What should the default "Stream URL" be set as?
Perhaps: /webcam/?action=stream

That's for the latest version:

OctoPrint 1.6.1 Python 3.7.3 OctoPi 0.17.0

Installed directly from https://octoprint.org/download/

Re: Mirror mode? How?

any info on it At least for the Marlin X2 variant, M322 may do what you want: https://reprap.org/wiki/Marlin_X2_firmware Whether it matches the hardware & firmware you have on hand is an entirely different question … [grin] It's a bit down the page: https://duckduckgo.com/?t=ffab&q=reprap+mirror+mo...

Re: Uneven extrusion?

already going fairly slow Going slow is at least part of the problem: the nozzle spends too much time over each tower and the layers get all melty. There being nothing like a good new problem to take one's mind off all one's old problems, here's a version in PETG: PXL_20210526_175311659 - Leg test ...

Re: Uneven extrusion?

especially on small tall objects Those towers need much more cooling to let each layer solidify before the nozzle makes another pass. Building several copies will help, probably more than any additional air flow from a fan, although you'll likely need a brim around the bases to improve adhesion. Sl...

Re: WARNING: Firmware Unresponsive

sit there spitting out this error The place to look is just before the first occurrence of that error message, where you'll find another message suggesting what caused the firmware to stop responding. This may require considerable scrolling and maybe enlarging the scroll buffer, but that's the only...

Re: Printer stopped due to errors. Fix the error and use M999 to restart. (Temperature is reset. Set it after restarting

Could it be a break in the wiring harness again? A fundamental debugging rule: "Quit thinking and look." Don't rule out any of the possibilities by thinking "It can't be that , because reasons ." The problem is (almost certainly) a failing wire or connection that could be anywhere from inside the t...

Re: How many amps for old style 12v M2?

be prepared for a 24v upgrade I don't know how much current the stock 24 V heater draws, but the total will be near the upper limit for a laptop supply. If you don't have small children underfoot, a real power supply might make more sense than a laptop supply. The minimal protection over the AC ter...

Re: How many amps for old style 12v M2?

found an unused laptop PSU rated at 19v 4amps First rule of fixing things: ya gotta have stuff! [grin] it appears that 4 amps is sufficient Power supplies these days know how to protect themselves from overloads, so when it seems to be perfectly happy, you know it is! Because you've depleted your p...

Re: Firmware and Octoprint Updates

you have actually set up an SDCard image without MakerGear's version of Octoprint and it all works? Yup, on a somewhat hacked M2 with updated firmware Prusaslicer: https://softsolder.com/2019/03/07/3d-printing-peculiar-octopi-problem/ https://softsolder.com/2019/10/04/makergear-m2-octopi-camera-mou...

Re: Firmware and Octoprint Updates

it will break the machine. That is just so much bullshit . What it will do is break their ability to bail you out; no small consideration for tech support. Because it's just a Raspberry Pi, all the configuration (and everything else) is on its MicroSD card. You can install + tinker a new Octopi on ...
