Re: Ip camera setup

what are those links? Looks like link spam. Another post by the same user accidentally included the same thing ... My First Camera: "Hi!

Re: Event directories dissapear

As part of the "everything" you tried, did you follow the advice to upgrade, as this is a known issue in the version you are using?

Re: Filter issue - Less than X time doesn't seem to work

It could be that "Less than" doesn't mean what you think it means. You're not the first to get caught. -60mins is "60 minutes ago". (Didn't ZM also support the literal "60 mins ago" ?) But "Less than" means a time value SMALLER THAN that, meaning over 60 minutes ago. Try "More than" (yes, that's cou...

Re: Directory Events magically disappeared!

So the question is what is web_php doing while ZM is not running at all? Although ZM is not "running" (by which you mean all capture processes are killed, all camera are freed up, no analysis occurs, no filing of stills or video, no database writing) -- the web interface is still operational. Are y...

Re: Understanding StartDate and EndDate Filters

Is there any functional difference between Start and End (date/Time)? The answer to that seems too obvious, but ... one filter option uses the START time of the event, and the other the END time of the event for filtering. As your events are probably shorter than a day each, then you'd see pretty m...

Re: Is My Camera Alive

... individual camera's are alive ... What kind of cameras (Network/IP Cameras, or analog connected to a capture card, or USB connected to a machine ...) ? That will affect how you go about checking them. For network cameras, I have a script (which also services all other networked devices), bounci...

Re: HD Analogue camera install

... Annke specific but Windows only app. There is an allocated IP for the camera/DVR set up of the type 192.xxx.x.xx. I'm assuming the DVR is open-standards enough to *also* provide you with a video stream/picture stream :- Then you need to look at the path and hostname you are using, and make sure...

Re: Mocord running all the time (filling my disk)

External HDDs are not a problem. But sometimes the choice of filesystem is. What filesystem is the external drive using? (FAT/NTFS/ext2-3-4/other?) Does it understand "permissions" at all? (This can be a problem, where your attempts to set the permissions don't actually do anything, and everything ...

Re: Help: Which brand is this ip camera?

The pixellation/smearing with FFMPEG and pre-compressed stream sources is a common thread on here (Search for smearing, tearing, pixellation ...) and is usually fixable by setting Zoneminder correctly, so don't give up just yet. The fact the stream looks good in VLC means it probably *is* good, but ...
