[MMM-RTSPStream] - Video Streaming from Live Feeds & Security Cameras



  • If you edit your custom.css file and restart MM then you can see the module position better:

    $ vi /home/pi/MagicMirror/css/custom.css
    :
    :
    .MMM-RTSPStream .innerWrapper {
      //border-style: none;
      border: 1px solid red;
    }
    

    You can use the editor of your liking of course.

    Btw, I see (wrong ??) fixed values MMM-RTSPStream.css:

    $ cat /home/pi/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-RTSPStream/MMM-RTSPStream.css
    :
    :
    .MMM-RTSPStream .innerWrapper {
      position: relative;
      width: 352px; /* Video width + 2*border + 2*padding */
      height: 242px;
      border: 1px solid white;
      /*float: left;*/
      display: inline-block;
      text-align: center;
      margin: 2px;
    }
    

    So, whatever your settings are in config.js, the result will be the same.
    I would try to change it to:

    width: 658px; /* Video width + 2*border + 2*padding */
    height: 360px;
    

    And then check pm2 logs for the --win settings it results to.
    Or even comment it out and see what happens:

    //  width: 352px; /* Video width + 2*border + 2*padding */
    //  height: 242px;
    

    Let me know the result and the pm2 log output (–win part).

    I adjusted the width and height in the css file like you instructed and restart MM. The result is that, the video stream window indeed gets bigger (W 658 x H 360) now but it does not really “move” to the right of the screen. Plus, at this size of the width, it becomes too wide that it covers the complimentary wording partially…
    the “-win” is now “1127, 512, 1767, 872”
    And with the “red” border of the stream window enabled, I can see that the red border frame aligned perfectly with the right-side of the screen however, the video feed itself does not fit within this red frame but is “top-left” off from the red frame
    Any idea how I can move the video feed to fit the red border frame and, do not cover the complimentary wordings?
    Thank you really, for your helps



  • how can i test with omxplayer that my camera link is playing ok?With vlc my link is ok but using omxplayer with the module i get nothing,empty box.



  • @costascontis
    You can use the command
    pm2 status
    to check if it’s working.
    Also, in the config.js file, you need to specify the omxplayer instead of vlc
    localPlayer: ‘omxplayer’,

    You can test it standalone with:

    $ omxplayer --avdict rtsp_transport:tcp --live --video_queue 4 --fps 30 --win "0 0 640 360" rtsp://[rrtsp_uri]
    

    PS

    Now the coordinates confuse me, but make sense (X-axis, Y-axis)

    —win x1,   y1 , x2,   y2
    —win 0,    0,   640,  360
    
    Size of video stream:
    (x2 - x1) x (y2 - y1) =  640 x 360

    the “-win” is now “1127, 512, 1767, 872”

    Could you briefly test it with width and height commented out ?

    //  width: 352px; /* Video width + 2*border + 2*padding */
    //  height: 242px;
    

    Just to see what is happening then.

    I would try this:

    Change the config.js:

    :
    :
    moduleWidth: 468,
    moduleHeight: 253,
    :
    :
            width: 450,
            height: 253,
    

    Change the MMM-RTSPStream.css:

    width: 468px; /* Video width + 2*border + 2*padding */
    height: 253px;

    Change the MMM-RTSPStream.css:

    width: 468px; /* Video width + 2*border + 2*padding */
    height: 253px;
    

    So I followed what you recommended: width 468 and height 253. The result is still the same: The red border frame is perfectly aligned with the right size of the screen (in bottom-right setup). But the live video stream window (468x253) is located more to the “left” and higher than the red frame
    This thing really drives me nuts…gr.gr…gr…



  • @jngo
    So if the video area matches the module area (the red border in this moment) then it is okay for you?

    Could you still till try this?

    „Could you briefly test it with width and height commented out ?“



  • @evroom
    I tried to comment out the W & H, it still did the same issue. I restart the Raspberry and re-install the module, it gets better a bit: Now the right-edge of the stream video is aligned with the weather module, which is what I want to. However, the stream module is still off compare to the red border frame. But I guess it is the best it could get so I set the border to “0” (no border any more). And it is now the closest that I could get!

    One last thing I want to ask you as well: How do I increase the size of the fonts used in the MM? Which lines of code in the “main.css” of the MagicMirror should I look at? My purpose is I want to make the text in the clock, weather, calendar appear bigger a little bit so that we can all see those info from a few feet away.

    Thank you very much for your patience and helps, I really appreciated it.
