Re: No https capture support? http proxy info

I don't know the answer to that because I never tried https.

But since zoneminder itself requires an http server you can use that same http server as your proxy, just an idea.

Re: Foscam FI8919W Control

Check the .pm file and find the section like:

sub moveConLeft {
LOOK HERE
}

There will be a line like: my $cmd = "ptzctrl?act=zoomin";

If you access http://ip of camera/ptzctrl?act=zoomin in your web browser what happens? Of course yours will not say "ptzctrl?act=zoomin" but something else.

Control of PTZ IP camera with authentication

I have a generic IP camera that I am trying to support with authentication. I start with this script: http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.php/Wanscam_FR4020A2_PT However the problem is the authentication. I always get a 401 unauthorized in the zoneminder log. I can access the camera URL and control...

H.264 Camera Distortion Periodically

I have setup a generic IP camera that seems to work OK. However in Zoneminder I am forced to use the source type Ffmpeg because that camera sends non-hexadecimal characters in the RTSP session ID and Zoneminder only expects hexidecimal in that field, so I do not have the setting Source: Remote + RTS...

Re: Randomly not recording

I fix the issue by deleting all the events and starting over.

But now my 2nd system does the same?

How can I ensure recording continues without deleting everything? It sort of defeats the purpose of recoding.

Re: Randomly not recording

I am using mode: "record" w/o any analysis. So even to record w/o motion I need faster hardware?

Randomly not recording

I have an issue where randomly some camera will stop recording. I can still view it live! I've looked at the logs and there's nothing relevant. How can I ensure my cameras are always recording? There's plenty of free disk space. [ 15.190257] type=1505 audit(1308872556.188:11): operation="profile_loa...

Local display

Say I am running zoneminder on a dedicated machine already with no GUI.

Is there some simple straightforward way to show on the display the camera image?

If it is the camera power supply I suspect it could be overloaded a little.... the box says one rating the power supply says another and both are a big range I think 3-5 and 5-7 Amps are the conflicting numbers. But also today I installed a PTZ camera with a separate power supply and I do see some l...

I already have solid copper heatsinks applied to a clean surface. I really doubt it is heat, after changing to RGB555 the lines are much reduced but simply not 100% done.

Yes but I think the reason many are on CentOS is due to not having to update the OS every 6-12 months. So Fedora will be no help for that.

Probably your distribution is blocking it because its an unknown card.

Check in /etc/modprobe.d/ directory and see if there is any file called blacklists. This is what openSUSE does.

If you do modprobe bttv there will be a very long delay but it will load fine... hopefully.
