Also, I just noticed this issue over the weekend.  

 

One more thing of note: I just tried Foirefox, anmd after being prompted to allow Adove Flash, I AM now able to see full screen.  That's the good news. The bad: the picture is def not HD.  It's fuzzy and grainy.

Hey @bizco,

 

What browser are you running on your MacBook or iMac? Have you tried clearing your cache and cookies from your browser or trying a different browser?

As the title states, when trying to view cameras in full screen mode on my computer I only get half the video. The top half is cut off. Displays fine when not in full-screen mode.

 

Anybody else having this issue?Front door full screen.pngFront door pic.png

This is not a cache issue. I really wish that wasn't the default go to for addressing issues. The update over the past weekend caused this issue and it's everyone on a mac that uses Safari. There are numerous posts about this, mine included. I wish Netgear would just be honest in the fact they released a faulty update acoss all their various apps and be forthcoming on an timeline for a fix. We are all waiting and getting angrier.

I have the same problem on my Mac.  All was fine until I added a second camera and the new app update.

Others have complained about this on both Mac and PC. I've tested it on my W10 laptop with Chrome and it works fine. I'd suggest opening a case with support here to raise awareness.

Open a case with support here. More cases gets more action.

Full screen mode for live video deosn't display p[roperly in Safari.  It displays only partial view and seems shifted off the top of the screen with no way to move it down.  This worked last week.

sounds like an issue with your device, have you tried the web based Arlo login? and if so what were the results of that ?

Also what are your Arlo camras & base station firmware ?
What Arlo software version are you using ?
What device are you using and it's OS version ?


If You Got Em....I'll Chew Em!

I'm having the same problem. It also work ok for me last week. What ever update they did ruined full screen view under safari. It works just fine in both Chrome and Firefox. I even tried to reinstall flash but that didnt fix the problem.  Still only see half the videoo in full screen.

Having the issue both at work and at home. Work is a PC - Windows 7 and at home it's a MacBook running whatever the latest version of OSX is, just updated last week I think.

 

I'm using Chrome. I tested it out using internet explorer at the office and i am able to view full screen. Appears it's a problem with Chrome.

I use Chrome almost exclusively and am not seeing this. Can't say why some have the issue and not others.

Using a Macbook Pro and have the same problem with Safari. When I switched to Chrome, I got a message that my flash was not up to date. (I checked and it is up to date) There was a place to click to update the flash player. When I clicke on it, I was able to display the full screen on Chrome but still can't do it on Safari.

OK, I tried Chrome on my MacBook Air. I received a message to update the Flash Player, which I did, and now full view works, but only when using Chrome. Safari and FireFox still display half of the full view.

I have the same problem since a couple of week. Don't think it is a problem with the unit, rather a webpage issue since the display is the same with all my 3 cameras. It only appears when i want to watch full screen, and not in multi unit mode.

To get rid of that message in Chrome, paste chrome://flags/#enable-ephemeral-flash-permission into the URL bar and disable it. Restart Chrome.

Expanding live view on Mac desktop/laptop only displays on bottom half of frame and now I can't change any mode settings on my cameras. I'm using a Macbook Pro running High Seirra 10.13.6. Has been working good till last week. Tried using Google Chrome on my Mac and all works OK. This seems to be a Mac issue and started with the App update for iphone for some reason affecting Web based viewing.
