How do I setup ZM to convert events to video automatically?

Post by Morantz » Sun Feb 19, 2012 8:02 pm

I'm needing to retain video from my cams for as long as possible.

I did a convert of one of my events from jpg's to swf and notices about an 6 to 1 space reduction. (97MB down to 17MB for the SWF file.)

Everything I've read is great for manually doing this, but I need something more automatic. Is this being done somewhere via an addon or somehow in ZM that I am just missing?

Any assistance appreciated!

read my post in user contributions : http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewto ... =9&t=18291
It's running almost 6 months now and makes an video from every event within the last 24 hours.
It has also an feature to make an drive map from YEAR/MONTH and deleting very old videos.
Zoneminder @Ubuntu 11 server, ZM 1.25.0 , FFMPEG, 4 Analoge cameras, 1.6ghz P4mobile, 2GB ram, 60GB-HDD.
I also have an (homeseer) domotica system up-and-running with touchscreens,light controllers,weather forecast etc.
