No Still Frames

Post by johndul0001 » Mon Jul 25, 2016 4:36 pm

Ubuntu 16.06 64 apache2 php7 fresh install.
Zoneminder upgrade from 1.28 to 1.30 using ppa:iconnor/zoneminder-storageareas

PHP Notice: Undefined variable: event in /usr/share/zoneminder/www/includes/Event.php on line 218
PHP Notice: Undefined variable: event in /usr/share/zoneminder/www/includes/Event.php on line 225

Any Ideas?

Oh, by the way, I did donate.

It looks like some paths are off. it was looking for skins in /skins not /zm/skins so I added a link "skins" to /usr/share/zoneminder/skins at /
it is looking for events in /zm/events/events but it should be just /zm/events. I don't know where to change this

Re: No Still Frames, rebuild from source, missing ffmpeg libraries

Post by johndul0001 » Tue Jul 26, 2016 8:01 pm

I think iconnor's build is broken. I am now trying to install from source and everything seems to be working except rtsp support.

You must have ffmpeg libraries installed to use remote camera protocol 'rtsp' for monitor 1

I have ffmpeg installed. What am I missing? There were no errors for missing ffmpeg binaries when I complied.

Storageareas is an experimental branch, use the standard 1.29 provided with ubuntu 16.04, or the master ppa. Or talk to Icon on irc if you are looking to help with storageareas development.
Production Zoneminder 1.35.x
Random Selection of Cameras (Dahua and Hikvision)
More Dev VM's than I care to count.

I think I am bumping into the same issue on the regular zoneminder (not the storageareas build), I can see the events ZM is detecting, but I can't see the individual frames when I click on each of them - I get the pop-up with an empty box for the image.

I tried setting DIR_EVENTS on the GUI to /var/cache/zoneminder/events/ with no luck.

Was there a workaround found for this?

thank you

Did you follow the instructions for Ubuntu in the WIKI?

Everything you needed is in your link #2. I suspect I had missed something in the LAMP manual install in the original #1 so it has been deleted as the upgrade procedure to Mariadb in #2 works very well.

So everything is working fine, my only issue is I can't open an individual frame when replaying an event. I can replay an event "normally" but can't see a particular individual frame. Not sure how to troubleshoot this exact issue?

Could be an issue with your browser (popup blocker?) I use Firefox 64 bit and I can see the frames just fine. Chrome 64 bit and Edge also work.
