I actually have to say that I’ve seen some positive changes at Wyze but at the same time as they introduced positive changes I don’t see the performance of the application and the videos taken has been great and notifications are sometimes late the video often times doesn’t load and I still can’t play anything back off of my cards without taking them out of the camera and it to me is kind of ridiculous defeats the whole purpose of the Internet
10X speed would be too fast. 1.5X, 2X up to 5X is usable. You could even program a virtual jog shuttle to male it easier for people. The key to it is buffering the video properly. Or possibly programming a frame skip so it doesn’t lag too much. The playback will be choppier but it won’t lag as bad as trying to do 60-150fps in ffwd.
I agree. Yesterday one of my chickens got out of the run 3 times, and again this morning. I have one cam aimed at the left side of the chicken run and another aimed at the right side. I went through hours and hours of event recordings, one by one at 4x the speed, back and forth, back and forth until I finally just gave up.
This was one time when I sure could’ve used that feature in the playback where I could just go through it all without having to go back and clicking on one short clip after another.
I don’t know which photos program you use but I use an iPhone and when I bring up my photos and I want to edit there’s a button up on the top it says edit and when it appears there is a line at the bottom of the phone that’s got little pictures of the entire recording and you can scrub back-and-forth on it Really really quickly and it shows exactly where you’re at in your clip it’s a handy thing I don’t know any other programs that have that but it would be nice to take and invoke something like that
scrubbing is used in motion picture editing and all kinds of photographers that take videos use a similar process.
This is one of the things I most want on a V3 cam. Without it, playback is essentially useless for the obvious reason that it’s too hard and too time consuming to find anything. I can’t believe Wyze made such a huge mistake as not having fast forwarding in playback to begin with.
I sure hope so. Some of my chickens keep getting out and I’d like so much to be able to have those features so I can get to the timelines quickly. Just had another one escape and am slowly looking for the footage.
I would love to be able to fast forward during memory card footage! I have a dog marking in the home and most time the events don’t catch it because it happening in the living room where there is a lot of motion happening. (4 animals total) so instead of clicking through hundreds of events- it would be so much easier to just playback footage at 2x or 3x in the timeframe in which I think the incident happened! PLEASE add it!
[Mod Edit]Merged with an existing wishlist topic. Give it a vote to help it along!
Yes, that’s something I voted for, too. I was just in my playback this morning looking for something and the only way to get any kind of fast forward/backward was to hit the ±30 icon really fast a bunch of times to take me back or forward 30 seconds with each click.
