  7. DIY WiFi Cam Tutorial

    I'm stoked to see some other people try it out and I think I'll probably set it up at my house too (ps. let me know how it goes)

    Optional stuffs: Overclocking (Only use with adequate cooling) Enable the "Advanced Settings" slider Open "Expert settings" Set the overclock to your desired level (medium seems to be best balance) NAS Storage Under "File Storage" set it to "Network Storage", and configure according to your network shares setup.
  10. DIY WiFi Cam Tutorial

    Troubleshooting Issue: I get a "wpa_supplicant" failed error. Make sure you set the correct WiFi SSID and password (they're case sensitive) Make sure your file is correctly named: "wpa_supplicant.conf" not "wpa_supplicant.conf.txt" When you go to try again, you must reflash the .img file to your MicroSD, as the wpa_supplicant.conf file is only read on first boot. More help: https://github.com/ccrisan/motioneyeos/wiki/Wifi-Preconfiguration Issue: My cameras framerate isn't high enough! Try overclocking your camera Pi's FAQ Q: Can I just use a web cam instead? YES!, just plug it in via USB and the Pi should detect it as a system camera. However, Fast Network Camera mode DOES NOT work with USB cameras (only ribbon pi cams D:)

    I think I got everything... if you have any questions, ask below ------ The first step is to decide what you want your setup to be, as you'll need to know how many parts to order. There is a few different options, and once you've chosen, click on the parts list for your respective setup. 1. Single Camera w/o hub server Parts list: Pros Least expensive setup Cons Lower attainable FPS/res 2. Single Camera w/ hub server - *RECOMMENDED* Parts list: Pros allows for future expandability higher attainable FPS/res more reliable vs. no hub Cons costs more (you have to buy a second Raspi) 3. Multiple Cameras w/ hub server - *RECOMMENDED* Parts list: Pros higher attainable FPS/res more reliable vs. no hub Cons cost (lol, 2 cameras + hub is still cheaper than a Nest cam) 4. Multiple cameras w/ a desktop computer as a hub This is a setup that you can build, but I haven't investigated it yet, so stay tuned on this. My recommendation is to have a hub server regardless of the number of cameras to ensure the best possible image quality, but if your budget doesn't permit, a single camera w/o a hub server can still work decently. Click on the header for your desired setup to see the actual DIY steps.
  14. I actually considered doing something like this, but the reality of how long it would take to setup in attractive manner shot that idea down. However, that might actually be a decent video idea - a practical multi-gpu watercooling setup. Or maybe: "Watercooling Basics" - where we talk about what it takes to setup a beautiful, and functional watercooling loop (pre treatment, water treaments, drains, fill ports, quick disconnects like you mentioned, etc).
