Firstly, I’m so glad I finally found this forum and software. I’ve been looking for ages for a program to keep tabs on the cams at my house.
I recently bought 2 new cameras for testing. One is a Digoo DG-M1Q, the other is a VStarCam C7824WIP.
I have both set up in NCS after some tweaking and searching of how to use the custom urls. Both cams had to be added using the custom url rather than the ONVIF option for some reason, even though both supposedly support ONVIF. I’m running NCS 1.5.1 x54, if that helps.
I’d prefer to use ONVIF to get all the features, but so far I can only get connections as noted above.
Anyway, here are my questions:
The Vstar is a PTZ camera. I can get it to move if I select “continuous” PTZ in the settings, but that just moves the cam until I press one of the zoom buttons to stop the motion, so it’s difficult to move a little bit, and I have no control over the speed of motion. Choosing relative doesn’t move at all. The zoom buttons don’t do anything, whereas they should be digital zoom. Any idea how to fix this?
On the Digoo Cam, it’s a fixed cam, but I should be able to do digital PTZ, but I can’t. I’d like to be able to enable this feature as well. I can do it through some other software, so I know it’s possible, but I’d prefer to use NCS.
These 2 cameras are different aspect ratios. Is there a way in 2-screen multiview to adjust the split so that one side is larger than the other? Even better would be to have “pop-out” windows for each camera that I could resize and move around independently. Again, I can do this with other software, but I’m planning to buy a NCS license if I can get these little things resolved.
Thanks for any help. It’s nice to finally find a community that supports it’s software!
