Dell Studio 1550 Laptop
I really want to get this working. I have a dell studio 1550 laptop with a built in webcam and when I finish the above the source /dev/video0 (0) is red and I can't probe camera. I'm guessing the config file needs adjusting to make this work since this is not a usb camera. However when I use code "ls /dev/video*" to see if webcam is working I get the correct output, /dev/video0
If your webcam works with another software, you go to step third.
If none, follow this:
- You have to read this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Webcam
- If your webcam be supported by Ubuntu, you install cheese:
- You change Capture Method, Device Format, Capture Palete and choose the best one for your webcam.

If it works, /dev/video0 is green.
- Make sure Zoneminder is Running. ( http://picasaweb.google.com/letshare...50885065119250 )
- Added www-data user.
- /dev/video0 it mean /dev/video number zero not letter o.
hello, this is a pretty awesome install script. If it is not a sticky in the zoneminder wiki already, it should be.
Could anyone help me to install Zone minder on Ispconfig3 Server/system.
(Ubuntu 10.04 LTS)
I would like to make sure zone minder install and configuration wont affect system wide settings and affect Ispconfig3 system in negative way.
Also the web root and database should use parameters that are set up through Ispconfig3.
All mainly for stability and security of already complex system.
In the and i will like to post the images from usb web cam connected to this system on another website also configured on this system.
Probably straight forward for someone with deeper knowledge of permissions and relations in this subject.
Need help to access Zoneminder camera
I plan to view the streaming of my laptop webcam on my Android Device. I used Zoneminder to setup my laptop webcam as a Zoneminder Monitor and was able to view it well. I use an app on my Android device that needs a hostname/ip address of camera and port number. I'm unable to get the hostname info from zoneminder. Can I get any help on this?
