It's good to give back. I almost had to give up and just spin up a Ubuntu 16.04 server but reeeaaally wanted to stay with Arch. Love my Arch.

Thanks a bunch to *you* for finding the issues. I'm using a docker container, but at some point I'll re-test running it native. :)

Ah yes, I see your permissions update in there. I think I probably caused a few things to be owned by root while I was poking around. (I ran a few things as sudo). Thanks for updating!

Thanks for poking around, I'll fiddle these changes into the package and see how it turns out.

Edit: Package updated, .patch file added to fix server.xml. And java-runtime>=8 dependency.

I'm not going to do a chown as part of it, that already happens as part of post_install.

Bingo! 4 hours later...

There's something broken with the gzip compression in tomcat.
You can disable it by modifying /usr/lib/unifi-video/conf/server.xml and looking for all references of compression="on"

I'll let you guess what value you should update it to :)

Also, this is no longer jre7 compatible. Lots of "Could not initialize class javax.imageio.ImageIO" Runs swimmingly well with 8

Hey, me again. Edit #3. You'll also need to sudo chown -R unufi-video:unifi-video /usr/lib/unifi-video/conf/evostream/ if you run into problems with getting a single frame of video but no stream or recording

I had enough trouble w/ unifi-video on Arch that I've switched to using a docker image based on Ubuntu. I found an existing one that was pretty good and then improved the heck out of it.

If any of you are having trouble w/ it from this AUR package, consider giving the docker version a try.

An Ubuntu vm was my next step if I hadn't just randomly tried to load up for no dang reason and it saw my nvr. I didn't even know it'd do that.

Will try doing fryfrog's suggestion when i get a chance. For now, I have it up in running in a headless vm running ubuntu. i also had success with it working using a docker container following the suggestions of

Can those that have been having problems try doing the setup using from a computer on the network where the nvr software is installed? I just tried that after spending a few frustrating hours trying to do it as I'd expected using http://ip:7080/. It worked. :/

I did a clean install and I'm having the same issue now. I can do step 1 and 2, but can't log in afterward. It just spits me back out to a login prompt. I tried downgrading to 3.6.0 and 3.5.2, but it did the same thing. There isn't even anything useful in the logs, I can see me log in but nothing else.
