Time/Date Overlay on FTP?
« on: November 17, 2013, 10:25:10 AM »

The manual seems to suggest that this is possible, but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to do this without postprocessing.  I would love to be able to do this from the camera itself.  Any ideas??

I think this is a request for a new firmware version.

Not sure on that though

Do you have it overlay'ed on the live video?

I would guess you have logged into the firmware and found the option?

Yes it is on live video but that was not the question.  FTP or email would be great.  Maybe have to lookup the newer models?

From my understanding the DCS-930L does not include the option for a time stamp on saved video/images. My DCS-932L, which is of the same generation as the DCS-930L does not have this capability, while my DCS-931L does include this option in the web UI under MAINTENANCE > Admin > Server Settings > OSD Time/.

Yeah, neither the 930 or 932 support  time stamp.  Guess my next ones will be newer for this feature.

I recommend that you phone contact your regional D-Link support office and ask for help and information regarding this. We find that phone contact has better immediate results over using email.
Let us know how it goes please.

The state of software is abysmal. People keep adding to the "wish list" without anything ever happening. A date stamp is perhaps one line of code somewhere and they STILL haven't done it? What is a security camera good for without date/time stamp?

Bear in mind that the ftp'd image filename can carry the datetime information -
     typical filename:  Cam1_2013051109150701.jpg
Although it would be nice if Dlink added separators in the firmware, we suggested this long ago ...

This javascript snippet acts on the filename:
txt= filename.substring(0,9)+\"-\"+filename.substring(9,13)+\"-\"+filename.substring(13,17)+\"-\"+filename.substring(17,21) ;
The result is better:  Cam1_2013-0511-0915-0701.jpg
Could get a bit fancier:
txt= filename.substring(0,9)+\"-\"+filename.substring(9,11)+\"/\"+filename.substring(11,13)+\"-\"+filename.substring(13,15)+\":\"+filename.substring(15,17)+\"-\"+filename.substring(17,21) ;
The result is then:  Cam1_2013-05/11-09:15-0701.jpg    ( I have not tested this second one!)

Why would you buy one that doesn't have it, if that is important to you?

There probably is no on board clock or enough memory to Sync with online servers like the other cameras do.
