in a docker container
    is dietpi as good as motioneye though? it has support for any camera i could want and controls support

    DietPi is an OS it has an app called “RPiCam”
    Caleb642
    @Caleb642
    oh, though i assume dietpi is only for the raspi

    Oh no it was originally developed for it but works on tons of things it’s just a super super lightweight Debian build

    i currently just use ubuntu server for all of my vms, seemed like a good choice, though i will check that out fosho

    Hi there. I hope I can get a little help with webhooks. I have a webhook set up and in place in MotionEye, but it never fires, even when the trigger occurs (an image is captured). The webhook looks like this: https://hooks.slack.com/services/T02RAMVMF5Z/B03DCEXQRPS/<token> and is set with POST (JSON). It works if I curl -X POST -H 'Content-type: application/json' --data '{"text":"Hello, World!"}' https://hooks.slack.com/services/T02R...<etc> but never from MotionEye. What may I be doing wrong? Any ideas on where to look, please?
