The gods of concatenation will be with you shortly - though you said “view” not “combine” so…

…still I never miss a chance to say concatenation if I can help it. :wink:

let me clarify view and/or combine. the files aren’t labeled accordingly to what they are, in order to find what each clip is the date created needs to be used. and you would think 00 would be midnight hour and 01 would be 1:00 am hour etc… but no that would be too smart.

That would make a good t-shirt:

But no, that would be too smart. :slight_smile:

The results summary I get includes viewing and combining, programs for both OS’s, and probably, if one digs in far enough, stuff about the file naming “genius” to which you refer.

well that was virtuallly worthless. is still don’t know how to do it. yes i found a couple posts saying to use this program or that program. i would think wyze would have directions/specs on how to do these things. so now i have to research how each program does this. let me say this so everyone understands and hears me…

Lol, I feel your pain. (Imagine Bill-Clinton-biting-lip emoji here)

found instructions for playback… https://support.wyzecam.com/hc/en-us/articles/360022500271-MicroSD-Card-Playback-and-Time-Lapse but at the end of playback section it says : “You can also view and download the footage stored on your microSD card by removing the card and reading it with your computer.” end of instructions. well support got an ear full. thanks for trying to help,

my anger isn’t towards you, it’s just frustration with this company.

sure they have wyze smart plug in development and google home assistant in testing but make the video and sound match… no. stopping the cam from stop recording after losing wifi for 1 1/2 hours… no. make viewing video easy in app or pc… no. answer peoples questions in a timely manner… no.

sure it’s a $20 dollar camera, but if they say it does something, then do it and do it correctly or take it off the specs. (are you listening wyze)

Believe me, I get it. I’m just in an unaccountably good mood today. (Check back tomorrow. You may get less cheery wiseWyzecracks. :wink: )

The Wyze method of viewing the clips all together is using the Playback section of the Wyze app. We don’t have a company recommended app or service for concatenating the clips. This is why we don’t have posted instructions for how to make that happen.

We are looking into the audio/video mismatch, we are catching up on tickets, and the fix for the WiFi connection issue is in process. We are listening. :slight_smile:

For the price, for the objective, for the youtube dude saying he created this (partially? does his toddler sing on pitch? WTF, amazed)…the pricing is on the level of too good to be true (please don’t let greed read that).

I know “expectations”, of course. Do I know the reality of the situation at WYZE, NOPE!!! Please accept full gratitude with that acknowledgement…

Nags, complaints, hopes: voice and video record are out of sync, for me (they are way off. I don’t know what that takes to streamline, so that simpleton’s doesn’t get frustrated). Would like a PC version of the app…Would like to admit a guilty pleasure, I record my conversations with my daughter with your product (she’s a pre-teen, so for the future, for memories, for my love for her). We, her and I, have great moments (I think so), and I would like to replay them in the future (you know, the angst and struggle of being a teen and young adult. I would like to pull these conversations back up to provide the memory, the connection, the joy of being together, etc.)

I truly believe the magic of best intentions and best efforts are happening at WYZE.

Is there a need for a utility to copy the contents from the SD Card to Windows and combine them into one folder? Is my understanding correct?
