Re: cant play night events, just daily events

The event frames are stored and so is the video. I just checked one particular occurrence from a foscam 8910w, and all the individual frames (JPEGs) are fine and they cover the whole event (22 frames), but the MP4 covers just very few frames when i open it on VLC. So not sure if the encoding part is...

cant play night events, just daily events

So this is really weird. I can watch daily events just fine, either passthrough or x264 encoded from different camera models (hikvision & foscam). But the events that happen during the night (and i am thinking IR is the common thing) when i try to play them i get "The video could not be loaded, eith...

Re: event info metadata on video when using passthrough

That would be awesome Iconnor !
You did mention the event DB info - were you thinking about this as also another way to import (or move) events from one zoneminder install to another? You got me curious.

Foscam FI8910W - audio & control ?

Hello everyone Is there any video store setting & source URL that would allow the audio from a Foscam FI8910W event to be stored in the video? Also has anyone been able to control this camera model? I didn't have any luck on 1.32.3 using the instructions below https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Foscam_FI89...

event info metadata on video when using passthrough

When using "video writer" as "H264 Camera Passthrough" we (as expected) do not get the timestamp on top of the frames. Is there a way to get a TXT file or something describing when the event started/ended as well as any other relevant event metadata? I understand the video file is stored in a direct...

live stream works but not event replay (just see the first frame, hitting play doenst do anything)

Hello I found a few related posts from other users reporting similar problems (live view working fine, but not event replay) and tried a few things suggested on the posts but no luck yet. Here's the logs (i stopped the services, then tried to view an event, so i would only get logs pertinent to this...

Re: Does ZM 1.30.x use hardware acceleration?

Was searching this topic and bumped into this post. Just curious if there's any changes being done in zm to support ffmpeg using GPU acceleration?

thanks

Re: Analysis FPS

Here's where it was added (1.29): https://github.com/ZoneMinder/ZoneMinder/pull/956 I read through all the notes, and there is no explicit mention to the behaviour we think it should be, however there are some notes on the different buffers and variable FPS frames and so on. Not sure if the author i...

Re: Analysis FPS

Not sure if this is the key, but it seems there's a dedicated (different) buffer is analysis_fps is set: https://github.com/ZoneMinder/ZoneMinder/blob/master/src/zm_monitor.cpp#L1369:L1419 Maybe this is only copying the frames being analyzed to it, and therefore only storing those as opposed to the ...

Re: Analysis FPS

I was just researching this very same question and bumped into this post. I even tried going through the online github repo to see if I could find how AnalysisFPS info is used for the image/event storing but no luck so far. I also had the same expectation as you did (analysis FPS would be orthogonal...

Stored alarms dropping over 50% of frames when using "Analysis FPS" feature

Hello I did a fresh 1.30 install on FreeBSD 11 using the pre-compiled binaries, and I can record all 11~12 FPS my HD (1920x1080) cameras send (using FFMPEG on RTSP feeds) when I do not specify any "Analisys FPS" when creating a new monitor (leaving that box empty). When I add a value there (to ease ...
