Re: Upgrade Problem

I did a fresh install in a virtual machine and got it running. However, I'm not able to add a camera. Nothing happens when I click on the Add button.

Re: Upgrade Problem

I uninstalled zoneminder and did a fresh install following the updated instructions. I can log in to and create a database outside of zoneminder without a problem. But zoneminder still gives me the error: Unable to connect to ZM db.could not find driver

Upgrade Problem

I upgraded my server to Debian 10, then followed the instructions for installing ZM the easy way. I didn't see any errors and the service is running, but when I go to the link in my browser I get this error: Unable to connect to ZM db.could not find driver
Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks
Jim

Re: Need Recommendation for Zone Minder Server

Thank you for your reply. However, after watching this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjUa0UjZBYQ it seems like I need at minimum 5 mp with 8 mp being ideal. We have had property and autos stolen so details matter.

Need Recommendation for Zone Minder Server

I'm running ver 1.30.04 on Debian 9 with 4 2mp poe cameras set to Mocord at 9 fps and everything works fine. I want to upgrade the cameras to at least 4mp, possibly as high as 8mp if the price is right, as well as add 5 more cameras for a total of 9. My current server is a dual core cpu with a 1tb d...

Re: Problem Running Camera Feeds In a Widget

That works in a browser, but in the widgets it just shows garbled text. If I use the feed from the monitor it shows everything but the video.

I’m using ZoneMinder 1.30.4 trying to get camera feeds to work in a web page widget on Debian 9 with KDE 5.8.6 and kernal 4.18. When I put in the link for Montage view I can see the fps and the video borders even change colors in response to an alert, ie: a red border when a camera senses motion, bu...

Re: Best Camera to use?

I've tried Firefox, Chromium and Konqueror. None of them show video. The reason I tried IE is because the native camera software will only work with that due to Flash/SWF, and I thought if I could at least get video in IE then I could troubleshoot the others.

Re: Best Camera to use?

I tried the settings you mentioned as well as the info from the wiki. The best I get is a black screen in IE. I've attached a screen shot of the codec information from VLC

Best Camera to use?

I have ZoneMinder 1.29 set up on my Debian server. I have never been able to get a picture with the camera's I currently have, but they stream to VLC without a problem. I'm looking at replacing my existing Jennov camera's with something that works. I know there are a lot of camera's that people have...
