Same problem here , I go to library tap a video and some other video plays in the library list. Also still have the problem in modes as I have 2 base stations in modes sometimes base 1 will be on top of the list and base 2 will be under it like it should sometimes opening the modes base 2 will be on top and base 1 will be under it, flip flop.

Same here.  Arlo, is there any chance you could put the previous "legacy" app back on the Play Store as an option until you get this latest version fixed?  It's really difficult to use as is.

Been since December 24th, the last Arlo update and still can't pull up the correct video in the library. Arlo off-shore people tell me Arlo knows about this and "are working on it", not sure I believe them. I love my Arlo cameras until there is a problem and then probably some of the worst customer care protocols in the business. I'm confident I'm not the only person with a Samsung Galaxy S9 and having issues with the library.

Exact same issue.
Would have expected a fix by now?

Arlo should provide a category for app related issues if it is non-camera or non-basestation issue.

When I try to view the videos under library in the app, it will show me the same video (within the same day) no matter which video I select. Assuming that I have video taken by cam 1, 2, 3, even when I choose the recording of cam 3, it will show me cam 1. The thumbnails shows the correct camera recording. Just that for playback, it keeps playing the same video no matter which one I chose.

I took a screen video to show what happened. But will not post here.

I can confirm that the videos are properly captured as I can view them correctly via web browser. Just having problem with the app.

I'm using Android v9.0, app version is 2.12.2_27010

Thanks @StuBee! This seems to be a good way to get around the issues until Arlo fix it.

I tried it and it works. Just click on the video you want to view. If it is the wrong video, swipe left and right again to view.

Apparently, the selection UI is broken on the video list. But swiping left and right while in the video works.

Thanks for the contributions.

HelloArlo and StuBee are the winners!

Stu for the answer, and Hello for explaining it again - I need to be told twice before it sinks in.

I can, once again, see the Postie's smiling face, rather than just his backside 😀

Thanks that is a good workaround!
Swiping is definitely the way forward...or back.

I have an Arlo Pro2 Setup using multiple cameras. Two of the cameras are triggered by the same event. When I look at the footage using my PC the Library shows the footage from each camera correctly. However, when I look at the camera footage using the latest Android App the second camera shows the footage from the first camera instead! In the App the second camera shows a still from the correct footage but on clicking on it the library footage is from the first camera. This only started happening after installing the latest version of the App.

Anyway I can get a link to the old app. Whatever happened on the 25th rendered arlo almost useless

There seems to have been a further APP update that has resolved this issue - on my version.

Which app version is working for you?  2.12.3_27015 still isn't working correctly for me (broken Library filter), and I'm not finding a more recent version on the Play Store.

2.12.3_27015 is the version that's working for me now, so unsure what to say..

"Thanks to another member here I was able to download a previous version of the app and everything is back to the way it was before the 12/23/2019 update." 
Please advise as to how you were able to download the previous version of the app (and install it!)
After uninstalling and reinstalling the android v. 2.12.3_27015 app, I also have been unsuccessful in getting Arlo customer support to provide any constructive solution to this issue, other than their saying:
1. "We're working on a solution" and
2. "We are hoping to have the new app released within 5 business days."
Thanks so much!

I'm hoping there is a solution fast I've already told a friend to hold off on buying a unit until software app for android is resolved. Not only is library out of order, delay in recording is so long now I miss subjects walking past my house completely and date and time from landscape view no longer functions

I absolutely wouldn't recommend the system to anyone now. Semi-pro pricing with amateur delivery.

Still having the same issue for over a month now.  I frequently try rebooting the system as well as uninstall and reinstall the app, all of which has failed to fixed the issue.  I've been told by Arlo that the problem has been forwarded to a "higher tier for immediate action" but I'm still waiting for a fix.  If there was no issue with the old version of the app, why not roll back that version so that we can at least view our cloud the way it was intended to be viewed?!?!  

 

@Kruz219 , I'm curious how you installed a previous version of the app. 

 

I have Arlo Pro VMS4430-100NAS (I couldn't select it in the "Model" window above).  My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S6 (yes it's old but it's in mint condition and has not failed me yet).  I've tried installing the most current Arlo app (2.12.3_27015) on my husbands Note 9 and it doesn't work properly on his phone either.  

 

ARLO, PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM ALREADY!

This issue should be fixed on the latest Arlo Android app version, which is version 2.12.3. If you're still experiencing this issue on the latest Arlo Android app version, please let us know.

No, issue is not fixed
See case 41324651.
Files uploaded to cloud are between 2 and 4 seconds shorter than file recorded on bases USB drive.
The missing 2 - 4 seconds is from the start of the file, making some records appear as a false record.
Also the thumbnail displayed in the library is from the missing video.
Been with support since before Christmas. Now on its second elevation.

Still having the same issues Jessica P.  I communicated with you via private message not long ago and I sent you more information that you requested but I'm still waiting for a fix.  I just uninstalled and reinstalled the app again but it didn't help.   I'm still seeing the entire library of cloud video clips (all camera views) when I try to view clips from one camera only.  As I described before, if I try to view videos from my driveway camera and then try to swipe left to watch the next driveway clip, I am seeing a clip from my front porch or from my deck, etc.  I can't view repeated videos from one camera only.
