Re: Cannot view event video, .sock does not exist

Are the videos saving to the HDD/SD? You should see a <something>.mp4 file somewhere, or jpegs, if you are saving as jpeg. Make sure default settings are not set to H264 encode. You should be using passthrough or JPEGs for 1.32 on ARM. Do you know for certain that the camera is supported in ZM? Does...

Re: "Capturing" but not seeing any video

Try to get the camera to work in either ffmpeg or VLC first. See http://wiki.zoneminder.com/Finding_Camera_Stream_Paths You can post pictures or text. Pictures are best for the settings. For the logs, you can just copy and paste the text. If you are new to ZM, It's good to test a known camera first,...

Re: Help: Which brand is this ip camera?

Looks remarkably similar to what foscam sold as a 9805 or 9804. If the reset button doesn't work, you can use wireshark or tcpdump to listen to what its sending out. It may have the ip info as mentioned in the previous reply. Post some pictures of the inside, if you are able. You can compare with fo...

Re: Pi 4 with 1.32.2 - only 1 camera works

You moved from a Xen VM to an RPI, am I correct? That is moving from x86 to ARM. ARM can't keep up with the same number of cameras. You can probably get more than one though. Try lowering the FPS on the cameras, and see if you can get two running. You can also lower the Resolution. That is my first ...

Re: Error

For the other settings, you can leave them at the defaults if your camera is working. Read the ZM docs if you are interested in more information. Perhaps purchase a book on H264 encoding... ZM should be set to the same resolution that VLC or FFMPEG reports. Sometimes cameras have non-standard resolu...

Re: Axis Q7404 Quad encoder

Open up the web site for the encoder, and view a camera stream. Right click on the video stream and choose view image. Or you can copy the URL of the video stream from the html source. If it's a URL that ends with MJPG or JPG you can put that URL into Zoneminder. But you'll want to add <username>:<p...

Re: Error

ZM 1.32 on ARM has a bug where by default it's set to use the H264 encoding. Change that to H264 passthrough. Passthrough has less CPU usage than H264 encoding or the JPEG saving. Alternatively, you can try the JPEG saving, but it will be less efficient. Set Max FPS in ZM to 0 (that is used for loca...

Re: Error

the status commands show that ZM is running and installed correctly. What is the make/model of camera? What settings did you use for the camera setup? Cameras can be tested in VLC gui or terminal ffmpeg (ffmpeg -i rtsp://<user>:<pass>@<ip>:<port>/<path> > output.mp4). Cameras don't run in yahoo, tha...

Re: Repeted Error on Email service

Are you using modect? You probably have some events that are longer than others, causing it to go over the email limit. What email service are you using? Limits for outbound emails vary. Some popular sites have a 25MB limit. Videos by default are in /var/cache/zoneminder/ unless you changed it, via ...

You haven't indicated what the problem actually is, asides from the console log. What is not working? The logs for Zoneminder are in syslog, and in /var/log/zm/ (also in db). Copy some output from your syslog here that includes Zoneminder startup. Also what happens when you type as root systemctl st...

Re: samsung sdh install

You have misconceptions about how Zoneminder is used. The bad news is, that you can't just run Zoneminder on the DVR instead of the GNU\Linux that samsung is probably running on it. It would require a significant porting effort, and DVRs are abandonware. The good news is, that you can run a second (...

Re: ZoneMinder was not compiled with the X264 MP4 video writer, check dependencies (x264 and mp4v2)

I've seen permissions errors (with non default storage) cause videos to not record. Another note: you are using an RPI4 and trying to run 5 cameras. This is a lot for an RPI. I would recommend starting with one, make sure it's recording to disk, in the mode you want (modect, mocord, or record) then ...

Re: ZoneMinder was not compiled with the X264 MP4 video writer, check dependencies (x264 and mp4v2)

debian 10 deprecated some libraries that we use. So the version in raspbian comes without those features. Go to https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com for instructions on how to get our version which has everything. Raspbian has different repos from Debian 10, and when I installed it two months ago or so (p...
