CV binary w/out Zoneminder

I don't see a binary that I can pipe video into and get motion detection / computer vision results from. For example, ffmpeg has its libraries (which ZM uses) and it also has the single executable which can do most (if not all) the same functions. OpenCV is only a library from what I can tell. Zonem...

Re: mysql backup/restore questions

zmuser is the default account used for Mariadb/mysql. You can always start over, if you have a backup. See: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/MySQL#Recreate_ZM_DB mysql -u root -p -e "drop database zm;" mysql -u root -p -e "create database zm;" mysql -u root -p zm < zmdb.sql mysql -u root -p -e "grant all...

Re: database very large Frames.ibd: 34G Logs.ibd: 584M

Did you upgrade from 1.28 or earlier? See https://wiki.zoneminder.com/MySQL#IBData_files_Large Having ibd files too large can be from having the earlier DB format, MyISAM. Starting from 1.32, ZM uses innoDB which should avoid this issue. In ZoneMinder 1.28, I had an issue with the ibdata1 file in /v...

Re: New Install v1.34.23

Did you set a custom storage area or are you using the default? The default is at /var/cache/zoneminder/events. Do you see videos there? If you set a custom storage area, did you set it up properly?

Re: SQL Error Starting ZoneMinder

... I found that several directories inside /var/log related to ZoneMinder had filled the 120 GB root partition. I deleted all the contents of these log directories and rebooted the server. There's only one directory for buster: /var/log/zm/. Syslog also can fill up. Settings are adjusted in option...

Re: ZoneMinder (1.32.2) on Slackware 15

The apache config seems to be missing a bit:

Compare that to Debian 1.34.

Re: New Storage issue

There is no need to create the /zoneminder/events folder. In fact, the paths don't look like that at all in custom storage (with default settings). See what one of my folders (/videos/One_10tb/) looks like: /videos/ ├── One_10tb │   ├── 10 │   │   ├── 2020-11-13 │   │   │   ├── 4263714 │   │   │   │...

Re: Dual Lens Camera

I checked but the user manual doesn't detail the path... You can view the feed from the cameras webpage right? Usually if you right click the feed to view in a new window it's /mjpg/video.mjpg. What if you right click and open the 2nd feed in a new tab? Also sometimes it will announce a path when it...

Re: More than one view in montage

Typically malformed images like this are due to the source settings being wrong in ZM. Probably wrong resolution.

Post camera settings, ZM source settings, and then try the video in ffmpeg or vlc. What do those output for video resolution and details?

Re: VNC: Error Loading libvncclient shared library not found

Also, there is an issue with the DB creation on buster / devuan. It looks like whatever dpkg is doing in zoneminder.postinst is failing. What happens is that the numbers don't show in the web console for day,week,month, etc for a monitor. They do show totals. When I try to run the zm_create.sql I ge...

Re: Install on Shared Hosting?

IMHO your going to need hosting that is dedicated to IP cam security. regular web hosting isnt going to cut it. a VPS ( virtual private server ) may work but it isnt going to be cheap. There's no reason you can't use a generic VPS, but you have to spec accordingly. You'll need a VPN, and a big enou...
