Guys, please try to keep to the original topic.
If you want to discuss DVR cards, please create a new thread instead, unless you have something (like drivers) that should be included in my installation script :)

Nate23: you will only see a decrease in CPU usage when ZM is saving the video streams as JPEG sequences to the hard drive OR when your cameras are feeding ZoneMinder via M-JPEG streams.
You will not see a decrease in CPU usage when you're feeding/streaming MPEG video streams!

This library would be pretty useless once: 1) your video cameras feeds ZoneMinder with MPEG videos, and not M-JPEG 2) ZMA stores the events as x264 video files, and not JPEG sequences 3) ZMS streams in MPEG format I really can't wait for warmcat's x264 contribution to be accepted and included in the...

Drema: You have to specify the vcodec as libx264 and you have to specify the codec presets. You can try something like: -vcodec libx264 -vpre hq -vpre main -sameq There are a couple of presets and bitrate settings that you might want to experiment with. The -sameq could be replaced with -b <bitrate...

The restore points of the VM was a real lifesaver. I'm quite impressed that you can actually install ZM + FFmpeg + libav* from the package manager and that it would work out of the box, but I would also prefer installing it from source code. The primary reason for that is due to the bugs being fixed...

OK. I agree with you that native x264 support in ZMS would be awesome. Perhaps with the help of warmcat we might be able to do that. Off topic: do you also have trouble with the Apple Store, where the applications would take forever to be authorized/accepted? Here's a timeline of how I came about ch...

OK, great. I'm glad my ZoneMinder project that I did for my final year project at the University had some use :) I take it that you've solved all your issues, seeing as you gave good feedback in my Ubuntu 10.10 install script thread: http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=65723#65723 I wou...

jdhar, Thanks for the feedback.

I've had so many issues with conflicts between FFMPEG that I installed from the package manager and FFMPEG that I've built from source.
Most of the time I ended up reinstalling Ubuntu. Eventually I ran my test systems in VirtualBox just so that I can recover faster :(

Have a look at my installation script / instructions that I wrote for ZM on Ubuntu 10.10: http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=16628 It seems to me like you've tried to compile ZM from source without compiling and installing FFmpeg from source too. It could also be that you forgot to add...

Well, you can try specifying '-f mjpeg' just before the input. eg. nph-zms | ffmpeg -f mjpeg -i - -f asf -sameq -o video.asf * I can't verify this at this moment, since I'm at work. I'm not sure if you can redirect nph-zms' output to STDOUT though, which is why I've modified zms.cpp to take command-...

Ratax22: you have to recompile it from source.

The links that I've given in my previous 2 posts are working.
Alternatively you could download the old versions here: http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.php/Xlib_shm

That installation guide is very old! I would suggest that you try my installation script (even though I wrote & tested it on Ubuntu 10.10): http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=65285#65285 Alternatively follow this newer guide intended for Ubuntu 10.04: http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/ind...

c3p9, try: sudo service zm stop
If you've used the package manager to install ZoneMinder, then you might have to use 'zoneminder' instead of 'zm'. eg. sudo service zoneminder stop

Could you perhaps tell us what setup guide you used? As well as the specific Ubuntu version you're running.
