Relation between FPS and good motion capture?

This is not really strictly a hardware question I suppose, but I did not know where else to post.. What is the relation between FPS and successful motion detection? Does more FPS = more reliable motion detection? If so, at what point does an increase in FPS not provide any additional improvement in ...

PV-143: occasional 'bouncing' images

About once a day I seem to get 'bouncing' images from my cameras...if I pull up a montage view I can see all of the views bouncing up and down by a little bit, all windows show the same amount of movement. Sometimes it will stop on its own, other times I need to restart the system. I am assuming thi...

Another minor issue, but probably not really a bug: When in hashed auth mode I was not able to view any events, just got a broken image in the view (stream or still). I turned off auth, restarted ZM, and the issue went away. I then turned hashed auth back on and restarted ZM and it now it works fine...

I installed RC2, no issues with the build or db upgrade, went smooth..however..I still have a broken 'cycle' view when using streaming. The stills view in cycle mode seems to work OK. It looks like scale is still being set to '0' when in stream view: http://arcas/cgi-bin/nph-zms?mode=jpeg&monitor=3&...

Thanks for this. I couldn't get the cycle view to have your problem with scale here, so if you have any more info on that it would be useful. I have found and fixed the problem with single images (I assume you meant from the cycle view also) though and it will be in RC2 up later today (hopefully). ...

broken cycle view and no stills

I installed 1.23.0-RC1 last night and have everything working pretty well, but I have a few issues. Initially the 'cycle' view was broken. It seems that zm_html_view_cycle.php was picking up a bad value for '$scale' so I just hardcoded it to '100' as a workaround, works OK now. The other issue I hav...

To build ffmpeg from svn do:

Code: Select all

svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/ffmpeg/trunk ffmpeg
From there just run ./configure in the ffmpeg dir, then 'make' and 'make install'. I already had about a billion development packages installed on this machine so I did not have any issues with the build, ymmv...

I ended up removing the ZoneMinder package (Kubuntu 7.10) and built 1.22.3 from source after removing ffmpeg and then building my own copy of ffmpeg from svn. Works great now. Just could not get anything but corrupted video exports when using the packaged ffmpeg. I used the following config for Zone...

decent and cheap IR illuminator?

Hey all, I have a camera watching the side of my house that works well enough but its IR LED's are weak. I was considering picking up a IR illuminator but about all I see is stuff on eBay from Hong Kong, I would like to avoid the long wait... Can anyone recommend an inexpensive IR illuminator that s...
