Re: Zoneminder ignores Section length

What is make/model of camera? What CPU are you using? How much RAM? What is FPS and Resolution of camera?

Sounds like you are running out of memory/cpu or its a camera that isn't supported well.

Section length is 600 by default. That means the camera records 10 minutes at a time.

Re: Zoneminder works only after reboot for 20 secs

It's possible that the camera is not supported. Did you try libVLC after removing max FPS? If you can get it to work for 20 seconds, it's likely there is a way to get it to work 100%. It sounds like an issue of memory, or CPU not being able to keep up. However, it looks like ffmpeg doesn't like the ...

Re: Mocord running all the time (filling my disk)

Use a new hard drive, or reformat the existing one, is the easiest.

I updated the wiki with some instructions for adding a storage area:

Re: Can't login after enable password to login!!

Don't follow random blog instructions for ZM. This author could've posted to the wiki, but he decided to copy it and post to his own wordpress. If he puts ads on his site, he could be making money off of bbhunge's hard work in maintaining the wiki. Not nice. Use the install guides in the wiki or the...

Re: The requested address '/zm/api/' was not found on this server.

What guide did you use to install? Is this on arm or x86/64? Try the following per: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Debian_8_64-bit_with_Zoneminder_1.29.0_the_Easy_Way?title=Debian_8_64-bit_with_Zoneminder_1.29.0_the_Easy_Way&oldid=14763 (This used to be required, I'm not sure if it is anymore...) chown...

Re: Zoneminder works only after reboot for 20 secs

Is that maximum FPS setting on ZM? Blank that out. Max FPS on ZM can cause these types of issues. On the camera website, set it to 720p and say 5 FPS, and then try the stream path in ZM. Get it working, check the CPU load, then increase either resolution or FPS afterwards. Don't try to start with 2K...

Re: The requested address '/zm/api/' was not found on this server.

That is expected for the path /zm/api, as I noticed that recently. Or at least, it appears to be setup right.

Try adding authentication to the http request.
e.g.

Code: Select all

curl -XPOST -d "user=admin&pass=password" http://<ipaddress>/zm/api/host/getVersion.json

Re: Help: Which brand is this ip camera?

Finally, we have the image sensor. DSCN2409.JPG And then the back of the image sensor. DSCN2411.JPG I didn't include the LED board, which has I think 10mm LEDs on it, and a light detector. If you want to disconnect the LED board, or the IR cut filter solenoid switch, it's possible to just unplug the...

Re: Help: Which brand is this ip camera?

You came through with the pictures, so I'll post some from a 9804 Foscam that I had hanging around. I'm still curious what kind of main CPU is on the long board on your camera. Unfortunately, I didn't take a zoomed out picture, but the design is essentially the same. There is the one long board whic...

Re: Zoneminder works only after reboot for 20 secs

Do you have the right resolution? VLC will output it.

What FPS and Resolution? Try lowering it. If you are on a SBC or an old system, it might not be able to keep up. You can also try passthrough.

Are you using x86-64 or ARM?

Re: Mocord running all the time (filling my disk)

External HDDs are not a problem. Post the output of lsblk and df -h Also the output of stat . in the root directory of the external hdd. Take a screenshot of storage settings on the global console, and in the camera. Alternatively, you could follow the old guide on the wiki for 1.30.4 and earlier wi...

Portable ZM Recording Station

I built up a portable ZM station for recording outdoors, and traveling. It requires 120V, so it's not solar or battery powered, but it can be put anywhere you can get an extension cord, and an outdoor outlet. Using an RPI, UPS, POE, fan, ext. HDD, a waterproof fiberglass junction box, and a cell hot...
