Many users require an unchanging filename such as on webcam pages or weatherstation pages. It would be nice to be able to uncheck a timestamp option box in the setup to always upload a consistent filename. The only workaround seems to be running a PHP script on the server to truncate the filename, but this is beyond the ability many users.

See my other post for the PHP script. Sorry it has to be an image; posting PHP code is not allowed.

Thanks for your note Rick!

But it would be better if this would be adjustable in the FW.

For example with the snapshots (by C1 Lite Cam)

If I create them every 60 seconds, they are created in a subdirectory
... / snap / 20170729 / 20170729-180000 / Schedule_20170729-180245.jpg u.s.w.

Better I can specify the directory to the storage and how the file drawing should look. I would be enough if all files without day and hour directories in the directory snap would lie.

So: ... / snap / Schedule_20170729-180245.jpg

Just as it is currently possible, I do not like it at all!

Greetings - Jan

See my post in the Amcrest forum for the PHP script.

Hi Rick,

You can remove the link again, it now leads to an error page.

Hi,

Looks like Amcrest edited their message boards.  I agree the static filename should be in the Foscam client software. Here's a link to a post on this board that has the script. Scroll down to the post by Rick_E.

Best,

Rick
