beta testing new feature: 24 hour preview

Post by asker » Thu Dec 21, 2017 3:43 pm

Updated Jan 12, 2018: This feature has been released as of version 1.2.515. You can download from the regular channels.

NOTE: You need to update your API to access this feature. See below.



Hi folks, I am beta testing a new feature for a "24 hour preview". I'd like to open up the test to more users at this stage (Desktop only for now). The entire goal of this feature is to be able to quickly preview how a day went and get to events of interest without having to page though gobs of events in a list. Please read more about the concept [HERE]. I think this is a much more useful approach than the Event Montage approach, at least in my mind.


NOTE: This feature needs an API upgrade. and you need to be running a minimum of 1.30.4. To upgrade the API, Simply replace your EventsController.php (typically in /usr/share/zoneminder/www/api/app/Controller) with the latest one from Zoneminder master.

Hi Asker!
Loving the Beta desktop app, the 24 hour preview really helps!

I was wondering however have the beta builds been removed from your google drive, all i see up there now is an android beta, with no desktop versions.
I've previously downloaded the 64-bit version, and was hoping to run it on an old windows tablet i have sitting gathering dust, but it's 32-bit only.

Anyway, thanks for your creation! I've supported you by purchasing the Android version (Also very cool :))
Many thanks,
Liamo.

Just upgraded the IOS app and got this new feature. Got the API warning and a quick Google brought me here.

The features work perfectly and is very helpful. I'd probably call it a 24 hour review as it doesn't include a time machine.

You are absolutely right. Review is the right word. I’ll change it. Glad you like it. This feature has become my default go to screen.
