I’m sure nothing will come of this, but is there any newer software that can actually convert the .264 files on the Zmodo units (mine is the SPoE wired version) into a format a regular desktop computer can utilize?
I had a window broken recently on my house. I was out of town and it’s not really feasible to watch through a solid week of video across two different cameras. The native video browser is too slow (good 2-second lag every time it detects motion) and can only do up to what it claims is 8x.
I’ve downloaded every poorly-translated piece of software I can find, including AVIGenerator, NetDVR, Video Player Watermark, Playback ZMODO v5, General Player, ZPlayer… nothing can convert the damn files.
Trying to convert the file manually on the unit is a pain, since you can only select up to 10 recordings at a time. Thanks to a flag on my house, there may be upwards of 300 recordings per day.
I don’t understand how such a basic function can be so impossible to actually perform. How is there no working system in place for getting a useful AVI file on computers without manually converting each file on the machine?
