I tried a couple tutorials? where motioneye was installed onto the raspian-stretch software after it was imaged onto a sdcard.
All was going well upto about 95 to 97 percent, without any errors.
The 1 off the hackaday site got as far as step 3,as after I ran the command from step 3 the camera was not recognised.
I then tried one from the author of motioneye, but again at about 97% my camera was detected, but not recognised by motioneye, even though I enabled it in raspian-config.
Just by chance after I read somewhere about the pi camera not working, but a USB one did, did I didg my old USB logitech camera out from the days of windows 98. It was recognised but the viewing angle was quite narrow, so that wasn’t really feasable.
So I am back to just motioneyeos on a 64Gb class 10 sdcard, and apart from not yet getting emails with pictures, it is working great with the wide angle camera.
