Re: HankVision Megapixel WIP6001

Did you try the two video paths from the end of the 2nd post in the first link? You can try VLC gui or ffmpeg from command line first to get resolution, and verify the stream works. Can also try port 8080, as the post mentions. You might need to poke around the GUI to change settings, if the ports a...

Re: HankVision Megapixel WIP6001

Hankvision looks to be a blatant ripoff of the successful Hikvision. I don't know why anyone would purchase a camera like this. Hikvision is ok, but Hankvision... A quick web search brings up these results on Hankvision: https://ipcamtalk.com/threads/hankvision-30x-ptz-4mp-streams.23961/ https://ipc...

Re: Battery operated Cameras with Solar Charger Backup

The reolink battery powered cameras were just reported in this thread to not work with 3rd party NVRs (i.e. not Onvif compliant).

Re: RSTP connection issues

You should not have any Max FPS settings, remove that. Chromium should work OK if it's up to date. Flash Raspbian Buster on the RPI and use 1.32.3 in the Raspbian repos. But you should first lower the resolution and FPS of the cameras. 1920x1080 on an RPI is too high to start with. With the RPI, you...

Re: ZoneMinder as a could DVR for remote standalone IP cameras

Basically, what you want is a 4G connected IP camera, with a remote ZM server somewhere recording that camera, right? It's possible. You either open the camera up to the WAN, or setup an RPI with a VPN alongside the camera. But this will be expensive, as cell bandwidth isn't usually cheap. I wouldn'...

Re: RSTP connection issues

Look at post #2 again. Camera Resolution in VLC must be the same in ZM. You have 1920x1080 in VLC, and 640x480 in ZM.

The only other thing you 'might' try is libVLC, but first get the resolution right. FFMPEG will probably work.

Re: only 1 camera work at time on raspbian buster

It seems like the df "usage" indicates one the the zm maps isn't there after all ... (132M vs 270M) I'm going to guess ZM is trying to initialize the mmap, and then is unable to keep up with the camera feed, at which point it balks, and the mmap is constantly being re-made. He might've just caught ...

Re: only 1 camera work at time on raspbian buster

Try lowering the FPS at the camera, the resolution, and / or use record instead of Mocord or Modect so that no analysis is done. You can also disable all logging on ZM (Options - Logging), and anything else that might use up CPU. Reference: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Single_Board_Computers You will...

Re: ZM 1.33 with Docker Complete Wipe

First off, I recommend docker-compose. Second, there is an official ZM docker in the git (utils?), no need to build from scratch. You might have to edit it for 1.33, but I think it's in the PPA, so doable. Are you sure it's actually being deleted? Some basic commands would suit you. docker ps - list...

Re: CPU / GPU requirements

It's not just RAM but CPU as well. You need both. No free lunch. Look at the RPI. The RPI4 and RPI3 are about comparable in performance with ZM. It doesn't matter much even if you add the 4GB of RAM for RPI4, in my experience. CPU is the bottleneck. GPU is not used with ZM. There is no such thing as...

Re: GV800 16 CH shows the same image over all channels

You are better off using an IP Video Encoder instead of bttv cards.

See: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Hardware_Co ... eo_Encoder

Used ones can be obtained for reasonable prices.

Re: Basic camera/zm settings (I read all the FAQ's)

For H264 encoding and passthrough, read this to get an understanding. You should use passthrough if possible for a performance gain. Encode is for MJPEG cameras, typically. https://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/stable/userguide/definemonitor.html#storage-tab For the zones configuration, this is the l...

Re: Problem adding storage

I don't know how many cameras you have or how often you'll be recording... I came here to search around for settings and tweaks because my ZM is recording almost constantly and I'm filling up discs like crazy. Orders of magnitude, I have two cameras and I'm recording a couple hundred gigs a day. I ...
