Reolink Year in Review 2023
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.43 Released
Is there a way to upload images and not video to an FTP server address? I don't have bandwidth to support efficient video uploading, but uploading an image or "snap" on a set schedule would be great.
In my setup, I get 264 video and a jpg. I get about 3 jpg's and hour. I didn't see anywhere to specify one or the other or change the frequency. Definitely could use some enhanced firmware with more setting to control this. I may need to resort to writing a script to pull jpeg from the camera, since my other cameras send a jpg once a second.
It appears that the frequency of writing out jpg's (and 264 video) is controlled by the file length of the video in the ftp settings. I changed my file length from 1024 to 50. I now get a jpg approximately once a minute from the camera to my ftp server.It also pushes the smaller video file, but I just delete those. It would be nice to turn of the video files to save the wireless bandwidth to the ftp server.
Good catch! I'll try that when I get back from vacation!Now if I could easily get the jpeg size down below 150K and remove the video, I could send weather images directly to wunderground.Right now I have to ftp to a Raspberry Pi which applies imagemagick to get the image size down, then ftp to wunderground. It works, but I'd rather just ftp directly like other webcams.
Hi, any news about this, I need to upload only one jpeg every hour not more.. even I select file (and not video) in ftp config menu it uploads videos ??
I have the same issue - selecting 'Image only' in the File Type under FTP settings appears to be ignored and both a .jpg and an .mp4 file is being uploaded. What's up with the firmware? A fix to this issue is needed!So - here's something to look at; if you're running the Reolink desktop application / service, it seems that you have additional control over the FTP configuration and it appears to override any settings that you've made by connecting to a camera directly via its IP interface - in other words, if you have specified 'File only' directly in the camera's configuration, but have a different configuration under the Reolink's desktop application - then the settings from the desktop application are the ones that are being followed. I just confirmed this across several different camera models and they are all now behaving the way that I've got them configured via the Reolink desktop application - FTP'ing images only, according to my schedule, with no videos being uploaded via FTP. I recommend using the Reolink desktop application to look at your FTP settings for your camera(s) and use it to configure as you wish rather than using the built-in configuration accessed directly via the camera(s) IP address.
@billing_392289715716327 Can you please let me know the model of cameras you tested out? I never tested out that scenario. Thanks.
