Re: CentOS 8 cannot install zoneminder

UPDATE: This took a coordinated effort with multiple fedora packagers, including myself, to get the entire Zoneminder dependency tree into EPEL8, so that Zoneminder can be built. Zoneminder will now build on EL8. To do so locally, start with the EL7 source rpm hosted on rpmfusion, then mock build it...

Re: docker container lost access to NFS share, deleted events

If you move your NFS mount into a system mount file and create a systemd service file to manage your zoneminder container, you can then automatically prevent zoneminder from starting, in the event your remote storage fails to mount.

Re: Why might analysis images not be available?

Your original post sates that doing it the way you described would be useful to you. I am not agreeing nor disagreeing with that. I am merely supplying the technical details to accomplish what you set out to do. It's up to you to decide if this is worth it or not. If you are asking this question bec...

Re: virtualhost configuration and API access

Just had this conversation here:
viewtopic.php?f=38&t=28409&p=111243#p111216

The short answer is that the package you installed does not have an up to date zm Apache config.

Re: How to disable PTZ motion detection durning camera movement

@Alec This thread asks the same question that the very first users of PTZ cameras had when combined with motion recording.... since basic motion detection is all about counting RGB color changes in pixels over time, a false trigger is created any time a move command is sent to a ptz camera. This is ...

Re: Why might analysis images not be available?

You can export the event as an mp4 then play it back with ffserver. Zoneminder would see it as a continuously looping rtsp camera. This is how the "cameras" at demo.zoneminder.com are set up. See this for details:

Re: How to disable PTZ motion detection durning camera movement

To avoid recording motion events when the ptz camera moves, set an appropriate value for the (up to three) max area fields in the camera's motion settings. You may also need/want to set a small value in the Frame Ignore Count fields too. To determine that value, look at the motion statistics for a f...

Re: ZoneMinder + Raspberry Pi 4?

Maybe things have changed with multimedia-deb repo, but the zoneminder package from this repo was known to be broken.
Multimedia-deb is not an official Debian repo so I'm not sure how to report bugs against their packages.

Re: ZoneMinder + Raspberry Pi 4?

My install came from the stock Raspian Buster repository. Forgive my ignorance, but if I'm placing the stuff from that conf in my conf-enabled/zoneminder.conf I have to replace all of the @variable@ with the actual path, yes? That's good to hear ZoneMinder has made it back into the Debian repositor...

Re: ZoneMinder + Raspberry Pi 4?

I have Zoneminder running on my Pi 4 with 4gb ram. Storage is on a NAS vs the SD or USB but that shouldn't be a problem. There are some tricks to getting the API to work (.htaccess files seem to not be generated/installed) and I can't get event notification working right but I have 5 Amcrest cams b...

Re: H264 Pass through VS X264 Server Load

The short answer is yes, you should be using passthrough. As the name implies it passes the stream through, straight to storage, w/o modification, because modifying it in any way requires the stream to be decompressed, and decompressing h264/265 streams is expensive. I have nearly the same setup as ...
