Why do you delete negative comments….shame on you.
This is the most frustrating application I’ve ever used. After loading my PC with BluestacksX emulator and EseeCloud all seemed fine for live viewing all eight cams on my system. When I tried to download a time segment of saved video is when it all fell apart. Not only did it take a half hour to download a half hour clip, when the download was finished it completely disappeared from my hard drive. The download file path in the settings indicated C://Program Files (x86) and that was it. When I searched that folder sure enough there was an EseeCloud folder and for the love of me could not find the downloaded file. Something tells me the guy who wrote the code for this app was in a hurry. So now I’ve given up trying to use it for anything other than viewing the cams live on the PC. So much for “simple and elegant application”!
Even this website doesn’t work. Sheesh!
How do you log out of the app?
Can I connect the camera with RJ45?
I cannot connect it with Wifi, it always fails

You have to watch the whole video play back that takes all day to do so in stead of just the motion ones it makes me mad that I have to do this and all you know is you’re videos are out in the universe some where but where how can I solve this problem then to put the cramas in the trash
Hi, you can only view motion video.
