Modern Video Player

IPCams has a new modern video player with RTSPS support, wider stream compatibility, increased efficiency and better error handling.

Why should I use It?

The modern video player is designed for the future of IPCams in mind. It uses less system resources and handle errors much more gracefully. If you have had issues where your camera stream is slow to load, audio pausing in other apps on your phone, or unexpected recording failures on IPCams Hub you should try the new video player out.

We have not enabled it as the default video player in IPCams yet, as we don't want to interfere with anyone's working setups. But once we iron out all the kinks, we do plan on making it the default for everyone. If you have any feedback or compatibility issues with the new video player, be sure to leave us a bug report from the app.

How do I enable it?

  1. Open your camera setting screen by long pressing (right clicking on macOS) on your camera from the camera list
  2. Scroll down to the bottom of the camera settings page and toggle on the `Enable Modern Video Player` setting
  3. Click save at the bottom to save your setting

Note: You will need to make this change for every camera you would like to use the modern video player.
