Viewing edge recordings

The edge recordings of an encoder can be reviewed remotely. On opening the edge recordings, a bookmark can be reviewed or a particular point in time can be viewed.

View a recorded time

Open the edge recordings. All the days where a recording exists are shown. Choose the day of interest, then the hour and minute. The system will begin playing back from that time. On playing back recordings, controls will appear on screen that will allow control of the playback.

From left to right, these controls are;

  • Skip back 30 seconds

  • Rewind

  • Pause playback

  • Play

  • Fast forward

  • Skip forward 30 seconds

  • Stop playing recordings and return to live video

Recording Bookmarks

While viewing a live video stream or playing back a recording, a bookmark can be set to mark a point of interest. This bookmark can be recalled in any EdgeVis client by any user with the correct permissions.

Adding a bookmark

At the point of interest, select the Add Bookmark icon.

Retrieving a bookmark

Open the edge recordings and choose Select a bookmark. The available bookmarks are listed and can be selected for review playback.

Retrieving edge recordings

The recordings can be downloaded from the remote encoder using the Recordings Downloader. Recordings downloader is installed as part of the EdgeVis client.

Recordings are stored on the encoder at the original video resolution. This can result in very large file sizes that may take a long time to download.

Selecting a time to download

From the action menu, select Download Remote Recording.... You must have the correct permissions and the encoder must be configured for recordings.

On opening the remote recordings, select the time range required and click GET FILES

Choose the files to download and adjust the amount of bandwidth to be allocated to the download. You will be shown an estimate of how long the download will take.

Select DOWNLOAD to add the files to recordings downloader. The files will now be sent to the Recordings Downloader service.
