00:15 <MrDave20161> zro: Loopback was revised recently to finally support v4l2 so you would need to be building Motion from the git source for it to work. Instructions on building and using the loopback is in the guide. Here is the link to the section on using loopback. The building instructions are also in this document. http://htmlpreview.github.io/?https://github.com/Motion-Project/motion/blob/master/motion_guide.html#Options_Pipe

01:36 <MTecknology> looks like I'll be learning about motion!
01:39 <MTecknology> I finally set up my network nice and pretty and have a camera in it that's been working okay enough (eventually I want to get better quality discrete cameras) and I'm getting excited to spin up a system to record and notify
01:59 <Criggie> MTecknology: hey dude
02:00 <Criggie> motion is nice

02:06 <MTecknology> Criggie: Howdy! :D
02:06 <Criggie> :) What camera do you have ?
02:08 <MTecknology> the cheapest thing I could find that didn't require open access to the internet (just a local web ui)
02:08 <MTecknology> d-link dcs-936l
02:08 <MTecknology> I'd *love* some suggestions for future improvements
02:14 <Criggie> Looks fine - are you using it wireless?
02:15 <Criggie> I have some cheap DX cameras, they've been a mixed bag
02:15 <Criggie> some are working really well
02:16 <Criggie> one phoned home to china all the time
02:16 <Criggie> one has poor night vision

02:17 <Criggie> I can't remember the brands, but hosafe was teh phone-home one to avoid.
02:17 <Criggie> Personally I like POE wired ones, not wireless.
02:29 dreamon joined
02:44 <MTecknology> yup, it's wireless
02:45 <MTecknology> I'd prefer itty bitty poe cameras I could run through my walls so nobody has to be bothered by their presenc.
02:45 <MTecknology> I decided to start with something cheap first.
