Re: Error on some images

Likely a UDP error.

Use a Source string like this:
rtsp://192.168.1.100/live2.sdp?tcp

The "?tcp" sets up to use TCP which is more reliable than UDP with cameras. Could also be a problem with your version of FFMPEG.

This is using the H.264 stream with FFMPEG

Not sure if this will help but I'm running a Dell Optiplex 755 Core 2 Duo 2.6 GHZ processor, 8 GIG DDR2 RAM, 250 GIG hard drive on Ubuntu 12.04 with ZM 1.26.4.

Foscam and ONVIF?

I recently obtained a Foscam FI9821W V2 PT Camera. It seems to have a lot of features and I have been able to get it working with Zoneminder. I noticed that after a firmware update the camera has a port setting for ONVIF (see http://www.onvif.org/). I was able to download and install a Windows clien...

Re: Controled Camera Preset Display

I've discovered that ZM is resetting the camera name and turning on Display Camera Name in my Foscom FI9821W V2. If I use just the presets the Display Camera Name stays off. If I use the pan or tilt control then click a preset the camera name is changed to the selected preset and the Display Camera ...

Controled Camera Preset Display

The image/display on a controlled PT camera with presets has a black box at the top of the image which displays the last preset used.

Is there a way to get rid of this box short of turning off presets?

Thanks!

Re: ZM 1.26.4 with Foscam FI9821W V2

I discovered that ZM is trying to send control signals to <ip-address>:80. The Foscam FI9821W V2 comes set to use port 88 or port https port 443. So, to get the pan-tilt and preset controls to work I changed the camera configuration to port 80. Here are my settings: Source Type Ffmpeg Function Modec...

ZM 1.26.4 with Foscam FI9821W V2

I have a Foscam FI9821W V2 installed on ZM 1.26.4 and am having problems getting the control to work. I used the Preset for the FI9821W that is built into 1.26.4 and filled in the appropriate data with no luck. Video works fine under FFMPEG. Here is my Source Path: rtsp://user:password@ip-address:88...

Re: Latest ZM on ubuntu 13.10 server

Sorry for the problems. Ubuntu 13.10 has some changes that we've not been able to overcome...yet. I've been able to get cameras to work, capture motion, view stills and export video but not view the stream. Also, the Launchpad repository does not have the packages for ZM 1.26.4 which will install on...

Re: Remote Host Path

Try FFMPEG Source Type: Ffmpeg Source Path: rtsp://192.168.1.1/user=icaps&password=&channel=1&stream=0.sdp?tcp Not sure if you will need the "real_stream--rtp-caching=100" or not. The "?tcp" tells the system to use TCP and not UDP so you will have better video. Whatever you get to work in VLC should...

On November 3 there was an update on the Launchpad PPA repository from 1.26.4-2 to 1.26.4-3. If you have installed Zoneminder before this date you can do an upgrade to the new version with: apt-get update then apt-get upgrade. The install script will try to stop your Zoneminder but it is a good idea...
