["resolved"]Re: API problems/errors

Going to say that this is resolved. That is, there is NO API issue. I still am logging socket errors every time I play back event videos. Videos will play, sometimes stopping and sometimes not; always, though, generates a socket error in the logs. Doesn't matter what UI I use. I'm going to just igno...

Re: Unable to play back HD events in web UI

OK... What UI? I just discovered that zmNinja on my Android phone is not capable of playing back ZM events (MPEGs) even though a similar phone with same OS level can*: I'm breaking down and buying a newer phone. On this same phone video playback works in a web browser from ZM console if I manually s...

Re: Unable to play back HD events in web UI

What happens if you disable the sub-stream, can you then view the main/HD stream? With shm at 80+% I'm thinking that you're really taxing things. What's your total capture rate (MB/s) look like? My system (NUC7i5) is running four cameras at 1280x720 set to MODECT (capturing as MPEG) and shm is 16% w...

Sometimes one really has to dig into all the various log files in order to figure out where an issue is really originating.

Re: Another API issue..

Upgraded my [G4] phone to 8.1.0. Same issue. Going to just switch to using my wife's old G4+: the G4+'s dimensions are different, which will require me to re-do my custom docking station in my car (in-dash, using magnetic interface; cable is positioned using plastic weld)- maximum effort. Sigh. The ...

Re: Download mp4 corrupted

Have you tried checking the source MPG file(s) ON the server? If they're corrupted there then you can see it as a possible ZM Issue, otherwise it could be a network issue.

Re: Using multiple streams from one camera (and record ONLY from one stream)

I think that it's possible by setting MODECT on the monitor of the low res stream and then disabling the saving of jpeg and video under the Storage tab/settings. Then link your high res stream Monitor (set to NODECT) to the low res stream monitor (which will have the necessary storage settings under...

Re: Help with mysql crash on Ubuntu running zoneminder

You have to identify WHY the database server isn't starting. Most probable reason is that databases are corrupted. If so then there's no reason to uninstall anything: rather, it's about wiping out the database and rebuilding with a backup. When I was planning for my ZM system I had a UPS budgeted in...

Re: Restore config

There's nothing built-in to ZM that offers any such function (I'm thinking that it might be nice to have it as many people have encountered cases that they'd just like to have such configs, not a full DB blob). In general: Can accomplish via command line sql statement to select everything from the n...

No idea what your web server is. But, in general (and this isn't for 1.34, but has, I think, relevance):

Re: Using multiple streams from one camera (and record ONLY from one stream)

I did more pondering on this and I think you're noting what popped into my head as being a potential problem. The MODECT stream is instructed to buffer frames before and after an event. If I use this stream to trigger the stream for HD recording I believe that I couldn't capture the lead-in and lead...

Re: ZM is running - So what's next? Stoopid Noob questions

There's events and then there's events... There is the event data in the database and then there is the jpegs/mpegs. To answer your question: No, I do not back up the mpegs (storing as video, though there are event thumbnails as well). The reason is is that I care about the DATABASE. Why? Don't want...

Using multiple streams from one camera (and record ONLY from one stream)

Is it possible, with cameras that support multiple streams, to set up one stream to do MODECT (and serve live streams) and act as the trigger (linked monitor?) for the camera's higher resolution stream to be recorded, for that higher resolution stream to ONLY capture IF/WHEN the lower resolution str...

Re: What are all these errors in the log?

Just an FYI - hoping that any solution here on this broken pipe error will translate for same error I'm having with 1.34.15. I'm seeing the same broken pipe errors in my logs, but I'm running 1.34.15. I get them every time I do do a playback (event). The operation does work/finish/complete, though i...

No fancy backups either since in my case the data is not valuable enough to warrant the extra effort.
You're not backing up your database?
