Re: Iinstall of 1.26 gets 1.25?

The only odd thing about the system is that the OS is slightly customized for the Utilite Pro that it is running on, but I think the only difference is firmware related.

Iinstall of 1.26 gets 1.25?

I tried to follow these fresh install instructions and ended up with 1.25? http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.php/Ubuntu_Server_12.04_64-bit_with_Zoneminder_1.26.4_the_easy_way I also tried the 1.27 version of instructions. If I follow the process without adding the ppa, I end up with 1.26? Any he...

Re: Zoneminder send alarm events to XBMC

I completely agree with your comments and I plan to do more with an add-on similar to what yours does when I get some free time. I just wanted to give Dre something useful while he waits..:-) I still think it is possible to do the pop-up window with out any add-on though, but it might just be easier...

Re: Zoneminder send alarm events to XBMC

OK... I have something working... It isn't perfect, but it is a start. There are 2 major issues with this approach: 1 - You need to specify the script as an 'Execute command on all matches' script in your ZM filter configuration. This works, but it is not executed very quickly due to the way ZM hand...

Re: Zoneminder send alarm events to XBMC

What you need to do is pretty simple. You have two basic choices: - You can use the the "Filter" functionality to execute a script like the one that Azelphur provided to do what you want, but you will need to add functionality to grab the image that triggered the event. For that you can look at the ...

Re: ZM and phone notifications

Hi, ZM can do everything you have suggested already by using custom scripts that execute based on a filter. The only issue I have had with that method for audio alerts is that there is too much of a delay. I've written a perl deamon that watches the ZM logs for the start of an event and sends an aud...

Re: Time to next event = 1 seconds

Well... I feel better then! Running the commandline below after stopping ZM fixed it for me. mysqlcheck --all-databases --auto-repair -uzmuser -p Entered the ZM password at the prompt and it repaired the DB ... I also had to change my "Pre event image count" to be set lower than "Image buffer size" ...

Re: Time to next event = 1 seconds

Thank you very much for the link! It seems that you are suggestion that I repair the DB and I recall doing that from the cmd line at some point so I will give it a shot. It also seems from searching on Innodb, that the newer versions of ZM might not have this issue, but I wasn't clear on your post i...

Time to next event = 1 seconds

I've been using many versions of ZM over the years and it seems that this problem persists for me. When I try to play the video of an event I see a few frames and then a text message on a black frame that says, "Time to next event = 1 seconds". The playback then stops. I've found the line in zm_even...

Seems like there won't be any choice but to switch to libav?

Re: Debian package apparently abandoned

I really wish I could help, but builds are not my strong point. I'll start asking around though and see if I can pick at the issues.

I sure hope Peter or someone else can get a new debian package going for 1.25 soon.

Re: Zoneminder install DVD 1.24.x (3/7/2011)

I've tried many different installs over the years and this set of instructions with an install script for Ubuntu 10.10 has been by far the best and required the least amount of tweeks.

http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=16628

I'm happy to share my minor tweeks/fixes if you need any.
