ZM 1.32.3 ARM board Ubuntu 16.04 - Can't play recorded events

Post by landrower » Wed Mar 06, 2019 6:20 pm

Hello!

I have an ARM Board(Banana PI M3), whit Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial.

I have mjpeg and RTSP cameras, and with ZM 1.29.0 and 1.30.04 this issue not happen.

With 1.32.3 I can see live cameras individually, I can see on montage grups like a charm, but I can't play the recorded events.
I can see the frames and stills, and jpgs are really on the disk.
With ZmNinja I can play the recorded events like a charm.

When I see on the logs I get:
Mar 6 14:49:39 localhost web_php[19064]: ERR [Timed out waiting for msg /var/run/zm/zms-155972s.sock]
Mar 6 14:49:39 localhost web_php[19064]: ERR [No data to read from socket]
Mar 6 14:49:39 localhost web_php[19064]: ERR [getCmdResponse stream error: No data to read from socket - checkStreamForErrors()]

The more strange is that I can play recorded events on "Montage Review", with 1 and 8 hours.
If I click on a monitor during the review it's open a new window and I can view the recorded video, although it play backwards.

When I can play it from montage review, the windows have the url:
192.168.70.6/zm/index.php?view=event&eid=5983&fid=4600&popup=1

When I can't play it from normal event list, the window have the url:
http://192.168.70.6/zm/index.php?view=e ... c=0&page=1

Maybe it is an malformed URL?
I got this zoneminder 1.32.3 for xenial with apt-get from "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/iconnor/zoneminder-1.32/ubuntu xenial main"

Sorry for my bad english, and please, help-me with this.
I really tried many times before ask for help.
Thanks!

hi,

playing with /etc/zm/zm.conf I was able to view recorded jpeg!

I edited

ZM_PATH_CGI= /zm/cgi-bin/nph-zms and then returned back to M_PATH_CGI=/usr/lib/zoneminder/cgi-bin

and it started to work. Really strange!

Since starting from a fresh install i did many changes, I retried starting again from a fresh install and I was no more succesful. :(

So, I think it's a configuration issue on our distro not fully tested by developers.

Hope someone will help us to fix.
thanks

Save the images as jpeg. Video recording does not work on arm.

we are saving as jpeg.

even if the jpegs are really saved (we could see them in the folder) ZM is not able to reproduce a video (as per the previous versions, i.e. 1.30.4) for recorded jpegs. even if other tool able to reproduce video from recorded jpegs.

it is happening to many users for a fresh install starting from a fresh distro. launching the script you proposed or following exactly instructions on the zoneminder site. and coinfiguring properly the camera. but it doesn't work.

for sure it's a not perfect configuration done by ZM installation on some distro. but we are not able to fix.
