Zoneminder plugin for Freevo, first release

I’ve wrote an Zoneminder plugin for Freevo.

Features

The first release of the plugin support the fallowing features :

  • Monitor Live Streaming ;
  • Montage ;
  • Browse events by monitor ;
  • Browse events by time

I’ve planned to add :

  • Secure HTTP ;
  • Playback Navigation (rewind and fast forward) ;
  • Live event notification.

Please feel free to ask any other feature. Patches and bug reports are welcome ;)

Download

You can download the freevo plugin from the subversion repository :

svn co http://svn.csquad.org/zoneminder_freevo/

Install

Just copy the zoneminder.py file into /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/freevo/plugins (2.5 should be your current version of python) as root.
And install the MySQLdb python package on your system. (apt-get install python-mysqldb on Debian GNU/Linux).

Setup

Put the fallowing line in the local_conf.py file :

plugin.activate(‘zoneminder’, level=45)
ZONEMINDER_CONFIG = ‘/etc/zm.conf’
ZONEMINDER_EVENTS_DIR = ‘/var/www/events’
ZONEMINDER_CLIENT_IPV4_ADDRESS = ”
ZONEMINDER_SERVER_AUTH_TYPE = ‘builtin’
ZONEMINDER_SERVER_USERNAME = ‘admin’
ZONEMINDER_SERVER_PASSWORD = ‘admin’
ZONEMINDER_SERVER_AUTH_RELAY = ‘hashed’
ZONEMINDER_SERVER_AUTH_HASH_SECRET = ”
ZONEMINDER_SERVER_HOST = ‘localhost’
ZONEMINDER_SERVER_PORT = ’80’
ZONEMINDER_SERVER_USE_SSL = False

The file /etc/zm.conf must be readable by the freevo user.
# id freevo
uid=1003(freevo) gid=100(users) groups=100(users),24(cdrom),29(audio),44(video),46(plugdev)
ls -l /etc/zm.conf
-rw-rw---- 1 root users 1324 2008-08-04 01:21 /etc/zm.conf

Now you can restart freevo and use the plugin.
