Go to options, Images tab, then under FFMPEG_OUTPUT_OPTIONS you need to type -r 30 -b 2000000 in the Value box -r is frame rate, and -b specifies bitrate. Higher bitrate will make much bigger files for mpeg videos, but better quality to a point of diminishing returns, so you can play with this numbe...

Hi, I won't address your error log, or export issues. But I will advise this. When you setup zoneminder, you need to make sure it can generate a video from an event. It can appear to work fine, but ffmpeg or something may not make videos because you missed something. So I always test video generatio...

If you only have one capture card, & one camera, try to substitute another composite video source into the card, like a DVD player or anything that puts out composite video. Also try to run XawTV app & view the camera & see if it is stable there. If the card or the camera are part of the problem Xaw...
