Re: damaged install

ps aux |grep zm

will list all zm processes, which you can then kill by the pid

Without knowing the distro, can't say other than helping with the debian 1.25 package, which is all I use.

Re: IP Camera substreams

If your camera has facility to produce more than one stream of differing qualities simultaneously, yes.

Axis, Y-Cam do.

Foscam doesn't. (Yes, you can specify resolution on the URL, but it resets the global setting and exposure)

Re: Need advice for IPCam

In my experience, NONE of the ip cameras with built-in infrared LED's give anything that can be described as "good" further than 5 meters away. I use a variety to monitor horse stables that are 3.2mx3.2m square and they're fine for that, but elsewhere when I use them for security the subject has to ...

Re: Foscam longevity

The components used are essentially the same as every other ip camera, so I would expect the camera and web server aspects to last as long as anything else - provided it's well protected. If you mean the pan/tilt mechanism of some foscams - of which the FI8903W doesn't appear to be one, well, it's o...

Re: IP Camera over the internet excessive usage

Just do the maths. Get the size of a jpg. Multiply that by 6, then again by 86400 - that's the amount of bandwidth (plus some more for control/overhead) you're using per day. Not surprising you're capping out 20gb. 6fps is A LOT for going over a metered connection. I use 0.25 to 1fps when I have to ...

Re: Build instructions are elusive/borderline irresponsibly

Yes please!

I did some notes on getting it built on debian for the first beta, but they were a long way from complete and I for one would appreciate a simple howto.

And if anyone can package well once the final is released....

Re: What makes an IP camera ZM compatible?

The ability to provide jpg or mjpeg make it a certainty to work with zm. Many others will work too - rtsp or http, mpeg4 or h264 - best thing is to find something that you think might work and ask in here. Note that jumping from 320x240 to 1080p will increase load on your server a lot, at least 8 ti...

Re: DVB

Interesting. Maybe. If you can manage to use ffmpeg to split out the stream, zm should be able to record it. (Set ffmpeg as the monitor type, and set the parameters in the source tab) Failing that there may be some way to convert the image to a mjpeg or jpg stream using mjpeg-streamer or similar, or...

Re: Help Design Low-Power ZoneMinder and HA system

Sounds like a fun project, although one that'll probably need tweaking a lot before it's right! ZM uses relatively little cpu when just recording. It only had to decode the stream, write the files. The rpi has zoneminder in its repos and may be a nice low-power starting place, although I have no exp...

Try using the camera wired rather than wireless.

Re: Foscam fi9821

The shared memory settings may well need tweaking - see the Wiki FAQ and search for "shmall". The number there may need to be bigger than given for megapixel.

And read the logs - /var/log/syslog is where zm mutters constantly (in debian and ubuntu at least)
