MotionEyeOS on Odroid C1+ with Logitech USB web cameras

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/10/11

Hopefully I get this to work after fixing

The first part of the fix was to

  1. re-image the SD card.
  2. boot
  3. wait 5 minutes (there is no output on HDMI apart from some flickering and no output on TTY using 115200 bits/second despite trying [WayBacken:c1_hardware_uart [ODROID Wiki])

The second part is getting the USB web cameras to work.

I’ve got two types, but the label on them doesn’t list their common name, only their P/N sometimes with M/N:

  1. P/N 860-000049 M/N V-UBC40 (really old USB cameras)
  2. P/N 860-000334 (new USB camera)

The MotionEyeOS web interface didn’t list any working cameras so I had to do some digging.

Luckily [WayBackWebcam software and driver support for Windows has a table of part and model numbers combined with product names, so they got revealed them as these:

  1. P/N 860-000334 = M/N V-U0028  with name HD Pro Webcam C920
  2. P/N 861225 = M/N V-UBC40 with name Quick Cam Messenger
    (which is funny as the P/N on the label is different)

Both are supported by motion according to [WayBackLogitech < Motion < Foswiki though the Quick Cam Messenger needs [WayBackQuickcam Messenger & Communicate driver for Linux which I should try to cross-compile one day.

The latter works fine. Below are some settings I used.

Notes on recording audio calls from a Fritz!Box and playing back those captures calls

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/28

A while ago, I documented some links for In case I ever need to record calls on my Fritz!Box devices.

By now, I’ve done a bit more investigation: I’ve enabled the call monitor, did some port scans, installed domoticz and got deeper into fritzcap.

Oh and I got packet capturing to work too: Fritz!Box – capture network packets in Wireshark format or ISDN in dtrace format.

A small recap so I don’t forget what I did and what the effects were.

Enabling CallMonitor

[WayBackFritzbox – Domoticz showed how to enable the CallMonitor option in your Fritz!Box

  • Dial #96*5* to enable (response “CallMonitor On”)
  • Dial #96*4* to disable (response “CallMonitor Off”)
  • It seems not possible to ask for the current state (enabled/disabled)
  • After it is enabled, the TCP port 1012 on your Fritz!Box is available for tools like [WayBackDomoticz and fritzcap.

Not cool: openSuse Tumbleweed switched DHCP clientID algorithm on Raspberry Pi 3, so now all devices get a non-static DHCP address

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/15

Not sure in which changeset this happened, but here is one example:

  1. old DHCP client ID 1:b8:27:eb:1a:b1:ec
  2. new DHCP client ID ff:eb:78:a9:4:0:1:0:1:22:6:67:49:b8:27:eb:78:a9:4

The first one was marked static in the DHCP server, which means the Raspberry Pi now did get a different IP address.

This messes up a few places that cannot do proper address resolution.

Anyone who knows where this has changed / is configured?

These did not help finding the cause:

Some Linux mail solutions

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/07

Too bad most of them are very picky to the Linux distributions they run on.

Cool tool!
