SB_Webcams but it refuses to work at its' default resolution with all the updates in place.
It works OK at 352 *288 rather than 640 * 480'dmesg' and see if you get the same as me about this preempt thing (i have two previously working webcams and now motion doesn't work after an update saying that dev/video0 doesn't exist like yours) BB3/viewt ...
The only way I managed to get a webcam working somewhat properly on the Pi, was to use mjpeg_streamer (set it to a low framerate (2 worked for me) or it will crash on the Pi), then configure motion to read from mjpeg_streamer's stream.
motion also needs to only read 2 times per second or it will max out CPU.
Helps to append nodrop=1 and timeout=5000 to uvcvideo module. works fine with external power, image/video quality is crisp. corruption gets solved for a poor 320x240 4fps after putting options usbcore autosuspend=-1 in /etc/modprobe.d/and then reboot.
A router with ARMv5 453Mhz with 64MB gives 960x720 at 15fps in mjpeg_streamer and 2fps in Motion.
[email protected] ~ $ sudo chmod 666 /dev/video0 [email protected] ~ $ camorama (Assuming Raspbian) I suspect you've probably fallen foul of the the Pi's greatest weakness, its USB system. They are improving things with the latest updates but its far from perfect.
I have a whole range of webcams that work perfectly on Linux, but the Pi won't entertain them.
This simple manual explains how to run an alarm system using Asterisk PBX software and a webcam, under Debian Linux 4.0. Is not responsible in any way for any mishap for using this system.
If you do not want to reproduce audio, put for example a "sleep 60", this would leave us 60 seconds to turn off the alarm and not make the call. In conclusion On this basis, you can change everything you need to adjust to your needs.
