Re: Does ZM support timelapse?

Thanks. I've now got a bunch of jpegs but the folder structure at 1.32 is different too so the scripts fail.

Does ZM support timelapse?

Is there a way of producing timelapse video from Zoneminder? I read an interesting article by jacomoman ( https://forums.zoneminder.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6681&p=96337#p96337 ) who compiled a couple of scripts to select jpg images from the events directory and used these to compile an mpeg. As I un...

Gapless Event playback has gaps

When I was running ZM 1.30 I could play the events with "gapless event" set and it would appear a a continues video. Now that I have upgraded (rebuilt) to ZM 1.32 when I play the events with "gapless event2 set, each recording start/ends with a black screen gap so the smooth playback now flashes in ...

Re: What is the likely cause of pixellation?

Thanks bbunge and jwarfin.
It's a rainy day here today so it's a good time to rebuild the PC with Bionic Beaver and 1.32.3
I'll report back.

I mainly use the cameras for bird watching so I have the Axis trained on the bird table, 2 mini IP cameras in nestboxes and 1 x HikVision on the front door (my attempt at security). They are all ffmpeg. I tried libvlc bu...

Re: Cannot display events in Chrome

A quick update. It seems Bitdefender is the culprit. The presence of C:\Program Files\Bitdefender\Bitdefender Security\httpproxy.dll causes Zoneminder event playback to take several minutes to start. To work round this I booted into Safe Mode, removed the httpproxy.dll file and then rebooted. Zonemi...

What is the likely cause of pixellation?

I have 4 cameras connected to a 24 port PoE Gigbit switch. I regularly get pixellated event recordings and I can even sometimes see a splodge or two when viewing them live. Zoneminder is running from a freshly installed Ubuntu 18.10 build on a dedicated i5 PC with 16Gb RAM and 500Gb SSD. The recordi...

Re: Cannot display events in Chrome

Thanks. Checked the settings and all OK. However....I have found out what the cause is but not worked out what the solution is. I'm running Bitdefender Internet security and that's what's causing the problem. If I turn it off, Zoneminder still fails. If I uninstall Bitdefender then Zoneminder works ...

Re: Cannot display events in Chrome

Thanks for the suggestions.

Yes, used those instructions.
PATH_ZMS was already set to /zm/cgi-bin/nph-zms

I've just tried Firefox and that does the same, i.e. no event video plays.

Cannot display events in Chrome

I have an new installation of Zoneminder 1.30.4 on a new build of Ubuntu 18.10. I view live stream and video using zmNinja on my phone and that works fine so the events are all there and playable. When I try to view video using Chrome on my laptop and with WEB_H_CAN_STREAM=auto the status says "wait...
