unable to watch downloaded videso ?

Post by david1234 »

Hello,
I running version 1.34.22
everything is working without any problems
I can see the video is created - I can wathc it online using the browser
when I mark the wanted video and press "Download video" it download me ~ 50Mb of mp4 file
but when I try to run it in vlc or any other video player - I get error video is not supported
I have also try to enter the video and press "Download MP4" - same file size ~ 50MB but get error when try to play it.

when I look in the file propeties there is no information in the "Details" tab :
Length is 00:00:00
Title: "Zoneminder Security Recording"
all other are empty

when I run "mediainfo' from the cmd I can see information and all seem to be correct there:

Code: Select all

mediainfo /media/usb/3/2022-08-08/18/18-video.mp4

You might try something else to play it. ffplay is generally good.

You should also stop using 1.34. It is very old.
