    thanks for your answer. I just went through tvheadend and its a nice looking tool, but I can't see how it will help me here. maybe there is a way to import the camera as a source, but I couldn't find any.

    thought of a little script sofar but its not working

    1. #!/bin/bash
    2. nowx=`date '+%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M'`
    3. filenamex="/home/output$nowx.mkv"
    4. ffmpeg -f v4l2 -t 01:00:00 -framerate 30 -video_size 1920x1080 -i /dev/video0 $filenamex

    I installed the FFmpeg Tools from the libreelec repository, but it still says "ffmpeg not found"

    /edit: credits for the script are not mine, someone else is trying to help me, I'm really a total noob here :S


    I'm looking for a simple surveillance add-on. I want to connect a USB camera (Webcam) to my Raspberry Pi 3 (Model B) and record the video and have it saved on a connected USB stick.

    I know there are some surveillance add-ons, but I do NOT want any IP Cameras or stream cameras. I want nothing to be streamed. Just the Pi and the camera recording and the only access to the files is directly from the stick.

    I tried the motioneyeOS, but it did not work quiet well for me, it recorded the video yes, but there was no audio and the quality was really bad and the frames worse. (yes I changed the settings to 1080p and 30 fps but the actual outcome of the video file was like 4-5 fps). And I did not like so much, that you could only access it through your web browser.

    And I would like to keep my Kodi.

    So I’m looking for an add-on, which will record the video/audio from the USB camera and save the file on the stick. The Video setting should be 1080p 30 fps and created files 60 minutes long. So after one hour the video file is completed and saved and the next file created. Would be nice if the file-names contain the date and time.

    English is not my native so I hope it was not too bad and you understood what I meant :)
