Re: Wansview W3 camera fresh install ZM 1.32

Based on the logs it looks like zmc is having issues reading the stream. Do you have another camera you can test? This would rule out a faulty install. Used cameras can be bought for cheap. Get an old axis, which is almost guaranteed to work, and use that to prove zm is installed correctly. Then try...

Re: ZoneMinder as a could DVR for remote standalone IP cameras

I built a 4G connected ZM server here. https://forums.zoneminder.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=28775 I don't pull from the server, I only record locally, (with external remote access through openvpn) but it looks like you need about 40GB of data a month with this setup, for modest viewing.

Re: Storage path

I assume when you say storage path, you mean where videos are saved, and not where zoneminder is installed.

Re: Installing zoneminder on Ubuntu 19.10 with existing nginx installation

Installing ZM on nginx, is more work if you are not comfortable with web servers. By default it runs apache. More info will be here on these forums.

The guides on the wiki cover Ubuntu: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Ubuntu

1.32.3 is the current stable release.

Re: Zoneminder ignores Section length

6 720p at 15fps each... That is a lot depending on how many cores, and how up to date the cpu is. You only have 4, and its a VM.

Lower FPS on all cameras to something like 5, get it stable, then increase fps afterwards. Use passthrough.

Re: Wansview W3 camera fresh install ZM 1.32

Looks like remote can't parse the stream. Try ffmpeg, or libvlc source types, or a different path.

Try Onvif, and the camera web portal - there might be multiple streams.

Some cameras can offer mjpeg, and rtsp streams. Others offer only rtsp streams.

Don't put localhost in hostname for cameras, unless the camera is running on the zm server.

Re: Zoneminder ignores Section length

What is make/model of camera? What CPU are you using? How much RAM? What is FPS and Resolution of camera?

Sounds like you are running out of memory/cpu or its a camera that isn't supported well.

Section length is 600 by default. That means the camera records 10 minutes at a time.

Re: Zoneminder works only after reboot for 20 secs

It's possible that the camera is not supported. Did you try libVLC after removing max FPS? If you can get it to work for 20 seconds, it's likely there is a way to get it to work 100%. It sounds like an issue of memory, or CPU not being able to keep up. However, it looks like ffmpeg doesn't like the ...

Use a new hard drive, or reformat the existing one, is the easiest.

Don't follow random blog instructions for ZM. This author could've posted to the wiki, but he decided to copy it and post to his own wordpress.
