That died this weekend, so I’ll be getting a Pi4 8g to replace that old little Win7 brick.
The Rpi4B is a great little SBC!
The official price for the 8GB (barebones) model is $75 USD. Anyone charging more than that is taking advantage of limited availability due to global supply chain issues.
The Pi400 is also a neat package where it’s basically a Pi4B built into a keyboard shell. Although I’m not sure its available in an 8GB RAM config.
And they all are to some extent… sux. But a workstation is down. So…
yea, bought a Pi4 8g kit from canakit… only place I could get Pi4 8g kit, which was the same price as just the board on amazon. eeek$ either way. Kit s/b 100-130 tops. I looked at the Pi400, big thing, at the bench I prefer wireless K&M, easier to turn 'em off an put them aside when needing space. The logitech K360 and 510 mouse on a unify dongle (already paired from use on the Win7 brick thin client) worked flawlessly on start up of the Pi3 . Since now the Pi3 is headless and VNC /SSH access, that K&M will go with the Pi4 station.
When the Pi’s get back to normal pricing (if ever), I plan on getting a few more for a few other projects I had in mind as the Pi3B+ was collecting dust, but never broke the box open for.
@Monocle Thanks, but no need. Running great on Pi, and that’s one less dependency on that old Win7 machine that needs to be decom’d. :)
Great that you got it working for others, tho.
I am referring to the offer for “a hacked” version of Monocle Gateway v0.0.6 compiled to work on Windows 7".
Me too… The hacked worked great. But after speaking with Robert, finally dug out the P3B+ I had sitting around for years, and it’s working very well (and yes a me too - off my Win7 workstation.) But big Thanks to Robert @Monocle for giving it Win7 a final run.
I’m curious if anyone has gotten an Echo Show 10 3rd Gen to show the camera feeds. I just ordered the Echo Show 15 and it doesn’t work with that either, but my older shows 5 and 8 2nd gen do work. I’ve read Amazon claim it’s not their problem and this issue may be due to a SSL tunneling requirement. Any new directions would be helpful. Using Amcrest cameras.
I have not tested with the Echo Show 15 but I did briefly have an Echo Show 10 3rd Gen and reported my success in this thread where I list the camera I tested with. I have seen at least one report of success on the 15, but with a Unifi camera. I would suggest that whatever device you get, just make sure to test within the free return window :-)
I you are not currently using the Monocle Gateway (https://monoclecam.com/gateway) software, I suspect that is probably the issue. All newer Alexa devices seem to require using Monocle Gateway (due to more stringent security and protocols.)
Does it help you that these other three programs handled /h264Preview_01_main and worked with this camera?
Not really … (unfortunately)
The hardware is probably capable of playing the stream … it’s the viewer software that must support the H265 codec. The URL signature /h264Preview_01_mai really does not matter … it’s the data returned in the SDP (stream descriptor) that is telling the player to use the H.265 codec. Specifically this line:
I only noticed a single video stream (#96) and single audio stream (#97) in the log data you posted above. It’s telling the viewing software the stream supports H.265 for video and AAC audio.
You could try using the @fakefmtp tag … but I seriously doubt it will work.
The only thing I can think of suggesting is to have some other software (like FFMPEG/FFSERVER) ingest the H.265 stream and re-encode (transcode) it and output it via H.264. Clearly this will add latency and is a somewhat ugly solution. Other users have mentioned using SCRYPTED for their Unifi cameras. I have not tried it out yet, but I think it may be using FFMGEG under the hood to transcode the stream.
I am using Samsung Q90T and It is an excellent TV for most uses. Nearly every type of content looks good on this TV, whether it’s a low-resolution cable TV show or a 4k HDR movie. It has a fast response time and low input lag, and it also comes with FreeSync support to reduce screen tearing when gaming.
