Re: Setup/Configuration Issue - Live View Localhost, not on others

18.04 install guides are in the wiki, and it should work. I haven't heard any talk that 18.04 is unstable. 19.10 and newer is the ones that may require some work at the moment. Some libraries are being changed, so this is a bit more at your own risk (mysql 8 is deprecating the password hash function...

Re: AXIS P1357-E

Might need to buy one used online to 100% confirm they work.

This brand is generally well supported. I looked at the user manual for the P1357 and it indicates it has Onvif, and RTSP (H264) / MJPEG, so I think it's very likely to work. But, I didn't see an actual path in the manual... Check ispy.

Re: Work only one camera

What is the load of the CPU and RAM usage? Is this on ARM?

Try lowering FPS and Resolution on both cameras. These kind of errors can appear when you overload an SBC.

Re: cant play night events, just daily events

Are the videos being recorded on the filesystem? Check /var/cache/zoneminder (default) or your storage area. scp them off the camera server, and confirm they aren't corrupted somehow.

What camera make / models are affected?

Re: broken debian upgrade to 1.30->1.32: multiple broken monitors

Can you confirm the streams are working in ffmpeg and/or VLC? Also see https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Finding_Camera_Stream_Paths VLC is from gui. FFMPEG is from terminal (ffmpeg -i "rtsp://<user>:<pass> etc..." output.mp4) Does onvif report the same paths? I've seen cameras change paths after disconne...

Re: broken debian upgrade to 1.32: Constant ZM_DIR_EVENTS already defined

Were there any upgrade errors, or did apt/apt-get complete successfully? If you can't decipher the broken upgrade quickly, you can always apt-get purge and install again. Just backup the DB before reinstalling, and restore it after its up and running. Sometimes you have to run zmupdate.pl manually i...

Re: New install - permission denied...

Items that can cause ZM to be unable to show video stream in my experience are: 1) Browser is out of date. 2) Javascript not enabled 3) The paths in /etc/apache2/conf-enabled/zoneminder.conf have been edited or are otherwise not working due to permission issues. These permissions issues would be wit...

Re: Wansview W3 camera fresh install ZM 1.32

Based on the logs it looks like zmc is having issues reading the stream. Do you have another camera you can test? This would rule out a faulty install. Used cameras can be bought for cheap. Get an old axis, which is almost guaranteed to work, and use that to prove zm is installed correctly. Then try...

I built a 4G connected ZM server here. https://forums.zoneminder.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=28775 I don't pull from the server, I only record locally, (with external remote access through openvpn) but it looks like you need about 40GB of data a month with this setup, for modest viewing.

Re: Storage path

I assume when you say storage path, you mean where videos are saved, and not where zoneminder is installed.

Re: Installing zoneminder on Ubuntu 19.10 with existing nginx installation

Installing ZM on nginx, is more work if you are not comfortable with web servers. By default it runs apache. More info will be here on these forums.

The guides on the wiki cover Ubuntu: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Ubuntu

1.32.3 is the current stable release.

Re: Zoneminder ignores Section length

6 720p at 15fps each... That is a lot depending on how many cores, and how up to date the cpu is. You only have 4, and its a VM.

Lower FPS on all cameras to something like 5, get it stable, then increase fps afterwards. Use passthrough.

Re: Wansview W3 camera fresh install ZM 1.32

Looks like remote can't parse the stream. Try ffmpeg, or libvlc source types, or a different path.

Try Onvif, and the camera web portal - there might be multiple streams.

Some cameras can offer mjpeg, and rtsp streams. Others offer only rtsp streams.
