Snapshot JPEG events and playback, etc.

Post by blit9 » Mon Nov 11, 2019 12:57 am

Hi. New ZoneMinder user here. I've been through the forums and docs, and frankly ZM is so comprehensive that it's a plethora of documentation riches that haven't led me to a solution yet, so any advice would be appreciated.

I have an IP camera with video and 2-way audio streaming, but the only aspect that appears to be documented is pulling out snapshot JPEGs about one every 2 seconds max. I'd like to do as much as I can with this. I've set up the camera, and tried it in different modes. The images are being captured, but when I try to display them in ZM I usually get a black display. Each capture snapshot appears to be a separate event - so they really are piling up.

What I really want to do is capture the snapshots on a 24/7 basis and save them, then be able to play them back sequentially as a very frame-lossy video. I'd also like to use them for motion detection, and flag/alarm based on those specific kinds of events.

Thanks very much!
