Did a repair on all the tables, apparently it fixed a lot of problems in events, hopefully this'll do the trick, but I won't know until it starts eating events again.

Losing events, zmaudit acting up

So, coming back after a day off, I find my server has 100% of disc space occupied, and the number of events is neglible. (had 700 or so per camera a couple of days ago.) Ubuntu 9.10, compiled locally, 1.24.2, also getting strange errors manually running zmaudit.pl, specifically sudo zmaudit.pl [sudo...

SSH into it (or sit at console) and run htop, then sit around and wait for it to lock up. Before it does so, you should be able to see whatever's eating too much memory or cpu.

Umm. I'll try?

Where's your ZoneMinder box, and where's the computer you want to be able to access it from?

I'd been thinking along these lines for a while, but one of the reasons I never pursued it was the distance capability of USB cameras, and the vast distances apart my cameras are. (13.5 story square city block). Do you have computers nearby the usb cams, or are you using some sort of extension? Any ...

This requires more explanation than kingofkya mentioned or I'll go into, but mpeg4 is a container format, the codecs used inside of it vary. H.264 is essentially a flavor of mpeg4, if that makes any sense. It's a newer flavor, so it may or may not provide better results. I've heard it's good for sma...

"Any computer" is a little vague, but with the correct network setup, yes. Computers on your own network should be able to get to it with your usual path but ip address changed from localhost or 127.0.0.1 to the server's actual ip. Accessing it outside your network involves the ZM machine to have ei...

Hangs with, or is that avi file getting bigger and bigger? Try ffplay instead of ffmpeg, then you can see what it's seeing.

After trying for a month, you didn't manage to read through forums and notice that people asking for help (and getting it) generally do things such as providing details? So far we know you have a webcam.

Have you tried ctrl-mousewheel? Not sure if you're looking for a permanent setting, but that will get you by per-session in FF3+, Chrome, and probably varying versions of IE.

Ffmpeg compile with extra encoders/decoders

So if you check the help, there's a bajillion encoders and decoders listed that one can enable. Annoyingly, there's not an --enable-all-decoders option, so I ended up with a ridiculously long config line when I added all of them. (Why not was roughly the reasoning.) Successfully compiled, zoneminder...

What variety of cameras are they? You probably want something with an auto-iris, either built in or on the lens.

Distance is probably key. I've got an ACTi that makes a beautiful image, but it's only covering roughly 20 feet from the camera. Specs claim 15 meters. <$400
