Gray Overlays Recorded Event Image

I am noticing some of my recorded Events are being rendered (hehe) useless due to a gray layer superseding the image, as if a gray layer was placed on top of the existing image. There is a little bit of transparency to the gray layer, but it is not enough to keep the video usable. It does not last f...

Re: Video Record lengths

If the CPU is maxed out, it's possible to get recordings of short lengths (e.g. w/RPI, and or high res/FPS cameras) as zm can't keep up. In that case, it's managed by lowering FPS / res. What is the next thing to look at after CPU usage? Tasks: 398 total, 14 running, 384 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zomb...

Re: How Do I Delete Over 2M Log Events

Perhaps I need to learn how to refine my searches, as I did search before posting.

Seems the link you provided does not offer an official solution, but rather a weak workaround.

Thanks for the info, will look into that.
Did you find a fix for this? I am experiencing the exact same thing. All of my events are 9-12 seconds long. I would like to know how to adjust them to longer recording times if possible.

Missing Video Between Events

I am regularly experiencing gaps or missing video between events. What are some recommendations to remedy this? As an example: If my an event in real-time is 20 seconds then I may end up with two events, each for 9 seconds, or 18 seconds total, with a 2 second gap between the two events. I want no g...

I have over 2,000,000 log entries, and quickly growing as I add more devices, and I would like to know how to delete large amounts of these logs and/or all of these log entries at once. Because my server is generating a lot of log entries at the moment, when I use the "CLEAR" button, it deletes 100 ...

Re: Question about possible compatible camera for zoneminder

Did you go figure out an answer to this?

I am not a big fan of this, but sometimes it is necessary, perhaps order the item, try it real quick and if it works great, if it does not work return it. ??

Re: Cannot Save Images New Installation Woes

Thank you for the response! I did not get to this as fast as I wanted, but I was able to follow your instructions today. So far, it seems to be working very well! I have only added two or three cameras as tests, and they have only been live for a few minutes, but I will check on them throughout the ...
