What instructions did you use to install Zoneminder?
Or did you use the pre-built image?

Re: Firefox hangs on live view of high res camera

Firefox recently made some changes to its rendering engine. Not sure if this is causing issues. As for the Montage view, Firefox has always had issues with more than 5 or 6 cams. There is a fix: Enter about:config in the address bar, press enter scroll down to or search for browser.cache.check_doc_f...

Re: zoneminder.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'

Allow me to start again for my 2nd post. I installed v 1.32 from the Kubuntu 20.04LTS repository, NOT 1.34. I have since upgraded to v 1.34.18 and the same error occurred in the config file with a hashtag in front of 'User=www-data'. I corrected that install issue and now have a new issue: mark@AMD...

Re: Unable to connect to ZM db.could not find driver [Debian buster]

What install instructions did you use? And, Buster is a Debian distro. Ubuntu is not. Maybe you should give us more info about your hardware and double check which version of Linux you use.

Yes, looks like the "normal" values have gotten messed up.

Re: Firefox hangs on live view of high res camera

Never have had an issue with Firefox. Have had to tweak some settings to display more than a couple of monitors in Montage view. Most of my cams are at 640x480 and I usually chide folks for trying to make Zoneminder a high res camera system. Am currently doing a test on USB cams. Will look into Fire...

Re: UPS POWEROUT event to trigger Zoneminder

apcupsd on Ubuntu will do a system shutdown when the battery runs out. I have had this happen several times and had no file or database corruption. Since you are changing the run state of Zoneminder when the UPS goes on battery, when the server restarts the Zoneminder run state will be as it was whe...

Re: Extremely low monitor FPS

First off I am not a fan of running Zoneminder on a VM server. Others have done it with success, so I am told. I still feel that you can do better on an old PC. My current production system is on an old quad core i7 with a 120 GB SSD for the OS and a 1TB conventional HD for event storage. Have sever...

Re: Installation health check

I have installed ZM1.34 on Ubuntu 20.04 and I am delighted by what ZM does. However, I am such a newbie to Ubuntu and ZM that I cannot determine whether my installation is working properly or not. During the installation process, I did NOT install or configure any sort of SQL or Apache anything. Th...

Re: No feed for certain RTSP cameras

Best thing to do with a Pi install is start off with a low cam resolution, get it to work then go higher. The Pi is not very powerful. In VLC you need to check the actual resolution: Use VLC (Tools, Media Information, Codec) to check camera Display Resolution. Often this is different from what you e...
