D-Link DCS-942L :: How To Copy Video Files From SD To PC
May 14, 2013
I record videos after motion detection on the cameras sd-card. Is there a way to copy all the files from sd-card to the pc? I wasn't able to copy them with the web-interface. I don't just want to delete the videos from time to time. I also want to archive them local.
Can the DCS-942L be configured to send the "Video Clip Notification" email video attachments as MP4 as opposed to AVI? The iPhone can not play AVI files, so I'm forced to use the snapshot feature which misses a lot of the motion. I have a Linksys WVC80N that allows me to send video email attachments in MP4 format that works great, but I would like to have this ability on my two D-link DCS-942L cameras as well. If there is no way to send MP4 video email attachments... is this something that could be added as part of a firmware upgrade?
i play with my brandnew 942L Camera and everything works fine. The only thing i cannot get to work is to play recorded videos from the playlist on my mobile phone.I use myDLink Lite and the video-settings in the 942L for profile 4 (mobile devices) is set to MPEG4, 320x240, 5 BPS, CBR Quality, 384kb/s, "3gpp".
I have just installed two DCS-942L cameras and uses MyDlink. The live video is OK from MyDlink, but when I log on to the cameras from "Advanced Settings" the live video is just a black screen, no matter what video profile I select. Like wise I can't select motion detect area, because there is just a black screen.I have tried on tree different computers. What can be wrong?
the 942L is up and running but I ain't getting no email snapshots nor video clips.I think the menu for setting up the "Video Clip" and "Snapshot" is severely lacking info for users like myself; what to type in the smtp field, the sender or recipient email fields, and especially not username and password. Do I put my email username and password there, or my MyDlink login email and password?
I am thinking of buying the DSC-942L, I already have "2" DSC-932L. I wanted to put it in my front door and set it up so it record to mine SD card 24x7. My questions are, when the SD card get full, does it overwrite the old files?
Ive formatted the sd card, enabled video/image recording, but no files show up on the sd management screen. I tried to select a folder to save the files to from the live video screen, but nothing pops up/opens when I click on the folder button. I'm using the google chrome browser w the latest java update on an xp box.
I have my 942L set up for continuous recording. When I look at the files, the camera will record between 20 and 55 seconds, end that file and start another. The next file then starts between a few seconds and as much as 40 seconds later leaving a gap in the video recoding. The file sizes are all different and the amount of record time is different for each file.
Also, about 80% of the time, the time increments a few seconds on a playback and then stops updating even though the video is longer.
I have a network using windows home server 1, with 3 computers hooked up to it. Two of them work fine but the 3rd computer cannot successfully copy a file to the network. However, I can copy a file from the network to computer 3.This started suddenly about a week ago and there were no driver updates or anything changed that would cause this. When I copy a file from the network to computer 3 I get about 80mb/second. When I try the reverse, it pauses and after about 5 seconds I get a message saying:There is a problem accessing \serverserverfolder. Make sure you are connected to the network and try again.If I try to copy a small file of a few megabytes it will copy though.
I need to do a backup on our laptop prior to beginning the malware removal process. I need to move 22GB+. There is plenty of room on our desktop to store the files.Would it be best to use file sharing between the 2 PCs? They are both USB connected to the same router. Or, is it possible to transfer the files by connecting them directly to each other via USB?
I just got the camera today, looks good, works good, at least so far.. BUT I was SURE this camera had a battery and charge function!? What's the point of having this camera if I can't place it say inside my car or in the garage (where it needs to be hidden, alas I can't use any cords!)?
Basic info: SBS 2008 (64bit), XP-sp3 (32bit) workstations, gigabit switch, SEP. App is Sage Masterbuilder.Network config: Server is 1gb to switch over CAT6. All the workstations are 100mb over CAT5. SEP is set to exclude all pertinent files on both the server and workstations.Problem: The program is called MasterBuilder and does job costing and much more. In the job costing feature there is an option to "Compute" job costing. In version 16.x, when the "Compute" was performed the task was done very quickly. After an upgrade to version 17.x it is very SLOW. According to tech support, our network is at fault since it is a database function over the network.Troubleshooting done: Tech support blamed our network speed (100mb) and switch. We had a Netgear 100mb switch so we replaced it with a GB switch however the cabling will not support GB. Being a managed switch I set all the ports to 100mb except the server port. Even tried the server plugged into a 100mb port and no change. I am confident there are no speed issues on our network. All other programs perform flawlessly. ACAD, Exchange, data transfers and many other high data use programs work perfectly. I updated the network card drivers in the server as well. There are no performance or resource issues on the workstations. I monitored the network traffic at the workstations, server and switch with no issues and about 2.5% utilization during the slow "Compute" process. The switch shows no errors at all, no collisions, no dropped packets, nothing. I also disabled the SEP.
