Capture still images from ZM

Post by sebr » Sun Dec 16, 2018 7:09 pm

I am looking for a way to capture stills from my IP cameras that are connected to ZM. Unfortunately they only support rtsp stream but I need an updated (ever 10 seconds) jpeg image to be available on the webserver that also zm runs on.
I guess there is no built-in function to achieve this. How to do it in an easy way?

ZM should be able to serve the latest image (I assume jpg, jpeg) from the monitor. See this post:

You can grab the latest image with the following command:

Code: Select all

zmu -m 1 -i -U username -P password
Run it every 90 seconds (or however often you want) and store the image on a web server so you can grab it whenever you want.
Note that -m is the flag for Monitor #
