Wyze Cam v3 firmware version 188.8.131.52 is releasing shortly! This improves microSD card function, adds a turn off function for microSD cards, allows independent updating of the Spotlight, and fixes some bugs.
I applied the updated, and then came back to it later. Unfortunately, the app kept hanging on step 3/3 when trying to connect. I just love that unsetting feeling of power cycling a camera when the update tells you not to power off the camera.
Update: Just read the release notes, and it looks like my 3/3 issue was a bug in the previous firmware rease.
I updated my 3) V3’s with this 184.108.40.206 firmware a few hours ago and I’m still unable to record anything on playback. It goes through the motions and said it’s saved, etc. but I check the Album and Android Gallery and get the same black video box.
I powered down my phone and restarted each camera, no luck.
heads up that more than likely this is a glitch is how android “refreshes” the gallery. although not finding them in the base folder is perplexing… I would be willing to bet that the gallery itself hasnt refreshed and effectively “added” the new video. if you were to restart your phone it would do a media scan as well but thats annoying and can sometimes depending on the device, take a while.
try this. install a media scanning app. all it does is effectively rescan all the media on your device and brings it up to date. I sometimes have to do this and have had to for years with android.
here is one such app but there are many if you search the play store with “media scanner”
run an app like that. when it’s done go back to your gallery and see if your video is where it should be.
I’m not having problems finding the recorded playback videos… They are in the camera Album, also the Android Gallery and can find them under Manual Album.
They just are a grayed out or back box with he start icon, no video.
Whatever they changed or Android changed between 1/16/21 - 1/29 for me. I regularly captured and recorded clips during playback on all my cameras. And, they were easily found in the camera Album or Android gallery for replay or sending.
