    Hi
    & congrats. Great stuff.
    Some questions:
    You wrote you are using a C270.
    The quality of your pics is fantastic. I couldn’t get over 352×288, otherwise the cam stopes randomly.

    So what distro/ software are you using?
    Thanks, Ungi

      Larger photos cause the camera to take more current for longer from the USB 5V line. So I think you’re using an older board with the thermal fuses. Short them out. See on the web (e.g. my first Pi flight) for details.

      I use the latest Raspbian. I used Debian before and that had a USB lockup that would happen randomly, often after a few hours.

    Thanks for your quick response.
    I have a newer Raspi with 512MB Ram, working as a home server,
    so I’ll try this thingi as the webcamserver. Thanks again, also for the fuse tip.
    But I must say, (without trying yet) that I had the same habbit (dieing randomly) when using an USB-Hub. Used always the uptodate Raspbian and the newest Hexxeh-kernels.

    Hi Dave
    thanks for your advice. My tests had no success with a uptodate 512Mb Pi without the USB fuses. What I then recognized, I tried without Wlan, was it was working some minutes longer. I also tried an USB-hub, also faulty.

    So; I’ve given up. Thanks again.

    Hi Dave
    after an update of motion everything turned out for the best.
    Most resolutions are working now.

    Greetings Ungi

  6. Hi Dave,

    I run a science and technology club at my school. I was wondering what if you believe this is feasible to achieve with my club at my school. Any advice you have with regards to funding and expertise would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
