@thardie Wow, how did you find that this was the problem and fix it?

Videos being deleted by cron unintentionally (not keeping history)
I've got a camera set to record up to 30 days worth of video and up to 100000MB of space but it looks like CRON runs every few hours and just cleans them all up regardless of how they are set. I don't know where I can change this as I've checked that the limits are set correctly in both the Super menu for the user and for the specific monitor as well.
There are only ever a max of 4 I've noticed in the video list at any time and any previous dates are not show. I've changed the max videos box to read just 100 (instead of 000,100) but that doesn't change it.
Message every few hours regardless of the video ages below:
type : CRON :
f : filterMatch
msg : 4 SQL rows match "deleteOldVideosByCronjCOXQ6gBNB"
RE: Motion detection not working at all
It seems that I've inadvertently got motion detection working but I'm not sure how. I intentionally installed Ubuntu 17 like in the instructions (though the Centos version didn't work either) and now after manually setting the region size to exactly what I wanted to record it seems to detect motion. Now the only problem is that it will delete the videos after a day and I've got it set to keep 30 days worth of video and up to 100000 MB (unly using 1G GB per day). I need to cut down the video size eventually but I've got 100GB to play with until it should start deleting it. At least it's detecting motion now, but no idea what I did differently unless it's only compatible with Ubuntu 17 with no updates.
Motion detection not working at all
I've been fighting to get Shinobi working for the last few days and it's just not doing what it should. I've reinstalled it 5 different times with various LInux OS and it's all the same issues. I can get the camera stream and watch them but as soon as I attempt to utilize motion detection it just doesn't record anything. The latest attempt I even set it up with Docker so I would be sure I'm not missing something and it has the same problem. What's strange is if I go to the Region Select section all I get is a Brown Box where the live video should be. This might be the whole problem. I don't necessarily want region detect but I figured I'd try since it wasn't working otherwise. I've attempted setting up the monitor with RTSP and MJPG and it will show the stream on the monitor but it will not ever detect motion. I don't see any particular error in the logs regarding this either. Any advice or suggestions?
