Linked monitors question...

I've got two cameras looking at my driveway from different angles. What I'd like is to record from both cameras any time there is an alarm from one of them. I thought the solution to this was to link the monitors for the different angles. So LeftGarage would link to RightGarage, and vice versa. It s...

Re: decoding error on every keyframe

I had some trouble with this myself, but eventually googled and found the right thing to do.

The path should be the full url ... I.E. rtsp://192.168.1.249.....

note that some urls have the username and password before the host so:
rtsp://username:password@192.168.1.249....

Re: Is ZoneMinder still a CPU hog?

Okay, so I've got my setup working now, and the cpu usage is crazy high (5 cameras). Except for one camera, my cameras are all 1920x1080, color 24-bit rgb. They're ip with h264, so I'm using ffmpeg to process the rtsp streams. (Using "remote" resulting in a ton of errors in the logs about decoding p...

Re: Missing README from CentOS zmrepo rpm...

Fascinating. No, there were no issues when the rpm installed itself (No reboots, no errors), and yeah, I tried uninstalling and re-installing. You can see in my previous post that it reported "Complete!", and again running the rpm verify command comes up clean. Only when I add the extra -v for verbo...

Re: Missing README from CentOS zmrepo rpm...

The fact that the files show as "not installed" instead of "missing" suggests there's some type of rpm install check that is gracefully failing, correct? The rpm install script is deciding not to install those files for some reason.

Missing README from CentOS zmrepo rpm...

Per the dropdown instructions for CentOS 7 (https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/), I followed these instructions on a clean minimal install of CentOS 7: wget http://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/el/7/x86_64/zmrepo-7-6.el7.centos.noarch.rpm sudo yum install --nogpgcheck zmrepo-7-6.el7.centos.noarch.rpm sudo yum in...

Is ZoneMinder still a CPU hog?

Many years ago ZoneMinder would eat up 100% of the CPU when running. I think I remember the author stating this was by design, but I could be mistaken and it was just that the processor I was using at the time wasn't able to work hard enough to satisfy the needs of the program. Can anyone confirm wh...
