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.

Hi fryfrog,

The strange thing is, that there are no real errors in the log files. The only error line I got is:

ERROR UpdateService: Error - airvisionUpdateInfo is null in UpdateService-UpdateCheckTask
ERROR UpdateService - processAirVisionUpdate() - No Airvision Update Info in UpdateService-UpdateCheckTask

I have now tried this on a totally clean/reinstall archlinux, there is nothing else installed than unification-video.

Best Regards
Soren Hansen

Is there anything in the logs?

ssgross, did you managed to get this version running on arch? I have exact the same problem as you "Unexpected Error, the server responded with status code of 404" I have tried with a clean install of this packaged (Deleted all my config) but the problem persists.

found an error that appears sometimes, and sometimes not, about wired tiger not being able to connect to mongodb.
Also curios: I installed a clean vm install of the latest ubuntu 16.04lts. I was unable to install unifi-video there because it claims openjdk 8 headless as a dependency, but only 7 is available in any of the repos, even after a full update/upgrade. i'm going to try and make a pkg build for an older version of unifi-video and see if i can get it to work...consistantly. i think there is some versioning or library version issues that are preventing it from running in arch. i'm hesitant to start up a thread at ubnt, all of the other distro related questions there get either unanswered, or end simply with no support is planned.
