Connect to ip camera

Post by sgarp » Tue Dec 03, 2019 9:49 pm

I just installed zoneminder in my pc, and I can successfully view the pane in: localhost/zm/

Not sure about the connection details of my ip camera.
I can see the ip camera's local ip address in my router's UI,

Let's say that the camera's local ip address is: 111.111.111.2 and the username: user, and password: pass
In zoneminder's settings i added source type: remote,

and in the next tab: hostname: localhost, and source path: user:pass@111.111.111.2
Although the console mentions: capturing, still cannot see a thing.

Don't put localhost in hostname for cameras, unless the camera is running on the zm server.
