Re: Improving motion detection

Start with the predefined settings and then tweak. Working with percentages rather than pixels also seems easier.

These things just take time.

Re: No display in Montage - or ability to see recordings

What documentation did you use for your install?

Might be an underlying directory link level issue.

Re: ZoneMinder integration with Home Assistant

Is this a mobile app? (f so, then refer to the Mobile Apps forum section).

Sounds like an API issue. Look around for how to test if you've properly configured API use on ZM (web server is more so the issue).

Re: ZMninja - Video is not playable on Events

Are you having issues via web browser on your phone? What about via web browser on a computer? If only on the phone then you're most likely going to have to use ADB to trace things down. Am assuming that it's not a basic API problem (which would show as problems logging in and such; a problem that I...

Re: ZmNinja does not play event footage

Check your cameras' resolution.

Here's a thread on this (NOTE: this issue should be addressed within the apps forum section as it really only seems an issue with apps/smart phones):

Re: What version of mariaDB to use (Debian [sid])?

Installed version 10.1.37 (was running 10.3.11 when I had a corruption, and then attempts to reinstall was trying, unsuccessfully, to install version 10.3.12). Only been running for a couple of hours now but I figure I'll sign off on it.

Re: InnoDB: Corruption of an index tree: table `zm`.`Logs` index `GEN_CLUST_INDEX'

Not sure what was the source of all this, but I suspect it might have been due to running mariaDB 10.3 (had 10.3.11 running and after doing an update it tried pulling in version 10.3.12 after which the config and install would fail no matter what I did; so, I ended up installing mariaDB 10.1.37 and ...

Re: How to recreate ZM database?

I managed to utilize the basic info for dropping tables from the article above and then recreate using the commands I noted. Had to also remove a couple of mysql (table?) files (referenced by errors when restoring from DB backup file).

This is another reminder to do backups (at least config data)!

How to recreate ZM database?

After having issues with a newer version of mariaDB (corrupted table) and now finally able to reinstall mariaDB (10.1.37), I am wanting to clear out everything from the database and recreate using backup data. There are mentions of all this but nothing comprehensive enough for me to act on: and I do...

What version of mariaDB to use (Debian [sid])?

What's the recommended version of mariaDB to run with ZM 1.32.3 on Debian sid? A fairly recent ZM 1.32.3 had me running mariaDB 10.3.11 on Debian sid and after a while I ended up with a database corruption ( https://forums.zoneminder.com/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=27934 ).

I've flushed everything and am still unable to install mariaDB!

What is the newest viable release of mariaDB that is supposed to work with ZM 1.32?

Recently encountered a corrupted database (thread is here: https://forums.zoneminder.com/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=27934 ). I reflexively sought to install any updates in case I might have run across a bug. That now appears to have been a huge mistake as I now have a messed up/incomplete install of maria...

InnoDB: Corruption of an index tree: table `zm`.`Logs` index `GEN_CLUST_INDEX'

I had been streaming a camera for a while and then my database connection dropped out. ZM was still running. Can't recall if mysql was still running (I suspect not). Went to restart ZM thinking that that might wake it up, but it then failed to start. Traced it down to a problem with the database ser...

Re: Segfault with zmeventnotification

OK... I found the culprit! I had had a leftover IP in my Debian server's /etc/hosts file: leftover from battling some networking issues. Something was using the value from here while most everything else was using the correct IP (as, I believe, provided by resolver). zmeventnotification is working w...
