Sure, I specifically mean the camera has no fps set (or at least no user setting available - it's obviously limited internally) and ZM capture rate is set to 3fps (the PATH setting is not defining the framerate in this instance). Would this still mean 3fps on the network regardless of whether MJPEG ...

On a related note does the specified frame rate effect network traffic when using MJPEG as it does for static JPEGs? To put it another way, if we had the frame rate set at 3fps then regardless of the maximum frame rate of the camera we'd be putting 3fps across the wire if using static JPEGs. However...

I see. I used to use the mjpeg stream and did wonder what happened to the 'unused' frames... I wasn't even sure if they were being received by the server but from what you say about it being a PUSH service I guess they are...

5, Yes, but limit on the cam not the server With my setup (a Panasonic BL-C1 network cam) I grab in static JPEG mode and hence the framerate is decided by the server. Obviously the physical limits are dictated by the camera but I set the server to grab at 5fps and so that's what it grabs at (with t...

Oh I agree security is important (I don't recall saying/implying it wasn't!), but since when was HTTPS insecure? It's just as secure as your SSH tunnel, yet significantly easier and more accessible. The 'almost anywhere' caveat is not good enough for me - I need secure access everywhere (and have it...

I'd find such access too restrictive, don't you? I like to be able to access ZM from anywhere - PDAs, work PCs, Internet cafes etc, where SSH tunneling is usually unavailable. SSL and HTTP on the other hand are of course ubiquitous and is just as secure given the same underlying fundamental technolo...

No worries about the 'slow' follow-up! I'm all sorted now using Apache passwords and SSL so things have been overtaken by events, for me at least. Incidentally, whilst your fix re disabling directory listings may stop idle browsing it doesn't stop a would-be 'attacker' from guessing the full path UR...

Your network bandwidth shouldn't be an issue as far as individual image quality is concerned (only framerate) as the image you're getting is a fully-packaged JPEG hence the quality received is the quality sent. What format are you capturing with? nphMotionJPEG or SnapshotJPG? Try one over the other ...

I see from your other recent post that you're already using the &motion suffix to the source URL although I suspect that only affects the JPEG compression (i.e. 'motion' compresses a lot and quickly, 'clarity' compresses less and more slowly). The blur is therefore likely a hardware (lens/sensor) is...

Phil,

Publish yourself an SPT TXT record in your domain's DNS. I introduced one recently and the reduction of backscatter was nothing short of amazing - it practically eliminated it.

Changing monitor ID numbers?

Forgive me if this is a stupid question - perhaps I cannot see wood for the trees... Having experiemented with my ZM setup I'm now in a position of it up-and-running as I want it. However, given I have added/removed/changed various monitors during this time my ID numbers are now discontiguous i.e. t...

Whilst it sounds you're sorted now, why not just use https given it's the defacto SSL standard for http? It'd also allow you remote access from practically anywhere (without requiring an SSH client, not to mention one which supports tunneling).

I posted a similar request recently ( http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=8291 ) but unfortunately it didn't raise much interest. I shall wait with interest to see if this gets off the ground - I'm sure someone must be doing similar already?! Starting simple would be of benefit and brea...

In this particular case, given that the light is motion-activated, would it not be advantageous to allow the light-induced trigger given there is motion and hence it presumably warrants recording?
