Thanks James, but I understand this. What I don't understand, is why it's not recommended to set the pre-event buffer almost as large as the images buffer (i.e. 120 image buffer, 119 pre-event buffer). Does it means the system not analyzes the pre-event frames? Phil, could you shed some light on thi...

Hardware for 15-20 analog cameras?

Hi. I have an acquittance who's looking to place DVR system in his warehouse, and I'm trying to convert him to ZM :). He has a large quantity of cameras planned (15-20), so I wonder what hardware he should use? Are there any good&cheap cards that can handle this and are supported by ZM? Thanks in ad...

Or you can edit zm_mpeg.cpp and change the line 290 from url_fclose(&ofc-pb) to url_fclose(ofc-pb).

I think this should be taken into account in the latest ZM.

Hi.

I meant, that with the settings of 120 images and 119 pre-event, it works ok (not 100% though). So before changing the settings, I would like to know if it actually will improve the matter.

increasing buffer count gives more space for zma, pre and post are number of frames that have to be saved for any given event and they are kept in buffer just for this one purpose, to save them when event triggers. default settings are 40 frames buffer, 10 frames prealarm and 10 frames postalarm, w...

I will increase the buffers to 120, with 119 pre-event (according to Phil recommendation in another thread) and 120 post-event, and let you know how it goes. and you will get exactly the same effect. leave buffers at 70 and decrease prealarm framecount to say 50, that might help you Can you please ...

Hi. I used the blend %ge specified on this Wiki page: http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.php/Reference_Image_Blend_Percentage_aka_Vapor_Trails "However, I have found that values greater than 10 work quite well. Indeed, I have used a value of 50, which shouldn't work, but is giving me acceptable re...

Have a network camera with 15-20 fps. The blend % was set according to an entry in the wiki, which said the % could be set as high as 50.

I actually thought that % can help with fast moving objects.

People keeping popping in and out - please help!

Hi. I'm trying to fix this for the past month, but still to no avail. The people in my recordings are keeping to constantly pop-in and out in the middle of the recordings. They appear out of no where, and disappear as well. My settings for the camera as follows (tuned during this month): Reference i...

Thanks for the advice, Phil.

Just still having people popping in and out of the recordings, and thinking to improve it by enlarging the pre/post number of frames.

Setting PreEvent to same value as the Image Buffer Size

Hi.

Is it safe to set the Pre Event number to the same value as the Image Buffer Size? Or it's better if it would be a bit below the Image Buffer Size?

For example, I have now the default size of 40 for the Image Buffer. Can I safely set the PreEvent to 40, or it should be below?

Thanks.

Hi. I glad this thread has caught some attention. I have couple of network cameras rather then local. Does it mean the shared memory is the source of the problem? And what should be checked then? Also, I think it's related to the analysis daemon, rather then to the capturing one, so this should be t...
