2cif recording - force ZM to display the full height image..

I installed Zoneminder 1.24.1 on CentOS.

I want to record in 2cif.

How can I force/hack Zoneminder into stretching the 288 pixel high image back to 576 pixels high when viewed?

I dont care that all my downloads and exports will be 'broken' (require manual adjustments) unless thats easy to fix...

Re: 24h recording

How can i set it up to 24h Recordings and how to view the recordings? Create the 'monitors' (cameras) in the software. To access ZM you probably need to go to http://ipofthemachine after ensuring apache is running - sudo /etc/init.d/httpd start. You can probably use the pre set settings to make you...

Of course the movement will lag... 0.25 fps... Thats extremely time lapsed. Try 1fps and no frame skip for smoother (all be it still really time lapsed) movement.

This has solved the issue which cropped up for me after 1.23 release.

Thank you very much, maybe put this fix into the new release? Or include a toggle for new/old behaviour regarding rewinding.

Hi, I checked the setting on both boxes and its set to 25fps on each. Fast forward in normal mode doesnt appear to be working, and the new dvr interface doesnt seem ready for my users just yet. (i understand its beta) On one of my boxes i start playback and choose 25x rate, the bar at the bottom scr...

Normal playback interface: Set bandwidth to high (machines on same lan) Play back on a camera, choose rate at 4x, result is that the actual play speed seems to be 1fps (ie not fast forwarding) but the grey bar...

Change in the way fast forward works?

I think the way fast forward works has changed. I remember previously recording at 1 fps and then asking it to play back at a rate of lets say 10x and you would see each frame as I would expect but at 10fps. Now when I fast forward at 10x I see every 10th frame meaning that things could have flown p...

The way I tuned my zones was to walk out in front of the camera and stand at the furthest distance from the camera where it would be useful to detect motion. Then I replayed the footage and took a still of my standing away from the camera, loaded it into a photo editor and cropped the image to the s...

This card for me at least outputs mpeg2 video on /dev/video0. Surely this is going to upset ZM?
