Zoneminder Video not smooth

Post by bakenoor » Wed Oct 29, 2014 4:07 pm

I'm using mjpg streamer and I'm able to stream via a Webcam on localhost using the command

Code: Select all

./mjpg_streamer -i "./input_uvc.so -f 30  -d /dev/video1 -y" -o "./output_http.so -p 8080"
. As it can be seen, I've set the fps to be 30. On zoneminder, I've added a monitor and set the Maximum FPS to be 30 as well. However, the video display seems to lag on zoneminder while on localhost through mjpg-streamer it is smooth. How to make the video on zoneminder smooth as well ?

Remove (blank out) the Maximum FPS on the monitor. Treat it like the IP-CAMERA you've now converted it into by making it a HTTP stream.

IP Cameras do NOT use the max FPS field. If you were accessing /dev/video directly, you'd need it.

I've removed the Max FPS, yet it is still lagging compared to the output from mjpg streamer, so if I understand Max FPS is not the reason for this lag
