Re: Any way to adjust video settings?

Geoff Welcome to the forum. I have found a way to control the image from my USB camera that works on my PC. As I previously mentioned, my usual USB input is from a video grabber that receives an analogue signal from a birdbox/feeding table camera that I have got. I use a very versatile charity ware...

Re: Poor Night Vision with IP8M-T2499EW-28MM

Welcome to the forum.

Is the camera behind a window or inside some sort of protective enclosure? That looks like a reflected blur to me.

Re: How Amcrest treats elderly customers...

I don't speak on behalf of AMCREST and I'm just a customer like you but I like to think I look at things realistically and how I see it is:- 1. Walmart trading practices are not controlled by Amcrest. 2. Your camera failed outside the 12 month guarantee period. 3. Your age and physical condition hav...

Re: How Amcrest treats elderly customers...

I can see that you are upset but accepting that the situation is as you describe it, I can't see that Amcrest have done anything wrong nor do I understand what age has got to do with it. I'm all for calling out unacceptable trading practices when deserved and I do it myself. I don't believe in third...

Re: IP3M General Setup Guide - Most likely will work for others.

I fully understand where you are coming from. There have been times when I have been on the verge of throwing a camera out of the window in disgust and I definitely don't see IP cameras, the firmware they run on or the applications that are written to support them through rose tinted glasses (that's...

Re: IP3M General Setup Guide - Most likely will work for others.

I often think that all sellers are wrong in making the claims that they do about how simple installing and using their equipment is. It’s not simple but most of us find ways of overcoming the difficulties. The real problem is that there’s no ‘one size fits all’ solution. The best of all options is t...

Re: Live View on Desktop

update - VLC settings allow starting up in minimal view so that is out of the way. I've got results googling "VLC remember last window size" but haven't worked that one out yet. It does appear to be an item somewhere in preferences ( which are very wide ranging and allow a tremendous degree of custo...

Re: Live View on Desktop

I have VLC installed in the folder D:\VLC. I've been able to create 3 x working shortcuts on my desktop, one for each of my cameras using :- D:\VLC\vlc.exe rtsp://admin:[email protected].168.178.IP_for_camera:554/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=0 so those could just be dragged into my startup folder....

Re: A night time visitor.

It was pure chance that I caught the owl. I do have some other cameras for a birdbox and a feeding table but this one is set up as a security camera first and foremost. I believe that apart from good locks, the best deterrent to criminals is to make sure there are no dark corners in which to lurk :D...
