I generally tend to use the thumbs page - its ideal for seeing activity at a glance. I wouldn't mind if the videos page got dropped.billw wrote:Upgrade available - thumbs page can select by days or all.boomlikethat wrote: Been thinking about this for a bit, and that's a request to have a "select all" button for the thumbs area. The reason I ask is this. Because I live on a busy street, I get a lot of hits each day (cars, etc). That's to be expected on my end.
However, after manually scanning the videos, archiving the ones I need for further review, I would use the "delete all". What I was not aware of is that I think it also deletes any recordings that are still in process. In the previous app I used, I could select all, and then de-select ones I wanted to further review.
I think with a "select all" button, it would only select those completed in the thumbs area.
Please correct me if I'm wrong on this, or whatever. Thanks!
Delete Day can delete a recording in progress and that is a problem. And deleting by selection
will only delete videos you can see on the thumbs page, so as you are saying, that seems to
me a better way to do it.
So I've removed the "Delete Day" and "Archive Day" buttons from the thumbs page and now
all deleting/archiving is done by selections. The delete day from the videos page can still
be a problem and I'll be looking at that.
One thing I'm wondering, is anybody using the videos page preferentially over the thumbs page?
For my part, I find since I added selections to the thumbs page I rarely manage videos from
the videos page anymore, and once I get to adding thumbs for manual and timelapse
recordings, I expect I'll never be using the videos page. So if nobody speaks up I may end up
getting rid of the videos page.
I do have a request surrounding the thumbs page. Background: I have my pi uploading the videos to dropbox (rather than leaving them on the pi). So what I've done is manually hack the thumbs page so that it links to the dropbox URL of the video. Unfortunately upgrading causes this to be lost. It would be great if a parameter could be provided in the configuration to allow the prefix of the video URL to be set. e.g. if not set then use localhost as usual, otherwise use [configuredUrlPrefix]/[videoFilename].
Btw, burst detection seems to be working well. So far I haven't seen any missed events - many thanks for your great work on this!
