Re: Horrible Video Quality

I am seeing interlaced video despite running at 320x240 Hi, You were probably previously capturing using Video 4 Linux 1 (V4L1). When capturing at that resolution, it only captured 1 field (half picture - e.g. only odd or only even lines), so the image was progressive (had no interlacing artifacts)...

Re: 1.26.5 stuck in Alarm

Hi, Nothing was changed regarding motion detection between 1.26.4 and 1.26.5, however, a new option was added, called "alarm reference blend percentage". Its purpose is to allow fine tuning of how long an alarm lasts. It defaults to 3.125% and is probably the reason your alarms are getting "stuck". ...

Re: cmake error

Hi, It seems you are running cmake without specifying the source folder. It should be like this (don't forget the period at the end): cmake -C zm_conf.cmake . After that, make and then sudo make install. You might also need to update the symlinks for the images/ and events/ folder because make insta...

Re: ZoneMinder installation on Centos BlueOnyx 5108R

Hi,

On my CentOS 6.4 x86-64 box, the packages are named mysql-devel and openssl-devel.
Install those packages and you should be good to go!

Re: ZoneMinder installation on Centos BlueOnyx 5108R

Hi,

You don't need the OpenSSL options, cmake usually finds whatever it needs automatically.
Look for openssl-dev or openssl-devel package.

For mysqlclient, look for libmysqlclient-dev or mysqlclient-dev or libmysqlclient-devel
Its different from distro to another.

Re: ZoneMinder does not show camera view in zone editor

Hi, /usr/share/zoneminder/www typically contains static data. The events and images are typically stored in /var/lib/zoneminder/[events,images] DIR_IMAGES is typically pointing to "images" which is a symlink from /usr/share/zoneminder/www/images to /var/lib/zoneminder/images Same goes for DIR_EVENTS...

Make sure you have the -dev (or -devel) versions for those two.

Re: Horrible Video Quality

Hi, i'm trying (again) to locate the source of the problem without luck.

If you can confirm that the issue does not exist in v1.25.0, this will rule out the bttv driver as the source of the problem.

Re: How many cams realistically supported by Raspberry Pi?

I recommend going with an Intel Atom instead. I have the D525MW board, with 4GB ram and 2 hard drives (grouped together in LVM), running CentOS 6.4 64bit. This small, power efficient box can take a lot at it.

Re: Zoneminder Foscam Red image

Hi,

The errors you are receiving are because of a resolution mismatch. The camera's resolution is higher than the resolution you entered.

Re: New problem - camera goes red

The reason ZM does not quit right away if capture failed is because its the way it deals with small, temporary failures, such as signal loss.
A proper fix would be to correct the zm ffmpeg code: improve the error checking and add retry code.
Patches are always welcome.

Re: Horrible Video Quality

Those errors are because of a bug in 1.26.4 installation using cmake. Add -DENABLE_MMAP="yes" to your cmake command line.
