Re: Zoneminder on a "stick"

Great project, I don't need ZM on a stick atm but I've decided to download the torrent and let it seed to help the project get off the ground.

Hi,

I've just built a new Ubuntu 14.04 ZM 1.28.2 box and noticed in the easy instructions regards changing the innodb_buffer_pool_size.

Does anybody have any step by step instructions on how to do this? I am still new to Ubuntu so it would be helpful if somebody could advise.

Does not Stream Playback Events

Hi,

I've just built a new ZM box on Ubuntu 14.04 with 1.28.2 however when playing back events it only appears to stream the first 2 frames then just pauses, however live streaming works OK and if I view the stills there appear all to be there? I setup following the easy instructions.

Libvlc Dropping Framerate

If I swap over to FFMPEG I then get smears but it always streams at 15FPS so I much prefare VIBVLC. Any explanations what could be causing the low fra...

Re: New ZoneMinder Mobile App

This is fantastic news, Most CCTV software boasts about been able to view on tablets/phones. This is handy for when your away from home. Eyezm was good whilst it lasted but its now hard to get it working without hacking about.

Re: Best way to migrate from master PPA to 1.28?

So far so good, However when I have my cameras set on libvlc there now stream at a shocking framerate of 1.4fps where before would stream at 15fps, sometimes the camera does jump up to 15fps but then slows back down to 1.4fps. When I switch to ffmpeg it works fine, however I suffer from smudges in t...
