Major Camera Stream Stability and Quality Improvements:
  • Fixed an issue where, after selecting mJPEG as primary stream, the Camera Control still plays H.264 when the stream reloads;
  • Fixed an issue where the camera stream does not remember user selection (mJPEG or H.264) during current session;
  • Fixed an issue where the H.264 stream restarts uncontrollably;
  • Fixed an issue where the video is not synchronized (Relay and Local);
  • Fixed an issue where Audio is not correctly decoded on some mobile devices and the H.264 stream crashes;
  • Request Display to stay awake when the Camera is Streaming;
  • Use only 480p stream on Mobile, because the hardware is not able to decode 30fps HD stream;
  • Preserve Camera Aspect Ratio on Video Stream Player;
  • Correctly exit Fullscreen when the Camera Stream is Fullscreen and the user selects the "Back" Hardware button;
  • A timeout of 10 seconds was added to "Retrieve H.264 Stream URI". After this time the camera automatically goes to mJPEG;
  • A new option on Settings -> General was added to control the update interval for cameras preview;

Other Fixes and Improvements:

  • Fixed an issue where Devices are not correctly sorted by Name on Scenes Triggers and Actions;
  • Fixed an issue where Alerts Filtering is not properly done (does not take into account Controller Time Zone);
  • Fixed an issue where Camera Recordings do not display the correct date and time.
