IPTimelapse
« on: February 17, 2021, 07:01:53 PM »
Anyone using IPTimelapse to upload videos to their host?
I am able to upload webcam images but, I have not been able to figure out how to upload the videos.
The FTP box says "images, not video"
Thanks
Larry

On Timelapse tab there is a place to check.
I've attached a screenshot.

thanks weatherbee
what are your settings in iptimelapse
to render a 2+ minute video?
how do you get your video to play at a slower speed?
would you mind sharing your script for
displaying your videos?
thanks again

I use it in an iframe to get on the website.
Code: [Select]
<h1><?php langtrans('Timelapse Page'); ?></h1>
    <iframe src="https://www.shermanctweather.org/Intraday_video.mp4" alt="Today" width="640" height="480"></iframe>
You can speed up or slow down the timelapse by changing the frame rate.
You can play with it to see how you like it.
you also can set the size of the timelapse as far as width and height.

I have purchased and downloaded IPTimelapse as well.  I have four Reolink RLC -511W Cameras.  Currently using Blue Iris 5 and BLUE IRIS TOOLS for WX overlays.  I continue to be plagued with “No-Signal” messages on BI 5.  When I open REOLINK Client for Windows, ALL cameras are connected.  Struggling with IPTimelapse trying to figure out how to set snapshot image file size to 640X480.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.  Thank You in advance!

Go to settings and click exposure tab.
You can set the thumbnail width there.

Tom,
  Thanks for your quick response.  I believe I set width at 640 rather than 480?  I will research later today.

Tom,
  I have uploaded FTP the mp4 file to my website webserver files.  When I try to view the file in my file manager, I get an error file format not recognized?  Do I contact my webserver hosting for this issue?  Thank You for your assistance once again.

I should just work.
I don't see an option to get to it via your site.

Tom,
  Thanks for your response.  I figured it out.  I should have "viewed mp4 file in a browser".  IPTL is uploading to my website server.  I will wait for a couple of days of timelapse images to set up the "iframe" on my website.  Thank You!

Tom,
  I know this may be on a different thread, but how can I set-up WeatherLink.com with WLL to generate a wxfile for the IPTL weather overlays?  Thank You!

I don't think you can directly.
You can use your CWOP or Weather Underground
accounts to get weather data into IPTimlapse.

This should be very easy to do. IPTL allows you to use a text file with weather data already on your system to generate weather overlays. You could use the WeatherLink API V1 to read data directly from your WLL and put that data with the text you'll be displaying in IPTL. Or, if you wanted more data than what's available with the V1 API, you could use the V2 API to read from WeatherLink.Com and use that with IPTL.

You may want to start here:

https://weatherlink.github.io/

The info for the V1 API is under the heading WeatherLink Live Local API.

The info for the V2 API is under the heading WeatherLink v2 API.

If you have any questions, I'll do my best to help.

I have similar issues with my Reolink cameras under BI5 too. I just assumed there might be network issues/cable issues with mine.

It's been suggested that the Reolink cameras play by their own standards, not by everyone else's standards. :(

Brendan,
  I was running a cable modem with a Netgear Nighthawk router.  I switched out and purchased the AMAZON Eero Mesh with my cable modem as a bridge and “No signal” errors are gone.  I believe these webcams prefer a stronger wifi signal to broadcast still and timelapse images.  BI5 had too many updates!

thanks, I'm running mine wired, not wireless, and still getting drop out issues.

I've just upgraded my wireless here to unifi stuff, and it makes a huge difference. Wish I knew about them earlier.

Grabbed IPTimelapse on the weekend to consider as an alternative to my current setup which uses iSpy/Agent.

Having a few issues trying to emulate what I have in both the above,
but finding it had to find a point of support/documentation or user discussions.

Any suggestions?

I have always received first rate service from Mike at SebecTec through email: info at iptimelapse.com

Edit: Also what sort of issues?  I have been using IPT for some time and have great success.

I have been running IPTimelapse Pro on four Reolink RLC-510W cameras with no issues.  Mike at SebecTec has been amazing with support during updates.

What I can't sort is how to mirror what I'm doing in iSpy/Agent.

Grabbing a frame every 5 Seconds, encoding it at 12 FPS & closing the file every 30 minutes.
Resulting MP4 is a 12 FPS Playback that shows 30 minutes in 30 seconds.

Relatively smooth @ 12 FPS for a time-lapse.

Email support doesn't really work for me when I'm in a difficult timezone.

Reference material is of much more value.


An Example.

Just wanted to reply and say I've been using the software for about 5 years until my hikivision camera died.  I just grabbed 2 aircams from ebay and started back up.  It really is great software for weathercam snaps and timelapse
