VLC & FI9805E doesnt running

Post by keule » Thu Jul 10, 2014 9:13 pm

Hi,

with the videoplayer(vlc), i can get all the stream from the cam.

rtsp://user:pass@192.168.1.110:88/videoMain


But with zoneminder and libVLC it will not working. No Picture, no stream, errors in log and RED Sources Entry in the Web-GUI.

With ffmpeg it will running fantasic, but with extremly smearing effects.

libvlc is compiled and is clickable in the menu.


i used options:

Remote Method: "RTP/Unicast"
Options: "--rtsp-tcp,--verbose=2,--network-caching=5000"
Taget Colorspace: "24 bit color"
Capture Width: "1280"
Capture Height: "720"


I use the last zm-code from GIT and have testet this with both lbvlc sources(debian & original). the same failure.


have anyone the same failure and can help me ????


THX, robert

Wired or wifi cam? Have you tried disabling authentication on the camera to see if that solves the issue? Did you try 'RTP/RTSP" in the 'remote method' pulldown for the 'source' with vlc selected?

this is a wired cam(poe, foscam FI9805E).

i've the same problem with RTP/RTSP, and disabling the authentication on the cam is unpossible with the foscam-firmware.

Your post showing the settings you tried looks about right, did you try the same settings but without specifying port 88?

I looked for some info on that cam and ran across this, it has some useful information:

Sure, i've tested this.

The RTSP-stream comes over port 88 and with the clvlc/vlc player it's works with the same URL, without problem.

where is the different between libvlc-URL and the standard vlc.player-URL ?

i can't understand this.

In general the same RTSP URL should work with the VLC player or with software using libvlc however its possible that your vlc libs are not correct or might have some components missing. What Linux distro and version are you using? Did you build ZM from source or install via package? What version of ZM is it? Have you enabled verbose logging to see what error ZM gets when trying to access the camera?

Hmm, build looks good at a glance. Have you verified that no iptables rules are in service that might be blocking communication between ZM and the camera?

My best guess is the version of the vlc libs you have is not a good fit with ZM, I have been using the packages from the videolan 'nightly master' PPA with good results. On thing...is 1280x720 the correct resolution for that cam? I looked at the specs and it shows 1280x960.

the new resolution doesn't help.

currently, i've self compiled vlc(last git pull request), and now, nothing(ffmpeg) will work. red source entry and this log entry.

ERR [socket_sendto( /tmp/zm/zms-203559s.sock ) failed: No such file or directory] at /usr/share/zoneminder/includes/functions.php line 2330


can anyone give me correct vlc compiling options ?

Here are some random suggestions:
Make sure you've got the x264 library and header files installed. These need to be installed before you configure and build zoneminder. Normally, I'd expect this library to be grabbed when building/installing ffmpeg, but I'm not familiar with a debian build environment.

Your latest error message is missing a space in the output. It should read:
zm_libvlc_camera Home directory not accessible: Permission denied
Googling this error reveals a lot of hits and they seem to have one thing in common: audio. If your camera has a built in mic, make sure and turn it off so it is not trying to inject audio into the stream.

These are just guesses.
Visit my blog for ZoneMinder related projects using the Raspberry Pi, Orange Pi, Odroid, and the ESP8266

Yea, audio can cause funky errors. I use this option with ffmpeg for cams with audio I cant disable "allowed_media_types=video".
