Does anyone have the setting for ffmpeg that would make the video in a better quality?
When you watch a named event, or even convert the event to a video, it is about the same quality as watching it streaming.
But when I look at the mpgs that ffmpeg creates with the script, they a very pixelated, and the quality is very poor.
I am quite sure it is probably just a setting, I just wondered if anyone else had come up with some switches that would improve the quality.
Best Regards

Good day to you.

I am trying to use the script of post #5, but I seem to be having a few problems with it.

I am using the distribution found here: Zoneminder install DVD 1.24.x (3/7/2011)

Each time I run "sudo bash Dailyvid.sh 2" I get the follow.

you must supply the MonitorId as an argument "./makevideo 4" would make a video of all the previous days events and then put it in the first event for that day so it can be retrieved via the webinterface under the first event of the days video section

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
MUSER="zm"
MPASS="PASSWORD"
MHOST="localhost"
MDB="zm"
MYSQL="$(which mysql)"
MYSQLDUMP="$(which mysqldump)"
PATHTOEVENTS="/var/www/zm/events"
MonitorId="$1"
tmpdir="/tmp"

if [ "$1" == "$null" ]
  then
    echo You Must Specify The Monitor ID i.e \'$0 4\' would specify monitor id 4
    exit
fi

EVENTS="$($MYSQL -D$MDB -u$MUSER -p$MPASS -Bse 'select id from Events WHERE (StartTime BETWEEN DATE_SUB( CURDATE( ) ,INTERVAL 1 DAY ) AND CURDATE( )) AND (MonitorId = '$MonitorId') order by id asc')"
mkdir $tmpdir/$MonitorId
x=1
for event in ${EVENTS[@]}
do
        if [ $x -eq 1 ]
          then
            mysqldate="$($MYSQL -D$MDB -u$MUSER -p$MPASS -Bse 'select StartTime from Events WHERE id = '$event'')"
            date=`date +%b%d-%Y --date="$mysqldate"`
            firstevent="$event"
            echo Making Images and Placing them in $tmpdir/$MonitorId .... Please Be Patient this could take a while.
        fi
          for i in $(ls -r -t $PATHTOEVENTS/$MonitorId/$event/*jpg)
          do counter=$(printf %06d $x)
            ln -s "$i" $tmpdir/$MonitorId/img"$counter".jpg
            x=$(($x+1))
          done
done

ffmpeg -f image2 -i $tmpdir/$MonitorId/img%06d.jpg $PATHTOEVENTS/$MonitorId/$firstevent/$date-Daily.mpg

rm -rf $tmpdir/$MonitorId
echo Video Created at $PATHTOEVENTS/$MonitorId/$firstevent/$date-Daily.mpg
Thanks for the script. The only problem is with events longer than 1000 frames. These events was with jumping frames. I solve this problem by replacing this line:

Code: Select all

          for i in $(ls -r -t $PATHTOEVENTS/$MonitorId/$event/*jpg)
with this:

Code: Select all

          for i in $(ls $PATHTOEVENTS/$MonitorId/$event/????capture.jpg; ls $PATHTOEVENTS/$MonitorId/$event/?????capture.jpg)
Since this is my first post i also want to thank to the whole team of developers for making this valuable software. I feel safer running it in my property. Wish you all best and keep up the good work!

Regards,
Konstantin

Were you able to fix your script for this 1000+ frame issue?

If you go to http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewto ... 1&start=15 you will see I fixed the issue and did some alterations on the script
