Re: Cheap eBay POE IP Camera setup issues

Today I tried a spare system, and did a clean install of Ubuntu Server 16.04.2 LTS + Zoneminder 1.30.2, and the camera is now working, but keeps on dropping the connection.

So there is clearly something wrong with my current setup.

Re: Cheap eBay POE IP Camera setup issues

I am still having issues with getting this camera working with zoneminder. I have tried viewing the stream with VLC on my windows computer, and both the main and sub stream works just fine. Within the command line of the zoneminder computer I ran ffmpeg -i rtsp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:554/live0.264 output...

Re: Cheap eBay POE IP Camera setup issues

bbunge: Thanks for your reply.

I am sure that VLC reports the same details as above, but I will check that when I am next on site over the weekend, is there anything else that I can try in the meantime via the zoneminder ui?

Cheap eBay POE IP Camera setup issues

Hi All. Earlier this week I was browsing around eBay and came across some what I would class a very cheap POE IP CCTV Cameras. When I say cheap I am talking less than £30 delivered. So for that kind of price I thought I might as well have a try for that kind of price, and I was not really expecting ...

Re: issues after updating from 1.28.1: Permission denied

Thank you for your reply. As said above each time the current zoneminder makes a new folder it gives the folder drw-r--r-- (644) permissions. Running chmod -R 755 /var/cache/zoneminder as you said will only repair the permissions for all folders and files that have already been made. As soon as zone...

Re: Timestamp font adjustments

A year has now past since this topic was started, and I am just wondering if anyone has been able to find a way to adjust the Timestamp size.

I am slowly but surely moving over to IP Camera's, I am recording at 1980x1020, this makes the Timestamp unreadable.

Thanks for your time.

Best Regards.
