Re: New capture card to replace two old ones

So long story not so short, what recommendations does the community have for a 8/16 port PCI-E card? Currently run 12 mixed analog cameras at 4fps 480p. Make your life easy and ditch the PCI Cards. Use an IP Video Encoder. Modular, right tool for the job, no possibility of the kernel module becomin...

Re: Annke C800 4K

I wonder if I have the camera setup in a way that is to much for FFMPEG What platform? The motherboard must be fairly robust to handle 4K. Especially if you use modect/mocord. I have a 8 or 16 core server, and I haven't run it above 6FPS (on camera) yet on 1.34 (1.36 will be able to do better, when...

Re: Storage with error's

Post pictures of settings page, camera settings w/storage field, and also permissions on filesystem.

Is it ext4? There have been issues with other filesystems, including networked file systems.

Re: PurgeWhenFull Not Working After Update

According to the logs it was saying disk space was 95% used. Turned out it was measuring my root partition space but I had my events in a separate partition. Weird... Finally realised that even though I had created a new storage, zmfilter was using the ZM_DIR_EVENTS config variable (I think) to tes...

Re: Camera errors and nothing to see

Did you include the port number? RTSP is usually 554.

Also, you can test in vlc or ffmpeg before trying ZM. It's faster.

Re: programatically loading zoneminder backup on startup

Which img are you using, dlandon or the zm one?

Not sure what you mean by load backup. There is no backup involved here. It simply populates mariadb with the existing db on initialization.

Try updating the DB. https://wiki.zoneminder.com/MySQL # zmupdate.pl Probably due to a malformed install. Easiest way is to install using the guides at https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Debian https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Ubuntu Mint is not necessarily Debian. It's best to stick to what works. Review all l...

Re: Linked Monitors and OD <Best Practice> Discussion

I record on the high res, and mocord on the low res. I don't mess with linked monitors. Too many headaches reported in the forum. I don't trust software detection - I can't ever tune the zones good. So mocord is used.

Takes up more HDD space, but nothing is missed.

Re: Unable to get live feed from camera

Zoneminder install instructions / notes for RPI are at
https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Single_Board_Computers

For the 3B there is a premade image you can write to sd.

See also the debian guides.
https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Debian

Should probably follow latter or use img.

Re: programatically loading zoneminder backup on startup

Shouldn't (docker) volumes work? https://docs.docker.com/storage/volumes/ You'll have one for mariadb db folder in /var/lib/cache, and one for zoneminder wherever it is set to store videos. e.g. for maria db_for_zm: image: mysql:### volumes: - ./db_data:/var/lib/mysql restart: always environment: MY...

Re: Advice for high quality still images from h264 stream

"Location, Location, Location." A good placement for license plate camera would be right next to an entrance of a building (i.e. a parking garage). You want good lighting, and to be close to the car as possible. Think of how the highway automated toll cameras work. They are right above the road poin...

Re: Raspberry PI 4 Optimizations/Tuning

ZMA (modect / mocord) uses the most CPU, but RPI is also limited in FPS and resolution that it can handle. The RPI should be tweaked for gpu_mem settings in the bootloader. It's a usable platform for ZM as long as you understand what it can, and cannot do. See the wiki: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/S...

Re: Timeline shows just 1 frame / event

Related: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=29925

I wonder if adding 'savejpegs' will fix the timeline. With just x264 encode, I'm guessing it uses the one jpeg from where the movies are stored, but per previous post, maybe not.
