already have added the user. see my results here.Alan87i wrote:$ sudo adduser www-data video (did you do this ?)
Check if www-data is in the video group. cat /etc/group | more
root@ubuntu-test:~# sudo adduser www-data video
The user `www-data' is already a member of `video'.
i also did a chmod 777 /dev/video0 and chmod 777 /dev/video1, so it cant be a permission issue. I need to finish this project for work and get the cameras to record and i need this up soon. Is there an alternative to zoneminder that is also freeware. Any programs for a windows xp box too.
also found this post with no solution.