During testing and while the slow "Compute" was going on, I copied a large folder (400mb) from the server to the workstations see the impact on network utilization. As soon as I start the copy process the "Compute" process speeds up to normal and zips by as it should. As soon as I cancel the copy process the "Compute" drops right back to very slow.
I am trying to research the possiblity of backing up IOS and configurations from an Etherswitch module, and being able to store the files onto the Host Router's flash (3925 ISR). and then being able to recover that IOS and configuration, in case I have to replace the Etherswitch Module.
I have a friends laptop running Windows, either Vista or 7 where the video subsystem isn't working. But it is running and I plugged it into my network/router. I would like to get to the hard drive to get files off. I have both Linux Mint and Windows 7 on my computer.
I've rolled back my E4200 router to the old firmware 126.96.36.199, then set up a media server.It generally works (e.g. it streams pre-existing media files to other devices). I can copy to this external drive small (say, < 1 MB) files. The drive has enough free space. However, I cannot copy to this external drive large (e.g. 700 MB) files.
Two computers (XP and Win7) connected on office LAN, cisco 2960, not same switches, but all in the same rack, and link togeter, same IP subnet, tried to copy some kind of 26G files from one to another, using Windows share folders, and it showed need 23 hours to finish the copying.It's not the first time, actually we always experienced very slow speed when copying files on Windows share folders. Did not see any particualler message on the switch. ports are all full/100m.
every-time i try to play a file directly from my computer through the network to my Samsung tv downstairs regardless of the file format it says file format no supported though when i plug the same file in with the usb directly through the back of the TV it plays the without a hitch
i have a linux server PC and its containing videos, tutorials etc. but my Question how can i play that video files in my browser like you tube??? now its working like non-streaming, jus download and play through any player like!!but my purpose is play videos throgh firefox browser..
The company has a glitch that they are not sure if they will fix so you can't record with mac. I am unable to return my cameras to staples and Im out the money for the memory cards I opened. It says you can record with MAC clearly on the box!!!! Bad business practice for STAPLES and DLINK.
I just purchased 2 cameras and have one set up. Firmware V 1.12
Works great on my android phone and connects fairly quick. When I try to see the camera image on my PC with windows 7 64 bit, I log into my d-link and it shows the camera name on left side of screen, then says Java run time environment not installed.I uninstalled java 5 times and re installed both 32 and 64 bit but keeps coming back as not installed. Camera is set up wirelessly through a Belkin router, so far no EZ config
As DCS-942L IP cam is compatible with "NVSCGI APIs" (search this string on a search engine and you will find some useful PDF docs), many features of this IP Cam may be enabled or disabled using any web browsers, for example we can manage the motion detect.
I just bought new 942L (HW Rev3, 1.12 FW) and the only profile which is used to stream to iPhone or Web browser in mydlink is profile 3 which is limited to JPEG. Is there some way how to change the profile to be used for streams or is there a way how to make to profile 3 something else then JPEG?
The DCS942 (which is right near but facing the other direction) is about 2 meters away from one of the 932's but the 942 keeps going offline - it comes back on and off probably 4-5 time during a 24hr period.
This is most frustrating - it would look like Wifi signal strength could be the issue but the other 932 right near it doesn't have this issue?
I initially set it up for static IP, which was a mistake for reasons I probably don't need to go into here. Having recognized my mistake, I've been trying to hard reset it so I can convince it to acquire its IP address by DHCP, but each time I reset it and return to the "First, select your camera" screen in the setup wizard, I'm faced with a single choice: the device as I first set it up for static IP. I don't seem to be able to convince it to give up that erroneous static IP address.I have read the FAQ section on hard reset. I've held down the reset button for a lot longer than 6 seconds while the cam was connected to power and ethernet, and I've watched it go through the sequence of flashing blue reset and WPS lights until it settles down, but this doesn't change the situation, evidently.
