Re: Advice for high quality still images from h264 stream

Appreciate the input. I don't have a great perspective on the road .. as in no overhead perspective. Reading the best practices for detection indicates off center more than 30 degrees is not optimal. I only have a roadside perspective. I will experiment with fps and see if image quality is better. A...

Re: Advice for high quality still images from h264 stream

Reading documentation from OpenALPR and Phd papers seems to imply I should reduce my resolution and increase the FPS.

VBR with cap is recommended.

Trying reduced resolution 2304x1296 @ 30fps.

Advice for high quality still images from h264 stream

I'm looking for advice on the image quality front. I have a system that monitors a busy rural road corner and would like to do license plate detection, manual or automatic. In the manual case, the still image quality from a Amcrest 4k camera is barely enough. Remove storage size as a limitation ... ...

Re: Coral edgetpu on ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS zm 1.35.10

Missed the step to grant the www-data user access

sudo usermod -a -G plugdev www-data

Works! Huge time improvement over CPU based detection.

Re: Update Diskspace for events

I jumped to 1.35.9 but continue to see no function from the purge filter. I enabled debug and ran the exposed sql. The events diskspace column is null.

Is it the diskspace filter that is supposed to update this column?

Any help appreciated

Re: Update Diskspace for events

Thanks

Re: Update Diskspace for events

I had a similar problem and updated to the most current 1.35.6 without resolution. I updated to 1.35.7 and still have the same issue. What am I missing here? There are two filters in the standard build ... PurgeWhenFull and UpdateDiskSpace. Why is there a filter to update disk space? zm-filter-sql.P...

Re: New Events view WIP

Previous to the new events display you could access all events. The top of the page showed a page indicator and you could easily jump around. In the new view you get 25 events in 3 pages and that's it. Say I want to look at three days ago, you could cycle thru the pages to find three days ago. Has t...

Re: New Events view WIP

Also, the page control does not work beyond the 3 pages it shows.

Re: New Events view WIP

If you choose 25 lines per page you lose the lower right pages control.

I would like to see a >> to jump to the end

Re: New Events view WIP

New events look is nice.

One question, how do you jump to the most recent events?

In the past you could do this from the pages listed at the top. I assume maybe you would use the timeline but I keep 3 months of history and the timeline is very slow.

Am I missing something?
