Re: FFMPEG passthrough can not play video & what are best libraries?

Also you cannot change the FPS of the camera from the web interface of the IPCam App but u can directly from the phone inside the settings of the app.

Re: FFMPEG passthrough can not play video & what are best libraries?

After you get it working on VLC look into the tools menu -> codec (Ctrl+J)
to get the exact resolution especially Android IP webcam have some "interesting" resolutions.
u can change that from the android app (video options)

I noticed that every few day one of the restarts of the VM fails. Sometimes the manual restart is successful but some also fail with VM freezing. I noticed that w...

Re: Netdata stats

Does running netdata interfere with zoneminder mysql apache2?

What version to install repository (UBUNTU 18.04=1.9 - 20.04=1.19 or install by script?

Re: Improving performance in constant preview scenario

Use low bandwidth option in zmninja settings.

Every monitor will update every 10 secs or something.
i think there is an option to change that.

Re: Lights by night and shadows

You could try to reduse the "Max Alarmed Area" & "Max Filtered Area "pixels to about half the area (or whatever is reasonable to ur case) another tweak is to increase the "Min Pixel Threshold" Any changes need to be retested during the day. Min/Max Pixel Threshold (0-255) In the AlarmedPixel layer o...

Re: /dev/shm increasing TO 100%

Changed the offending cameras source path from a http to a rtsp stream and its more stable now. Does a hiccup every now and then but shm does not fill up. My 2 daily state changes day/Night are enough to reset shm size. Keeping my shm size check script as a safety. Thanks for all the help and sugges...

Re: /dev/shm increasing TO 100%

As it stands now /dev/shm rises about 10% every hour which means every 6 hours zoneminder restarts via script which checks /dev/shm usage %.

But I also do a state change every 12 hours or so same affect as a restart.
will look into the monitor the remains in memory.
