The desktop version of the Action Camera Toolbox ships with a command line util
actcmd (on some platforms
actcmd.sh). This util can be started without a window manager from a command prompt (shell):
// Windows: cd "directory where the actcmd.exe is located" actcmd <options> // OS X: cd "directory of the Action Camera Toolbox.app package" cd "Action Camera Toolbox.app/Contents/MacOS" ./actcmd <options> // Linux: cd "directory where the actcmd file is located" ./actcmd <options>
Note for OS X users: The command line util is only available for purchases made through our website. Due to Mac App Store limitations it is NOT available for purchases made in the App Store.
The HTTP server mode can be started as follows (2000 is the server port):
actcmd --port 2000
Scripts can be passed as an argument or as a file.
actcmd --script 'SetCameraMode("video");'
actcmd --script-file /full/path/to/script.js
–help: Shows the possible application arguments.
–v: Shows the application version information.
–l: Prints out debug information when scripts are executed.
