Re: how to really disable a monitor

Have you tried changing the function to "none"?

the video stuff is in 1.31.1.
Ah HA! That would certainly explain why I can't find it in 1.30.4. :D I'll give it a try. (Why not? It's a test zm install anyway!)

Re: any plans for video storage in, say, the next year?

It has been merged to master. ubuntu packages have been available from my branch for ages. Try it out. Well, I went and set up a brand-new instance of zoneminder in a vm (ubuntu 16.04LTS), and pulled in your package of v.1.30.4. Unless I'm missing it, I'm seeing absolutely nothing different from 1....

Re: any plans for video storage in, say, the next year?

Ah, cool. Guess that's a reason to upgrade off of 1.28.5. Kept sporadically reading the release notes but didn't see any mention of it so figured it never happened. I'll give it a whirl, thanks.

any plans for video storage in, say, the next year?

Very happy to have zoneminder, but at this point I'm really feeling the pain of zoneminder's split-everything-into-jpegs architecture. Despite throwing a decent amount of hardware at it (raid1 SSDs, 32GB ram, pretty beefy CPU), just due to running a decent number of high def cameras at a reasonable ...

API call for overlaying text information

I'd like to request two features be added to the API: API call to change the timestamp string for a monitor. API call to overlay textual information under the monitor name, for X seconds. Why / usage... I have a home automation system, and as part of that home automation system I have locks, where e...

Re: 1.30 upgrade features

That's... unfortunate. That's literally the only reason I have to upgrade off of 1.28.1. (If it ain't broke, don't screw with it!)

Re: Help! Disaster! Can't reinstall 1.27.x after accidental removal

Why is it every time I write a message I figure out the answer on my own five minutes later? Oh well, in case anyone else has this happen to them, apparently the PPA was renamed. So, head over to /etc/apt/sources.list.d, and cp iconnor-zoneminder-precise.list iconnor-zoneminder-precise.list.save vi ...

Help! Disaster! Can't reinstall 1.27.x after accidental removal

Shoulda left well enough alone, but... decided to untwist the whole "ffmpeg is dead, use libAV" coup cluster**** debacle that shipped with ubuntu 12.04LTS. I ran the install script located here: https://gist.github.com/xdamman/e4f713c8cd1a389a5917 Unfortunately that script has all the safeties off, ...

Re: Smearing

This is actually a known bug with ffmpeg, and at least a medium part of why vlc was introduced into 1.27. Suggest trying libvlc as your source type instead of ffmpeg.

Re: Re-Adding moved events

Not aware of any way to re-add them to the database. If you only need to re-add them so that zm can make video files out of them, another way is to load them into adobe premiere. It allows importing a sequence of numbered stills as though it was a single continuous video clip. (Probably other stuff ...
