Re: What camera from DX.com to work with ZM?

Indeed, but if so many get a good review, I assume it may not be that bad? Ideally, I read, maybe here, that a cabled, analog camera would be better than any IP camera. On the other hand, there's no warranty that a 4-channel USB converter would be up to the job, especially in ZM, plus it really is n...

What camera from DX.com to work with ZM?

Hi there, As some may recall, I was very unfortunate in getting ZM to work (and didn't succeed), and my reasoning is, if the camera works with ZM, it will work truly anywhere. I have tried many IP camera softwares on various iOS devices, as well as Nokia cell phones, but never got the stability I am...

Will ZM play nice with a Raspberry Pi set up as an IP camera

Hello there,

I found that most IP cameras tend to be very expensive and not necessarily having good video quality and stable. The question is, would the Raspberry Pi be able to serve multiple cameras images, at 30fps 640x480 minimum, to notoriously picky ZoneMinder?

Re: ZoneMinder 1.25x doesn't send any email alert, or SMS al

Both (Zip and email) works in my system (debian wheezy server). And also worked in Zoneminder installed in a Cubox (ubuntu, archlinux, debian), a Guruplug server plus (debian), a Raspberry Pi (debian) and some Intel based computers (debian, ubuntu, archlinux) I´ve played with for years... So, it's ...

Re: ZoneMinder 1.25x doesn't send any email alert, or SMS al

0, ok but ive personally never used usb cams. So i cant really help there. But if they can be seen in linux then zm should be able to use them 1, i can see that point but also the reverse is true if it deleted stuff on its own then zm could be critisised. Plus if you use seperate partitions for you...

Re: ZoneMinder 1.25x doesn't send any email alert, or SMS al

0- you're assuming wrong. These are standard USB webcams. 1- what's the goal of disabling a filter that is essential to stability? For information, one can't just go in the listing of events to delete a few when disk has 0 bytes left. Deleting files by hand leads to inconsistency in the database tha...

Re: ZoneMinder 1.25x doesn't send any email alert, or SMS al

(...) When did you made the poll?.... based in your "huge" experience (25 posts/4 months in the forum)? This is not true, Zoneminder works in many different Linux distributions (I tested it myself, not talking for free), in many different hardwares (ARM based, Intel based, etc), again, tested in pe...

Re: ZoneMinder 1.25x doesn't send any email alert, or SMS al

It seems that not so many people were able to get ZoneMinder to work. It appears as if there were too many components and sub-components not playing well with now-standard Ubuntu defaults (such as disk encryption). If you primary goal is to tinker with videosurveillance and learn a few things in the...

ZM's zmfilter throws "zip error: 4:", then can't upload ?

Re: Mocord

As I last replied: "TAR or ZIP files aren't created.". So, logically, nothing is uploaded. That's the reason why I asked for a detailed setup of yours.

ZM 1.25 on Ubuntu 12.04LTS doesn't zip nor upload on FTP

Hello all, I disabled the home directory encryption as this caused random issues with other applications. However, as I tried to make ZM work and upload events, I get tons of this message: 2013-01-20 09:55:25.394360 zmfilter 12627 ERR Zip error: 4 zmfilter.pl 2013-01-20 09:55:18.155950 zmfilter 1262...

Re: Mocord

Could you please post a detailed setup about how you actually managed to make ZM upload records? Here, it just records locally, but fails to zip and upload them.

Unable to probe for cameras

Hello all, in my battle to get ZoneMinder to work and instead of trying to guess the correct settings, I am trying to make it detect connected USB webcams. Nothing fancy here, although I still wonder why ZM wouldn't simply auto-detect cameras as every other software do. However, each time I click th...

Re: ZoneMinder 1.25.x doesn't upload to FTP server or send e

Rinstalled from scratch on a different distro. Same result: can't upload. Means useless DVR.

TAR or ZIP files aren't created.
How do I solve this?
