Fast Forward/Rewind (and other scrubbing alternatives) In SD Card Playback

That didn’t work for me. But what it did do was when I tapped on the left arrow it took me back to 12:00 (00:00) and hitting the right arrow took me forward to the current time.

Not for me. iOS tapping it takes me to current time.

It does not work for today, but every day before today it does. How do I show you?

I tried to upload a video of me recording the screen, but it says that new users cannot upload videos

But I am still having troubles getting it to do it every time, so maybe it’s just a glitch

I’m using the Waze app on iOS and all of my cams are Wyze Cam V3

I guess it may just be a glitch. I can still get it to do it for one cam for one day but that’s it. Bummer I was sooooo excited about a fast forward option

It’s all good, we appreciate you sharing what you found anyway! Sometimes glitches can be leveraged into cool features. :slight_smile: We’ll see if anyone can reproduce it. Maybe we can convince Wyze to make it happen on purpose instead of as a glitch. :slight_smile:

I’ll see if one of the Mods can help raise your level to allow you to post your video :+1: (User just posted the video through YouTube below already)

If the video is too big to post the file in the forum, you can always upload it to youtube and post the link here so it will play inside the forum. When I do that, I usually tell youtube to make the video “Unlisted” so only people who have the link you share will see it anyway.

No audio just a quick show


That’s awesome! Thanks for sharing. I see you have your SD card set to record events only. I wonder if that makes a difference with this glitch. Maybe someone else with iOS and “Events only” recording can test it out and see if they can get it to work. It would be really cool to be able to do that on purpose, or get Wyze to purposely support it. It looked like it was working fairly decently.

It’s continuous record but it was having issues that day. All the others did fine…. I’m just not sure what happened.

Maybe the glitch is that it switched to events only and fast forward is only an option. But fast forwards was only an option in the “events” screen before. I have no idea.

I’m disappointed.

I experienced this one day as well.

It was after my camera was offline for a few hours and when I connected it back and viewed the playback , the playback was all sped up like that

Not sure what caused it to do that but probably just a glitch

I liked it though, I really hope to see fast forwarding and rewinding come soon

The cool thing about this glitch is that it demonstrates the camera seems to be capable of supporting it. I had always wondered if the V3 and earlier cams had processors and RAM and SD readers that could handle fast forward or not…but it seems like it’s handling it okay. It’s not perfect, but it is working! I’d settle for fast forward working just like this.

Hmm, didn’t someone awhile back mention experiencing the same thing and wanted to know why it was happening?

Just got an email “That day-one startup mentality will be ultra-focused in 2023, because this year, much like our first year in business, will be the year of the CAMERA. With your help, we will revisit everything about the Wyze Cam experience. We will focus hard on hearing all your feedback and making the best camera hardware and software in existence.”

Great news! Color me hopeful. Come on smooth scrubbing and playback improvements!

I got the same email.

I got the letter also I haven’t read it yet though. As many of us realize, if Wyze does not change the way they do business they’re going to start shedding customers like my yellow lab sheds his hair.

I would hate to see that happen because I think the company has potential to be great if management can admit that they have made mistakes in running the Company that would be a good start I know they’re saying that they should consider if they want to grow even more is getting away from the cloud processing that takes time and slows everything down. Just my two. Cents.

Well, they sort did as you hoped. Here they admit they could’ve balanced resources better, and say they made some inventory mistakes:

And this admits they weren’t perfect and had some learning to do as they grew recently:

And then they commit to do basically what you are asking for:

You gotta admit that it’s a lot more than most Companies are willing to say and commit to publicly. :slight_smile: And they covered most of the points you were hoping for (admitted they didn’t do things perfectly and committing to be more focused and listen to customer feedback and improve what they have, etc.)

Hope you’re doing well my friend. :+1:

I’m doing just great Carver, hope you and your family had a great Christmas, and I hope that the new year is very prosperous and safe for all of you.

As far as Wyze goes I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

We will see if it’s true… i.e. committed to the customer, we’ve been asking for scrubbing, and real FF/RW since inception. Or will it be just talk?

Good day
Love your products and the spirit of how you run your company

I have 2 suggestions
Don’t be like every other company using a do not reply email

For your cameras view play also make it more intuitive like the ring app

Happy to chat if you guys are open

Yes this would be awesome! Been waiting for this

The V3 cam is a game changer. As is the local recording using the SD card. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add some playback functionality increased viewing speed and/or scrubbing. Does ANY other wishlist item have more votes? Particularly one that is sitting in “maybe later” category?!
