Mjpg-streamer init script doesn't work in multicam setup

Reported by: peter.vilhan@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: mjpg-streamer, init Cc:


Hello all,
there is some error in mjpg-streamer init.d script caused probably by quotations passed in arguments which blocks multicam setups.
When I configure second webcam in a new section of /etc/config/mjpg-streamer, service_start will start only the last one....

I was not able to solve this problem but here is a quick workaround which works fine (direct call of start-stop-daemon):

start-stop-daemon -q -S -b -m -p $SERVICE_PID_FILE -x $PROG -- --input " --device $device --fps $fps --resolution $resolution --minimum_size $minimum_size --led $led" --output " --port $port"

For more details, please find attached init.d script.
Is there anybody with working init script for multicam setup?
