There are 4 Modes that you can choose from for a camera.
Disabled : The monitor is not loaded to be used by Shinobi.
Watch-Only : Shinobi is Watching the camera stream. It will not be recording unless ordered to do so by a user or an Event.
Record : Continuous Recording. Event-based recordings are disabled when the monitor is in this mode.
Idle : Disabled but loaded and ready for Shinobi to interact with the monitor variables.
Adding an MJPEG Camera
MJPEG is the old school way of streaming. Shinobi supports it but it takes a little bit of know-how. Here's that know-how. If your camera is capable of providing an H.264 Stream I suggest you take a look at the links above first.
The second link provided can show you how to add Audio to your MJPEG stream input.
"PTZ is an abbreviation for pan, tilt and zoom and reflects the movement options of the camera. Other types of cameras are ePTZ or virtual pan-tilt-zoom (VPTZ) where a high-resolution camera digitally zooms and pans into portions of the image, with no physical camera movement. Ultra-low bandwidth surveillance streaming technologies use VPTZ to stream user-defined areas in higher quality without increasing overall bandwidth usage." Wikipedia - Pan–tilt–zoom camera
There are 3 distinct user levels in Shinobi. Superuser, Admin, and Sub-Account. In essence, Superuser is for creating Admin accounts which are masters of "Groups". Admins are for creating Monitors and Sub-Accounts. Sub-Accounts are created by the Admin with limited privileges when cameras are shared with other people.
