Frames Skipped or Video Freezing

Whenever mocord activates, zm seems to quit actually recording. When I view the video of an event, the image freezes for the duration of the motion. When I review the frames, the frame numbers are sequential, but frame 26 to 27 will be images from seconds or more apart. I had a conversation with a n...

Re: Image Quality Issues

That seems to have fixed it, thanks! Between this, losing the old remote mrl source and other problems, It's been a two week long nightmare since I decided to "simply" update everything to U 18.04/ZM 1.32.x. Finally it's all back to functional (and working a bit better than before I might add). Than...

SOLVED: Image Quality Issues

I had an installation of zoneminder running and everything was fine. It was time to upgrade though, so installed Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver and a fresh installation of 1.32. Everything's a clean install, and despite setting everything the same I'm having problems. The first one was solved, but it le...

Re: "Cascade" of camera failures

Sounds like PHP versions frequently cause issues. This wasn't the right solution for a problem I was having, but it was a suggestion:

Likely in doing the upgrade to Bionic you ended up with two versions of PHP. Bionic uses PHP 7.2 so you need to uninstall the older version.

Re: 404 RTSP

Partially solved! Instead of using "remote" as the source type, I went with ffmpeg and used the mrl format for the source path rtsp://[user]:[password]@[ip]:[port,probably554]//Streaming/Channels/[0 or 1], method was UDP. Just started trying different settings and it happened. Strangely, I know for ...

Re: "Cascade" of camera failures

Normally, I don't answer too many questions here because I don't have anything to input. This case is different. Based on my own experiences (not with wireless cameras, but with wireless in general, both WiFi and other radio technologies) and what you say specifically in 1 and 2, I would take a look...

Re: 404 RTSP

Likely in doing the upgrade... I could and should have been a little bit more precise in how I worded things. In the process of "upgrading" to Bionic and ZM 1.32, I upgraded the hard drive for a freshly formatted (and much larger) one. So, my Ubuntu/ZM upgrades were actually clean installations on ...

[SOLVED] 404 RTSP

After that annoying pop up telling me for months that there was an update to ZM, I updated myself to Ubuntu Server Bionic Beaver (18.04.x) and Zoneminder 1.32.x Before doing so, I took screenshots of all the configurations for the camera. Once everything was done updating and it was time to configur...

zmNinja "Invalid API/API access failed."

Everything else about my ZM setup seems to be running okish save for some weird errors in log which I've posted about. Unfortunately, I can't get zmNinja to connect. I installed zm 1.30.4 using the provided instructions on a fresh installation of ubuntu server 17.10, have OPT_USE_API, OPT_USE_AUTH, ...

All sorts of errors, log state constantly Alarm

I've finally got zoneminder running pretty solidly on my ubuntu server, but I've been noticing a lot of glitches, like viewing events sometimes freezes, I can't export the log, etc. I installed using the basic instructions provided on zms site. Here are images of the logs (because I can't export the...

zmNinja "Invalid API/API access failed." (ZM API issue)

(Subject edited by Asker - to highlight API misconfiguration issue) I am running zm v 1.30.4 on Ubuntu server 17.10. The console works perfectly on my web browser, and in the options API is enabled. When I downloaded and went to use zmNinja, authentication is successful, but I get the screen saying...

Solved: Blue Screen Is Best I Get

I'm not sure what specifically I changed, I think it may have been checking the final RTSP Response Media URL box in combination of everything else. Below are images of the settings I needed to get ZM to work with my "HJT" brand camera. If you have an HJT branded camera or the software shows up has ...

Re: Blue Screen Is Best I Get

And I've searched the forums here for anything relating to my camera's make (HJT) or it's software TH38M-ONVIF-P2P V2.5.2.26 and found nothing.

Re: Blue Screen Is Best I Get

Suggestions.... (1) reduce the frame rate in the camera (not zm) to say 5 frames and in zm maybe set it to 10 frames (2) Does the network stream work in VLC [ media --> open network stream -- input the url] -- usually rtsp://{username}:{pswd}@{ip:port}//Streaming/Channels/1 If the above stream does...
