Below is a summary of everyone's input thus far. Please let me know if I over-generalized, misrepresented, or overlooked anyone's concerns and I'll refresh the list with updates. Recent additions/changes are highlighted in blue. Items addressed on the latest software release are striked out.

If any items in the wishlist were fixed by the latest software release, please post and I'll update!

D-ViewCam Wishlist


  • General - Availability of playback controls (fixed or fadeout) while in fullscreen playback mode (i.e. playback controls are only accessible after exiting fullscreen mode)
  • General - Enable D-ViewCam to provide RTSP stream URLs to access monitored cameras (This approach would use server bandwidth rather than the local bandwidth of each client camera, improving overal quality of service)
  • General - Mobile device (Android, smartphone, tablet) access to Remove Live view and Remote Playback from D-ViewCam server
  • General - Option to disable D-ViewCam login authentication for local access (i.e. from the client PC on which the D-ViewCam application is installed)
  • General - Option to enable real time event notification (i.e. rather than the current time lag between event and system notification)
  • General - Option to abort or delay (e.g. 30 minutes, 2 hours, etc) a scheduled maintenance reboot if a user is working on the PC at the time of the scheduled reboot (rather than unilaterally rebooting)
  • General - Option to schedule a recurring auto-restart of the D-ViewCam application (rather than the host PC)
  • General - Option to re-size the tile size for individual views when multiple cameras are in use (i.e. permit each camera to have a user defined tile size)
  • General - Release a Macintosh compatible version of D-ViewCam
  • General - Remove the minimum resolution requirement (1024x768)
  • General - Remove requirement to disable UAC in order to use Console
  • General - Windows Home Server 2011 Support
  • Audio - Option to use PC audio source for all IP cameras during live preview and recording (rather than IP camera audio sources)
  • Audio - Support for concurrent audio streams from two or more connected cameras
  • Backup - (and Playback-) Time-period selection now allows only 7 days max period. Was 30 days in D-viewCam v3.11
  • Codec - [Bug] G711 audio codec does not function properly during live streams and recordings playback (i.e. persistent noise and audio is near incomprehensible (However, G726 works flawlessly)
  • Codec - Reduce encoding times
  • Codec - Support for additional codecs (xvid, h264, mpeg4) and file formats (mp4, mkv, flv) for exporting video files
  • Events - Add action 'visit website url' (e.g. visit PHP file on external server, would enable the execution of any script/alarm from any location)
  • Events - Add Event: if (selectable source: PIR or software) movement is not detected during a scheduled (e.g daily) time frame, then trigger alarm/action (This functionality would benefit nannies/babysitters, employee monitoring, etc.)
  • Events - User definable network disconnect time required to trigger the "Camera not connected" alarm/action (i.e. if the alarm is enabled, a 1 to 10 second network interruption unecessarily triggers the alarm/action, reducing the usefulness of this event)
  • Logging - Configure all logged events to be searchable and viewable on the timeline (in playback mode)
  • Logging - Option to log all events (e.g. DI triggers, DO triggers, IR light on/off, connection drops, PIR motion detection)
  • Logging - Option to exclude logging/tracking motion detection events if cameras are configured with a scheduled 24/7 recording profile (rather than recording triggered by motion detection)
  • Motion Detection - Option to use integrated PIR on camera rather than the D-ViewCam software-based motion detection solution
  • Visual - [Bug] Web Live view and Remote Playback cameras config do not match D-ViewCam main console configuration (e.g. OSD labels are always ON each time any web services are accessed)
  • Visual - Add option to configure, save, and automatically recall settings (i.e. for playback mode) for "stretch","fill", and "fit" for each camera (i.e. this functionality will address current aspect ratio issues)
  • Visual - Update GUI design with modern look-and-feel and native support for 16:9 widescreen monitors
  • Visual - In playback mode, set the default view to 1x1 grid camera view (instead of the default 4x4 grid camera view (D-ViewCam currently supports playback of one concurrent recording, so the 4x4 grid serves no function)
  • Visual - Add ability to set the D-ViewCam full screen view as the Windows desktop background (i.e. live wallpaper), rather than a static image
  • Bug - Ability to select different recroding/playback channels for each camera does not work (i.e. "Channel" field in camera config is fixed with the value "1", and does not offer additioanl functionality if checked/unchecked, does not show additional options regardless of the number of channels, available codecs, or selected resolutions)
  • [Bug v3.3, v3.2] Audio - Audio feeds stop for one or  more cameras after 24 to 48 hours (or so), restarting D-ViewCam is necessary to correct the issue
  • Bug - Remote live viewer is not accessible ("Internet explorer stopped working" message displays instead of login (Remote playback function normally)
  • Bug - "Exceed the Playback maximum channels" error message displays when using integrated support for 4 cameras
  • Bug - "Low on diskspace" error occurs when running 24/7 scheduled recording on multiple cameras (regardless of threshold settings or actual available storage)
  • Bug - Although the application supports playback for one or four local cameras, the "Exceed the Playback maximum channels" error-message persists]
  • Bug - Although the installer uninstalls the previous version, the application maintains all previous settings and cameras
  • Bug - Backup (not Export) provides feedback of files copied into Backup-set, including required OK-press at end. Not very fast, and not suppressible
  • Bug - Events (like signal lost) are not presented in the timeline
  • Bug - Playback.exe coredumps after high number of load-play actions within one session (le.g. loading 30 minutes; viewing that; and then getting next 30 minutes, and so on), roughly about 10 cycles [Memory leak?]
  • Bug - UAC is required to be off before Console can be run, even though all data-paths are personalized to acceptable locations. Workaround is to run it in a VM environment where UAC can be off
  • Bug - Video deletion does not purge empty folders when nothing is left (i.e. old recording dates). D-ViewCam v3.11 correctly addressed this issue
  • Bug - Video deletion via backup does not purge the Record.log timing-info (i.e. activity bar in selection remains, but without recorded video). D-ViewCam v3.11 cleaned this file correctly following a backup/delete event
  • Bug - When another application is launched that uses a screen resolution that differs from the desktop resolution the following message displays, "Display setting has been changed and system will be restarted now. [Yes] [No]". If "No" is selected, the message closes and D-ViewCam runs without issue. If "Yes" is selected, the PC reboots, but no changes are apparent.
  • Bug - With a large amount of free space left (hundreds of GB) it complains of lack of space, cleans up most stored recording data and stops scheduler. Happens on multiple boxes, mostly only once after upgrade, but is very annoying
  • When Windows process "Explorer" crashes and restarts, the D-ViewCam system tray icon disappears and cannot be restarted. When this occurs, the D-ViewCam MainConsole process is running  the background, but is not accessible.  Attempting to launch console.exe results in a message indicating that the process is already running and cannot be launched

