Amcrest IP5M isn't beeing seen by ZoneMinder

Post by gambit » Sat Nov 21, 2020 8:42 pm

I just installed ZoneMinder and purchased my first IP camera an Amcrest IP5M-T1179EW-28MM, Amazon link is here: ... UTF8&psc=1

Had no problems connecting it to my network and viewing camera output from my iPhone and my PC. I can also ping the camera from my ZoneMinder Linux console. I also confirmed from Amcrest Survellance Pro on my PC that the RTSP port is 554.

Based upon what I'm seeing at this link:
viewtopic.php?f=10&t=30024&p=117906&hil ... st#p117906

and also this link:

It looks like I should use the following settings when adding the device:

Source Type: Ffmpeg
Function: Mocord
Source Path: rtsp://[username]:[password]@[deviceIP]:554/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=0
Method: TCP
Target colorspace: 32 bit colour
Capture Resoloution (pixels): 2592, 1944, 2592X1944 5MP

When I click save the device shows in the ZoneMinder console with Mocord / Not Running / 0B/s in the Function column.

Any help would be appreciated!

Did you ever get your camera to work with zm? I am looking at purchasing a few of these for my home.
