Help with ffmpeg and GPUs on Linux

Post by user671 » Fri Jul 03, 2020 5:58 am

I'm a total noob when it comes to Linux and I need some help if anyone is willing.
I know when I installed a second drive into my machine running linux that I needed to partition and mount that drive in order to write to it. Is there something similar I need to do for an AMD or Nvidia GPU as well to use to hardware acceleration in zoneminder? I know that hardware acceleration in zoneminder is spotty, but's it's something I'd like to know how to do.

I was looking at this thread and I was just confused by it.

I need to install ffmpeg on my own? Or does zoneminder already install its own?

Any help would be appreciated.

See: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/GPU_passthrough_in_VMWare

Forums has a bit written about it. Experts only atm.
fastest way to test streams:
ffmpeg -i rtsp://<ipaddress>:554/path output.mp4
from terminal, and run through paths on ispydb or in zm hcl
