Re: view/export/create videos and/or events later on

Thanks for the tips. But this raises another question. How do I tell the execute button in the filter box to make mp4 files? It doesn't ask me what kind of files to make. When I make movies i the export box, it asks me what kind of video to make, but it doesn't have mp4 as a choice.

Re: view/export/create videos and/or events later on

-bash: cd: /var/cache/zoneminder/events/: No such file or directory I'm in Fedora, the events are in /var/www/html/zm/events It seems like the filter page should provide links to the video, like the event page does when you click on video. Is there no way to list the videos that were made from the f...

Re: view/export/create videos and/or events later on

When you click on "execute" on the filter page, does it look like it does anythng? Do you see any changes at all?
I don't have any directory at /var/cache/zoneminder/images/

Re: view/export/create videos and/or events later on

When you make video of more than one event, you get one video pr event. This is only true if you create videos in the export window. At the top of the events window is a link to open the filters window. If you add a filter your events window will be limited to the matching events. If you export vid...

Re: view/export/create videos and/or events later on

What you describe happens when I generate a video from a single event window. But when I click on the "execute" link in the filter window, it just looks like nothing happens at all. Are you talking about the filter window? The video wouldn't be in the event image folder because I'm making one video ...

Re: view/export/create videos and/or events later on

If I open the filter window, check "make movie for all events" and then execute, it seems like there is a movie being made because my hard drive starts spinning. But there is no indication on the filter page or anywhere else that the movie is being made. Where is the movie?

Re: view/export/create videos and/or events later on

Thanks, that seems to work. I'm wondering why they warn you not to make too many events. Each event creates another folder, and a row in the events table, but its the same number of images as when there are fewer events. I don't see how just folders or rows in a database can take up that much more s...

Re: view/export/create videos and/or events later on

From what you've told me, it sounds like each folder in the events folder contains the jpegs for that event. Making a movie across folders sounds interesting. When the functionis set to record, it makes an event every 10 minutes. Is there any way I can change the length of each event, to say 30 seco...

Re: view/export/create videos and/or events later on

You are correct. When I have the function set to record, it does make events, but they are not the events I want. I'll give you a scenario that is similar to what I am trying to do. Suppose I set zoneminder to record and I do have images on the disk. I want to see the images of someone opening my ga...

view/export/create videos and/or events later on

If I have recorded images but no events I would like to be able to view and export videos by StartTime and EndTime. Is there a way to do that? One possible way to do that would be to create an event long after the video has been captured. If I can to that, I can then view or export the event as I wo...

Re: how to capture video

That explains it, I have 1.25, which is the newest version available from the Yum repository. A couple weeks ago I built and installed 1.27 but I coudn't find any instructions for installing a virtual host for zoneminder on Fedora. I still don't understand virtual hosts or why the documentation is s...

Re: how to capture video

I don't have anything listed under hours except "0" I installed zoneminder on 5/18 on a fresh install of Fedora 20 Howerver, it does appear that the version I got wasn't fixed. I replaced the red line with the green line from the git commit. and restarted zoneminders. Thanks for the tip. It doesn't ...

Re: how to capture video

In the event view window. I can open an event window, but as there are no events, nothing is there. I have tried "Record" and "Mocord". Still no events. Are events supposed to be created when everything is being recorded? The image works, there are no errors, the log says the images are being captu...

Re: how to capture video

The events are stored as images not as video. You can have ZM convert the images to video (assuming ffmpeg is installed and working properly) by selecting the 'Video' option, selecting the options you want, and clicking 'GENERATE VIDEO'. Where is the "Video" option? There is no "Video" tab on the o...
