Re: Alarm Frame Count not working

Thanks asker. That thread identifies the problem as being related to having a pre-event count set to a value less than the desired alarm frame count. In my case, I have pre-alarm set to 10, and the alarm count set to 3, so I don't understand why I am still getting alarms with a frame count of 1? Wha...

Re: Alarm Frame Count not working

What I am asking is: given the monitor settings (that is, alarm frame count =3) why are the monitors entering the alarm state on the first alarm frame? The query results were my, apparently misguided, attempt to summarize pertinent data from my system to provide evidence that the monitors were actua...

Re: Alarm Frame Count not working

Thanks! I had missed that post. . . However, my pre-event count is already at 10: mysql> select Monitors.Name, Monitors.ImageBufferCount, Monitors.WarmupCount, Monitors.PreEventCount, Monitors.PostEventCount, Monitors.AlarmFrameCount, Events.Id, Events.AlarmFrames from Monitors inner join Events on ...

Re: How to disable PTZ motion detection durning camera movement

Not 100% sure what you are doing, goodie, so I am likely missing something, but isn't that what zmu function -n is for? To temporarily cancel alarms while you are doing something like moving a camera? I also thought the API Disarm function would do this, but on review, maybe it will only cancel an e...

Alarm Frame Count not working

Please refer to the query and results below. I don't understand why this isn't working? I change states a couple of times a day, so restarting Zoneminder isn't going to solve the problem, it consistently is not responding to the Alarm Frame Count parameter properly. I apologize, that this has been a...

Re: Lost frames, 50 sec section length, & zm.ffmpeg.cpp error

Thanks for responding so quickly Isaac. However, those fields are already clear. Is there anything else obvious or other information that I can provide that would be helpful?

Pixel difference as percentage

So: I have a couple situations where I have to run a greater pixel difference on my zones in the daytime verses the night. Some people have set up simple cron jobs to switch between day and night settings, etc. but day and night aren't always at the same time, in my application it is affected by sha...

Re: ability to rerun a video through detection process

If you are using ffmpeg I think that you can simply use a file for the source path, e.g. "file://home/xena/test.mp4"

FWIW, I found this buried in another post, tried it on my install, and it works for me, but beyond that, I'm useless on this topic.

Re: 1.33.6 watch view & New Event playback problems

The streamreplayimage buffer was 1000, but I set it to 2000, and now things are working.

Thanks!

And, by the way, 1.33 looks great and works really nicely. Thank you for all of the improvements!

1.33.6 watch view & New Event playback problems

I am currently doing both pass-through video and saving .jpgs In watch view the live view works perfectly, and pause works, but I cannot rewind or step back, and play from pause doesn't play from pause, but instead reverts to live view . . . I'm not getting any error messages in the log. I also can'...

Re: Gapless Events - Fast Forward reverts back to 1x for each new event

Actually, I've just upgraded to 1.32.3 from the PPA, and I don't see any change in behaviour from the original defect Same here. Still resets to 1x on new event. Also, for me, in the progress bar banner the zoneminder event timestamp is static with the event start time stamp. Previous beta versions...

Re: Gapless Events - Fast Forward reverts back to 1x for each new event

I experience this also, saving only h.264. And I agree that it would be an improvement to keep the playback speed from event to event.

Keep stills for new events, then delete?

I suspect that I might be missing something simple: I use ZM as an alarm to notify me when there might be a problem in an area, and as a digital recorder (so that if something happens, I can go back and look at the video for something I might not have known I was interested in until after the fact)....
