MP4 playback issues

Post by moorsey » Wed Sep 19, 2018 3:33 pm

Anyone having problems playing back the new MP4 videos created by Zoneminder?

Same if I either take the MP4 direct from the storage folder, or run an export from the interface (same file I guess)

Opening in VLC, it will not play, but will update the image if I manually seek through the file, but then just stays on that frame.

Seems to play OK in Windows Media Player, which is concerning!!

Odd, is it to do with the way Zoneminder forms the MP4 file.

Logs show the following in VLC

Guess this error depends on video size, FPS etc. One of my cameras, 640x480 @5FPS plays fine, but my others, 1280x960@8FPS do not play at all in VLC

All plays fine in the browser, which is the main thing I guess
