    can't get video on my phone question

    the tiny cam app was the best one at the time. do you have another app that will let me view my cameras like tinycam does? i have tried tons of apps and tinycam was the best and easiest one to ust at the time. if i leave the app running with wifi turned off it will show the cameras 1 or 2 at a time and only for a few seconds. kind of like when i had them all using just wifi. now theya re all wired and on a wired network. when i'm home they all show on the phone perfect, but when i'm gone and not using wifi they just do not want to show very well at all. but if you have a better app and one that is free to try please let me know. thanks
  2. i have the galaxy a51 phone and i can see my cameras using tinycam pro when at home and using wifi but if i turn wifi off or i'm some place that i do not have wifi it seems i can't see my cameras. i put tinycam free on the wifes phone and her phone seems to allow the cameras when wifi is turned off. i even turned wifi off at home and i still can't get the cameras to show using metro pcs network t-mobile is the same network. so i'm wondering if i have something set wrong on my phone. i run ver.13 and i did compare network settings from my phone to the wifes phone. i do get a free number on my phone thru the wifes account but it seems that should not make a difference as we both get unlimited data and texts. i also have developer mode turned on but my phone is not rooted. so maybe i have a switch turned on or need to turn one on. anyone have any idea what might be going on? thanks

    jennov mvr question

    thanks. i did make support contact and they said this unit will not be able to see my other nvr or the combo dvr/nvr. but it did find the cameras i have directly connected to my network. so i managed to get cameras on the jennov that will work. the other thing i do not like at all is the screen has a very narrow viewing angle. you have to be directly in front of it to see the feed good. if your just to the left-right-up-down the images are cloudy or they start to dim. kind of like some laptops, they must have used a cheap laptop screen. if i could find a 10 ' 0r larger tablet that would connect to my network with a lan cable i would sell the jennov unit and go back to a tablet. they are much thinner and have a wide view angle. but for now it is what it is. thanks

    jennov mvr question

    i just got this jennov nvr with built-in monitor model v1908f85-8e. i was told by the seller that i would be able to see all my cameras i have on my network with this unit. so i set it up and it will not see the cameras that i have connected to my dvr/nvr unit. that unit sees all of my cameras. also i have 2 other nvr units that will see both the ip cameras and the dvr cameras. this jennov nvr is on the same network i checked the box to get this one to align to my router and then unchecked it so it will not change back to what it shipped with, i did that for all the other dvr and dvr/nvr units. thanks for any ideas

    westshine nvr/dvr question

    are you saying that is the admin pw? i thought they were all numbers i need the admin pw so i can log onto the device and then reset my password. being today is 12-1-23 that code if it is the pw might have ran out. i just go it. thanks ok i got if figured out now. i had to download the xmeye app and go thru the user name and pw and because i did not have it i had to use the scanner on the phone to scan and get a code and then entered that and of course that failed but it did then kick into a reset mode and let me redo the questions and password for teh admin and that then let me into the system. so thanks for telling me that is was not a westshine but an xmeye and that allowed me to figure it out.

    westshine nvr/dvr question

  7. i have a westshine 8 ch dvr and 8 ch nvr all in one unit. it came with the normal admin and blank for pw to log into the system. well that was ok for a long time and then i decided to add another user and logging that user in. well for some reason now the unit will not let me log into the system to make changes. i know the pw as i have it written on the unit. and now it will not let me even log into the admin side of the login. so what i would like to know is if there is a switch on the board that will let me pull it off the pins or move it form one set of pins so i can force the thing to just plain do and forced reset. i could un plug the battery but that may also clear the bios and then i have a brick. so if anyone has a clue on how to get past the admin and blank for these? or how to reset them using the main board and reset pins or unplugging it and shorting across a set of pins i sure need to find out. i have to make a few changes.