Wishlist Items Addressed by D-Link (Thank you!)

  • Bug - Remote live viewer is not accessible ("Internet explorer stopped working" message displays instead of login (Remote playback function normally) [FIXED!]
  • Audio - Support for duplex sound (i.e. speaker activation on the remote camera) [FIXED!]
  • General - ONVIF support (for non-D-Link networked cameras) [FIXED!]
  • General - Provide a means to disable the pop-up dialog box providing an optimization-hint of using the OS HDD for primary storage [FIXED!]
  • General - In playback mode, add ability to recall last searched date in the calendar (currently each time the "Browse Recordings" dialog is opened the calendar defaults to the present day) [FIXED!]

Regards

Please confirm if you are already corrected this item:

*General - ONVIF support (for non-D-Link networked cameras) [FIXED!]

Can I select a different vendor or Onvif from list of manufacturers?

From that version was corrected this problem?

Thanks, from Nicaragua

I seem to have missed the the following Add from an earlier post:

- Make the web services (web live view and remote playback) compatible with other popular browsers (Google Chrome, Firefox). They're only working on IE.

My screen resolution is 2560 x 1600, i can open D-ViewCam but it's obviously not made for these resolutions as it looks like the resolution of D-ViewCam is 1920 x 1080 as there's a lot of blank/black space around the main window. if i try to make it full screen D-ViewCam freezes and i have to close it using task manager.

Are other D-ViewCam users observing this issue?

  • General - Option to disable D-ViewCam login authentication for local access (i.e. from the client PC on which the D-ViewCam application is installed)
  • General - Option to enable real time event notification (i.e. rather than the current time lag between event and system notification)
  • General - Option to abort or delay (e.g. 30 minutes, 2 hours, etc) a scheduled maintenance reboot if a user is working on the PC at the time of the scheduled reboot (rather than unilaterally rebooting)
  • General - Option to schedule a recurring auto-restart of the D-ViewCam application (rather than the host PC)

  • General - Release a Macintosh compatible version of D-ViewCam
  • General - Remove the minimum resolution requirement (1024x768)

