Re: Camera not working

By offline do you mean the pc is not connected to a network? If so with a USB local camera it should not matter. I set up my test PC with Debian 9, loaded up Zoneminder 1.30.4 per the instructions in the WIKI and connected a Logitech USB V-UBK45 camera. Running Local, Pal B, 32 BIT colour, 640x480 w...

Re: What is the likely cause of pixellation?

Thanks bbunge and jwarfin. It's a rainy day here today so it's a good time to rebuild the PC with Bionic Beaver and 1.32.3 I'll report back. If you are interested I've updated my install script to install Apache2, Mariadb, PHP and Zoneminder 1.32.x See: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Ubuntu_Server_18....

Re: What is the likely cause of pixellation?

Couple of things to try: lower the resolution lower the frame rate (do this at the camera) with ffmpeg use TCP Your cameras likely support several formats. Try several at the lower frame rate and resolution. Get it working at lower rates then increase the settings. With an i5 and 15 GB RAM you shoul...

Re: Unable to read videos from web console

From what I've learned about Zoneminder on a Pi, you can not record videos directly. You can do jpeg's which should be able to be exported as a video file the same as any other Zoneminder install. I am currently running ZM 1.32.3 on a 64 bit Ubuntu Pi. Will try to take some time to see if the video ...

Re: Disk Array for Laptop USB3

Using a laptop hard drive for an always on system is not a great idea. One way to go would be to use a ssd for the OS and an external, powered USB (desktop) drive for storage. Better yet look for a used desktop and a good WD hard drive. There are places that get PC's to recycle and a lot of those us...

Re: Offline mode

Sure, just unplug the ethernet or turn off the WIFI. If you want to view the console use http://localhost/zm or http://127.0.0.1/zm

Re: Unable to read videos from web console

Just loaded my Pi with Bionic and Zm 1.32.3. Can confirm that it does jpeg's just fine.

Re: Simple question on network Share Wiki guide

What file system is on your NFS? If it is not EXT something I can understand the error. It is almost impossible to cover all the scenarios folks will use. I've tested those instructions several ways within my hardware limitations. Have also been able to store events to a NTFS format USB drive on my ...

That is because 18.10 only supports 1.30.4 as of now.

Re: How to downgrade when desired version not in repo

Zoneminder uses its own user and password. Yes, it can be changed but does not pose a security risk for most users. Dumping the database does not mean the entire Mariadb. https://www.liquidweb.com/kb/delete-a-m ... mand-line/

Re: Why does this file display when I enter /localhost/zm

Likely you did not set up LAMP correctly. Which Ubuntu 18 are you using? What install instructions did you use?

Re: How to downgrade when desired version not in repo

Did you drop the prior zm database? You may be farther ahead to start over with a fresh Linux install.
