Re: Storage path

I assume when you say storage path, you mean where videos are saved, and not where zoneminder is installed.

Re: Installing zoneminder on Ubuntu 19.10 with existing nginx installation

Installing ZM on nginx, is more work if you are not comfortable with web servers. By default it runs apache. More info will be here on these forums.

The guides on the wiki cover Ubuntu: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Ubuntu

1.32.3 is the current stable release.

Re: Zoneminder ignores Section length

6 720p at 15fps each... That is a lot depending on how many cores, and how up to date the cpu is. You only have 4, and its a VM.

Lower FPS on all cameras to something like 5, get it stable, then increase fps afterwards. Use passthrough.

Re: Wansview W3 camera fresh install ZM 1.32

Looks like remote can't parse the stream. Try ffmpeg, or libvlc source types, or a different path.

Try Onvif, and the camera web portal - there might be multiple streams.

Some cameras can offer mjpeg, and rtsp streams. Others offer only rtsp streams.

Don't put localhost in hostname for cameras, unless the camera is running on the zm server.

Re: Zoneminder ignores Section length

What is make/model of camera? What CPU are you using? How much RAM? What is FPS and Resolution of camera?

Sounds like you are running out of memory/cpu or its a camera that isn't supported well.

Section length is 600 by default. That means the camera records 10 minutes at a time.

Re: Zoneminder works only after reboot for 20 secs

It's possible that the camera is not supported. Did you try libVLC after removing max FPS? If you can get it to work for 20 seconds, it's likely there is a way to get it to work 100%. It sounds like an issue of memory, or CPU not being able to keep up. However, it looks like ffmpeg doesn't like the ...

Re: Mocord running all the time (filling my disk)

Use a new hard drive, or reformat the existing one, is the easiest.

Re: Can't login after enable password to login!!

Don't follow random blog instructions for ZM. This author could've posted to the wiki, but he decided to copy it and post to his own wordpress. If he puts ads on his site, he could be making money off of bbhunge's hard work in maintaining the wiki. Not nice. Use the install guides in the wiki or the...

Re: Zoneminder works only after reboot for 20 secs

Is that maximum FPS setting on ZM? Blank that out. Max FPS on ZM can cause these types of issues. On the camera website, set it to 720p and say 5 FPS, and then try the stream path in ZM. Get it working, check the CPU load, then increase either resolution or FPS afterwards. Don't try to start with 2K...

Re: The requested address '/zm/api/' was not found on this server.

That is expected for the path /zm/api, as I noticed that recently. Or at least, it appears to be setup right.

Try adding authentication to the http request.
e.g.

Code: Select all

curl -XPOST -d "user=admin&pass=password" http://<ipaddress>/zm/api/host/getVersion.json
