After pressing the Play button from the File and events panel, this transport panel is shown. The recording is playing, or will soon. To pause play, touch within the view window and right-click (RMB). RMB again to resume play.The main view window border becomes brighter when the view window has keyboard focus. When the view window has focus you can use the mouse to ePTZ within the view window. This also applies to Live video views. See the Camera setup, ROI panel for details.Once the recording has started playing, press the Peel view command button to move the recording playback into a new, floating window.
Prior moves play to the previous event, relative the current play time. If there is no prior event, play begins from the start of the recording. Next moves play to the next event, relative the current play time. If there is no next event, play begins 30 seconds before the end of the recording. For example, if the recording ends at midnight, play would start from 23:59:30. The next event is shown, indicating that next event's MD (12345678) and DI (012XxPAT) hits. The name of the recording is shown next to that. The backspace key can be used instead of the Prior button, and the spacebar can be used instead of the Next button. The P key can be used to toggle pause instead of a mouse right click (RMB). The recording view window must have focus. When the view window has focus its border is brighter red. When play is paused the playtime clock flashes.
The green buttons control the playback rate. Press the minus button to reduce the playback rate and the plus to increase the playback rate. The current rate is displayed on the middle green button. Press that button to quickly reset the playback rate to 1x. The minimum and maximum rates depend on an audio track being present. If audio is present, the minimum rate is 0.5x and the maximum is 8.0x. If no audio track is present the minimum rate is 0.1x and the maximum is 120.0x. Recordings that have audio may have the audio ignored by setting the System, Audio panel, Discard audio field to yes. When audio is discarded, the extended range applies for even these recordings.When going from a high-speed playback rate to a much slower rate results in I-frame-only frames being played until the already-queue frames play out. High-speed play causes a much longer queue of frames to be maintained, up to 30 seconds or more, instead of the usual 3 to 5 seconds, and only I-frames are in this queue (see the System, Trick play panel, Smooth rate field in this guide for more). Instead of waiting for those queued, I-frames-only frames to play, press Stop and then Play. This throws out the old queue and starts a new, much smaller one, for playback. If the rate is less than the Smooth rate limit, all frames are showing, not just I-frames.To quickly jump back 10 seconds in the recording, press the -10 sec button. To quickly jump forward 30 seconds press the +30 sec button.
The playtime clock has a menu button. Press it to select the time to play directly: First enter the hour, then the minute, and then the second. If the time entered is before the beginning of the recording, play starts from the beginning. If the time is after the end of the recording, play starts two seconds from the end, and so quickly ends. If the time is not present in the recording, which might happen if recording by event only, among other reasons, the play starts at the next recorded frame.
Recordings of cameras belonging to the same display group(s) of the view being controlled are played synchronously, if possbile. In other words, moving the recording of a camera with a display group of ALPHA to an event at time 21:12:40 moves recordings playing (in peel views) of other cameras that are also in display group ALPHA for that day to that time. See Cam setup, ID, for setting the display group.
Press the Stats button to switch to the status panel. To leave the status panel click anywhere in the status panel. The status panel may go black when a recording ends, along with the view window. Click in either to return to the Files and events panel. Press the Export button to switch to the export panel.
