Re: Latests builds crash

FWIW, I'm running 20.04.2lts and 1.35.19. It's got problems of course, but not crashing.

Just went to 1.35.20, also not crashing.

Re: Prevent camera from recording for extended period

Perhaps Options->Config->EVENT_CLOSE_MODE applies?

Re: Video format not supported

I have found the various "auto" settings don't always work. forcing one or another can make it work.

Ditto on playback, some cams I need to force mjpeg, or it just spins the wheel "loading".

Looks like you need to do the mysql password bit again - drop the zm database, make password, then recreate it with zm_create.sql.
I had the same problem.

Good luck.

Re: Problem connecting cameras even basic usb webcam

There's a way, but the easiest thing is just use the RELEASE version 1.34.23.
1.35.x is a work in progress. Most times it works, but it gets broken a lot.
Assuming you stall have other machine, play with 1.35 on that...

Re: Master on Ubuntu 20.04

Sometimes it's worth running the update command as a user with greater DB privileges. Stay on 1.34 is the option if you prefer not to have to fiddle about. Thanks. I don't know how to run "update command as a user with greater DB privileges." That's a sudo su command line, and that ERROR 1419 (HY00...

Re: Master on Ubuntu 20.04

I guess I'm missing something or the latest three or so packages are broken somehow. I've done a fresh install of 1.34.x , and it's functional. "Upgrade" to master, and it's broken. mysql password problem. apt remove zoneminder (master) and apt install zoneminder (1.34) and it works again. root@doug...

Re: Cannot use "8 hour" or view "all events"

Dunno.
Quite a few problems with this build - but there's a newer one out today you should try.
Or go back to a release (1.34.x) version.

Re: Images not deleted when using filter Purge when disk full

Emptied trash? (not sure what all you've done.)
How did you install, on what Linux system?
You speak of images - what all are you recording, and is anything being deleted from disk? Like .mp4 or just .jpg?

It is set when disk percent is greater the 50 Purge all first 800 entries.
Have you tried fewer than 800? That's a lot for one pass.
Any clues in zmfilter.log?

Recheck your filter. There may be some changes you need to make.
