Yep, I'm also going to play with the resolution to see if that will make a difference. It's a shame to have a 1MP camera if I can only use 640x480 @10FPS (for example) though.

Re: ffmpeg streams and image corruption

I think I found the solution. If you're using an ffmpeg stream you have to leave the FPS boxes empty in the camera General tab. I changed that last night on all of my Ubiquti cameras and haven't had a single glitched frame yet. Unfortunately I can't say the same thing for my TrendNET TV-I262PI, now ...

I have a handful of Upiquiti Aircams that I am trying to get working reliably with ZoneMinder. They do work if I use ffmpeg, but I would like to have them use the rtsp stream to offload some of the processor load from the server as well as fix some glitching images I'm getting.

Alarms on cloudy days

I am getting quite a few alarms on days with mixed clouds and sun as the sun drops behind a cloud and then comes back out. I have tried quite a bit of tuning for the zones, but haven't come up with a magic set of settings that will catch people in the frames but eliminate most (if not all) of the ev...
