Re: Timestamps in passthrough mode

Right.
zm must decode the stream so it can encode the time stamps.

Re: strange datarate on record

OK. So if you reverse the setting of cam1 and 2, does FPS and datarate follow the same pattern? I'm wondering if they are really identical.

Re: Camera Switch to None,Disabled alone

Weird. Do they all do this?
Perhaps a sick database disk? I'd try adding the camera(s) (clone it if you like) again and see what happens.

Re: Camera configuration backup

Not that I'm aware of.
You can save/restore the "Monitors" table in your database.

Re: Video records FPS much lower than original stream

On the unwanted logs:
you can adjust those with settings in Options -> Logging -> LOG_LEVEL_*

Don't forget to hit the 'save' button at the bottom of the page.

Re: strange datarate on record

If you switch the settings to another one of the three cameras, is the result similar?
Also, are the cams seeing similar scenes in terms of motion?

Re: Camera backdoor

...you gotta power the camera somehow, right?
In my case, I have outlets almost everywhere I want a camera - so, wireless for most of my cams.

Re: Help Wanted!

Just to clarify, there is no such thing as "ZM(stable v1.35.23)"
Stable is 1.34.25

Re: Installation error in Zoneminder matser 1.35.26~20210413091429-focal [Solved ]

It is apparent that the Isaac Cooor's fix has already being included in the latest Zoneminder master 1.35.26~20210417163214-focal
Therefore it is not necessary to apply the fix manually
May be ok on fresh install, but upgrade fails now. At least for me.

But now:

1.35.26~20210417163214-focal

- db upgrade fails.
Ran zmupdate manually failed.
Got it to work with the suggested mysql work-around.

Re: High CPU usage

FPS should show in montage, unless you turned it off,
and camera views brought up by clicking on the camera thumbnail, or a less frequent one under function, where it's capturing.

Re: text frame 'Unable to stream' in 1.35.23

I find changing the source type restores live view.

E.G., Ffmpeg -> Libvlc -> Ffmpeg (with decoding enabled) restores the stream. Scary stuff.

Re: High CPU usage

I don't see where you mentioned what the cams are?
What is zm reported fps? Is there more than one stream?

Re: High CPU usage

"Hmmmmm... what to do.... "

Play with it!
I have mostly pretty low res cams and run them at 5fps, modect, and don't have any problems that bother me at the moment.
I do sort of wish they'd made a release of this version a few weeks ago when it was pretty stable, though.

Good luck. :D
