Hello, I am running 1.34.23-bionic1 from Ubuntu iconnor PPA. The camera i am trying to use is Wyze Cam V2 running RTSP firmware. The camera works with FFMPEG but is unstable.

Re: Video format not supported

I have the same error message. The events are being saved fine and i can view them using zmninja. This issue seems to be specific to the webui only. The version i have is 1.35.18~20210212115535-focal

Re: No recording, Mode Record, Analysis/Decoding disabled

Nevermind, i had a filter which was deleting the events. Upgrading from 1.34.x to 1.35.x messed up my filter logic. Also, I enabled 'Analysis' on the cameras. They seem to be behaving now. One thing, I miss from the 'zmrecord' script is that you could directly download the mp4. In 1.35.x method, i h...

Re: No recording, Mode Record, Analysis/Decoding disabled

With 1.34.x I used to use zmrecord script as described here . @iconnor mentioned that the script is no longer required in 1.35.x. Thus i setup a camera in 'Record' mode and disabled decoding. I dont want to use Modect on this high resolution camera, and only want to record a stream 24x7 without anal...

No recording, Mode Record, Analysis/Decoding disabled

Hello, I want to record 24x7 a 1080p camera with Decoding disabled to save CPU. I have disabled Analysis and Decoding in the camera settings. Unfortunately, the camera does not record at all. There is no event appearing in the webui. The log file seem to indicate that it is recording, however there ...

Zoneminder and Camera on same VLAN or separate VLAN?

Hello, I have the camera's on a separate VLAN than Zoneminder. The downside to this approach is that all the traffic is routed via my router. Security wise this seems like a good idea though. I am curious, what is the recommended approach - ZM and Camera on the same VLAN - ZM and Camera on separate ...

Re: Incorrect stats on console

Hi, I have been able to figure this out. In version 1.32.2 stats are also stored in the MySQL database (table: Monitors) which I don't think is good data design. Stats should be stored in the Event* tables which should be linked to Monitors using the MonitorID foreign key relationship. Anyway, here...

Improve motion detection using pre-recorded videos?

Hello,

I record continuous video footage using the primary stream on the camera and do MODECT on the secondary stream. Sometimes, ZM fails to recognize motion in the secondary stream. For such cases is it possible to tune the motion detection using the primary stream recorded mp4?

Re: Record High-res H264 streams 24/7 with low CPU Load

I want to copy these continuous 10 minutes mp4 files to /archive folder. I tried to setup a filter to move these files like this thread. Unfortunately, the filter is called as soon as the mp4 is opened for writing. Is there any way to make the filter wait until the event is complete?

Re: ZM under Proxmox, very bad CPU load?

I am running a bunch of cameras in an LXD container with not so much CPU usage. The camera's frame rate are set to less than 10fps. I think Proxmox does support containers, maybe you can try that.
