Re: how to set the control of a camera

I finally got mine set up again but it was touchy. I used a script that used to work and I had to "fix" it (Vstarcam_C24S) so I queried here. I was able to use debugging as suggested to get me going but had to learn a bit of perl scripting language to finally get it working again. Hopefully for your...

Re: Help with PTZ on Vstarcam_C24S.pm needs updating for 1.34.23

lol .. yeah I actually set up another folder in /usr/share/zoneminder/. I have the original www and I made a separate one called wwwpi. I have two Apache sites. One for the stock version and one for my raspberry pi setup that has a few modified php files. I have a pi setup as a monitor with a pi 7" ...

Re: Help with PTZ on Vstarcam_C24S.pm needs updating for 1.34.23

thanks again for taking the time ... that information helps. At least now I understand a bit more of what is going on. I've played with php and had to learn a bit of that. As you see by my post, I did play a bit with perl to modify the zoneminder montage.php with a couple of buttons that were direct...

Re: Help with PTZ on Vstarcam_C24S.pm needs updating for 1.34.23

Sorry to say ... I guess I'm confused since you haven't really said anything that I didn't already say. The code you posted is the exact code in the pm file and it doesn't show any errors or anything at all, so I don't know what the debug statements mean or do. You said to change the error to a debu...

Help with PTZ on Vstarcam_C24S.pm needs updating for 1.34.23

I used to use the PTZ on my ip cameras when I was using zoneminder 1.30.4 with the file I included (with a txt extension instead if the .pm so it would allow me to attach it here). I had issues with a bunch of things I wont go into but I am using Xubuntu 18.04 and Zoneminder 1.34.23 and Vstarcam_C24...

Re: Zone issues?

I believe what you are looking for is under "Frames" .. You can find the analysis images with the triggered area outlined there. Frames can be found in the Events list or at the top when viewing an event. Just scroll down the list of images until you see the "alarm" marked ones. As for getting the s...

I want the links to set the camera to one of two preset locations (I may be adding another camera that will also have a security and open ...

(Niche improvement) Have quick access to set PTZ locations for groups of cameras

Ok .. dont know how to really describe this so I will just try my best... Here is a situation: I have 5 cameras, 3 of which I would like to have 2 distinct views for. I would like to have this ability as a quick clickable link or button on the "Console" window so if I click on say... "zone one" or "...

(improvement) Cycle Mode could use scaling

I have a Raspberry Pi with a 7" display and noticed that the cycle feature shows cameras at full size. My cameras are at 1280x720 so the cycle images are too big for the Pi's screen and at this point in time there is no option for scaling available I know simple html and tried to play a bit with the...

Re: Three little pigs... or problems :)

I found that there is a usb bandwidth problem in Linux or so they say. Its possible that you are running into the same issue with your addon card but this is just a guess. I know when it comes to USB cameras you can't run two of the exact same cameras :( One will work but when you try to connect the...

Having problems Generating Video

Hi I'm running v1.24.4 on Ubuntu 10.10 and everything seems to work fine except that I can't generate a video. When I try I receive a Video Generation Failed! error. When I check my ffmpeg.log it says the following: FFmpeg version 0.6-4:0.6-2ubuntu6.2, Copyright (c) 2000-2010 the FFmpeg developers b...
