Re: Some easy tips on improving ZM 1.28.x performance

Speaking of performance, everyone should spend some time tweaking the performance of their mysql server. It is guaranteed to noticeably decrease the response time of the web ui. The two most important things you can do is to enable the query cache (it is off by default) and set up an innodb buffer ...

Using Foscam inbuilt Motion Detection instead of ZM: HOWTO

I've been benchmarking ZM's software motion detection with the built in Foscam Motion detection in the camera. In general, I've found Foscam's own detection to be much more reliable. This code makes ZM use Foscam HD inbuilt HW motion detection instead of Zoneminder's SW motion detection. This result...

Re: Couple of bugs with zmtrigger.pl

Problem solved. I noticed the script has a cache timeout, so I did a reload one time when the monitor is not found to make sure. Works great.

Couple of bugs with zmtrigger.pl

Hi, I have set up zmtrigger to use the HW motion detection algorithm of my foscam cameras instead of ZM doing SW detection. It's working very well, but I have encountered the following bugs: a) zmtrigger.pl randomly exits with a memory map error - I read other threads and for now, I've fixed it by s...

Re: New Skin Available - Feedback wanted

Did a quick test - looks like 1.28 has changed the DB structure - various DB queries fail with this skin. But I love the concept of one window showing it all. Hope you decide to make it work on 1.28 :-)

BTW any way you can apply the flat design styling to your CSS?

Re: New Skin Available - Feedback wanted

arc, have you tested this skin on 1.28.1? I'd be happy to try myself, but curious if you know if it works already.

Re: Updating ZM 1.28 to use turbo-jpeg *after* it is set up

Oh! *sheepish-grin*. I just finished recompiling source :lol: Looks like I wasted my time I never knew about apt-file --> I just installed it and ran the same command. Based on reading it's help, it seems to be saying "libjpeg.so.8.0.2" is included in "libjpeg-turbo8" and no other package for ubuntu...

Re: Updating ZM 1.28 to use turbo-jpeg *after* it is set up

Okay, it looks like zmc/zma is still using libjpeg and not turbo. This is after I a) added export LD_LIBRARY_PATH to /etc/init.d/zoneminder to point to turbo libs b) did an apt-get uninstall zoneminder followed by an apt-get install zoneminder Do I need to remove the zone minder package and compile ...

Re: ZoneMinder - creating a video every hour

Yes, I have seen the timeline function. Thanks - I've figured out how to create automatic video archives but will likely just stick with the images. generating videos from images is quite a CPU intensive operation especially since I am running ZM on a low end machine.

I've followed instructions on how to store the images and events on my NAS - everything works fine. I've set up filters to purge the recordings every 5 days. I also set up pan c...
