[SOLVED] 404 RTSP

Post by foxtrot1014 » Sat Jul 13, 2019 9:58 pm

After that annoying pop up telling me for months that there was an update to ZM, I updated myself to Ubuntu Server Bionic Beaver (18.04.x) and Zoneminder 1.32.x

Before doing so, I took screenshots of all the configurations for the camera. Once everything was done updating and it was time to configure, I set things up exactly the same as before, but my log keeps saying "No RTSP sources", "Unexpected response code 404, text is 'Stream Not Found'", and a few apparently related errors... here's the log:
zm-log.txt
(434.34 KiB) Not downloaded yet
.

The camera itself is working correctly. I can watch both feeds in VLC using the MRL "rtsp://username:password@10.0.0.41:554//Streaming/Channels/[0 or 1]"

I tried messing with some settings on the camera to no avail, such as using H265 instead of H264 and changing the resolution from 4K to 1080P.

Should I just downgrade everything?

Likely in doing the upgrade to Bionic you ended up with two versions of PHP. Bionic uses PHP 7.2 so you need to uninstall the older version.

I could and should have been a little bit more precise in how I worded things. In the process of "upgrading" to Bionic and ZM 1.32, I upgraded the hard drive for a freshly formatted (and much larger) one. So, my Ubuntu/ZM upgrades were actually clean installations on the computer (though an 'upgrade' from my perspective). And when I say clean installation, I mean clean, I even cleared the CMOS.

Unfortunately for me, that's not the solution.

Thanks for the suggestion though! Any other ideas?

Partially solved!

Instead of using "remote" as the source type, I went with ffmpeg and used the mrl format for the source path rtsp://[user]:[password]@[ip]:[port,probably554]//Streaming/Channels/[0 or 1], method was UDP.

Just started trying different settings and it happened. Strangely, I know for a fact, that with the prior versions I was operating ffmpeg didn't work. Now it does.

Conversely, I still have a problem (probably for a new thread?). My camera has 4K resolution output, and in the past it worked just fine. Now at 4K, I can't see 80% of the frames and the ones that do, only 1/4 of them is visible--lots of grays, greens and blurriness. When I step it down to 1080P, the pixelation reduces but there is still a lot of glitchiness in the feed.

What's going on? Is the newer version of Zoneminder more CPU intensive? I don't recall my load going above 1.00 in the past, with 4K it was at 1.3 and higher. Now at 1080P it's floating around 1.00 (some above some below).
