Re: day/night IP bandwidth load

On topic yes the data stream is what the camera controls, CPU is probably zm coping with that increase in data. But it is int...

Re: Ubuntu 18.04: MySQL or MariaDB for Zoneminder

Don't think it makes much of a difference at the moment, I think most head towards MariaDB, but that could be more a philosophy choice that features.

Re: RSS Feed for Forum

There is some weird server config in the backend that in the past meant the server admin had to address the issues with links that should just work not. I will see if we can get fixed.

Re: No image in Monitor #2249

Melting or smeared image is often caused by ffmpeg and UDP buffer issues, easy option is to try tcp option for the camera. Assuming you are using ffmpeg monitor. I hear people have better luck with newer ffmpeg, but cannot confirm that myself. Zms error is interesting and pretty rare, in the setting...

Same problem each time. After a period of time ZM corrupts and the VM is toast.
Wouldn't happen to be recording and the period of time be long enough to fill your drive?

I run zm as VM in ESX 6.5 without issues, using StorageAreas to provide disk from another VM.

Re: ZM 1.30.4 API issue on ubuntu 17.10

Bbunge,
Caught iconnor today and he had time to spin up a 17.10 PPA now to hopefully save you some steps.
Thanks iconnor.

EDIT might still need the vlc package, need to check when I get home as Iconnor said he had issues with it building.

Re: storing and viewving storaged h.264 video

1. Possible yes, but I would not advise it as any issue in stream during record will leave you with a bad mp4.
2. Videos are passed into an mp4 container making them viewable with anything, in console we use html5 video tag.

Re: ZM 1.30.4 API issue on ubuntu 17.10

I believe you will be missing the crud plugin from /api/app/plugin it is a specific version of friendsofcake crud. Best bet would be clone zm, init submodules and get the folder.
Or iconnor ppa which won’t be missing critical components.

Re: 3 * HikVision 4MP cameras taking too much CPU

Because it always has, and is quite deeply embedded that it uses jpegs, eg live view is working with images. And to maintain that it always decodes.
People are working on, but nothing in master yet.

Re: Corrupt .mp4 file on signal loss

Not so much right now, we need to get Fragmented mp4 working then it should only affect a small segment. It could be possible to recover the frames, normally it is just the mp4 is missing data that is being written out on close.
