Re: iOS app 2.7.1

Re: iOS app 2.7.1

@ArloAlex,

When you are unable to play any clip besides the newest one: Are these clips on a camera where you are the admin owner?
Yes, on partner’s iPhone 5s using V2.7.0 App using same login. I.e. no shared users.

Re: iOS app 2.7.1

@ArloAlex,
Just to cloud the issue being experienced here, I checked my partner’s iPad Air 2 (uses my login) and the arlo App was already updated to v2.7.1. It will play the selected videos correctly. iPad has iOS v12.1.1 installed.

My partners iPhone 5s (uses my arlo login) has arlo App v2.7.0 with iOS v12.1.1 installed. It will play the selected video correctly.

My iPhone 5s (uses my arlo login) has arlo App v2.7.1 with iOS v12.1.2 installed. It will NOT play the selected video correctly.

Re: iOS app 2.7.1

Apple just released IOS 12.1.3 for IPad and IPhone. Let’s hope that resolves most issues.

As they say...”Hope, is not a method.”.  It did not solve any of my problems as far as I can tell.

Re: iOS app 2.7.1

I'm also having the same #4 issue.  On library page, it will only play most recent video that is displayed.  Filter by a specific camera, same issue - only most recent video is played back regardless of which one is selected.

I can play additional videos from the list by sliding left/right while it's playing, but that's the only workaround that I've found.

 

App version: 2.7.1

IOS version: 12.1.2

Device: IPhone SE

 

I'm the admin.  I have two other shared accounts.

Re: iOS app 2.7.1

With this latest update (2.7.1),  I am experiencing problem #4; same clip plays back, regardless of camera tried or clip tapped.

 

Here are the answers to your questions:

 

iOS device: iPhone 8

iOS version: 12.1.3

Arlo Base Station: Arlo Pro 2; Firmware: 1.12.0.1_27940 Hardware: VMB4000r3

Arlo Cameras Observed on: All

I do not have an Arlo Smart Plan

Yes, this is still occurring as of 1-29-19.

 

I am the admin and have one shared account; the shared account is on my husband’s android phone, and he does not have any problems viewing videos.

 

It is interesting to note that while this issue is happening on my iPhone 8, it is NOT happening on my iPad Air 2 (I sign in as admin on my iPad too).

Re: iOS app 2.7.1

Hi @Shavy, @Ht70, @Dannybear, @capswatcheye, @rogerrabt, @M3B, and @PaulC25 

 

We believe that we have resolved the issue where you can only play the first clip in your library ("problem #4", per this thread) - can you please install the latest version of the iOS app (v 2.7.2) and confirm that this is fixed for you? 

 

If you are still seeing #4, do let me know here - thank you!

Re: iOS app 2.7.1

It is fixed for me in the new release

 

iPhone SE / iOS 12.1.3

 

Thanks.

Re: iOS app 2.7.1

Is version 2.72 available to all?  When I click on my firmware it responds that no updates are available. My current version is v 2.7.1

It isn’t “firmware”, it is the iOS or Android app.

 

If you are talking about the iOS app, I have often found the system thinks my Arlo app is up to date when it isn’t.  To fix that I go into the App Store, search for the Arlo app, click on the app to look at the details and after that it seems to recognize that I’m not running the latest version of the app and lets me upgrade.

Re: iOS app 2.7.1

Hi @BillRin , I recommend checking the App Store app, and looking at your "Updates" section.

 

2.7.2 should be present in that Updates list for you now. If it is not there, please try this link from your iPhone or iPad to go directly to the app in the store : https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/arlo/id925911312?mt=8

Re: iOS app 2.7.1

Yes, thank you all. I did get it by going to App Store  unfortunately, my preview screens are still black on my IPad Air 2 and it takes about 25 seconds to access library. Everything works fine in my IPhone 6.

I can confirm this did not fix the performance problem with the app, just the missing record and snapshot buttons on shared cameras.  My 11” iPad Pro takes 40 seconds to fully start up the app.  My wife’s iPad Air 2 takes closer to two minutes and has the black thumbnails as you said...plus frequent crashes.
