Sorry, I've got 5 of them working RTSP on 1.24.2/karmic, used the rtsp preset and they all worked fine. Mine allow anonymous viewers, so perhaps authentication's the issue.

I get that error whenever I run out of disk space, personally, might want to check that your purgewhenfull filter's running (and zmaudit).

There ya go. Pop that in your favorite job scheduler, and bookmark the file in your browser. That's assuming, of course, that /var/www is where your webserver's looking, if it's not, change appropriately.

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh
du -sh /var/www/events/* > /var/www/spaceused.txt

If anyone finds one reasonably priced, I wouldn't mind dropping a couple into some of the aquariums we have.

Sure about that? If that's the case, what are all those ZMA processes doing running on record only cameras?

Just use the Axis IP mpeg4 presets. I'm not sure what the differences are between them, but I've got a variety of models using the rtp/rtsp/http preset. Then just put in your ip.

h234 topic hijacking

Has anyone had any luck outputting H264? I kept hearing that it's the latest, greatest codec, makes much smaller output files, brings you breakfast in bed, etc. But after trying a variety of output options to ffmpeg, the best I could come up with something that had the same quality as the normal qui...

Do you have an nVidia card? I often get this viewing videos on one of my Karmic machines, opening nVidia-settings and closing it immediately fixes the problem. (Though we could be speaking of different things, personally, humans are all converted into smurfs/avatars on mine)

the Preload package

Anyone else using Preload? It theoretically keeps a cache in memory of frequently used programs & libraries, learning over time what's used the most frequently. It could be something else, but after a couple of weeks of preload, my system (core 2 quad, mix of 42 cams) went from an average load of 22...

picture of the card (usb 2, is it a card or a box)? Any results from an "ls -l /dev/video*" ? If not, try an "lsusb" and post the results.

Output h264 sorta solved

Found the magic button, needed to add "-vpre libx264-lossless_slow" to the path in zm's options. Obviously one would want to either edit said preset, or use a different one. I found mine in /usr/local/share/ffmpeg/ but your mileage may vary. Yeah, definitely need to edit. Using those settings on the...

Output h264 videos

Has anyone had success with outputting h264 videos instead of the usual formats? I'm under the impression that this might be a better option for dumping off old events onto backup storage, especially where modetect isn't being used. My ffmpeg's compiled with support for libx264, ffmpeg -formats list...

Exporting/backups

Might not be a horrible idea for exporting/backing up old events, though. I haven't found a backup script I'm happy with yet, might try cobbling one together that spits it out that way into a backup table, and has an import to take it back in/split it into folders. Would be a nice feature.

and wouldn't the other box contain a fan and be larger, therefore defeating your original goal?
