Do not see video at Dashboard
edited July 2017 in Repetier-Server
Hi, I have latest Repetier Server (Repetier Server Pro 0.85.2), several printers and two webcams. At dashboard I cannot see the video but I can see video streaming (vlc). Resolution 640x480 25pfs, timelaps is also working. Can you help me where is the problem?
Not sure why you mention vlc as this is not used for viewing webcams. You might use it as source but then you need to configure printer configuration to use the right url to show it.
So can you tell exactly which webcam and mjpg streamer you use on which operating system. In case of streamer best also the source in case there is a different version from the one we use that behaves differently. I guess we have to learn one more difference that can happen.
- mjpg streamer I've installed according your recommendations - www.repetier-server.com/setting-webcam-repetier-server-linux/ , MJPG Streamer Version: 2.0
Edit: it is strange, I've tried older version, newer one and after reboot I have again latest version - 0.85.2 - and webams are working. Do not know what happened (may be old config? ) but it is working <span></span>
Resurrecting this thread because I have the same issue.
I am running Repetier Server on a RPi3+B and using a Logitech C270. I can see the video and static images streaming in the configuration settings of the webcam, but not in the Webcam window of the Printer.
Any new findings on this?
Ah! Ok, good to know that is a known issue! Will wait for the next release then! Cheers!
Just started using Repetier Server a few weeks ago - and now I'm an Octoprint convert. The UI is amazing, especially on my 7" touch screen. The ease of connecting multiple printers is fantastic. And the single greatest feature is the ability to block out a section of print if it fails. Friday night I was last minute printing 24 key chains for my son's birthday. 4 decided to come loose (getting used to PEI). I was able to stop printing those 4 without disrupting the other 20 and saved an hour of print time and filament.
