Web App for Viewing TeslaCam Videos

edited November -1 in General
I created a web app for viewing TeslaCam dashcam and sentry video clips that I would like to share and get feedback. Works on Mac or Windows using Chrome or IE browsers.

https://sentrycam.appspot.com/

The app uses your local file system and browser - so nothing to install or upload. Click the Choose Files button and select all the mp4 video files within a directory and the app will play the videos from the left, front, and right cameras simultaneously on the screen. Click the speed button to cycle through 1x, 3x or 10x speeds. Will play all the one-minute videos in order by timestamp in the filename.

Let me know any thoughts if this is useful or ideas to make it better. It would be nice if this would just work from the Tesla browser in the car and have access to the files directly mounted from the USB TeslaCam directory.

    Thank you for this. I tried it out and its pretty solid. I do like the autoplay feature, it makes going through all the videos less of a chore.
    A couple of things I can suggest is to be able to click on a specific timestamp (I know you mentioned this in your future updates). Also it would be nice to be able to pause and rewind to a specific time in the videos. If possible it would be nice if there was a brightness options for videos at night or in poorly lit areas.
    Overall I love it!

    Cool app! One suggestion is to have a few skip ahead buttons, like skip forwards/backwards 1 minute, 5 minutes, and 30 minutes.

    P.S. Added to our free app links section!

    @TeslaTap.com - Thanks for the link!

    One of the top feature requests (myself included) is ability to skip forward and/or click on the timestamps to go directly to that timeframe. Hope to have time soon to get these added.

    Very impressive. I was involved in a recent accident and this will be very helpful to my insurance company

    I do not able to now watching the YouTube video, sorry for that. But I'm downloading now this video by using a video downloader. Anyway, if anyone face the problem like me then you should download this video for watching later. For this work, you can use vidmate. Here is the app link: https://apkrons.com/vidmate/

    Very cool. Thank you. I would like to see the videos as large as possible. Also a slider bar would be great to be able to go a few seconds back and forth to double check stuff.

    Wow!! That is really good. http://attorneyofwrongfuldeath.com/ I really appreciate your work. I think your app is really useful for Tesla users. They have also shared the instruction on how to use the app. Really thanks for the article.

    Thank you, it's a big help when looking thru a whole pile of vids.

    In Linux it works both with Chrome and Firefox. You might mention to get three video files at once, you have to hold down the ctrl key while selecting.
    Watching all three videos at once at 3x can induce nausea. :-)

    I just watched a bunch of my videos. A few things:
    - I was using my Chrome browser, I presume it is updated
    - Sometimes while playing the folder of videos, it would come to the end of a video and then stop, even though it was still in the middle of the list. No detectable pattern.
    - Usually (always?) after I would finish viewing a folder, I would select the next folder for viewing and even though the speed button still said "10x", it would default to playing at 1x speed
    - The default should be 10x, not 1x
    -It would sure be nice if I could select the set of folders for viewing, and let it run through them all sequentially
    -Not sure if the browser would allow it, but a button to delete the videos that were just viewed would be awesome

    Nice work! A real time saver compared to viewing them all manually!

    Here's some of the updates to the web app since initial release.

    * Enlarge any camera video by clicking on it. Return to side-by-side layout by clicking the enlarged video.
    * Go directly to a point in time by clicking on the timestamp from the list.
    * Resize the videos automatically when resizing the browser window.

    I can't get the video to play through the TeslaCam Video WebApp Player. I've tried multiple browsers (Chrome, Firefox, and Edge), and none of them will play the video -- probably because I don't have the right codec.

    LVC says that the video files are encoded with H.265 (MPEG-H Part2/HVEC (H.265) (hvc1).

    Any help is appreciated. Thank you

    I’ve learned that owners with HW3, have video that’s encoded with H.265. Maybe this app doesn’t work for HW3 owners yet?

    Looks like video from the newer HW3 cars are encoded with H.265. Currently that is supported only on Edge browser in Windows 10 and Safari for Mac. Try viewing in one of the supported browsers.

    It was mentioned in other forums that Microsoft has provided an extension to install if your Windows doesn't have that codec. https://lifehacker.com/how-to-view-hevc-or-heic-files-in-windows-10-for-free-1827094768

    I've received some sample dashcam files with this codec and will be testing further.
