zmNinja Old Versions

What is the process for pinning old versions of zmNinja for an Android or iphone? My use case, is that I have a server that I don't want to necessarily upgrade, and yet I want to use zmNinja. I'm afraid that if I use it the automatic updates of the phone will eventually break compatibility between t...

Re: foscam connection

Check the wiki for info on Foscams. They can be troublesome when updating them. I know some of them require individual updates to go in order. Quite tricky, and slow. You might have a counterfeit model. Some of them require activex to edit the settings via web. There is likely an API. You could ask ...

Re: Newbie help request about server install

Each single site has to configured following Server Installation instructions or it could be simple installed as a stand alone site and in a second time connected, with all the other three sites, to the headquarter? As mentioned, there are a few ways to do this, whether you use the :multi-server" m...

Re: Zoneminder best practices

1. I plan to install a ZoneMinder server on centos 7. I imagine to use 2 network interfaces : - eth0 to access to the admin ZM web interface and video clients, (users subnet, can go to internet) - eth1, a subnet only for ip cameras and switchs (cannot go to internet) Is that possible ? Will the vid...

Re: ZM 1.32.3 (and 1.33.1) - bug on replay recorded JPEG images

My reply was to roadster. Pat2, I've read through this thread quickly, usually in this case it's a problem of an incorrect installation, or a less supported distribution. Those not familiar with ZM are advised to use a supported Ubuntu, or Debian following the installation guides on the wiki https:/...

Re: Alarm Frame Count not working

Try adjusting pre event image count and let us know if that resolves it.

Re: ZM 1.32.3 (and 1.33.1) - bug on replay recorded JPEG images

I can see the live feed of my cameras, but no events, stills or frames... It says in the frame, where the video should be displayed: video could not be loaded either because the server or network failed. ARM ZM can't use H264 encoding, but by default on new installations it is selected in 1.32.3. G...

Re: Buffer -> Alarm Frame Count not being honoured

What are the general, source, and storage settings for your camera? I tested the alarm frame count on my 1.32.3 machine, and while I haven't had events less than the specified frames yet, I did see that the FPS # on console gets broken as soon as Alarm Frame Count is adjusted. Before my cameras repo...

Re: Stuck in Privacy Page - Can't Access Console (New Install)

Mint is an unusual choice for ZM. Which instructions did you use to install it? You should be using the wiki guides here: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Helpful_user_contributed_resources#Installation_Procedure See the Ubuntu specific guides. The privacy page is loaded if ZM_SHOW_PRIVACY in the DB (zm....

Re: H264 Pass through VS X264 Server Load

Realize, that if you enable saving JPEGs, you are now using more CPU which defeats the purpose of H264 passthrough. It's not that you can't do it, but understand it has a trade off. Writing 1920x1080 pixel JPEGs at 8FPS will be CPU intensive. Saving JPEGs is how ZM =<1.30.4 worked - save JPEG of eac...

Re: Reuse old DVR or purchase a Video Capture Card ? Please suggest

I would not bother with a PCI capture card. Instead, you can use an IP video encoder. See the wiki for the current hardware recommendations https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Hardware_Compatibility_List. Streaming from the DVR is also a good option if it is compatible with ZM. Read the user manual of the D...

Re: Migrate Zoneminder to new server

Easiest thing to do when migrating is to copy the Monitor configurations only. That will save you if you have greather than a few cameras, from reconfiguring everything. You can backup the old db with mysqldump, restore it to the new server, and then run zmupdate.pl which will auto update the db to ...
