With the new Javascript (JS) update, users will no longer have to use Plugins in order to access the Web User Interface. This will drastically increase the number of supported browsers.

FTP is fixed, users who had issues with FTP not working at all or having their files deleting themselves after a device reset, this should now be resolved.

Microphone Button removed due possible security concern. Will return in the future

Infinite loading issue resolved

Multi-Snapshot removal due to JS limitation. R&D will perform further evaluation for possible future return.

Audio only works with Chrome, not FF 67.0.4. Works amazing in Chrome, smooth and fast. Well done! If Amcrest does this for the rest of Amcrest line for browser viewing I think their stock will go up. I auto reboot every Wednesday at 6:02am as I've noticed over time connectivity from IP Camera's get choppy if not. When this happens, my camera drops the image down to 720p (1280*720). I was hoping this beta FW would fix it but it did not. Happens on all 4 of my 1051's but not the 841's. Great work on the multi-browser functionality though.

One thing everyone should be aware of is the System>Auto Maintain>REBOOT options is gone with this BETA FW. It's not mentioned in the above Firmware changes section. So if you manually reboot remotely from time to time, this option is gone, which makes no sense to me.

Javiot,

Thank you for the great feedback and our R&D will further investigate the audio on Firefox and the choppy video over time.

UPDATE - disregard below. Works fine now if I log in from the admin account.


The setup menu doesn't seem to work correctly in Chrome or Firefox, only Safari. I cannot access the stream settings, profile settings, etc.

Actually, just restarted Safari again, the setup menu disappeared now. Can't get to the screen that allows me to revert back to previous firmware. If I clear the cookies, the setup menu seems to come back again in Safari.

mromamcrest,
if possible, can you have the R&D team see if they can add a switch to make the NIC be 2.4 or 5Ghz? I'd like to set mine to 5, but one is stubborn and always seems to connect at 2.4. Thanks,
Javiot

The plugin-less live view is great and long-awaited, thanks a bunch!

I have upgraded the firmware from stock version to beta Amcrest_IPC-AWXX-V2-Rhea_Eng_N_AMCREST_V2.620.00AC000.3.T.20190604.bin

Under System -> Manager Users, the Authority List seems to have duplicated some items, such as "PTZ". In stock firmware, "PTZ" was not even present. Also, same as stock, I'm having problems creating a new user/group. Simply, I wish to have a new user group that can only do Live+PTZ, but every time I try to add a new user with those, it says "User authorities overlap!".

Fox, thanks for the feedback!

I have noted down this specific issue and will verify it is resolved in the next beta firmware for 1051. We hope to have new beta firmware for 1051 in August. If you find any other issues, big or small that you would like addressed, please let us know.

This firmware works in Chrome. Emailing using smtp.gmail.com doesn't work. It immediately tells you "Email test failed" when clicking the 'Email Test' button.
