@stephenmw said in Weird 2.4GHz interference running Shinobi:
Is your setup wireless? 2.4ghz band is typically wireless G, which doesn't have a lot of throughput. I imagine 2 or 3 [email protected] cameras would start to slow down a wireless G network.
I did setup on wireless as well,is there an way to swap this to the wired connection, I lose the server as soon as I swap.
It sounds like more work than it's probably worth. Even if you compiled ffmpeg for your device, would you be able to take advantage of any of the hardware acceleration from the SoC? I don't think so. You'd have a lot of CPU usage.
Meanwhile you can buy a $10 Raspberry Pi Zero Wireless which is open and natively supports hardware acceleration via ffmpeg.
Well, as I have found a workaround, I am going to answer to myself, I hope that this will be useful for someone!
To solve the problem I have created 2 scripts (note that I am far to be a linux expert):
script "Restart_Shinobi" to restart cameras and cron:
pm2 restart /home/Shinobi/camera.js
pm2 restart /home/Shinobi/cron.js
script to launch firefox then call "Restart_Shinobi"
firefox localhost:8080 & Restart_Shinobi
Don't ask me why but with this, monitors are really launched and I can see into firefox my monitors/cameras
