Re: Random gaps in capture - [Monitor 8 last captured 6 seconds ago, max is 5]

So... yeah this is old but... mysql writing to disk is likely frame data, frame stats data and/or logs. ls -l /var/lib/mysql/zm and see which tables are huge. Likely it will be Frames, Stats, Logs. You can turn off stats in Options->Logging->stats down near the bottom. You can reduce logging to only...

Re: Failed to create hwaccel device.

What do you have for decoder options? Each encoder/decoder supports different options unfortunately.

Also, next turn on debug and check logs, there might be more information reported by vaapi.

Re: Cannot play events

I should have mentioned in the release notes, some hwaccel codecs just crash instead of handling failure to initialize well. Set your encoding codec specifically to libx264 so that it doesn't automatically try hwaccel codecs. Also maybe specify h264 instead of h265. Unless you want h265. Also each c...

Re: High Ram usage

So for a 12fps keyframe interval, I would recommend a max image buffer setting of like 25 to 30. The first two logs show reasonable behaviour. The third shows several things: 1 it is using cuda to decode. You might try without. hwaccel has really not worked out in practice 2 decoding is not keeping ...

Re: Feedback - Poor Performance Using 1.34

I find that comment unacceptable. Watch yourself. Your experience is the anecdotal one. alabamatoy's experience is the norm. And he has been around here a lot longer and been a lot more helpful to everyone than you. We run ZM succcessfully on everything from raspberry pi's to server clusters with 80...

Packages are just starting to roll out now. For ubuntu, since this is a new stable release, it has a new ppa.

Re: Possible problem in 1.35.27? Montage....

if you have more than 4 cameras and are NOT using multiport, then yeah chrome locks up. Didn't used to but does now. I think it just builds up a huge queue of processes trying to connect to the camera streams. Could be due to the removal of mootools, perhaps our timeouts are not set the same. Will i...

Re: High Ram usage

You may just need to set it higher. Increase gradually until they go away.
Or reduce your keyframe interval.
Alternatively there may be something going on that is blocking the event writing process.

Will need debug level 3 logs.

You aren't by any chance using de-interlacing?

Re: Capture crash

I have an idea what is going on based on some googling.

Do you have your ImageBufferCount set to 0? It actually needs to be somewhere around 3 to 5 (3 works for me but I've seen some choppiness in live view).

Some code assumes at least 1
