Can you set the frame rate to 1 per second and then set the skip frames to 3599?

I had the same thing start happening yesterday too. What did you discover? Maybe I can fix my system too. Unfortunately in trying to figure what went wrong I went to the Zones screen and resaved the zones on one of my cameras and now I get an error that ./zm/Frames is marked as crashed and should be...

If any one finds them selves in the situation above and needs to rename a bunch of files you might find this helpful. I'm running Fedora 6. From a command prompt I did a yum install mmv. Next, I changed to the events folder ( cd /var/www/html/zm/events) and, since I have quite a few files changed in...

Older events are missing pictures

I've had ZM running for the past 6 days now and I was looking through the event nagivator and noticed that for events older than 24 hours there were some broken image link icons and just image icons where the images are normally displayed. If I click to play and event with a broken image icon the ev...

Thank you. That is what I was looking for. Some time when the overlapping stuff buggs me enough I may play around with the other values to come up with a layout where it will all fit.

davekelly1979, I think what you want to do is activate the PurgeWhenFull filter. I'm still new to ZM so this may not be the quickest/easiest way to get to it but I think it works. I haven't filled up my drive yet to test it. Open an events window. I just click on the total number of events value fro...

While I'm still learning about ZM and how to get it set up right I have a few things figured out with the help of the manual. Pre Event Image Buffer: this is the number of frames/pictures to keep once ZM has determined that motion has occurred. These are kept in RAM since not all of them are necessa...

How to change Event Navigator preview size

How can I change the size of the preview frame in the Event Navigator? It is set slightly smaller than the original picture so I can't read the date and time since some of the pixels are missing.

I'm running 1.22.3.

Thank you.

I have had great luck creating a fast acting preclusive zone which is either where the light is at or at a small spot that lights up quickly. I only occasionally get an event trigger when the light trips because of wind or something like it and not because a person walked through.

I looked and searched through the README and only found a description of each. My question doesn't seem to be answered unless by "manual" there is another one somewhere. Mathematically both can produce the exact result so why bother programming for both when one or the other will do the same thing u...

difference between 4fps-skip 3 and 1fps?

What is the difference between setting a particular frame rate such as 1fps and setting a higher frame rate and skipping some such as 4fps skip 3? Wont the results be the same or is motion sensing or something like that better with the higher frame rate with the skips than just a slower frame rate? ...
