Re: <Solved> PurgeWhenFull won´t purge or purge too much on Storagearea

Re: <Solved> PurgeWhenFull won´t purge or purge too much on Storagearea

In 1.32+ I believe you have to add to the existing purge when full filter

Code: Select all

AND "storage area" equal to <storage area name>
This is probably only when you are using a storage area different from the default.

Re: DVR Build

Can you expand a little bit on what you mean by "You need adapters, and it looks poor"? I'm not sure what you mean there. (??) Also, instead of 12v, I'm guessing you're saying to use 48v? I can't tell what voltage the switch I mentioned uses- it doesn't say anything about it as far as I can see. A ...

Re: Distorted video over time

You shouldn't have Max FPS set on ZM for FFMPEG, generally. See the help icon next to it. Leave that blank. If that doesn't solve it, search around these forums. Some people have had screen tearing and artifacts solved with a variety of solution such as: Force TCP or UDP mode on camera. Lower camera...

Re: DVR Build

There are vendors selling used rack servers on ebay with 1 or 3-year warranties for $300-500. That's what I do. Then there's no need to build anything up. It also works good with 1.32+ as you can utilize the docks for multiple storage areas. I have an R710 with a 10TB HDD* in it, and I'm going to th...

Re: Need help configuring ZM so I can save the video in the way I want

Currently I have three of my cameras in Modect mode, and one in Mocord mode. Neither seems to give me what I'm looking for, and I'm wondering if anyone has a combination of settings here that will accomplish the following: Storing 1 fps footage of a monitor all the time (24/7) During an alarm, savi...

Re: Genbolt 1080p outdoor camera.

A few notes about your setup. You can start off with 1.30.4 which is the old stable, but if you want 1.32+ you might want to consider the Ubuntu 19.04 wiki install here, which gives the benefit of MP4 encoding. The encoding will offer compression and long term storage. Something to think about down ...

Re: Connecting Wyze V2 to Zoneminder

Hopefully Wyze will be kind enough as to provide you with the camera stream paths, but after that, you may have to use wireshark, and do some digging. Any good camera will include the stream paths in the User Manual, or they will be in the ispy website. See: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Finding_Camer...

Would you be so kind to write me a hint, which options in Kernel config should be set off regarding above you mention in a code.
Thanks for pointing that out. I've updated the post.

Disabling Spectre and Meltdown mitigations (speculative execution)

Since the speculative execution CPU vulnerabilities have come about, all fixes and mitigations have come at a cost to CPU intensive applications such as Zoneminder. Basically, all PCs became slower in 2018. This is a significant loss for Zoneminder and we should document ways to disable these fixes,...

Re: Which stream is more efficient?

I've found that the best performance is with Nodect, and external motion detection. There is a downside, however, that you have to setup the external motion detection.

In this case, you'd have the 3MP stream, and then Nodect on it.

Re: Can not view RTSP camera stream

4K on a raspberry pi 3, I don't think is ever going to be possible. Unless you slow down the frame rate dramatically (probably <1FPS). I've done some benchmarking (link: https://forums.zoneminder.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=27938) You will need to lower the resolution at the camera or use a lower resolu...

Re: Event duration while playing back is very long

Check the logs.

Does JPEG frame saving work? the library mp4v2 is being phased out, so this has broken H264 encoding on Debian 9, though there is a guide in the wiki for it on Ubuntu 19.04
