Re: yawcam 5 loses track of yawcam_settings.xml

One of the instances locked up after 34 or so hours.
This is OK as I normally reboot the pc every night and restart the cameras.

Re: yawcam 5 loses track of yawcam_settings.xml

Twenty six hours later, still running. So your Beta fixes what was broke for me. I left the console window open on the camera that sees pitch black and sure enough it is restarting about every three minutes. it's up to 993 restarts. And I'm getting alot of 550 FTP errors, so I've changed a couple of...

Re: yawcam 5 loses track of yawcam_settings.xml

eleven hours later still running. I'm keeping my fingers crossed but it seems good. Thanks for the "Settings -> Edit Settings... -> Startup -> Confirm multiple instances". I'll try using it, later, after this test. So far I'm really not feelin the folder structure of the multiple instances...

Re: Yawcam becoming unresponsive overnight

I've started using the beta so we'll see how it goes for me but just reading your post I thought I would add a comment as well. I have the same 'won't work for 24 hours thing' with version 5 but for quite some time I've have the same cameras and at nite they do go to pitch back. One camera is on the...

Re: yawcam 5 loses track of yawcam_settings.xml

I will try the beta and let you know. I have reverted to 4.2 as it runs for weeks with no problems.
I installed 4.2 in a separate set of directories so i can switch back and forth. 5.0 would not stay running for 24 hours.
I'll type back to you and let you know.

Re: yawcam 5 loses track of yawcam_settings.xml

I've tried and tried to capture the errors with the debug feature but to no avail. The debug feature has some voodoo that the straight running does not. Like another poster here I do not get 24 hours of continuous use, I have cameras going dead and I have to use the task manager to close down the YA...

Re: yawcam 5 loses track of yawcam_settings.xml

I'll try the debug thing and let you know. I think the window name was 'default' or 'yawcam - default'. But I think I have solved it by putting a bigger delay in the script I use to start up multiple instances. I now I have an additional 1 second delay after closing the XML file The freezing on shut...

Re: yawcam 5 loses track of yawcam_settings.xml

After playing around some more, it appears that the lock-up when exiting only happens to instances that are running motion detection.

yawcam 5 loses track of yawcam_settings.xml

I am running multiple instances of Yawcam 5, I used to run Yawcam 4 with no problems so this appears to be a new issue with the new version. Sometimes when starting up the 5th or so instance the instance will start up with the default or first run settings. All of the settings for FTP and Motion etc...

Re: Yawcam won't start after Java upgrade

my path had something like c:\program data/oracle/java/....
and that was nowhere to be found on my pc.

replacing that with
C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_31\bin
fixed it.

how can Autoit read the preview to see if the camera is off?

When a camera, that was working fine, for some reason goes off the air, the preview window says 'no device selected'. I have always been able to restart the camera by choosing 'detect webcam' and choosing the camera again. I am trying to write an Autoit script that can sense when the camera drops of...

Re: Numbering Issue

nickhalf,
maybe you can describe to us what you are doing or what your need is.
Quite possibly there is another way of achieving the result you need.

Re: Yawcam Service Stopping on Windows 7 Pro x86 SP1

generiq, are you running just a single instance of yawcam on this machine? are you streaming or ftping or? I remember when I had something a little similar when I had a single install and then went to multiple instances and created folders for each instance. I had random strange stopping and disconn...
