#8459 closed defect (moved_to_github)

mjpg-streamer r136-1 broken out of box

Reported by: oss@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: mjpg-streamer webcam streaming UVC Cc:


Looks like the www-folder got removed. On a fresh trunk build, fresh install, I get this error when trying to access mjpg-streamer's HTTP interface:

501: Not Implemented!
no www-folder configured

I have a Logitech UVC fully compatible/supported webcam that I've tested in Ubuntu to work. Willing to help test if you don't =)

There needs to be an option added to /etc/config/mjpg-streamer as well to specify the www directory:

Example working command with the /www/webcam_www directory populated with the source from:

mjpg_streamer --input " --device /dev/video0 --fps 15 --resolution 1280x7
20" --output " -w /www/webcam_www --port 8090"

Note the "-w /www/webcam_www" part of the arguments.

Dupe of #6499.

Its patch probably needs to be updated to trunk again.

I have found you need to set the permissions right:
i have made a new directory: /usr/local/www
sudo chmod 755 /usr/local/www
sudo chmod 644 /usr/local/www/*

mjpg_streamer -i " -d /dev/video0" -o " -p 8080 -w /usr/local/www"
