For the past few nights, I have been having trouble viewing the live stream. It'll work for a while but then I noticed that the baby hasn't moved around in a while, so I stopped and restarted the live stream to make sure it's still working fine and got the error "The streaming service is reporting that the device is not streaming. Please check if the device is connected to the Internet else reboot it and try again." However, this is simply not true because I still get audio alerts! The live stream will be stuck like this until I go reboot the camera. This is very frustrating because 1. I don't know whether a peaceful, sleeping baby means a happy baby or a failed connection, and 2. the camera will not try to reconnect until I go unplug and replug the camera back, risking to wake a sleeping baby. The live stream won't work on any devices that we have tried: browser, iPhones, tablets, etc. Is there a way to fix this?
Also, can we please have a way to see the current time of the image so we know how stale the stream is? Because connectivity issues do happen once in a while no matter how robust your network is and stale stream seems to be the norm instead of an exception.

I've been having the same issue. Rebooting the device doesn't work. Sometimes I'll come back after an hour and it will miraculously be working again but I need a constant streaming service!
I’m having the same issue here.
It works for a few days and then all of a sudden I get the streaming service error. Camera still connected as I can go into the device settings and motion settings.
What is the fix ?
I'm having the same problem, but even more pernicious: live video & audio are up-to-date in a web broswer that has been continuously streaming, but any new connection attempt from another device results in the dreaded error “The streaming service reports that the device is not streaming...”
AM having the same problem and I'm so dissapointed with Arlo Baby's Monitor. I've spent the whole day trying to fix the connection issue and I'm beginning to think it's more of a hardware issue which is something beyond me.
I bought 2 baby monitor (Different brand, thank god) and the cheaper brand is the one which is not giving me any problems at all.
Arlo please try to fix this connection issue. Everything I log on to my DESKTOP it says ' The streaming service is reporting that the device is not streaming '. On my Iphone it works.. sometimes. I'll have to go reset everything and it works after that. Unfortunately after a while it happens again. This is unreliable and worse your baby monitor is one of the most expensive in the market.
Please let me know how to fix it or else find a way for me to return it with credit.
I'm having the same issue where I keep getting the error "The streaming service is reporting that the device is not streaming. Please check if the device is connected to the Internet else reboot it and try again". I'm not sure how to get around this issue as I've reset it multiple times. Further, my camera will not record video even through there is obvious movement within a 6 hour period.
The LED light is blue as if the camera is connected and should be streaming/recording. I've reset it a couple of times this morning, it will work for about 30 minutes and then sporadically have the same streaming error.
Same issues for me. I have a tablet working, but the desktop and browser do not work. I have tried different browsers and when the message comes up for one they all have the message. All it takes is for me to go to video history and when I come back to the video feed it has that message. Quite frustrating. I bought it when he was younger, but now that he is older and in his own room I really want it to work. Sometimes the tablet does not work either and sits their buffering, we really need for it to connect directly to our devices and secondary to the arlo mothership.
I have great internet and a great wireless network and have no issues with any other devices. We need this fixed ASAP.
Have tested my internet and moved the thing around his nursery. We have dual band, works the same on both the 5 and 2.4. Even purchased two separate wifi extenders just in case (his room was measuring at 300mbps+, which should be sufficient for streaming). Everything else works in there including laptops - where we tested and had Netflix 4k running just fine.
Spent over $200 on this because we wanted something reliable from a reliable company... And I dont trust it at all. Is there an update coming to fix this issue or can we send this thing back? It appears to be a global issue that your company had not yet addressed...
What device are you using that is having this behavior? (iOS, Android, PC)
Do you see the same behavior regardless of the device you're using?
Getting the same error on any Windows 10 PC using any browser (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Internet Explorer, etc). Have noticed that whenever this happens I have to open the stream on my iPhone first (which never has a problem loading the stream), wait about 5 minutes with it streaming on the iPhone, and then will be able to load the stream on the PC (using the same account).
Please contact the Arlo Support Team to further investigate this issue. You will find several options for contacting support in the provided link.
After wasting over three hours on the phone with Netgear’s useless “Arlo Support Team” — and still experiencing repeated instances when live streaming just won’t work — I’ve returned all of my Arlo cameras for a full refund and have bought a Logitech Circle 2 camera.
Live streaming works great with Logitech.
