Viewing ZoneMinder on a SmartTV

Post by AllenTuttle » Mon Feb 27, 2012 6:55 pm

I've tried viewing ZoneMinder on TV's that have built in browsers (a Samsung and an LG, and a Sony TV streaming appliance).
The live and replay views fail, no matter what I set the default video stream to.
Viewing stills does work.
However, if I take an event and use the 'Generate Video' option, depending on the output format I can view it.
I get the best results outputting to 'swf'. Quality of playback is good and it is the only format that auto repeats on the TV's.
Has anyone been able to get the Live view to work on a SmartTV?
Has anyone been able to get Zoneminder to stream in anything other than jpeg?
No matter what I set my default stream to it always ends up streaming jpeg when I look at the HTML code.

I take it you have one of the new Samsung D series TV's, I have the Samsung C8000.

On the C series in the app manager there is a program called "Mobiscope", it does not yet support Zoneminder, but I have put in a support ticket asking for them to support zoneminder.

Sorry no experience with SmartTV but I've done/do this via a web browser through in a htpc on both sd and hd tv's. No matter what is happening on the htpc, I can click a button on the remote and instantly view the cam that I have set up to view. It has a very big wow factor when people see it happen the first time.
