Re: Problems with cmake and ZM 1.28.1

problem solved for now - had to recompile ffmpeg .

Cmake install wasn't 'automatic' so far.
I had to manually add LD_LIBRARY_PATH /usr/local/lib to my env. which should not be the same - otherwise all the zm* binaries were not finding libav* library

Re: Working on an open source ZM client: ZmNinja

Yes, I recommend you develop your app to use the API rather than the xml skin. Recommend you use a zoneminder built from cmake, rather than autotools. That doesn't necessarily mean you have to build from source yourself. I don't recall if you have previously mentioned the distro you are using. Fedo...

Problems with cmake and ZM 1.28.1

Hi, I am trying to use cmake to compile Zoneminder (so I get access to authenticated APIs for my mobile app). This is the first time I am using Cmake I am on Ubuntu 14.04 and have checked out ZM via git clone https://github.com/ZoneMinder/ZoneMinder.git Followed by a cmake . -DZM_DB_USER=xxxx -DZM_D...

Re: Working on an open source ZM client: ZmNinja

I'm not sure how many people are still using autotools. Many have already switched over to cmake. In time, we will get rid of autotools altogether. We also plan to eventually depreciate the xml skin, in favor of Kyle's API. Do you recommend I switch to using APIs? I can reinstall ZM with make. I ha...

Re: Working on an open source ZM client: ZmNinja

Thank you. I did notice that thread of discussion. Given that it only gets installed via cmake, I'd suspect a majority of people won't be using it, which makes using it in my mobile app a non starter for now. I do look forward to it being a mainstream part of a new update to ZM - it would be pretty ...

Re: Control File for Foscam FI9821P

I made PTZ work on my 9831W - should be similar. http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.ph ... eras_-_PTZ

I did not work on it anymore than validating it moves around because I don't use PTZ inside ZM, so feel free to give it a whirl and fix errors

Re: AXIS Camera Bandwidth At Night

It seems Axis cameras allow for adding compression parameters in the video URL for RTSP which is pretty cool. http://custforum.axis.com/viewtopic.php?p=5079&sid=8bd9b9d69385cdadfced1bfdfcf1b1a6 So I'd probably either: a) Create two RTSP streams (one for night and one for day) in-camera and use run-s...

Re: AXIS Camera Bandwidth At Night

C) Almost...It's not really recording much, but it's just taking more bandwidth. I have a feeling it's something with the compression...The low light is causing more "noise" in the picture, which means it can't compress as efficiently. We do get some random recordings when someone drives through th...

Re: Second remote monitor throws socket errors on view

:lol: keeping posting - I had the same issue in my first few posts. So I had a similar issue when I started with ZM. First camera worked great, second one bonked just like yours with similar messages. The problem was I was running out of "mapped memory" (the space inside /var/run). Increasing shm do...

Re: Change monitor function within python script?

zmu can only be used to enable/disable a monitor, not change its mode. What you want is "run states" - set up two different "states" and configure your monitors in each state. Then switch states using zmpkg.pl <statename> in your script. http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.php/FAQ (search for run s...

Re: AXIS Camera Bandwidth At Night

I'll try and put some thoughts forward. But first, let's make sure I understand your predicament accurately. Would appreciate if you could ack/nack each point: a) You have 4 cameras set to "Nodect" (_not_ Modect) . That means ZM is not doing motion detection. You are using zmtrigger.pl to cause a re...

Re: Has anyone compied the techwell drivers on ubuntu 14.04

I have zero idea but I took a look anyway ;-) a) The code uses __dev* initializers - they are no longer used in later linux kernels To fix it, add this to tw68.h right at the top #define __devinit #define __devinitdata #define __devexit #define __devexitdata #define __devexit_p b) Next up, certain s...

Re: Problems Compiling Zoneminder 1.28.1 on Ubuntu 14.10

The `swr_is_initialized' is because that function is in swresample and it is not included. After doing ./configure, I had to manually add it in src/Makefile (see my notes above). adding it to extralibs did not work as the linker did not find it - it needs to be added at the end, not at the front Tha...
