IO cloud cam - issue getting images into feed

by subrosa on Thu Nov 12, 2015 4:34 pm

I'm following the Adafruit IO guide: https://learn.adafruit.com/cloud-cam-co ... dafruit-io

I ended up having to upgrade to Jessie to run the latest Node.JS, but that hasn't been the problem.

[email protected] /tmp/aio_cam $ sudo adafruit-io camera start -f PiCamBackyard -m false -r 5

This command automatically creates the PiCamBackyard feed, and I add that feed to my dashboard...but I never get any images.

I see the process running correctly:

[email protected] /tmp/aio_cam $ ps -efww | grep raspistill
root 3074 3062 0 12:26 ? 00:00:00 /opt/vc/bin/raspistill --timelapse 5000 --timeout 999999999 --quality 10 --nopreview --output /tmp/aio_cam/cam.jpg --width 640 --height 480

As you notice, I testing these with sudo, but the same result happen with a normal user.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Hrm, seems to be working now.

I guess there might be a timeout involved.
