Re: convert ZM/zms output stream to RTSP (for Amazon Alexa)

This may be a very unhelpful reply and I may have missed the entire point of what you are trying to do, but I view my local cameras through their direct streams with Amazon fire tablets using an app called TinyCam Pro. It works very well for me and I don't put any load on the ZM server that way.

Re: ZM Docker only?

Valid point. In my work in enterprise storage distributed systems we could find no measurable performance bottleneck or adverse issues while running the services in or out of a container. I'm no expert on the various DB and webserver options, but it seems that those that are could probably agree on ...

ZM Docker only?

I've been involved with the ZM community on and off for many years and have witnessed the evolution of the product. Recently it seems there have been some big steps forward and one of them is running ZM in a Docker container. I've tried it out and worked with containers pretty extensively on other e...

Re: Source Type cURL doesn't work in 1.29

Thanks for the reply! I'm not particular to any source type so now that you have told me that ffmpeg will work with digest auth I will give it a try. I always use vlc to analyse the streams so that is where I came up with the odd resolution and it worked well on my other instance of ZM so I assumed ...

Re: Source Type cURL doesn't work in 1.29

Ok... after trying a bunch of things I seem to have the streams working now, but I'm not sure what exactly fixed it. I will try a fresh install to see if it would work without adding the libcurl4-gnutls-dev:amd64 package that I thought was missing and required. I noticed that several of the monitors...

Re: Source Type cURL doesn't work in 1.29

I am using the cURL source type because both camera types require digest authentication and as far as I know that was the main reason cURL was introduced and the only option in ZM to handle digest auth. These are the two different cameras: http://www.axis.com/us/en/products/axis-q1614 http://www.sam...

Source Type cURL doesn't work in 1.29

I can't seem to get any monitors that use a Source type = cURL. I have the same cameras working on a ZM 1.28.107 install side by side. The monitor configs are identical and both are running on Ubuntu 14.04. I thought that the fact that ffmpeg was not installed on the new 1.29 system was the problem ...

Re: ZM 1.29 Ubuntu 14.04 missing ffmpeg

I was thinking that it might have been intended to be included in the ZM installation.

ZM 1.29 Ubuntu 14.04 missing ffmpeg

Is ffmpeg supposed to be installed as part of the zoneminder package? I think I had to install it after the fact on my previous version of ZM.

I could not get monitors with cURL to work and determined that this must be the reason.

Re: Ubuntu 14.04 - No installation candidate

I'm seeing a similar issue, but not on an ARM.

I tried the same install instructions and ended up with 1.26.5.

Does anyone know if the PPA is broken or if this is an issue with a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04 server?

Re: Iinstall of 1.26 gets 1.25?

I've tried that exact procedure and ended up with 1.25. This thread was really based on that problem and it seems that it could be related to the minor modifications that are made to the 12.04 build on my Utilite Pro system. I thought they only changed the kernel, but nothing else explains why the P...

Re: Iinstall of 1.26 gets 1.25?

FYI...
Turns out I was mistaken about the base package that I get with a clean 12.04 install. It is 1.25.

Re: Iinstall of 1.26 gets 1.25?

I'm happy to try anything at this point. I really want to be on as recent of a release as possible.
