TP-LINK Tapo C100 camera

Post by Luke88 » Sun Aug 16, 2020 4:10 pm

I added my TP-LINK tapo camera using manual settings and also onvif assistance(which successfully found the camera), but in any configuration I cannot get a picture on the web interface.
this is the error message from the log
'zmc -m 4' exited abnormally, exit status 255

I use a Raspberry Pi4 which can access the camera using ffmpeg on the command line.

I have a new installation of Zoneminder on the Pi, installed using these instructions ... om_ZM_Repo

Can anyone give me a clue on where to start fault finding?

on the raspberry pi4B I was not successful with 1920x1080 streams, try lowering the resolution (subStream) rtsp://admin:password@camera_IP:554/channel=1_stream=1.sdp?real_stream

and set resolution to the substream resolution
