I would really like to test your app, especially the desktop version. Eventually also the mobile version. I think this app will really be a winner among my clients! I can't seem to get the binaries to work in either Windows or Linux.
What OS do you recommend I test with? I tried zmNinja on a machine running Windows 7 and then on another with Windows 10 and could not get it to run. Error returned says the OS is not compatible. What am I over-looking or what am I missing in my UI stacks? I really would love to test this out. API works great on my 1. I am running it on a w7 machine right now and so are others who are testing it. So I can't really provide more input till you post more details.
Which ZIP file did you download and are you running it on a desktop running W7? Or a Dell Inspiron E with Windows 10 also updated to most recent stand.
I got the API to work well after re-reading the docs from the link from knnniggett. I missed a step while building 1. So now I have a fully functional ZoneMinder 1. You should have seen a screen like this -- and then downloaded the ZIP.
After downloading, unzip, and double click on zmninja. You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. Got the API working, got the Linux desktop connected and all seems well. But I only see big red question marks for my monitors. I have 10 GrandStream cams, each puts out a low-def feed and a high-def feed. So a total of 20 monitors. Ideally I'd like to have zmNinja show me the low-def streams in the montage view.

Try before you buy worked better than I expected I downloaded the compiled app onto my Mac, ran the wizard, and liked what I saw so I bought the app for my iPhone and also installed it on my iPad.
