When in Zoneminder (version used:1.27.1) in the settings of your monitor, voice
Source tab as follows:
Remote Protocol: HTTP Remote Method: Simple Remote Host Name: root:firstname.lastname@example.org Remote Host Port: 8088 Remote Host Path: /cgi-bin/video.jpg Target Colorspace: 24 bit color Capture Width (pixels): 320 Capture Height (pixels): 240
but does not want to operate with a blue screen!
INFO AND NOTE:
- I'm asking for help to install a Vivotek FD6122 IP Camera (manual at page 62 URL syntax: "http:///cgi-bin/video.jpg")
The camera works perfectly.
When I run its browser access: 192.168.xy: 8088/cgi-bin/video.jpg, it asks me:
user: root password: miapassword
and I see the camera on quietly browser.
The VIVOTEK camera also works great from web administration panel (
http://192.168.xy:8088/snapshot.vspx) and Android phone.
The behavior of browsers not working only in the VIVOTEK, only on Firefox by directly entering USERNAME and PASSWORD (method working on other IP cameras) root:email@example.com:8088/cgi-bin/video.jpg
Zoneminder does not like USERNAME and PASSWORD to be empty. It is advisable to always use these two data otherwise, as happened in the other camera IP, does not display and shows the usual blue screen with timer and date working! As soon as I entered USERNAME and PASSWORD the other IP camera "magically" worked however, except for the "squeamish" Vivotek FD6122!
I did not find the model here Vivotek in Zoneminder. I tried the settings for the similar model (Vivotek FD8134) at the site of zoneminder
recommended settings Zoneminder (Vivotek FD8134):
Remote Protocol: RTSP Remote Method: RTP/RTSP Remote Host Name: Put in the cameras IP or hostname Remote Host Path: /live.sdp
and both Zoneminder, both from the browser, but without success in both cases.
log files of the three errors are repeated continuously:
