Re: Unable to Open Input ... due to: Operation now in progress

That error message usually means that ffmpeg can't connect to the camera. Double check your auth and url, etc. verify that the same url works in vlc. make sure there are no typos. The MaxFPS and AlarmFPS should be larger than what the camera will send, just to limit zm running away if it can't conne...

Re: Zone definition region points

Yeah, what have you set for your max fps, max alarm fps, etc? When using videostream, the camera will determine the fps. When using snapshot, zmc will be limited by whatever is set in those fields. There is also an analysis fps setting, which tells zm how many frames to use for modect. So you can re...

Re: Separate Servers, one console

You don't need to stream one to other like that. You have 1 db, and some kind of unified storage, using nfs, or whatever. Either zm server will list all monitors and will show the feeds from both servers (live feeds will actually hit the remote server). In my storageareas branch, each machine can ha...

Re: Does ZM 1.30.x use hardware acceleration?

I would like to engage your assistance with all this as well. I got as far as generating an ffmpeg build that had some hwaccel support built in, but then had to move on to other things. Perhaps together we can solve it. I think what needs to be done is that we will have to package ffmpeg in the zone...

Re: Zone definition region points

Hmm... that is interesting. I can't imagine why it would be slower. Which process is using more cpu?

Re: Banana Pi suitability for ZM? or other micro computer?

I am currently using a pi3 to do 1080p with motion detection at 2fps. zma uses about 20% processor. Long term we may leverage the hardware h264 decode/encode... but for now it's still quite capable. I don't think there is really enough ram to put the database on it as well. I have the db on another ...

Re: Zone definition region points

You can build from source (maybe) on 12.04, but I can't provide binary packages via ppa for it. It's just too old.

Re: h.264 pass-through

I don't think the latest code will show any difference. in h264 video and audio tracks are given a timestamp as to when they should play. It is entirely possible that we are not converting them right. They have different time scales. There are other issues as well. This code is experimental. thatguy...

Re: 1.30.2 Test Results - Cycle

I'm pretty sure that setting has no effect. It is only used when entering the monitor capture dimensions if you have preserve aspect ratio checked.

The cycle will use whatever dimensions are entered for the monitor without referencing this setting.

Re: Setting up disks

Yeah that sounds fine. Please note that I'm not actually sure that the Purple video disks are really any better than any other disk. I think their firmware is just tweaked a bit for bigger write buffers or something. But regular disks work just fine for me. I like to use SSD's for /, no raid, multip...

Re: Problemas GV-600 y Pico 2000

The pico 2000 will show up as 1 device, with 4 channels.

To help you further we are going to need the output of...

lspci
dmesg

and whatever module settings you have tried for the gv-600.
