Video library issues only plays latest selected video on iOS

Arlo app only plays latest selected video no matter what video I select from my library. For example, if I select a video from earlier in the day, it plays the latest one. It was working fine until I updated to latest version of the app. iPhone app ver 2.7.1.

Strange camera activity

I have 5 cameras in total , only tend to keep 3 active, 2 of them get a lot of use. The last 10 days or so the cameras are loosing internet and going on and off line. I’ve rebooted the Wi-Fi and router serversal times, but it still keeps happening. BT checked the line and say it’s fine....
The really strange thing that has happened the last couple of days is that 2 cameras in completely different areas of the house started to show the same one view! So one facing back door one facing front door, suddenly both are showing the front door! Then today when I click on a clip from an activation, it shows the same clip over, not relevant to the activation I have chosen . No matter what clip I chose it only shows this one clip. Has anyone had this happen before?? I’m concerned my system had been hacked...

Arlo App Update - All Videos Play Recent Recording

Arlo recently had an upgrade to their app on IOS.  Now when i got to my library and click on a specific video, that video does not play.  The app plays the latests video taken.  How am i supposed to look back on videos if any video i click on takes me to the most recent one?

Arlo App Update - All Videos Play Recent Recording

@jennifH

 

I am unable to reproduce this on either of my iOS devices, it's working as expected on my end. I'm using an iPhone 8, Arlo app version 2.7.1. Can you provide more information such as the device you are using, the iOS and Arlo app version? I'm assuming you are trying to access the videos through the library?

Hi Steve,
If you mean turn the Netgear router on and off again? I’ve done that almost daily 😊

Re: Strange camera activity

It will probably be fastest to remove all devices from Settings, My Devices and start fresh. While a PITA, it usually clears out weirdnesses.

Problem after latest update

Since Arlo updated yesterdate I am having a problem. When I go to library now and click on a video it only shows the latest video. Like if I have 5 videos listed today and want to view the oldest one it will only show the newest. So in order to actually view the video I want I would have to delete all other videos. I hope this makes sense. Have had our cameras over 2 years and this has never happened before.

I just got off the phone with support. They said it is a known issue and their team is working to fix it. Give it a couple of days to be resolved she said.
