Wyze Pan Cam v3 - no "view playback" button

How do I view playback on the Pan Cam v3? There’s no “View Playback” button like on my other 2 cams. There’s the “SD Card” button, which shows a vertical timeline-like thing, that seems to be similar, but there are no < and > arrows to jump ahead and back like in the earlier cams. Little green line segments on the right side look like they would be spots that have recorded footage, but tapping them does nothing. I have to drag the large timestamp thing up and down, and it’s not very user friendly.
An internet search turned up nothing on this question.

The “SD card” menu item has replaced the view playback button in the Pan Cam V3 user interface. As you have seen, a vertical slider.

Do you have continuous recording on or Events only? If you are only recording events, you should see the green segments vs all green, and you should be able to quickly scroll to those events.

Place your thumb or finger in the timeline box and “scroll” to the time you want (you don’t have to be on the actual timestamp), where you can scroll to the second. You will also see event notifications on the timeline if continuous record.

It sounds as if you are navigating it as designed, but prefer the navigation of the other cameras.

I personally don’t mind this style of navigation, but the experience should be as consistent as possible with the cameras.


OK thanks for the info about it, I have Events Only recording, not continuous. Yeah, it was great having those arrows to jump right to the start of the next recorded segment, not have to fumble around with a clumsy finger scroll. Frequently in the older Playback, more was recorded than was included in the official Event, which was helpful.

I see the event icons there too, but tapping on them doesn’t do anything, doesn’t take me there nor move the timestamp to it.
Thanks for the help.
