Reolink Year in Review 2023
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.43 Released
Recently I've found DynDNS to be too expensive when compared to google domains so I'd like to formerly request the capability to configure cameras that support DDNS to configure use for google domains in addition to no-ip and dyndns.Thank you,
I have a Pixel 5 with the following Versions and I can no longer connect to any of my 19 different Reolink cameras if I'm over mobile (LTE/5G) networks and can only connect if my phone is on Wi-Fi. I have tested the following combos:Pixel 3 with app 4.28 (latest in app store): WORKSSamsung S20 (app uknown): WORKSWindows App on PC (8.7.3): WORKSPixel 5 with app 4.29.X: DOES NOT WORKPixel 5 with latest app (184.108.40.206): DOES NOT WORKPixel 6 with latest app (220.127.116.11): DOES NOT WORKThe fact that the cameras are geographically distanced and use different internet provides and routers rules out networking. The fact that I can connect to these cameras still with other phones and PCs remotely leads me to believe this is a new Android / Hardware issue that needs to be resolved.I have uninstalled the app, cleared caches, re-installed and tried to add cameras back multiple times and nothing is working. I simply can only connect to the cameras if the pixel 5 or pixel 6 is connected to Wi-Fi.. Both use Google Fi network. However the Pixel 3 does as well as its working... I ONLY connect to the cameras using UID so its not that. Also I've verified a hundred times the app has the permissions it needs and there is nothing blocking (roaming, or data throttling or anything) that would prevent the app from using mobile data. This really renders the cameras useless if I can't connect to them to see what is happening while I'm out of pocket and not at a convenient Wi-Fi location to connect and see the live view or pull the playback video. Pertinent Pixel 5 Info:Android Version: 12Android Security Update: June 5, 2022Google Play System Update: June 1, 2022Kernel Version: 4.19.224-g1060324a551f-ab8460318To be fair, this has been broken for about 2 months now and I was hoping it was just a glitch in the Reolink app but I think its more persistent. I know I could port forward separate ports and connect using DDNS setups but I refuse to go through that effort when Reolink already has a P2P option that *should* be working. Did Android roll out a change to block P2P connections over mobile? Is this a Google Fi only issue? I'd love to know if other people are having these problems as well.Cameras include combinations of E1s, RLCs, some PIRs and a Duo and all of them are running the latest firmware available for them.
@markarron9_504005354344625 Yup. Myself and a friend of mine have the same issue. Documented it in this post, sorry I didn't see this one first: https://community.reolink.com/topic/3755/connection-and-streaming-broken-over-mobile-dataDo you still have the issue? What phone and provider do you have?
@reolink-fiona I already have a support ticket: (#828840) about this issue but didn't get any traction indicating that Reolink was actively trying to solve or emulate this issue, hence why I've gone to the community forum to see if anyone else is having this issue. I've moved the app status pics into another response on that email thread.
Followed @John_350143387672724's link and now my cameras are working again. Thanks for the post man!
