For my Foscam FI9821W that I had running in a virtual machine, I used libvlc but had problems simillar to what you describe. The problem ended after lowering the Bit rate to 512k in the camera settings. I kept the 720P resolution but lowered the Frame rate to 10. Maybe worth a try.

Aug 20 22:20:07 stik zms[668]: WAR [Shared data not initialised by capture daemon, some query functions may not be available or produce invalid results]
I also get this error. I can see a crash in the log and I don't get any recorded alarm.

Aug 20 22:20:15 stik zms[668]: INF [Got signal 15 (Terminated), exiting]

Anyone knows what this is about?

Yesterday I installed the latest version (1.27.99+1) and seems that is working fine, except for a RTSP camera, that is hanging after 10 seconds watching live video with an already reported.
Can you that not fix with ''?tcp'' add to your stream url. I have no problems with hanging.
For me the ?tcp trick no longer work, instead I need to add the rtsp_transport=tcp as the option field instead.
rtsp_transport=tcp

After that, thing seems works very reliable to me (even better than before 1.26.5) In 1.26.5, I occasionally get red screen and I need to restart the stream by (save the config once again)

Did you put that at the end like of the path like ?tcp
I tried to add that option to the end of my path but then the camera will not connect.

Works
rtsp://user:pswd@xxx.xxx.x.x:443/videoMain?tcp

No connect
rtsp://user:pswd@xxx.xxx.x.x:443/videoMain?rtsp_transport=tcp

There is a Options field in the new 1.27 Source setup.

Thanks, mythedoff, worked a treat. Any tips for control?

UPDATE: If my memory serves correctly, I already added the ptz control script for this camera to zoneminder. No need to add it manually.

Hi, i have installed ubuntu + zoneminder like specified a few posts back under vmware

I have a Foscam FI9818W and in vlc i can see the stream at rtsp://user:pass@ip:88/videoMain

if i set it up as ffmpeg it works ok at full resolution 1280x720 but i cannot set it as libvlc i get the following warning / error from zms :

WAR Shared data not initialised by capture daemon, some query functions may not be available or produce invalid results
ERR Terminating, last frame sent time 1410510419.222144 secs more than maximum of 10.000000

Does anyone have any ideea how to solve this ?
