1. The ability to stream recorded video files, rather than to have to download each separate recorded video and play it remotely. After all, we can view live video via RTSP in this way, so why not recorded video?

I imagine this would be like a PVR/DVR function and realize this implementation may fatten the firmware beyond of the DCS-942L's firmware bloat limit because it would require several video decoders (the camera only encodes video ATM AFAIK).

Implementation might be through RTSP, or even an IPTV concept where each camera could be a "channel". Could have FF, REW, PAUSE, PLAY features like one would expect.

This is most likely beyond the camera's physical specifications, but I'll add nonetheless...


2. (related to #1) Smart TV app (Samsung, LG, GoogleTV, etc.) to play live or recorded video as streamed video. User controls would be the expected REW, PAUSE, PLAY, FFWD, and a seek slider bar.

Not a firmware upgrade. This is an external app

3. (related to #1) Single frame capture, such as: pause the recorded streamed video and press a "button" and that frame would be saved as a .jpg

Added...

[
4. (related to #1) Streamed recorded video would continue to play each video file in sequence (preferrably without noticeable gaps between each file) until stopped by the user.

Added...

5. Face recognition (and tagging?): this is likely a hardware change, so outside the scope of this camera's abilities.

Probably beyond the camera's physical specifications, but I'll add nonetheless...

Hi there, I have a wish list entry for the DCS-942L (A1) Firmware.

Like other D-Link Cloud Camera's, we'd really like the option to change / edit the OSD (Date / Time / Camera Name) etc...... It's important to be able to move the OSD from it's default Left Hand Side and to edit such as field / font / color like the other camera's.  An example of why.... my DNS-322L displays it's OSD on the Left Hand Side also, so it is superimposed over the DCS-942L OSD..... very confusing and unreadable for this important info....

Thanks,

Cheers :)

Hello,
another suggestion for the next firmware :
SFTP support

Nowadays, many hosting services only allow secure file transfers, and don't support FTP any more.

Thanks !

I'm not sure if this is still being updated, but I would like an audio alert option if a speaker is hooked up (I don't think the device alone can make a peep).

Ideally we can upload a wav to the device.  I know space would probably be limited but even if it's something that is small say 500k and can loop x # of times.

If wav/audio file is not possible, then to be able to send a beep.  Hopefully if that is possible indicate how many beeps and maybe being able to set a status period before the event triggers again.

I'm surprised I never hear a request for audio events, the device has speaker support.  Right now I'm mucking with sending an email to a monitored account and having another device monitor that inbox and play whatever if email is from webcam.  But I'm doing this thinking, I wish this thing could beep...

I would not use "(" special characters then.
I already use a dlink DCS-933L that does not cause problems with the font "(" it works perfectly. I use a router with FTP server that has the path that can not modify the character "(" so I'm forced to use it.) I do not understand why Both this difference between the 933L and the 942L. Of course if I had an alternative I would not have made that request.
