Recoding ok but no playback

Post by novazion » Wed Jun 30, 2010 5:03 pm


I tried to install Zoneminder on an Ubuntu Server 10 (lastest) 64 bit version.

Modect works as i got somme events and some images in the hierarchy directories.

However, I can't see any live from the cameras and can't playback the events.
The timeline or list view works well, but if i click on an event he's not displayed.
In an evnt window if I click on stills or frames Zoneminder says that no frames are found (the url is not "normal" : http://xxxxx:xxxx/zm/?view=frames&eid=undefined)

Did someone got the same problem?
Or do you have any idea where I could try to search for a start?

It might be a problem with the file path to where the zoneminder events are stored. Or a permission problem with the event folder.

Check the zoneminder logs (usually in /tmp) and you're system logs (/var/log) for any errors regarding zoneminder after trying to watch a video stream in

Ok thanks for that.

in fact that was the /cgi-bin/ directory configuartion which was unproperly configured. Fixed taht and that's ok for the streaming part.

Regarding the frames and video generating problems, it seems to be linked to chrome browser, as in IE and FF I don't have such problems.
But I don't remenber having those problems with a 32 BIT install.
If someone have an idea...
