Re: Can't add monitor, missing mootools

This occurred again. I reboot the zm server but the error remained.

I deleted the cache and any cookies of the webkit browser (in home folder). I also reboot the client computer. The error disappeared.

Re: Triple image / weird video issue

The Hikvision stream being sent is wrong, my guess. Try tweaking settings on the DVR. Disable motion detection, etc. Never set FPS limits on ZM unless it's local type. I've written up a troubleshooting guide here: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Finding_Camera_Stream_Paths Which covers some beginner to ...

Re: Triple image / weird video issue

What is the model of the Hikvision IP video encoder? What configuration settings did you use to connect to it in ZM?

Re: socket_sendto error intermittently. Feeds are up

Another option for refreshing is xdotool. I've documented that here:

I use surf (for <6 cameras only), but any browser could be used.

There are some addons for FF, but may require esr, possibly. (52)

Re: Bash script to manage cameras and zmtrigger

Similar to my script I wrote here https://forums.zoneminder.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=26909 except I use the API, not zmcntrol.pl. Can you explain how this will reset the cameras? Does this require a specific ZM version, because I don't see any code for --control=reset in /usr/bin/zmcontrol.pl in 1.29...

Re: Switch states on schedule?

See https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Cron for example cron jobs.

You have to run as www-data user to change run states. Also it should be /usr not usr.

Re: Zm 1.3 is loosing one WLAN camera

Dropouts were still occuring on one install, so I made the following script to disable, then re-enable any cameras that aren't responding to zmwatch.pl:

Disable / Enable Cameras that are not responding script

NOTE: Please read full post, and edits at the bottom. In my setup which uses Foscam 9805s and ZM 1.29, they occasionally drop out and do not return. Whether cameras dropout is brand dependent. I was able to get better results by extending the zmwatch timeout in options, but dropouts continued. I'm n...

Wiki 500 Internal Server Error

The wiki seems to be unable to accept edits. I made one edit, which saved, and then the next one did not work. All future edits return 500 internal server error message. Tested in multiple browsers.
