Re: How to delete many events quickly?

"rm -rf *.jpg" won't do what you mean, you'd need something more like cd /where/your/events/live/the/camera/the/date find . -type f -iname "*.jpg" -delete This will blow away all .jpgs from "here" down without further prompting! Make sure you're blowing the correct bits away :) ZM Audit will then ha...

Re: Filter to delete events more than 24 hours old

Point of "Archived Status" -- *I* want to expire unarchived (boring) events after 7 days or when disk is getting full. Separate rule exists that says expire archived ones at 14 days and never mind the disk space -- "archived" ones are ones being converted to video for keeping, and get to stick aroun...

Re: Filter to delete events more than 24 hours old

This seems to happen to a lot of people :) I think "less than" means "before" and "-24 hours" is "in the future". You work out what the result there is. I found that I got this to work with :- "Archived Status" equal to "Unarchived Only" "and" "Date" "less than" "24 hours ago" (note the time syntax ...

Re: raspberry pi and linux box for zoneminder

Blue screen with time and date usually means you have the resolution incorrect: The resolution of the camera must match the width and height you have selected in Zoneminder to the exact pixel. Check the size of the image the camera is returning (e.g. using VLC or another app that shows you the strea...

Re: raspberry pi and linux box for zoneminder

IP Cameras usually connect directly to the network, not via USB, and no need for a Raspberry PI at all. If you mean a USB based webcam, then you would need the PI (or something similar) to convert it to a streaming web-based/IP camera. There are software solutions for this (local webcam to network-s...

Re: SOLVED: Zoneminder causes Ventech cameras to reboot randomly

I'm still wondering what the "extra" data that's being sent by the camera is... It doesn't seem to convert to anything ASCII, and I don't recognize the format.

Re: ZoneMinder 1.30.4 on Raspberry pi, 1G?

"apparently unable to communicate fast enough"

Remember the network interface on a Raspberry PI is effectively an on-board USB-connected device, which can bottleneck the network. So reducing the frame rate/resolution will help there, too.

Re: error opening events folder

If you're heading down that route -- don't just check the time, check the time ZONES being used are correct too!

An unexpected translation between UTC/Local/GMT/BST could really upset things :(

@zeeshop Glad problem is now solved, but @bbunge from a philosophical point of view, if there is no default unit, what [is/would have been] the meaning of "-10" :)

Re: I can't add a cameras

It is probably because "212.170.22.153:8080/mjpg/video.mjpg" is the raw video stream, which is what Zoneminder wants, and "212.170.22.1453:8080/view/viewer/...?id=22" is serving up an HTML page which surrounds the raw video stream, and Zoneminder has no idea what to do with all that HTML -- it is no...

Re: EasyN camera

But when you go to HTTP settings, you also have to fill in the port, right? Yes you absolutely do need to fill in the port number. Otherwise Zoneminder won't know what port, and (I guess) would have to assume port 80 - the standard for HTTP. You do not seem to have set a value for the port, at leas...

Re: EasyN camera

From looking at your working URL: Your settings don't seem to mention the port number -- does ZoneMinder know you're using port *81* which is not standard (80 would be default).
