Re: Ubuntu 18.04: MySQL or MariaDB for Zoneminder

Mariadb seems to work better for me. Had to replace a 17 camera server a while back and went with Bionic and Mariadb. System seems to use less memory than with MySQL.

Re: No errors, "capturing", but no image.

Camera resolution in Zoneminder does not match camera output. Use VLC (Tools, Media Information, Codec) to check camera Display Resolution.

Bionic Server on Pi 3 B+

Playing with my Pi 3 B+ I was able to get a copy of Bionic Mate running with the WIFI enabled. So I thought why not pare it down to just a server version. I uninstalled Mate, added server, a swap file and tweaked the network to be activated with netplan. Also fixed a couple of errors that came up at...

Re: Spiders

As you said spiders like bugs. Bugs are attracted to IR light from the cameras thus the big hairy ones weave a web right in front. I solved the problem by using LED floods located away from the camera that light the area to be watched.

Re: Ubuntu 18.04 ZM Installation Help

The best way to get a bare minimum install of Ubuntu is to use the MinimalCD installer: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD This downloads a file called mini.iso. Burn it to a CD or make a bootable USB Thumbdrive. Plenty of instructions out there to do that... Boot the PC from t...

Re: Source Type: Web Site

Do you have them set up as multi server?
You also need to tell us your Linux distro and version.

Re: New install 1.32.3 on Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS

If you use the Ubuntu install script on the Zoneminder Wiki the install works without issues!

Re: Is ZoneMinder good for securing/rebroadcasting RTSP streams?

We have a system set up that uses a LAN network of 192.168.1.0/24 and the Zoneminder server has a static IP on this network. All the cameras, on the same physical ethernet, are assigned IP's in the 192.168.10.0/24 subnet. The single NIC on the Zoneminder server has a second IP address in the 192.168...

Re: how to setup to recieve stream from raspberry pi

ZM is a security camera system not HD movie maker! 5 FPS should be sufficient. Max FPS in Zoneminder settings is for local cameras and that setting should be blank.

Re: how to setup to recieve stream from raspberry pi

If you can stream the camera with VLC use the same string and resolution in ZM with ffmpeg. It will work but you may have to play with the settings.

Re: Authorize various accounts in shortcuts!!

By accounts do you mean login accounts or have you put the cameras into groups?
