Maybe if I get some time I can help out a little bit.

Also virtural box is great to use as a test systems.

If you need some dev systems let me know i have some unused systems i can give you access to. Just name the linux flavor I have 5mbs upload heres so I can host it well.

You're right, I don't know why I didn't think about using vbox.

Anyway, I think this skin is nearing a '1.0 release'. Or maybe a '0.1 release' :)

Still some problems

Post by oberg » Wed May 26, 2010 8:06 am

Hi, sorry for the long delay.

The skin now works better but not perfectly. I checked out a new version as of today. The first problem, one that makes it hard to try out all the features, is that all the links are pointing out of the virtual host....

I have, as i already mentioned, zoneminder installed under a virtual host called "http://www.xxx.yyy/zoneminder". The problem is thus that all the links are pointing to "http://www.xxx.yyy/".

Thanks for your effort. It looks really promising.

I thought I had this fixed. I'll look at the code some more and see what I can find!

Oberg,

Do me a favor. At the bottom of the views/header.php file are 5 lines (<li> elements). Replace them with the following and let me know if it helps. If you need help, let me know.

Code: Select all

      <li><a href="?view=console">Cameras</a></li>
      <li><a href="?view=events&page=1">Events</a></li>
      <li><a href="?view=admin">Admin.</a></li>
      <li><a href="?view=options">Options</a></li>
      <li><a href="?view=system">System</a></li>

Hello,
i've made an upgrade and now i cannot see events.
Is this possible, or it's just my configuration ?

Is it posssible to implement controls movements ?

thanks for your support.

You mean you checked out a newer git commit?
I was working on the Events page but I don't think I change anything that would prevent events from showing. You can navigate to the events page, but then no events are loaded? The page still works on my box.

      <li><a>Options</a></li>
      <li><a>System</a></li>
Ok, this helps a bit but there is still problems with some of the automatically generated links like the link to my camera in the main view. In the event view I get only jpegs to the event list but cannot play them. And there is a missing file: console.colorbox.js but this can be a problem with my repository, or did you delete it? (I dont have gitk installed om my server and it used to be there.)

I will try to configure zoneminder to be the root of another domain and see what is what. I'll also try to make a patch, if you want, for everyting that i find related to absolute references.

Oberg,

Thanks for that. If I come across any more such paths in the code I'll correct them.

Pushed out a bunch of commits that should allow for better scaling (and changing of) of the live view.

Made some big changes to the events view today. The short of it is that I have changed the ways that events play back.

Before, I was using a "jpeg movie" approach, hiding and unhiding every image that makes up any given event to create the appearance of a playing movie. This was very resource intensive, and most browsers did not like this.

The new way is that I am creating an ogg / theora video automatically for any event that you browse to, and then appending that to the page in a <video> tag (I've also changed the doctype to HTML5).

This means a couple things... The events page is much spiffier, the browser will use much less resources, and the skin now only works for browsers which support ogg / theora in the HTML5 <video> tag (which currently, I believe, is only Firefox).

Another requirement is that ffmpeg is built with the --enable-libtheora switch.

Still needs a lot of work, but I think that this is the best way to go.

Hello here I'm!

1)If i set "Authenticate user logins to ZoneMinder (?)" i dont see camera preview in the console screen.

2) When i open a "view full" it start at 1/2X but the combo indicates 4x

3) About the event date i think would be better to have like this
DATE
TIME
EVENT
DURATION

instead of

DATE - TIME
EVENT
DURATION

I'm a certified beta tester :)

I've downloaded lastest version of the skin.
