I disabled local code in default package because it left untested as I don't have any USB cameras. You need to compile ZM from ports with V4L knob on.
Ah, okay. That will have to wait a bit. I will report back once I try that. Thanks!

Re: ZM on FreeBSD

Yeah ... no. I am not going to buy a network camera just for this. If it were something work related that had to be working with ZM, then I would probably get an Axis and be done with it. But this is a "free" webcam that was given to me that I am just playing around with. That said, if there is a wa...

Re: FreeBSD 11.0, ZM 1.30, USB Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920

This is a bit confusing. How would adding the user "www-data" resolve this? By default on FreeBSD the nginx web server runs as the user "www", and that "www" user is a member of the "webcamd" group that owns /dev/video0 already.

Please clarify with more details.

Thanks for the reply! :)

Re: redirecting to systemctl

Even though you did not do a source code install you can probably get a clue by looking at this section in the documentation: http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.php/Documentation#Installation_from_Source Specifically the part near the top of that section that deals with MySQL. At least, when I bui...

Re: Compiling fails on Ubuntu 11.10 Server x64

Well, as far as I know, and I am no programmer, undefined reference usually means missing libraries or missing functionality in libraries due to some "--include- foo " missing at the time the library was built. Your undefined reference message is for ffmpeg stuff, which can always give one headaches...

Re: Compiling fails on Ubuntu 11.10 Server x64

<--- Not a *buntu user so I do not know how you would determine this. But, do you know for certain you have all the development versions of the libraries needed?

Re: redirecting to systemctl

Since no one else has answered you ... I am not a SuSE user, so I really have no clue about SuSE packages or the "redirecting to systemctl" message. Since you are using a pre-packaged SuSE 12.1 version of ZM 1.25 there may be differences from what you are seeing on the Wiki page. The best suggestion...

We have written customized linux scripts to do so but when we execute them in a loop after a while zoneminder stops responding or rather stops s...

Re: ACTi ACM-1231 Basic ZM Setup

For the record. I tried for several hours to get one of these cameras working in 640x480 @ 5 fps with RTSP over UDP. However, even though all the shared memory settings were higher than needed, ZM would show video for the camera for a few seconds, then the monitor would go black, then show a few mo...

Ah ha! The php-mysql module for the distribution was not loaded. I found the answer in this thread on the forum.
