Re: ZM dropping cameras

Just an update to this thread. Zoneminder is still dropping cameras - as described above. The only (rather imperfect) solution I have found is to install python-onvif, see: https://github.com/quatanium/python-onvif The act of Initializing an ONVIFCamera instance seems to nudge my lost cameras back i...

Re: ZM dropping cameras

All the ones that drop out have 'Robox' written on them. But also, some Robox cameras never drop out

Re: ZM dropping cameras

Thanks Garry Interesting idea - i'll look into it, although as I pointed out: "I can't get them back by restarting ZM (or indeed by restarting the Sunfire x2250)" I have read quite a lot of forum posts related to this issue and one suggestion that comes up is tuning mysql. Now bizarrely, I have buil...

ZM dropping cameras

Hi I installed zm1.32 on a Sunfire x2250 with a 8Tb new HDD, running Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS. I have 16 IP cameras connected and am able to view their RTSP streams using FFMPEG and TCP. However, ZM consistently drops certain cameras and I can't get them back by restarting ZM (or indeed by restarting the ...

Re: Signal loss causes blue screen that requires camera reset

Back on this topic - hopefully for the last time. I had my whole Ubuntu server and zoneminder system setup on 2 separate HDDs, one =350Gb and one = 2Tb. All of the blue screen problems described above were with the 2Tb HDD set up. A few weeks ago the 2Tb HDD started kicking up HDD errors so I shutdo...

So tried: sudo su -s/bin/bash -c"python /home/mark/python-onvif/IPCam_Restart_Scripts/RB_Robox3.py " www-data and got: [Errno 13] Permission denied so yes, it seems www-data doesn't have permission to run my python scripts.

Re: Commands won't run from filters

Wow! So many users! So many groups!
More groups than users - who would have thought it?
The fog is beginning to clear - thanks

Re: Commands won't run from filters

I've learnt on a need to know basis. So i've been using unix for 30 years, have published several pieces of python software, and now mainly write in C++ (all in an academic setting), but have never been formally taught any, so I guess my knowledge is good in places, but poor in others, and poorly st...

Re: Commands won't run from filters

I tried going down the API route, but fell at the first hurdle with curl (it works finr from a browser but that's not much use for me). I tried: curl -d "username='********'&password='**********'&action=login&view=console" -c cookies.txt https://localhost/zm/index.php I get the errors: curl: (6) Cou...

Re: Commands won't run from filters

Apologies for the delay - been away.

I don't get this. Who is the www-data user? Is that a user? How do I find out what users there are on my system (I thought there was just me and root).
I'm happy to try the line, but I don't understand what it is supposed to do.

All best

Mark

Re: Signal loss causes blue screen that requires camera reset

Hi So I tried installing Node.js and npm, as it has an onvif implementation. After much more pain, I concluded that it was not possible to get this to work - I couldn't even get basic Node.js and npm working. Then I came across quatanium/python-onvif. I have a bit of a python background so had a go,...
