Problem with refreshrate > 10 seconds

Postby Amorup » Tue Nov 12, 2013 1:21 am

Hi Forum!

I use the IP Cam Viewer Pro to see a group of 6 scenic webcams. Since there is not much happening (just landscapes), I try to use the "Refreshrate" option to keep the refresh rate at 10 minutes and save data when roaming.

However it does not seem to work properly? When I use a refreshrate of 600 seconds (10 minutes), the cameras refreshes at about 10 second intervals which eats a lot of my mobile data allowance. Is there a hidden max on refreshrate?

Example of a link:
http://www.trinum.com/ibox/ftpcam/haute ... shrate=600
This gives approx. 10 second refreshes?

Any ideas?

set the widget refresh rate in App Settings.

the refreshrate parameter in the url is really just for the gallery view and matrix view.
since those views do not run in background, there's no point in setting really long durations.

anyway, give v5.2.6 a try since it has some bug fixes relating to the generic image url driver with refreshrate.

thx rob

i have the same problem.
there is no effect to the refreshrate in the matrix view when i add "?refreshrate=300".
how can i control the refreshrate in the app (ios)?
