here is the files inside th all day folder that get overwritten and dont need to be deleted:
and here is a screenshot of the progressive all day videos, after a week or so they will start adding up, but you could probabbly delet the old ones once every 2 weeks or month, and with 80gb hard drive not have to worry about filling the hard drive to quickly. JUST MAKE SURE THAT IF YOU DELET ANY OF THE ALL DAY VIDEO’S, THAT YOU DONT DELETE THE MOST RECENT ONES!.. Like the one for today,yesterday and the day before that, should be a save bet. they are dated if you hold mouse ursor over each icon it will display date for that all day video they look like this in my folder:
as far as having to download windows media encoder, I did Download it, as I think it is needed. even if you downloaded it and dont need it, it wont hurt anything and is a small file to download, but I am pretty sure it is needed and must be downloaded before setting all day videos up.
I have the otion checked for creating the last hour video, because I was not sure if I needed it or not, but since everything is working I have left it ticked and it shouldnt hurt anything or waste any hard drive space. perhaps brian or someone else can verfy a few of my setting’s also as to what exactly needs to be ticked and why or what it does. My setting to me are working and as the old saying goes…“If it aint broke, dont fix it”…LOL…So I have left it alone and my all day and yesterday video’s, along with my live streaming webcam…has been working fine for past week or so, when I first set it up.
as far as how long it will take to create the first all day video, or at least part of the all day video…it will take at least one-two hours from your starting time. my start time is 5am, so around7;30 am I can start seeing it being created by just clicking on my all day video link on webpage. one of the options in setup specifies it to do this. it is a good option, so if visitor’s to your site come there before your stop creating time, they can at least see the current all day video up until the current time they came to your site, and if they want to see the entire day can always come back later, or viewe yesterdays video
once the video starts creating the two actual links that need to be on the page for my site are this:
your links/paths to your video’s should be same, except using your website address in replace of my ‘gateway2capecod.com’
