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

... No.. Oh :( I've gone at it laterally, if I can't get the date the event was created ... On the web interface, under "Configure Options/Images/FFMPEG_OUTPUT_OPTIONS" which was just "-r 25" I put this hideous lot ...

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 ...

Re: Saving Videos created by FFMPEG to new location

-r 12 -s 640x480 /media/Archive/ZM-Video/"`date`".avi The one that is saved to the new folder has the FPS all out of wack. I'm trying to tune it so the fps show up correctly again. Just a wild guess here ... I think this is because Zoneminder will create some options, prepended, and a filename, app...

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...
