Re: localhost versus IP address

Maybe localhost is http only (and the others https)? Did you check another browser? Any antivirus software interfering maybe? Did you check in 'Taskmanager' what exactly causes CPU spikes?

Re: How to limit bandwidth usage?

I noticed this as well. It might be technical limitations though because values react on large values indeed.
Maybe try to set in Camera Options on 'Misc' tab the window 'Scale' value to 1/4 (or similar).

Re: Flush missing jpg events?

Thanks, i knew there's something like that but didn't know the name. Always thought it would be done automatically after some time.

Re: 1.34.22 (and .20 and .21) MODECT woes

Maybe check the zones first for sanity. Or delete/recreate them.

Re: 1.34.22 (and .20 and .21) MODECT woes

I already told you to check for the missing min analysis fps value. Its unusual that default values are missing but possible if its a long standing config. I experienced some values out of bounds as well over time. If you're not familiar with setting up the database manually you probably have to re-...

Flush missing jpg events?

Hi, i just tested the jpg save option (frames+analysis) without video writer. All looked well and i deleted the event. Now the log is flooded with the error below. Looks like it doesn't auto-prune the error (its been some hours already). Any way to delete that entry? 2020-10-27 02:28:06 zms_e78450 6...

Re: 1.34.22 (and .20 and .21) MODECT woes

I will test the 'h264 encode' mode on my system. I cannot test 'h264 encode' (i haven't compiled it in) but exclusive JPG saving does work here as well. Just noticed that your 'Analysis FPS' field is empty. Maybe this is related. Otherwise, as stated before, i'd go for a factory/database reset. You...

Re: 1.34.22 (and .20 and .21) MODECT woes

So, to sum it up: - H264 passthrough is ok. - H264 Encode is not. - Red areas have black video but the ZM timestamps work properly. - Affected versions are (at least) 20, 21, 22. I will test the 'h264 encode' mode on my system. The 'h264 encode' mode is usually just needed for h265 cameras. You pay ...

The red areas are ok?

What are your settings in 'general' tab?

Re: 1.34.22 (and .20 and .21) MODECT woes

What have you set in 'General' tab? Did you check the logs?
Maybe backup your config/database and restart ZM from scratch for testing. My 1.34.22 doesn't behave like this. I cannot give you specific help but that's what i would try.

Re: 1.34.22 (and .20 and .21) MODECT woes

Save JPEGs Frames + Analysis images (if available) This is usually only used when tweaking zones or debugging. For regular usage this should be rather off. Video Writer X264 Encode Try 'H264 camera passthrough' if possible. I rather suspect bad stream encoding. If x264 uses h/w acceleration (gpu) t...

You probably don't mean separate jpg alarm frames on passthrough mode then i guess.

What are your 'source' and 'storage' settings?

Alarm frames have to be enabled explicitly on ffmpeg/passthrough.

Re: excessive ammounts of mysql activity caused by zoneminder?

I run database and captured videos in tmpfs. Most events are dropped anyway due to filters (too few motion/score) so they don't produce useless write cycles (later). Once the tmpfs contingent is full videos will be archived to flash drive. I manually backup the db if i change something. Zoneminder g...

Re: How to adjust zones on mobile?

I managed a touch and drag on my android phone... had to zoom in a lot just to get it big enough to select with my finger. But its impossible to keep the point under reasonable control. Dragging results in moving the canvas to the opposite direction. You cannot lock the canvas when zoomed in. A ful...
