PHP script to export zoneminder movies with Front End

I updated an older script to work with zoneminder 1.34 passthrough to export videos between start and stop times.

Since I exclusively use mocord, there is an "Alarm" option which will only export the alarms in a continuous videos between the start and stop times. Great to see 24 hours of accelerated alarms in a few minutes of video. The "All" option will export a continuous video between a start and stop time. Other ffmpeg processing options are available (speed, fps, size etc.) for time lapse etc.

The script can be used from the command line or with a html front end

I am wondering if there are any updates, this script seems to have stopped working with v1.36.5

The script has not been updated for 1.36 yet. I'm still running ZM 1.34.
I know there are some changes in the database from 1.34 to 1.36 (fixed I think) but she SQL queries in the script stopped working under 1.36.
If anyone has SQL experience I could point them to the SQL query which is the problem.

I have not had time to upgrade yet but anticipate doing so in the fall.