    is there a tinycam app section here

    well that may be i guess but then what you going to do? do you have security cameras? if so they have to be linked to something. i have my ports all changed and not using 80 or 88 or any of the ports normally used and are my ports open says my system is hidden. so if that is wrong i guess it is as you say. i even disabled the admin on the nvrs and dvrs so that should keep china out but my guess is they may have a back door most electronics do that is how the hacker get in. as fr tinycam my phone has no banking on it so china can look at it all day long. but my guess is alexea has better things to do than watch my cameras they do not show much but what you can see for the road? thanks
  9. i have 20 ip cameras and a 25 ch nvr in the kitchen and also 2 dvrs and an nvr in the utility room they all get the same feeds but i also have the tiny cam app on my phone and now my foscam cameras are getting old and they may soon start to fail. so i will be in need of a new system so i'm looking again for some ptz cameras. most i see on ebay are wifi-nvr units and i figure they will just talk to there base station so they should not drop out there feed between there own base like my foscams did using my cable modem. but i would like to know it anyone has had luck with the tiny cam app on some of the newer systems? i see that tiny cam has not updated to many of the newer systems now, unless he has been updating it and my phone is not getting the updates? but i have installed his app last week on a new device and it does not have any more makes and models than the app on my phone i have had for years. i try to ask ales questions but he does not ever answer me anymore. he use to reply but i figure he is busy and can't, but he does not answer on the other forum either. so is there a tinycam forum i might try or is there another app that may work the same or better than tinycam?
  10. i have a bunch of ip cams 8 are on a dvr-nvr unit and 8 foscams on the same dvr-nvr unit and all on the tinycam app. i have been looking on ebay for some outside type ip cameras with ptz action. just about everyone now are wifi and not hard wired. mine area all hard wired as when i had them on wif the feed was terrible. anyway i may be able to do some crapshoots with some ebay cameras and tinycam may run them but what i need now is a pc program that will let me not only run the program for monitoring the cameras at least the network foscam type ip cams and also allow me to get into the settings to make username password and port changes at a minimum. now i use the foscam program but that will not work on other cameras. i did have a program and a few years ago window stopped supporting the adobie and so that camera program stopped working. so if anyone knows of a program that is free at least to try and maybe some outside type ip cams that tinycam will run and do ptz please send that along.

    xvim dvr viewing questions

    above you see media port is set to what the tiny cam says to set it to. but i have different web ports and rstp ports already forwarded on the modem. i forwarded the 34567 and still nothing. below os the next page on the xvim network page. thanks
  12. i got a xvim dvr with cameras. and for the most part it seems to be working good. i use tinycam for my phone to view the cameras. i use to have the zmodo dvr and i could see my cameras at home and away, but on this xvim i only see my cameras at home. the network and the network back page has different names for the settings and i'm not figuring this out. so is there any chance someone here has the xvim dvr and uses tinycam and might be able to help me out with this? attached are the xvim network pages and i need to know what fields i need to use for the port settings. The tiny cam says to use for the web port 34567 and i set my cameras to that and nothing when away even in the remote web port and rstp that number fails. now i have it forwarded on the modem so it should get out. but i must be using the wrong fields.

    zosi systems are they any good

    have a question a bit off topic but for the cameras system. i got a 5g tmobile gry tincan gateway and it will not port forward. but the store says they get port forwarding on there system and the tmobile website person i called to cancel the 5g gateway said the 4g lte does port forwarding. so does anyone have the tmobile 4g lte modem/gateway and have it forwarding there cameras? i tired for a week to forward my system with the 5g modem/gateway and i could not get it. and on the tmobile forums they say it can't be done. but i have not asked yet on the 4g lte forums as i found out this infor yesterday and have not been on that forum. but as long as i'm here maybe someone has this 4g lte setup and it is working. if so i may go with that for my internet and cameras and ditch comcast. i do not need tv just internet. thanks

    zosi systems are they any good

    thanks i have not got one. i have a nvr that show 25 cameras it was sold as a 32 cameras system but for some reason i only get 25. and i have 6 foscams r2 cameras on it and 12 zmodo analog cameras on it. i think i will start getting ip cameras and then i have pts and zoom if needed. and i can use the analog camera cabling to power them and run new cat5 or 6 cable out from the network remote switching thanks

    heimvision hm202a quetion

    i put this camera back in the box and set on the shelf. i got a refund for it. i tired about 6 ip cm programs on it and the only one that did anything was it's own app. tinycam did a bit but none of the other apps would even find it. if you can't change the username and password and thoe ports are open to hackers then it is useless. that may be why it was a cheap camera makes no difference that it was from china as they all are. but this was a cheap unit.
