File format like this: 2013/12/04 or 2013-12-04 (for today's date), instead of being like it is now: 20131204 ...
In a better world, being able to choose the date format: 2013/12/04, or: 04/12/2013, day of the week as well, and so on.
Also, why don't you add the extension *.jpg or *.avi so we don't have to hover over the link in order to find the right file?

Regards.

Can you elaborate? Saved images and video are saved with no extensions? Double clicking the file does not open the file in an image viewer or player?  ???

300%?

Yes.  I have a Macbook Pro with a 2.3 GHz quad-core I7 and the NCSPlugin manages to spool up the fans.  All four cores get loaded to 75% exclusively by the plugin == 300% CPU load reported by the Activity Monitor.  That's to stream 640x480 video.

I can only imagine they're performing timing with infinite loops or some other bone-headed thing.

OK JavaLawyer.

Here I go.
You have links like:

   20131204_232025.jpg   16
   20131204_232025.avi   2026
   20131204_231101.jpg   16
   20131204_231101.avi   2185
   20131204_230706.jpg   16
   20131204_230706.avi   2095
   20131204_230621.jpg

But on my Ubuntu Firefox I can only see that:


Wouldn't it be possible to move the Gray rectangle with the .avi & .jpg links in the centre, and keep the "Files per Page ... Refresh" text above it so I (and guess other people) could see the text of the extensions?

Thanks.

A name for the device in my router.
« Reply #215 on: December 06, 2013, 09:03:10 AM »

Hi JavaLawyer.

If it's not too much asking.
How about a name for the camera on my router's devices list?
Here's the example where we see the names of my PC, and one of my Android devices, but no name for my D-Link DCS-942L.



Thanks.

Is this image artifact limited to Linux? Is the display correct using Windows' based FF?

Descriptive names of my D-Link cameras appear on my router's device list, then again, I'm using a D-Link router. Can other DCS-9XX owners validate whether the camera display name is properly populated on their routers?  ???  :-\  ???

Hi.

Isn't there a way to make so after hitting the "Reload current page" button in Firefox we get back to the page we were at (in my case the Image Setup one, but it goes for all the other ones except for the Setup Wizard page), instead of being redirected to the Setup Wizard page (which we need only once in the beginning of the installation of the camera)?

Thanks.
