We have integrated Kmotion's Web interface and this is currently displayed in a Computing menu application window with all the Firefox window objects/controls removed.
We are allowing Kmotion to setup motion and manage the thread files and the motion wrapper is just reading the config files. At present we have left the Orbiter View Camera screens as they are as they even with performance improvements they have nor UI for playing/browsing the cameras daily timeline - all they do is live viewing. It would be great to add better support for browsing triggered camera events and the video timeline but it would look to be a pretty big job to extend the Orbiter code to support this. So for now adding the Kmotion Web interface looks to be the best way forward.
All the best
thanks for info and effort... Browsing motion movies is currently not so convenient, but can be easily enhanced... Before LMCE I used Freevo instead and I also used motion. I've created symlinks to directories with movies from cameras and Freevo had a great and simple feature - in each directory you could have optional .txt files with some config options - for cameras, I just reversed time order of files in that directory, so newest recording is shown first... And I could quite easily browse, watch and delete recordings...
I've tried something similar with LMCE, but don't know if I can reverse ordering of files in certain directory... But, maybe we have some other options, would be happy if anyone knows more about this :
- can we switch to media browser in certain directory as click on the button (we could have "Security Archive" button on Security menu) ?
I'd also like to point out that probably user would want to do only simple things on On screen Orbiter and more complex chores (that need more clicks) over web... Maybe this is also true for this situation....
