Re: Horrible Video Quality

I believe it's an issue with the bttv driver. I tried very hard to debug this but failed. I don't think it's a zoneminder issue.

Re: Horrible Video Quality

I have the same issue with analog cameras. Are you using the bttv driver?

Re: Shared memory problem OpenSuse 12.3

Hi, This is a bug that sadly was only fixed after ZM 1.26.4 was released. The workaround for ZM 1.26.4 is indeed like you said: -DENABLE_MMAP=yes ZM 1.26.4 was the first version to ship with cmake (does not replace autotools) so its not perfect. I have done many fixes and improvements since then whi...

Re: Signal 11 - segmentation fault errors - backtrace includ

Hi, Its because of the sign mess we had lately. We were attempting to remove all sign comparison warnings during compilation, so we changed the sign of many variables and it seems we messed up few things. I fixed it today: https://github.com/ZoneMinder/ZoneMinder/commit/88f2bc6b630194b8c688ea5793370...

Hi, FFMPEG has issues with RTSP\RTP over UDP (the way it should be), so you all need to add ?tcp to the end of path to force it to use TCP http://ffmpeg.org/pipermail/libav-user/2011-July/000405.html If building ffmpeg from source, you can fix it like described here (by undefining HAVE_PTHREADS): ht...

Re: problem after upgrade to 1.26.4

Hi,

Execute the SQL statements below to fix this manually:

Code: Select all

ALTER TABLE `Monitors` ADD `Colours` TINYINT UNSIGNED NOT NULL DEFAULT '1' AFTER `Height`;
ALTER TABLE `Monitors` ADD `Deinterlacing` INT UNSIGNED NOT NULL DEFAULT '0' AFTER `Orientation`

Re: Compile failure

Hi, The parameter in the CPPFLAGS is not needed anymore, it's included internally. For the ffmpeg prefix, you can use export CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH="/usr/local/share/ffmpeg" but sadly this is broken on v1.26.4, you need ZoneMinder from git for this to work: https://github.com/ZoneMinder/ZoneMinder/tarbal...

Re: Compile failure

Hi, This is because zm includes its own version of round() for old systems that do not have the round() function. It seems the detection fails to see you already have round() and a conflict arises. You can work around it by adding -DHAVE_DECL_ROUND=1 to your cmake command line. I will try to get thi...

Haven't investigated yet but i think the problem is that read() syscall returns -1 because it was interrupted and then zm tries to read -1 bytes and boom..

Re: Zoneminder with 50 ip cams?

I am working on adding a way to maintain fps for source types that we can't control the stream speed (IP cameras), but it might take some time. For source types that we are the ones initiating the capture (e.g. USB and analog cameras), we are the ones controlling the fps because we are capturing onl...
