Changing scale - image disappears

Post by pjhealy » Mon Jan 18, 2010 3:38 pm


I've got ZM running reliably and all seems well. However, when I click on a camera and try to change it's scale, the image appears briefly and then disappears.

This manifests itself in Firefox 3.5.x - IE works fine.

Has anyone else come across this?

Thanks - Pat

Any ideas?

This was with firefox not liking changing the size of mjpeg streams. The SVN version of Zoneminder has a fix for this.

Thank you.
In file skins/classic/views/js/event.js

Inside function changeScale(), find this line and comment it out by placing // before it.
Here, change this:
streamScale( scale );

// This is command being sent to the streamer (zms) to change the resolution, which should save bandwidth when decreasing the size, but can kill streams with certain browsers. This line is already commented out for live streams, but not for events, and thats why we are commenting it out.
// streamScale( scale );
