Arlo Baby - Gapless playback of white noise
The Arlo Baby currently doesn't play "continuous" white noise. Every track stops for 1 second, before playing the next track, including if the same track is played on a loop. The track "white noise" lasts for 15 seconds, so the "white noise" is broken by gaps every 15 seconds. A similar track "canyon river" lasts 1min9sec, but breaks every 1min9seconds.
Customer support (live chat) has confirmed that this is not yet flagged as an issue in Netgear's systems, which I find very suprising. A community forum post here suggests the matter was first raised in September 2018, and Netgear has yet to provide a solution (https://community.arlo.com/t5/Arlo-Baby/Arlo-Baby-white-noise-loop-not-continuous/td-p/1634782).
White noise is essentially useless if it has gaps.
The solution is simple - please fix the firmware to provide gapless playback.
We currently only use the white noise. So colour me surprised and slightly delighted that after all this time the white noise is now a continuous loop without any interruptions.
It took a while but somebody on the team finally got this right. Well done!
We appreciate everyone's patience regarding this. We would like to say that this issue is now resolved. Make sure you are running the latest Arlo Baby firmware version, which is 22.214.171.124_808.
If you're still experiencing the issue where the white noise is not working properly, please let us know.
The fix was specifically on the white noise loop problem. If you're having problems with other sounds, please contact the Support Team to further investigate this issue. You will find several options for contacting support in the provided link.
My white noise still has a break in the audio.
I have confirmed that I am using the correct firmware.
Please let me know what my next step should be.
Also, re: only one audio track being "fixed" -i think it's a bit ridiculous you're expecting us to open a new support case for each audio track we use. Its been over 12mo and our products are still not fit for purpose.
We have tested the Arlo Baby with the latest firmware version (Arlo Baby FW 126.96.36.199_808) with the white noise and was unable to replicate the issue where the break is still happening. If you're having problems, please contact the Support Team to help you with this further. You'll find different ways to contact support in the provided link.
