Re: ZM console web page -no link to monitor the cam

According to the ZM wiki, the monitor should be a link that I can click to view the cam output. It is never a link. Does anyone have it as a link in the console? It is rendered as "not-a-link" if the camera is not functioning or not enabled. So :- Have you set the camera's parameters correctly unde...

Re: Certain event directories missing

I forgot posting on the weekend means no one sees your post. I've seen something like this and not understood the mechanism. Sometimes, an event in the list will appear as "Event-220(r)" and will show up as having no frames. There often IS a directory with some content in from "around" that time +/...

Re: [Help] zoneminder 2x recording

That looks normal, in my events directory there are actual numbered directories containing the events, and symbolic links from "fake" directories that have the name of the cameras drwxr-xr-x 2 apache apache 4096 Mar 30 00:02 10 drwxr-xr-x 3 apache apache 4096 Apr 1 15:13 4 drwxr-xr-x 3 apache apache...

Re: How to export an event as video?

Have you created the video first? I think you can only EXPORT a video through that dialogue if one exists . You seem to have said "don't export anything, except for a video (if it exists), and it doesn't, so do nothing". :) [EDIT: I just tested this: I went to an event, hit Export with the same opti...

Re: Saving Videos created by FFMPEG to new location

This means that any videos marked for archiving will, after 7 days, be converted into an AVI I spoke too soon. Although the filter is there, and marked to run in the background, it won't create a video when needed. Something was due to be archived to video this evening, and nothing happened. Going ...

Re: Saving Videos created by FFMPEG to new location

... correct 'camera' name.. and i know how to make a 'current' date. I just need to [...] date of recording instead of current date.. I've been playing with this a little, and seem to be at the same brick wall you are :) I can change "Event-12345-r1-s1.avi" to "CAM01-12345-r1-s1.avi" by changing th...

Dark Frame subtraction

To steal an idea from the astronomy crowd, what about being able to use "dark frame subtraction" to cut down on hot-pixel and fixed noise features in cameras to make them work a little better in low light settings? The camera would only need to be profiled once, with lens covered/in dark, to gather ...

Naming convention for "downloaded video" clips

Hi! I'm in the process of setting up and experimenting with ZoneMinder 1.25.0, and have got most of it under control (I think, anyway!) but hit a problem with video downloads. I've configured the option for "downloading" a video clip (using FFMPEG) to get me a compliant AVI video :- Options/Images/F...
