If you're having trouble finding your videos, it's important to consider the specific video types within AlfredCamera: Events, Moments, and Playback. Each type has distinct characteristics that determine its availability. Let's delve into the potential reasons why your videos might not be appearing as expected.
Events capture specific incidents detected by AlfredCamera's Activity Detection feature. These videos can disappear due to the following reasons:
- Video Expiry: Event videos are retained for a limited period. For free users, videos are stored in the internal storage of the Camera device with a maximum retention of 7 days depending on the storage available, while Premium users enjoy a 14-day storage period.
- Deletion: If you or someone with access to the app deletes an event video, it will be permanently removed from your video feed.
Moment videos are manually recorded and saved by you. They are designed to be preserved indefinitely, offering you a way to keep cherished memories. Moment videos will only disappear if you intentionally delete them.
Continuous Recording captures an 8-hour loop of video, where new recordings overwrite older ones automatically. If you're looking for an older recording beyond the 8-hour window, it might have been overwritten by newer content.
In addition to the specific reasons mentioned above, a few common issues could lead to videos not showing up in your AlfredCamera app:
- Unstable Network: If your network connection is unreliable, your videos might not appear on your Viewer device. Refer to the troubleshooting section in this article for guidance on resolving connection issues.
- Outdated App Version: If you're using an older version of the AlfredCamera app, videos might not load correctly. Ensure you have the latest version installed to avoid this problem.
It's important to note that once an Event, Moment video is deleted, or the Continuous Recording Playback is overwritten, there's no way to retrieve them. We recommend being cautious while managing your videos to avoid unintentional loss.
Locating your videos in the AlfredCamera app should now be easier with a clear understanding of why they might disappear and how to address common issues. Remember to keep your app updated and maintain a stable network connection for the best video viewing experience. And, always be mindful of accidental deletions and overwriting to safeguard your valuable video content.
