viewing multiple cams from multiple servers

Post by Brushpopper » Wed Oct 07, 2015 1:22 am

Ok, guys, maybe I am little convoluted here but I am running 2 zm servers, my main one is using ubuntu 12.o4 with ZM 1.28.1 and 6 cameras, all of them ps3 eye cameras... my secondary server is running ubuntu 14.04 with ZM 1.28.2 and 4 cameras (with hopes of adding a couple more) and these are a mixture of ps3 eye and ps2 eyetoy cameras.

On my main server, I have an external monitor (36" flat screen tv) that I use basically as a cctv setup, and I am racking my brain trying to include the 4 cams from my secondary server onto the one web gui. I have tried several options when adding a remote camera, and none of them are working, below are my inputs

on the source tab for

remote host name, I have tried just the local ip address and I have also tried the username:password@IP address

for remote host path I have tried both of the options below
/cgi-bin/nph-zms?mode=jpeg&monitor=<MONITOR_ID_HERE>=watch&mid=1&scale=100&maxfps=5&buffer=0 .... (I may not be using the correct monitor id???)
or
/cgi-bin/nph-zms?mode=jpeg&monitor=<MONITOR_ID_HERE>&scale=100&maxfps=10&buffer=1000&user=<USERNAME>&pass=<PASSWORD>

none of these are working, help me pleeeease.

Here is the html code I use on a web page:
<img src="http://server-ip/cgi-bin/nph-zms?mode=j ... &pass=user">

I have a non-privilage user that can only view the monitors

You should be able to use the remote method with http and the video source of:

/cgi-bin/nph-zms?mode=jpeg&monitor=12&scale=130&maxfps=5&buffer=1000&user=user&pass=user

In the above change monitor= to your monitor number. Scale= may not be needed for you. If you do not log in omit user= and pass=
