Re: Which stream is more efficient?

I've found that the best performance is with Nodect, and external motion detection. There is a downside, however, that you have to setup the external motion detection. In this case, you'd have the 3MP stream, and then Nodect on it. Yes that's obvious , but the question was how to deal motion detect...

Re: status display numbers?

Yes, had in mind too (as htop show), until i've got figures well over 4 (5+).
I'm sure, as that was observed on different systems not only on one.
Could it be overclocking or kernel dealing with CPU states and speed?

Re: Which stream is more efficient?

Hi BiloxiGeek! I've read your post a few days ago, so my late answer. I have exact same config as you expecting lower computer load. So your question finally encouraged me to test that. option 1. : 3MP stream, nodect linked to VGA stream modect. Alarms recorded: 3MP h264 camera passthrough, VGA anal...

proposal of enhanced alarm cause view on linked monitors

Hi! I propose a better alarm cause view on linked monitor: My main hi resolution camera stream recording is triggered by a linked low res. stream motion detection. Main stream monitor "nodect" is linked to low stream monitor in "modect" function. All alarm causes on main stream are "Linked", so this...

ffmpeg UDP smearing solved

I post here, as ZM documentation is pretty old. I had unsolved ffmpeg UDP stream smearing problem for more than two years, with zm-1.30.0 installed and working 800 days without a single touch! That was not so huge problem, as I set source to "remote", and there the video is clean. As recent ZM from ...

Re: current running state display

Thank you for a reply.

Pointing out, that state is changed, only display of status is wrong.
When selecting saved state the one did change (cameras functions changed according to saved state), only display status is always "running" for a different saved but running states.

current running state display

In zm-1-30.0 the web console shows run state as is with saved text. For example: I saved states "live_view" and "away" as states, where cameras shows only current video without motion detection, and another where motion detection is active and saves events. The WEB console correctly show the above s...

Re: date format problem

As one of the core developers, let me say that I agree that ZoneMinder should fully respect and be configurable to display dates and times in whatever format the user requires. However there is a lot of work to do and I don't know when I will get to it. I will be very happy to review and help with ...

This is more than a decade old problem: In Zoneminder the date format is fixed to YYYMMDD in a logs and events listing. There is no way to change it to locale f.i. DDMMYYYY.