  • Backup - (and Playback-) Time-period selection now allows only 7 days max period. Was 30 days in D-viewCam v3.11
  • Codec - [Bug] G711 audio codec does not function properly during live streams and recordings playback (i.e. persistent noise and audio is near incomprehensible (However, G726 works flawlessly)
  • Codec - Reduce encoding times
  • Codec - Support for additional codecs (xvid, h264, mpeg4) and file formats (mp4, mkv, flv) for exporting video files
  • Events - Add action 'visit website url' (e.g. visit PHP file on external server, would enable the execution of any script/alarm from any location)
  • Events - Add Event: if (selectable source: PIR or software) movement is not detected during a scheduled (e.g daily) time frame, then trigger alarm/action (This functionality would benefit nannies/babysitters, employee monitoring, etc.)
  • Events - User definable network disconnect time required to trigger the "Camera not connected" alarm/action (i.e. if the alarm is enabled, a 1 to 10 second network interruption unecessarily triggers the alarm/action, reducing the usefulness of this event)
  • Logging - Configure all logged events to be searchable and viewable on the timeline (in playback mode)
  • Logging - Option to log all events (e.g. DI triggers, DO triggers, IR light on/off, connection drops, PIR motion detection)
  • Logging - Option to exclude logging/tracking motion detection events if cameras are configured with a scheduled 24/7 recording profile (rather than recording triggered by motion detection)
  • Motion Detection - Option to use integrated PIR on camera rather than the D-ViewCam software-based motion detection solution
  • Visual - [Bug] Web Live view and Remote Playback cameras config do not match D-ViewCam main console configuration (e.g. OSD labels are always ON each time any web services are accessed)
  • Visual - Add option to configure, save, and automatically recall settings (i.e. for playback mode) for "stretch","fill", and "fit" for each camera (i.e. this functionality will address current aspect ratio issues)
  • Visual - Update GUI design with modern look-and-feel and native support for 16:9 widescreen monitors
  • Visual - In playback mode, set the default view to 1x1 grid camera view (instead of the default 4x4 grid camera view (D-ViewCam currently supports playback of one concurrent recording, so the 4x4 grid serves no function)
  • Visual - Add ability to set the D-ViewCam full screen view as the Windows desktop background (i.e. live wallpaper), rather than a static image
  • Bug - Ability to select different recroding/playback channels for each camera does not work (i.e. "Channel" field in camera config is fixed with the value "1", and does not offer additioanl functionality if checked/unchecked, does not show additional options regardless of the number of channels, available codecs, or selected resolutions)
  • [Bug v3.3, v3.2] Audio - Audio feeds stop for one or  more cameras after 24 to 48 hours (or so), restarting D-ViewCam is necessary to correct the issue
  • Bug - Remote live viewer is not accessible ("Internet explorer stopped working" message displays instead of login (Remote playback function normally)
  • Bug - "Exceed the Playback maximum channels" error message displays when using integrated support for 4 cameras
  • Bug - "Low on diskspace" error occurs when running 24/7 scheduled recording on multiple cameras (regardless of threshold settings or actual available storage)
  • Bug - Although the application supports playback for one or four local cameras, the "Exceed the Playback maximum channels" error-message persists]
  • Bug - Although the installer uninstalls the previous version, the application maintains all previous settings and cameras
  • Bug - Backup (not Export) provides feedback of files copied into Backup-set, including required OK-press at end. Not very fast, and not suppressible
  • Bug - Events (like signal lost) are not presented in the timeline
  • Bug - Playback.exe coredumps after high number of load-play actions within one session (le.g. loading 30 minutes; viewing that; and then getting next 30 minutes, and so on), roughly about 10 cycles [Memory leak?]
  • Bug - UAC is required to be off before Console can be run, even though all data-paths are personalized to acceptable locations. Workaround is to run it in a VM environment where UAC can be off
  • Bug - Video deletion does not purge empty folders when nothing is left (i.e. old recording dates). D-ViewCam v3.11 correctly addressed this issue
  • Bug - Video deletion via backup does not purge the Record.log timing-info (i.e. activity bar in selection remains, but without recorded video). D-ViewCam v3.11 cleaned this file correctly following a backup/delete event
  • Bug - When another application is launched that uses a screen resolution that differs from the desktop resolution the following message displays, "Display setting has been changed and system will be restarted now. [Yes] [No]". If "No" is selected, the message closes and D-ViewCam runs without issue. If "Yes" is selected, the PC reboots, but no changes are apparent
  • Bug - With a large amount of free space left (hundreds of GB) it complains of lack of space, cleans up most stored recording data and stops scheduler. Happens on multiple boxes, mostly only once after upgrade, but is very annoying
  • When Windows process "Explorer" crashes and restarts, the D-ViewCam system tray icon disappears and cannot be restarted. When this occurs, the D-ViewCam MainConsole process is running  the background, but is not accessible.  Attempting to launch console.exe results in a message indicating that the process is already running and cannot be launched

Wishlist Items Addressed by D-Link (Thank you!)

  • Bug - Remote live viewer is not accessible ("Internet explorer stopped working" message displays instead of login (Remote playback function normally) [FIXED!]
  • Audio - Support for duplex sound (i.e. speaker activation on the remote camera) [FIXED!]
  • General - ONVIF support (for non-D-Link networked cameras) [FIXED!]
  • General - Provide a means to disable the pop-up dialog box providing an optimization-hint of using the OS HDD for primary storage [FIXED!]
  • General - In playback mode, add ability to recall last searched date in the calendar (currently each time the "Browse Recordings" dialog is opened the calendar defaults to the present day) [FIXED!]

I just started using the D-ViewCam software after purchasing the 932L, 942L and 5020L. In the Smart Guard Configuration, it would be nice to have an event based on a sound trigger. Let's say camera 942L, located in the garage, picks up a sound level past its threshold (the event). You could have your PTZ camera (located in the window of your house) look outside to see what's happening (Action = move to preset 'garageview').

The same could happen inside the house. Let's say the PTZ is monitoring the backyard through the window and a loud sound event occurs inside the house. You could have the PTZ set to go to preset 'insideview'.

The action list could be made more robust by adding delays, move camera to preset, etc...

This wishlist contains feature suggestions provided by the forum community and may not reflect actual changes to current or future D-Link application releases. Below is a summary of everyone's input thus far. Please let me know if I over-generalized, misrepresented, or overlooked anyone's concerns and I'll refresh the list with updates.
