There could be a number of causes, two I can think of are: Possible cause: Motion Detection Analysis taking too long. Ways to detect: Check how busy your CPU is. Solutions: -Reducing load on the ZM box in general. -Increase the ZM audit time interval (AUDIT_CHECK_INTERVAL). -Reducing the motion dete...

Zoneminder doesn't work with the latest version of ffmpeg on SVN. The SVN revision of ffmpeg I use is revision 21010. You can check out that version with the commend by using the argument "-r 21010" in you svn checkout command.

Try opening a browser to http://localhost/zm

If that doesn't work, look in your apache web folder (it was in /var/www the last time I used a websever on Ubuntu) to see any other folders you have there.

It might be a problem with the file path to where the zoneminder events are stored. Or a permission problem with the event folder.

Check the zoneminder logs (usually in /tmp) and you're system logs (/var/log) for any errors regarding zoneminder after trying to watch a video stream in

This was with firefox not liking changing the size of mjpeg streams. The SVN version of Zoneminder has a fix for this.

I had a problem on Arch Linux/Zoneminder box where I couldn't see the fps. I had to enable PHP's sockets extension to get the fps indicator to work.

I had to uncomment the following line in my /etc/php/php.ini:
extension=sockets.so

Distributions may vary.

Yes, Zoneminder will release the disk space used to store the deleted events. Most likely you won't see the files deleted on the harddisk right away but they will get deleted eventually. The default delete mode in Zoneminder is fast delete mode ('OPT_FAST_DELETE' in the system options). In fast dele...

The events are stored in the zoneminder web folder. On Ubuntu systems, this is usually in /var/www/zm. To make sure Zoneminder doesn't fill up your harddisk, you need to enable the "PurgeWhenFull" filter. To do this you need to do the following: - Click on the 'Filters' button on the Zoneminder Cons...

I'm currently on Firefox 3.5. My zoneminder server is on an Ubuntu 8.10 Server Edition box.

It might be the browser is doing something funny. You can try clearing you're browser cache or try using a different web browser (SeaMonkey is a popular alternitave to firefox people use here.)
