First my equipment.
BI "server" AMD hex core 3Ghz., 12Gig ram, 256G SSD.
All cameras wired.
3 foSCAM 8918, 4 foSCAM 9831, 2 USB on USB to ethernet hub, Trendnet TVIP-110 (problem child).
BI ver. 184.108.40.206.x64 (been using BI for 4 years?).
Tablet Invidia Shield K1 wireless 5Ghz. Also tried 2.4 Ghz.. no change. Android 6.0.1 App optimization is turned off, but turning it on did not make any difference.
Laptop Dell Latitude E6500 wired LAN
I have one of my foSCAM 9831 and the Trendnet in a group called "front yard".
My problem happens when I try and used front yard "hold for cycle" on the tablet and/or the laptop, the cycle will start and may go through 2-4 cycles, then the Trendnet freezes.
I know it is frozen because the time stops, and the image is obviously frozen and it always the Trendnet.
This ONLY happens on the Trendnet, and NONE of my other cameras have this problem.
I have tried different configurations of my groups with more than just the two cameras, a different second camera, restarting the Trendnet camera in BI, disabling and re-enabling the camera, with no change.
I even deleted the Trendnet camera and recreated a new camera, and it still froze.
In BI "server", the camera is NOT frozen as the time is still incrementing and the image is changing as if nothing has happened.
No warnings in BI log either, and the watchdog doesn't trigger for that camera.
The status page, under the "webcast" column also stops updating for that camera when it freezes, which tells me that it could be the HTML code has a bug for MJPEG cameras.
Could the HTML code that generates the remote view page have problems with an MJPEG camera?
It is NOT my tablet because the laptop does the same thing. It also is not my wireless because the laptop is wired.
The cycle is just frozen and the only way to resume is to "go back" to the camera list and re-select the group.
One thing I did notice on the laptop is when the camera freezes, a couple of seconds later the screen flashes and the camera starts running again, where the tablet doesn't do this.
Seems like a timer that the HTML runs on the laptop that resets when there is a freeze, but the tablet doesn't do it.
If I just display the two cameras together (no cycling), the cameras do not freeze and run just fine, it is ONLY when I use camera cycle AND one of the cameras is the Trendnet.
What is so "special" with the Trendnet?
I know..it is old and an mJPeG camera and not a shiny new H264, but it has worked for years and is fine for my application.
