We have H.264 video recording from MagicWave Systems network license plate cameras working on multiple video recording servers. The servers are deployed in outdoor, high traffic environments within air-conditioned enclosures. Use of h264 for video has several advantages:

  • Low Delay. Often the timestamps between camera and ZoneMinder can be fairly separated in other modes.
  • ZMA processes appear to be more stable. ZMA processes have had stability issues on some machines in other modes.
  • Less Load. H264 streams put less load on the system, which is great for low power systems.
  • Little change in image quality. Various settings allow optimizing images.
  • Consistent/ smooth video. Events are complete and without jumping in video.

In order to get this functioning properly, we set up these machines with the most recent revision of x264 and ffmpeg (Nov 17, 2010). ZoneMinder is also from SVN in these installs though not always the same revision. Next we used Ffmpeg mode as the source and the url rtsp://ip:554/axis-media/media.amp as the path. On the more powerful of our machines we ran at 5 fps, the others lower. Our cameras are in Modect mode and detect motion properly and consistently.

Some other notes:

  • Be sure the rtsp server is enabled on the camera.
  • Be sure settings are optimized and consistent between the camera and ZoneMinder
Make sure the RTSP server in the camera is enabled
