Re: ZM dropping cameras

When I first started to get serious about using ZM I encountered a similar problem to yourself. In my setup I have a NVR which has the cameras attached via BMC cables. The NVR provides two streams for each camera, Hi-Res and Low-Res. My first installation of ZM was on a single server which had all o...

[SOLVED] ZoneMinder behind NGINX

After a lot of searching and testing I think I've resolved my issues by adding the following to my config. # kill cache add_header Last-Modified $date_gmt; add_header Cache-Control 'no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate, proxy-revalidate, max-age=0'; if_modified_since off; expires off; etag off;

ZoneMinder behind NGINX

I have a odd issue but I'm not sure where to look for a resolution, therefore I'm hoping that some of you clever people will offer me some suggestions. I'm running with a multi server setup, 4 servers in total. Three of the servers handle the Hi-Res camera feeds and the forth looks after all of the ...

Re: Multi Server install with linked cameras

Linked Monitors most be on the same server. I'll have to think of some way to make it work across servers efficiently. Good to no. I'm surprised it's not been mentioned more, previously. Having experimented with different setups, the one I have at present works great for my needs. I'm also running ...

Multi Server install with linked cameras

In my setup I have 4 ZM Servers running. My cameras are connected to a NVR unit that provides 2 streams per camera, 1 high res and the other low res. 3 of the ZM Servers take the high res feeds and the forth server has all of the low res feeds. The setup works great and performs quite well. However ...

Re: Install on Shared Hosting?

Although I'm sure you can install ZM onto a shared hosting server, why would you want to do that? Not only do you risk someone else being able to access your data, you have little control over the performance of the server. In addition I think you'll find the installation process is quite a complica...

Re: Central and Remote location setup

Out of the box I think your going to struggle to get this to work as you describe. Your main issue is going to be the bandwidth required for both live streaming and storing of events. Your central server will need a great deal of processing power to provide you with a good quality solution, I've fou...

Re: Kodi plugin [plugin.video.zoneminder] 2.0.0

Hi Peter, I installed this last night so see it working and found a small issue. Looking at the code I think I've found where the problem is, or at least on my setup. active_monitor['video'] = '{base_url}/cgi-bin/nph-zms? My cgi-bin is actually cgi-bin-zm instead, so will change the code to reflect ...

Re: Kodi plugin [plugin.video.zoneminder] 2.0.0

Sounds good to me, the only thing that I can think of that would be good to have is the Montage view. Not sure how easy that's likely to be.

I look forward to your updates.

Re: Kodi plugin [plugin.video.zoneminder] 2.0.0

Good man,

I used the old version of this when it was working. So will be installing this version to see how well it works.

Thanks for the update and I look forward to seeing the results. Do you have any further plans with it?

Regards,

Garry

Re: Linked Monitors

I think I've found the reason why it's not working as I expect. I'm running a Multi-Server configuration. All of my Lo-Res streams are on one server and the Hi-Res streams are spread across three other servers. So it seems that Linked Monitors only works if all the streams are on the same server. Wh...

Re: Linked Monitors

Thanks for getting back to me. I've now discovered that I can link between Lo-Res cameras, but not between Lo-Res and Hi-Res. So it's more than likely I've setup my system in a way that's not compatible. I've created two groups, one of each set of feeds, such as all of the Lo-Res in one group and th...

ZoneMinder and Chromecast

Hello everyone, I have recently purchased a new Sony TV which uses Andriod TV and has Chromecast built in. What I'd like to be able to do is view my cameras using the TV. Has anyone managed to get a good working solution? There doesn't appear to be an app available yet, like zmNinja for Andriod TV. ...
