Hi, may I know if it is possible to pass through a webcam that is connected to unraid to MotionEye? Thanks.

I have this installed and setup for my camera.  I have "continuously record" enabled but nothing gets recorded.  Is there something I am missing?

I'm having the same issue.  The camera seems to work, and I've got it set to record when motion is detected.  I get email notifications regarding motion, but nothing is saved to disk or included in the email.

 

When I look at the config file it appears to have many locations to store various things (like logs), that should be stored in APPDATA but they aren't.  Is this container completely functioning?

For me this is also not recording, everything else works.

 

Sad, if you dont update it anymore, just remove it, so ppl wont waste their time.. :/

Try this

 

General > Advanced Settings : ON

 

Movies > MovieFormat: H.264 (.MP4)

 

The default of H264/OMX didn't work for me presumably something's missing in the docker container that's needed for that.

There appears to be a new version out but watch it because upgrading seemed to nuke the config for me.

Dragon the movie format change fixed the recording issue for me.

 

anyone able to get this to run under a reverse proxy? Without a base url setting it just gives me an error when viewing over remote proxy.

 

edit// I got it to work. I was missing two back slashes.

I don't think that is supported by the app. I'll check that.

I'll check all that. I know that the MotionEye Developer is working on a new version. I'll check the recording issue from the docker stand point.

I have it like this for recording: MovieFormat: H.264 (.MP4)

Something broke when upgraded to 0.38. I am working on the solution from my end.

Everyone. I install the Docker on my Dev Enviroment. I noticed that the File Storage inside MotionEye was not set to "/var/lib/motioneye/Camera1" -> EXAMPLE

Also, I have the MEDIA PATH set to "/mnt/user/data/MotionEye"

 

I'll update the TEMPLATE

I have a question to all you guys. Are you using the application with other MotionEyeOS (Raspberry Pi, etc)

FYI - I use the app with some D-Link Cameras that I have.

I'm using it with some laview ip poe cams which are really hikvision cams. Working perfectly for me. records as I have it set. creates folders for each camera's recordings.

 

I did add a raspberry pi camera that is running motion as a test and that also worked for me.

Is there a way to adjust the system time for the camera's? Mine is off by several hours, as though its set to a different time zone.

 

thanks!

I can install the container, but I only have Preferences and General Settings in the configuration tab, any idea why I'm missing the rest of the config options?

Try adding a camera.  I have a vague recollection that a lot of the options don't show up until there's at least one camera/device added.

Is anyone else having any success with getting the motion detection to work reliably?  I get lots of notifications of motion, but there is rarely anything in the images that are sent to me.

 

Also, when I deliberately stand in front of the camera and move around, I almost never get anything.

 

thanks

Seems like the image clip needs to back up a bit before sending the image.

 

I didn't want to choke my cellular by sending so many false positives..

 

Also, has anyone found a way to eliminate light effect?  The biggest movement I get is when a car drives by and it's headlights light up my front door area (the light is the only movement).

 

Causes false triggers all night long.

My timestamp is off by 7 hours.  I've confirmed that the time and date are correct on the UnRaid server.  Also when MotionEye is configured it showed the correct timezone of "America/Los_Angeles" as shown in the edit docker output:

 

 

root@localhost:# /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/dynamix.docker.manager/scripts/docker run -d --name="MotionEye" --net="bridge" -e TZ="America/Los_Angeles" -e HOST_OS="unRAID" -e "PUID"="99" -e "PGID"="100" -p 8765:8765/tcp -v "/mnt/cache/appdata/MotionEye/config":"/etc/motioneye":rw -v "/mnt/user/IP_Cameras/MotionEye":"/var/lib/motioneye":rw malvarez00/docker-motioneye

I similarly find that MotionEye is time-stamping my videos 7 hours off of the system time in unRAID.

I just updated to the latest and tried editing the motioneye.conf with the following to see if I can correct the timestamp:

 

 

# path to the localtime file
# (enable this to configure the system time zone from the UI)
local_time_file /etc/localtime

# enables shutdown and rebooting after changing system settings
# (such as wifi settings or time zone)
enable_reboot true

 

It fails to start at all and the log shows this:

Has anyone been able to resolve the timestamp issue with this docker?

Anything new on the timestamp problem?

 

Also, I can't seem to get Motion's built-in streaming URL to work. I can access the webui for the docker just fine from the unRAID docker list, but if I try the "streaming URL", regardless of port choice, I get a blank webpage. Can this work on unRAID?
