I am very impressed with this project, but I wonder Why there is so expensive camera used (over $100)? Is there a special feature you wanted to use?
My second question is - will you public more details on this project? Do you use mjpeg-streamer? As I have read it has some bugs, so maybe that's why camera broadcast freezes?
Thanks in advance for every answer! :-)
I try this for hours. I don't know. I tried to use crosstool ng to compile evert native npm module for the onion but it is not working. We really need a getting started guid for this or someone who explain this to us how we can compile node native addons for the onion.
But they aren't microcontrollers. They are large embedded systems, or in the case of the Arduino, development boards with a lot of power-wasting components on them compared to using the microcontroller in a way that would be sensible for a battery design.
Also note that MT7688 does not have a crypto accelerator module inside to help the encryption/decryption process thus the poor CPU will have to do the hard labor.
I'd suggest: give that CPU/SoC a break and let it do what it is designed to do; no more and no less.
@Luciano-S @WereCatf told here that the devs of the Omega2 forgot to enable CONFIG_DEVMEM in the newer firmware. The last working one is 0.1.6 b137
So my guess is that it is fixed in the next release if it is indeed just a forgotten flag.
@Joris-Mulliez I agree that PHP is of no use here, however I have plans to take this further, and wanted to start with the PHP base to work into. I am taking small steps into this whole new computing world for me. Yes, I could have just had the Python write out to "index.htm" and left it there, however what I am now doing is even beyond that. I want the initial page to allow for the selection of ZIP, City, PWS, Lat/Long and to set the refresh rate. This is only a backbone to grow from.
