Re: View partial (new) events whilst they're still recording (MP4/H264 storager)

Thanks for your thoughts. Yes, I've had to move from JPEG storage for quite a few reasons (a couple of cameras required audio recording; mostly, though, the underlying storage we're using struggles massively with millions of deletes in short succession, so at 10 - 15 million JPEG's recorded per day,...

View partial (new) events whilst they're still recording (MP4/H264 storager)

Unless this is already possible - it would be great to be able to view events whilst they're recording, when using the MP4 storage. I don't know if this is possible with JPEG storage but presume it is. Only, with 10 minute event lengths (on continuous recording) it makes it impossible to view an eve...

Re: Limiting the FPS of an RTSP stream using H264 passthrough

Thanks, rockedge, for your suggestion - and thanks all for your thoughts on this! So, a few things 'solved' this problem... - The company that manufacturers the cameras have a separate DVR application. Turns out that can manipulate settings on the camera that are completely locked out from all their...

Re: Limiting the FPS of an RTSP stream using H264 passthrough

I am actually aware that limiting it at ZM side is bad - and quite understand why, too... But, in this case, I haven't got much choice (or rather, I have to limit it between the camera and ZM - but not the cameras themselves. They're decent cameras hardware-wise but the software is designed to be cl...

Re: Limiting the FPS of an RTSP stream using H264 passthrough

To follow up with my own query; even with X264 encoding (rather than passthrough) it does not respect Frame Skip / Motion Frame Skip. So... SOL at the moment. Reduces the total capacity for storage by amount 4 times. Any thoughts - even those a little 'out there'?! Like running an FFMpeg (or similar...

Re: Limiting the FPS of an RTSP stream using H264 passthrough

Damn - I thought that may be the case! Assuming I can't find any way to limit it at the camera end (I've contacted the manufacturers, too) - can you think of any way that this can be achieved without significant CPU processing? I presume H264 re-encoding would work (haven't tested, though) but at a ...

Limiting the FPS of an RTSP stream using H264 passthrough

Hey all, We've gradually moved over to using H264 passthrough for storage on all our cameras but are struggling with the FPS that is being sent from the cameras. On 5 of our existing cameras we could limit the FPS at the camera side - but we're now adding 8 cameras that have no such option and each ...
