This command works in command line but doesn't in autostart:

raspivid -t 10000 --segment 2000  --output video_%d.h264

    Probably need full path to raspivid

    I don't know where you want to write this command and how to activate it ... but it may help you to describe the different methods for autostart. dexterindustries.com/howto/…

  • What autostart file do you mean?

Often that kind of problem is because of environment variables.

I would probably change the autostart command to:

strace -o /tmp/strace.out taspivid -t 10000 ....

Then look through strace.out to see if what it's unhappy about.
