Re: Linked Monitors and OD <Best Practice> Discussion

So, I've been running this config for several days (since the original post) and am surprised at how well OD works on the low res cams. I'll keep this config and just rely on the HiRes monitors for "Forensic" review and live feeds. Next I'll move on to LPR and Facial recognition. Curious if those wi...

Re: How to fix the zoneminder fill up rootsystem 100%

In ZM it's Options.Storage.AddNewStorage.
Point it to your new mount you created (either new drive or moved partitions)

Then go to each camera config and on the storage tab, select the storage you created above.

Re: Zoom and Pan

Correct.
Click zooms and centers around the point of the click.
zoom back out, re-aim and fire again ;)

Unless you're in zmNinja then it just center zooms no mater where you click.

Re: Frames from events are not showing

Start by debugging in the browser and the path (url) to the "non-working" image.
Work that back to the file system and check rights and ownership.

Re: Improve motion detection using pre-recorded videos?

I presume you have linked the Primary stream (aka monitor) to the secondary monitor. If so: No. Spend the time to get modect working the way you want on the secondary monitor. In addition to the docs (which must be read slowly and thoroughly), check out these https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Various_ZM_t...

Re: How to fix the zoneminder fill up rootsystem 100%

Use your lvm tools to create a separate partition for event storage and configure ZM to use it.

Or just install a separate drive.

Linked Monitors and OD <Best Practice> Discussion

I'm running 1.34.22 on UB20.04 server, NGINX/MariaDB (Discrete install not Docker). Running quite nicely, very stable, filters and cleanup work, very tolerant of cheap cams... Works well. GJ @Ic0n I'm running ES&OD in the stock form from @asker. (Great work btw). My question comes from the use of li...

Re: camera shows vertical striped effect

Start by clearing your FPS fields in the camera config. That always causes me issues. Then see if ffmpeg is throwing any errors if you stream your rstp feed to the command line. Something like: ffmpeg -i "rtsp://camuser:campasswd@camip:554/Streaming/Channels/2?tcp" ./test.mp4 (This is a HikVision rs...

Linked monitors and Montage

I use a low-res-low-fps-detect linked to high-res-higher-fps-record design on my system(s). Especially now with multi-port, I'd like to be able to use a group of the low-res monitors in montage for over-all area status/monitoring. But, when a operator clicks the low-res monitor (for a better view) i...

Multi-Port Trick - iptables

Okay, multi port is cool. By setting Options.Server.MIN_STREAMING_PORT to some value (in this example 30000) you turn it on. Its discussed here https://medium.com/zmninja/multi-port-storage-areas-and-more-d5836a336c93 So you can configure your web server (Apache/NGINX) to listen to all those ports b...

You'll want to look this over too: https://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/st ... erver.html

It's from older versions of ZM but the logic is good.

Re: Camera Audio is not play

Audio only records when the given monitor's type is ffmpeg and the storage option is set to h264 passthrough with the audio checked. You can test with ffmpeg from the command line and see if the output file plays sound. Something like this: ffmpeg -i rtsp://user:password@camIP:554/Streaming/Channels...

I couldn't get it to work on UB14 either.
Rebuild with UB18
