Re: CPU / GPU requirements

Re: Console incorrectly flips width/height when in Modect mode

The width and height you enter should be what the camera is sending... not what you want it displayed as.

Re: CPU / GPU requirements

The problem with 4k cameras is that everytime you double the resolution, you are actually multiplying by 4. So 4k res takes a lot more ram. default buffers is 50, so 16 cameras * 50 * 3840 x 2160 *4bytes per pixel = 26Gb of ram. Which needs to be < half of ram. So you will be wanting around 64Gb of ...

Re: Camera Passthrough gives bad video

The code tries to calculate how much time it should sleep to achieve the framerate. But it doesn't know how long ffmpeg will take to do the decoding. You would think that a sufficiently high fps would result in no sleeping but it does. I could probably improve the sleep code, but it is more correct ...

Re: Zoneminder in Debian 10

If you want zoneminder with x264 encode you will have to get it from zmrepo. I have just now made available there there requisite mp4v2 libraries and new master snapshot built using it. These are for amd64... still working on raspbian.

Re: I setup ZM a while ago and want to hire someone to remotely help me fine-tune it

I'll be here when you are ready

I should mention... I have been planning... for like 6 months now... to start a youtube channel where I go through a lot of this stuff. So stay tuned. I might get to it soon. (I bought a green screen, so I'm inching towards it)

Re: Error Zoneminder 1.33.x and FFMPEG 3.4.6 Ubuntu Bioniq

These logs don't show a failure to connect, they show an unassigned destination image format. Normally we choose this in the monitor... 24bit, 32bit, 8bit whatever. Very wierd.

Re: Performance hit going from 1.29 to 1.32?

Some people reported a performance hit but MOST saw a big improvement.

You can still store to jpegs OR you can store to a .mp4, or both.

Re: Camera Passthrough gives bad video

first step, clear your max fps fields they will just starve ffmpeg for cpu.

second if that doesn't help is upgrade to latest master and see if i havn't already fixed the problem.

Re: No analysis, no trigger events?

The defaults I find don't work well with modern cameras. I start with best high sensitivity and then change the minimums to 1% or less. Keep reducing until I get too many events.
