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
I've used Freevo before I switched to Pluto and later LMCE. I used pretty simple trick to see motion triggered videos - you just show those movies in separate directory with display sorting in time reverse (so you see latter first) and if we add proper screenshots, that will be more than enough for a good start and rounding of video surveillance features - what do you think ?
Freevo had a nice, handy feature - in each directory there was a text file describing, how files in that directory are displayed - if nothing was changed it was by default order, but then again you could change that default behavour... Pretty simple trick that would be handy also in LMCE for other things, but primarily for browsing video surveillance...
Changing motion-wrapper is pretty trivial (AFAIK there is a command line possibility to run when video is saved in motion), I just need some help on LMCE's part :
- how to properly enter that video into LMCE as part of security alert and as video file for later use through Orbiter
- how to switch Orbiter into particular directory with those files (can it be done with video directory as parameter? )
- if possibly to display files in time reversed order ?
What do you think ?
Thanks in advance,
