Rovio as video source plus PTZ

Postby joelgb » Fri Jun 11, 2010 12:59 am

Hello,
I've spent some time playing with my Wowee Rovio. I've managed to get it working as a monitor and recently hacked together a PTZ control file to drive it from the Zoneminder web interface. I have also written a 2-3 page guide on how to get it working.

I'd like to contribute this, but am not sure how or where to upload it to the wiki. Can someone give me some guidance?

Thanks,
Joel

Wiki is pretty simple just go to
http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.php/Welcome

and change welcome in the url to what ever you want to call your page/guide.

Thanks,
A quick question. I was able to create the wiki page, but how can I upload a .pm control file to the wiki? Or can I only upload image files? The control file is a lot of text to copy and paste, I thought it easier to upload the .pm file.

First version is here:

I went ahead and just posted the contents of the .pm file on the wiki page.

Thanks for your help kingofkya!

THIS IS AWESOME!!! I was looking for an excuse to buy a rovio, but didn't know how difficult it might be to integrate with ZM, and didn't wanna invest at that point. I have to get one now!

Thanks for your contribution!
