Re: RTSP feed from Axis camera freezes, restarts, freezes et

You did not say but I would guess you are using the H.264 stream with the ffmpeg settings? Try using the mjpg stream from the camera and the ZM remote setting. you should be able to keep using rtsp protocol. use 640x480 resolution and drop the frame rate back to 5 FPS at the camera to see if that wo...

I'm running one Vivotek IP8331 outdoor camera that works with ffmpeg and H.264 but throws streaked images every several minutes. I have turned the settings down to a bare minimum ...

Re: IP Camera lower part of image missing / streaked

You can use the ffmpeg option on Ubuntu 14.04 and it will work. Yes, ffmpeg is not on the distro but it does work with h.264 cameras. I have a Foscam h.264 working just fine. If you are using rtsp try to force TCP with the ?tcp option at the end of your camera string. Also lookk for a setting called...

Re: Zm 1.26.5 crash when i want to see system log

Possible that MySQL does not have enough connections?

edit /etc/mysql/my.cnf

look for max_connections =

and set the value higher. Suggestion use 1000

restsrt mysql and ZM or just restart the server.

Re: Beginner question: Mixing several surveillance camera so

Looks like you are mentioning the software being used to view and record the video. What is more important is what are the cameras? Specifically, are they IP cameras? If they are you should be able to use Zoneminder. It is possible to use one system to view and record video from remote locations. Ju...

Re: APT updates stopped ZoneMinder from working correctly

Looks like your issue may be caused by Reference Image Blend %age and Alarm Reference Image Blend %age not being the same value.

Re: Help reverting back from 1.27.99 to 1.27.1

May be just as easy for you to start over with a fresh install of Linux. I had to replace a hard drive on a ZM server last Monday and had my 15 camera system up and running in a bit over an hour. If you do not need the features of 1.27 I recommend you use: http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.php/Ub...

Re: Apache2 IP is different to zoneminder IP Address

Check your /etc/network/interfaces file. Normally if you get your IP address from your router you should see something like this: # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interfac...

Re: Undersized PC?

There are lots of things that can put a camera into alarm. Light and dark from passing clouds will do it in the warehouse I monitor. Your PC should do OK with those four cameras. I ran 14 IP cameras and one USB on a Dual Core 2.4 GHZ with 8 GIG of RAM on MODECT. Have moved up to a Quad Core with 8 G...

Re: red page in streaming file,local,remote

Well, it looks like you do not have your cameras configured correctly. Recheck the documentation for your cameras, set the camera resolution to match what you set for image size in ZM. What would be helpful is info on the cameras you use.
