Video Clip same name on Server via FTP
« on: December 09, 2017, 07:51:49 PM »
Hi, with BlueIris I have setting a camera for Record on Periodic, each 3 min for 5 sec . Combine or cut video each 1 min. So every 3 minutes, it sends the converted .mp4 file to my server via FTP. A file that is named with the name of the camera, the date and time.

Is it possible to have a file name always the same ? As for the JPEGs Post. I can display the photo on my weather web site, with a code that gets refreshed in 1 minute with the view of the new photo.

Or I have to use a code on my website that will display the latest send file in my server. But then how to automatically delete old videos ?

I found a code for the name of a specific video. If you would have the code to broadcast the last video recorded on the server, I would be grateful to you.

Thank

I update videos and images every 2 minutes on my site along with all my weather data using ftp.  I have 3 cams and create a time lapse video from each at the top of every hour.  To simplify things I bought this package: https://www.scriptftp.com/ for $35.  The author was very helpful and it was well worth the money.

I run the script with Windows Task Scheduler on a 2 minute schedule.  This is what my script looks like:  (X's are used for username and password)

Thank GregJ . You use BlueIris to create your images ?  If I fail to broadcast as I want, a video each 3 min for 5 sec. I will try your setup. Others have ideas ?

I am using Sebectec to capture images and create the time lapse.  Sebectec / IPTimelapse has it's own ftp feature, but I had to consolidate it all into one session.  My webhost was blacklisting my IP because of too many concurrent ftp sessions.  Their firewall thought it was an attack.....

I found on a site in French, a php script that displays the most recent photo created by a webcam in a folder on the web server. The camera creates a picture name like this:  00606E905560(Phoenix)_0_20110117220232_34.jpg

The code in French is this:   I translated in English below. But English is not my main language.

Me the files are in the folder '' webcamlive "" . And the name of video file is Cam2.20171209_190109.mp4 '' and time is HHMMSS .
What's interesting is that it removes old files.

A similar code but for videos, that's what I want.

After a few tries, I managed to configure Blue Iris to make a video that always has the same name. Problem solved.
