MMM-MotionEye - surveillance video stream on your mirror!

  • @Cato Hi Cato, actually I don’t know what you really mean. The URL i use is http://userid:password@myipaddress:8081. This streaming URL works on any browser and on my other MM system. I’ve made also a shot of the icon I see on the screen if you mean that. Remember, when I’m URL to MM from any other system everything works as expected.

    No, I want to see a screenshot of MotionEye, the section where Video Streaming URL is shown.

    You say that “Then I installed MotionEye on top but can’t get it running”. What can’t you get running? MotionEye or MagicMirror or this module?

  • @cato O.K. Cato, now I understand what you mean, sorry. As mentioned, I installed a complete new MM from scratch. Everything went fine, MM’s standard modules are present, as expected. Then I installed MotionEye as described but on the screen I see only the small image as on the picture. This also disappears when I configure autohide and no motion is present. 0_1493326715516_URL.png
    I think that’s it

    Can you paste your config-section of this module?

  • @cato

    	                  module: 'MMM-MotionEye',
    	                  position: 'lower_third',
    	                  config: {
    		          url: "http://userid:password@",
                              width: '800',
                              autoHide: 'false',
                              autoHideDelay: '60000',
                              debug: 'true'

    for the sake of completeness, this is my trigger URL http://MMip:8080/motioneye

    made a new installation as describek by @KirAsh4 with the same result as already mentioned but found some maybe related entries in the pm2 mm-out-0.log.

    I’m on vaccation until next week (back 8th of May) and don’t have any chance of doing any testing.

    Just wondering about your configuration. The values for width, autoHide, autoHideDelay and debug is not a string and you should not have the hyphen ( ’ ) around them. Not shure if it matters, but could you try to remove them?

  • @Cato
    Hi, I had a bit more time over the weekend. By trial an error I found out that the problem is related to my motioneye URL string providing userid and password. Apparently the Electron browser can’t handle this. After disabling authorization in Motioneye the problem was solved. In another MM installation on a Pi Zero I use Midori as browser and this works since month without problems. Thanks for MMM-Motioneye and your help in this case.
