Re: Solution for multi analog via USB?

Yes, I have some of those also but need a way to add analog cameras using USB. Mainly, it is to see if it can be done. The only four channel I have is a GXV3504 Grandstream but I'd like to see what could be used via one single USB port. I've tried connecting multiple local USB cams but that never wo...

Solution for multi analog via USB?

I've been looking for a way to connect analog cameras into my system which is a mini PC with no PCI slots. Therefore, I need something that can connect via USB. I've come across those cheap EasyCap devices but have read that they do only 1FPS which is useless. Wondering if others have had to deal wi...

Re: this just happened overnight

Hi, I like how you broke things down and how you 'fixed' the image :). How did you do that? I failed the post the resolution since I had tried a number of variations. At the time of the image, the camera was set to 1600x900 and so was ZM. However, now that I'm playing with it again, here is what I'v...

this just happened overnight

Without changing any settings, the night before, the output was fine. This morning, the image looks like this. 2019-03-16_085954.png I rebooted the server and still the same output. The camera is a very basic IP camera, reached by going to http://192.168.12.241:8080/?action=stream on a browser. Usin...

Old problem? 'Failed to set UVC probe control'

I've been trying to get a Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Orbit/Sphere AF working with ZM 1.32 (Ubuntu server 18.04) but keep seeing a problem. Looking around on the net, a lot, finds me a lot of old posts about problems relating to this error but nothing I've read has worked. A suggestion I read was to ins...

Re: Shadows set off motion

I'll have to read the wiki to figure out what you mean but it's more than I had :).

Shadows set off motion

I have a driveway that need modect function but no matter what I do, shadows from tree branches moving in the wind keep setting off the video recording. I'm pretty sure I know the answer to my question (smile) but I thought I'd ask anyhow in case others have experienced this. First, when setting the...

Linux based PTZ camera/s

I am searching and having trouble finding Linux based PTZ cameras. Specifically, I'm looking for one or more makes/models of consumer grade PTZ cameras between $40 and $100 that have fairly decent resolution and which run a Linux OS that I could access. I cannot use wireless cameras so am looking fo...

Re: What happened to 'Remote method'?

Nice, thank you. I'll give it another try at some point. Just learning as I go right now, using it for myself to see if it might be a good replacement for a number of installs that could become ZM.

Thanks again.

Re: What happened to 'Remote method'?

But that's just it, there was no RTSP in the list for source/remote unless I am looking at the wrong place? I went back to the old version since I could not figure this out.

Re: Camera is bright but dim viewed in ZM

Right, that's interesting and I've seen that sort of thing too. All I can think of is that for some reason, this camera is experiencing a weak video output. I connected it to another port and it did the same. I connected another camera to the same port that this dim camera is on and it was fine, nic...

What happened to 'Remote method'?

I got my introduction to ZM a couple of months ago when I built my first system, 1.29.0. I decided to build a new one today and went through the exact same process. I followed the same instruction as I have for my previous version for 16.x server; http://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/stable/installat...

Re: Camera is bright but dim viewed in ZM

Hi, thanks for the reply. Sorry for the long delay, I don't seem to be receiving the notifications. That was a good call so I tested that. There is an RCA splitter from from the camera output which goes into the grandstream then to a small LCD screen which I use for troubleshooting. I took that out ...

Re: Camera is bright but dim viewed in ZM

Sorry, I thought the fact that I mentioned the grandstream might give that info. The grandstream is an IP encoder. I'm not sure what the camera is, something that came with a ZModo package deal which I upgraded from cmos to ccd. Yes, analog, video only, connected to one of the gsx3504 video inputs. ...

Re: Grandstream GXV3504 - Source path?

I just happened to have purchased the Gransdtream for test using ZM but yes, I'll be looking at others.
I don't recall seeing anything but rtsp paths. Maybe I missed something.

In terms of the individual cameras, now it makes sense so I appreciate your input on this.

Thanks.
