Re: Problems with user authentication

Hi, there are various things that could be happening. The key issue is that authentication failed, so ZMS does not stream. Some initial things for you to respond to: 1. Which version of ZM and how did you install it? Package or source? 2. Please post the contents of /etc/zm/apache.conf 3. I assume y...

Thanks PacoLM.
If it is the second option for you, how about the URL when you watch live stream of a monitor?
does it have /zm in it or is it just server.com:port/cgi-bin/etc

Re: Working on an open source ZM client: ZmNinja

Awesome news :ZM folks are trying their best to incorporate the APIs into release 1.29.
No guarantees that they will, but if it does, this app can go mainstream and everyone can use it.

Re: Terminating, last frame sent time 1430120263.528179 secs

Season 1 episode 9. Due to the high load on the server caused by libvlc I resolved to get ffmpeg working (it simply didn't). Given that *buntu 14 uses libav I thought I'd look into that. Checked OPT_FFMPEG and set PATH_FFMPEG to /usr/bin/avconv. Set remote method to RTP/RTSP because I heard that en...

Re: Terminating, last frame sent time 1430120263.528179 secs

Just out of curiosity, where does that 'sent time' come from? is it using the server time, or is it getting it from the camera somehow? https://github.com/ZoneMinder/ZoneMinder/blob/5add4422f20d30ac8df03cc0e0c451e344662752/src/zm_monitor.cpp#L4158 Based on the code, zm_monitor keeps a track of the ...

Re: local video file

That's a nice idea mikb. If you really want to test it with a VIDEO file (for testing motion detection on a pre-recorded, predictable file), as it appears you might be doing, try this :- I got an "mjpeg" stream from my camera into a file, and although it wasn't viewable in XINE/VLC, I used ffmpeg -r...

Re: Fallback Strategy on network failure

Hi, I am not quite sure what you mean. Do you mean the network fails between zone minder and the camera? If zone minder can't reach the camera, it won't be able to record the events in the first place, so maybe I am misunderstanding your question. There is an option called MPEG_TIMED_FRAMES on the o...

Glad you got ZM working. On zones and false alarms, I struggled quite a bit at the start.

d777,

Would you mind posting detailed logs when you have OPT_AUTH enabled and trying to stream?

Re: Terminating, last frame sent time 1430120263.528179 secs

Sounds good - looks like you have localized your problem to the optimal FPS setting in the camera and have found one. The only thing is this: if you leave the FPS blank in ZM and that camera goes down, your server CPU will turn into that hovercraft trying to find it -- and there is where the FPS on ...

Re: *s.sock missing when logged in as user from ZM front end

d777, yes,my guess is the problem may be around authredirects. However, it seems ZM uses its own auth - I've been looking at their code and does not use Apache auth. No,I don't use any reverse proxies - I just have a straight ddns mapping to my IP address. I think you may get more insight if knniggg...

Re: *s.sock missing when logged in as user from ZM front end

b) cmake ./make/make install c)no post config. If you did cmake/make/make install you must have done post config to set up Apache, set up the DB. etc. To the best of my knowledge cmake does not auto set up the environment, only package install does (I did cmake install last night on a Ubuntu machin...
