Galicaster Plugin Cameracontrol
This is a plugin for Galicaster that allows to control a remote camera from Galicaster GUI.
Right now, the plugin works with the following cameras:
- EVI-H100S/100V cameras, using an implementation of VISCA protocol in python.
- This plugin can be installed as a deb package or through pip installer:
- To generate deb package
In repository root folder execute
sudo py2deb -r pathtorepo .
path to store deb files
This will create the plugin deb package and debs for dependences. By default packages are stored in /tmp folder.
- To install with pip
In the repository root folder execute
sudo pip installor execute
python setup.py sdistto generate a .tar package installable from pip
Galicaster controls the camera using the serial port, so we need to add the user galicaster to the group dialout, as follows (otherwise galicaster would need root privileges):
sudo usermod -a -G dialout galicaster
The following lines must also be added to the
conf.ini file so that the plugin runs properly:
[plugins] cameracontrol = True [cameracontrol] path = /dev/ttyUSB0 zoom_levels = 7 max_speed_pan_tilt = 0x18 camera = sony_evi_h100s_100v
Panasonic AW-HE50, AW-HE120, AW-HE60, AW-HE130, AW-HE40, AW-HE65, AW-HE70, AW-UE70
Add to the
[plugins] cameracontrol = True [cameracontrol] path = 192.168.0.10 zoom_levels = 49 max_speed_pan_tilt = 49 camera = panasonic_aw_he40
