I have installed a webcam for security use on a diskless media director. I have tried 2 webcams and gotten the same results both times.
The webcam only takes a single still shot. It will take a new still shot, with timestamp, whenever I do a quick router reset. Note, a full router reset does NOT get the image w/ stamp to update. I placed a moving object in front of the camera to make REALLY sure that the motion wrapper + boring stationary view of objects was not the problem.
I got nuthin...
The MD is an AOpen mp915-x. uname -a reports it as an i686 machine (though the web admin's media director subpage arch option shows i386...). I am running the 710 dvd install.
When I run tail on DCERouter.log | grep camname i noticed it's receiving message from device #0 (unknown) to camname command:Get Video Frame
Under web admin device info for the cam status says "**RUN_CONFIG**". The MD is controlling the motion wrapper, and the motion wrapper is controlling the camera.
I have tried the cam on a different MD and it works just fine. Somehow it's a problem with just the MD?
