Captured image does not match expected size, check width....

Post by morpheus106 » Tue Sep 03, 2013 7:43 am

I have installed zm 1.25 on my ubuntu 12.10 with a easyN cam f-m136, all ok.
But after some time that modect it happens that i find in the log this error:
'zmc -m 8' exited abnormally, exit status 255
Failed to capture image from monitor 8 (0/1)
Captured image does not match expected size, check width, height and colour depth

My configuration is that:
colors image remote: 24 bit
width (pixels): 320
height (pixels): 240

It's all right because the capture and monitor works well for some time (1 day) then it happens that my cam (in zm main page) turns red and I find those errors in the logs.
I must delete cam e reconfigured in zm or reboot ubuntu.
Can i resolve this problem? :(
Sorry for my english

Unfortuantely I also have the same (similar) issue running Zoneminder v1.25 on Ubuntu 13.10

I have not been able to see video ever. The log reads...

2013-11-07 12:46:14.208650 zmdc 2104 ERR 'zmc -m 2' exited abnormally, exit status 255 zmdc.pl
2013-11-07 12:46:14.200502 zmc_m2 2689 ERR Failed to capture image from monitor 2 (0/1) zmc.cpp 263
2013-11-07 12:46:14.194503 zmc_m2 2689 ERR Captured image does not match expected size, check width, height and colour depth zm_monitor.cpp 2561
2013-11-07 12:46:14.091034 zmc_m2 2689 INF Starting Capture zmc.cpp 191

I have tried setting all 3 resolutions supported by the camera (Instar in-3310)
640x480
320x240
160x120

The URL is simple: [user]:[password @ [ipaddress] / videostream.cgi?rate=11
which works fine in a browser window

Any insights would be appreciated.

Thanks
