I have a new OctoPrint setup (1.8.6) running on a RPi 3A+, connected to an Ender 5 Plus and to a genuine Raspberry V2 noir cam, connected via the ribbon cable. The RPi is not running anything else. I might connect IR LEDs in the future but that's about it.
Printing works flawlessly, also time-lapse recording. My issue is that the cam is mounted upside down and only providing a 480p feed. I managed to invert the image in the UI settings, so at least my timelapses are the right orientation, but they are still low quality.
Ideally I would like two things:
- high res timelapses
- also a higher res and properly orientated stream via IP/webcam/?action=stream for monitoring purposes.
I assumed that therefore setting the resolution and orientation somewhere deeper than the UI in the system configuration would be ideal. After 5-6h of googling and only errors I am now so frustrated I thought I would ask for help.
I have tried all sorts of commands editing the octopi.txt via SSH, some include:
camera_usb_options="-r 640x480 -f 10 -y"
camera_usb_options="-r 1920x1080 -f 30"
camera_raspi_options="-r 1280x720 -f 20 -hf -vf"
camera_raspi_options="-x 1280 -y 720 -fps 20 -hf -vf -y"
And all sorts of combinations and variations of framerates and resolutions.
Regardless of what I do I either get the standard inverted 480p stream or an error message saying there is no webcam stream.
I have also looked at followed the following threads:
None of these have helped.
Where and how do I set the camera up correctly with the current release of octoprint? What resolution should I go for?
Thanks in advance!!!
