ZmNinja recently stopped working after android update (Chrome issue)

(edited by asker - subject line changed to state its a Chrome issue after update, so people can come here if they face the same problem) Judging by ZmNinja's FAQ I fear this issue may quite rightly be met by the developer with thoughts of 'here we go again!' so I thought I'd post here to share what...

Re: Add temperature to image

If I'm not mistaken, I have recently seen mention of a camera that has a built in temp sensor, and can OSD the reading for you. I can't tell you which one, alas. For the sake of the archives, the Wansview K1 is one such camera (also includes humidity) however mine always reads around 1C too high. I...

Re: Wansview W2 blurry image/pixelation

To follow up on my query I applied the patch at the marc.merlins.org site and this enabled me to use a snapshot JPEG type approach. Also got RTSP working. Rather than post the details here for others I'll look at writing a wiki page so it's all in one place.

It looks like permissions issue - check that /tmp/zm is owned by www-data.

Apologies I didn't spot that it was the MySQL root user. Disregard my suggestion! (or simplify the root password if acceptable from a security perspective).

You could always change the password ('zmpass') to something that satisfies the minimum requirements listed. You will have to make sure it is reflected in /etc/zm.conf too.

Re: Ubuntu 16.04 Release with Zoneminder 1.29.0

You might need to enable it:

Code: Select all

sudo a2enmod php

(Might need to check the 'php' descriptor - I'm not at my machine right now to check the exact name)

Re: Ubuntu 16.04 Release with Zoneminder 1.29.0

You can get rid of the [mysql] section as it is invalid. You also haven't followed the instructions about which file to edit.

(And the topic should remain open to others - it wasn't created just for you!)
