@biviel , thanks. I will try this later today.
Just an FYI, I did make a report to my contacts at RICOH about the heating issue you have with the Z1 plug-in you are developing. They indicated that they know of unofficial tests with the Wireless Streaming Plug-in at 4K for 24 hours. There is no publication of these tests and no information on the conditions. Though, I imagine that it was indoor in an air-conditioned room with no fan on the Z1.
I am trying to test the situation myself.
Using Z1 with 1.60.1
- RTSP plug-in shows video frame degradation at 4K, but is fine at 2K. Using VLC as the viewer on Ubuntu 20.04. Tested at 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi with an old router. It’s possible that my Wi-Fi setup is causing the frame degradation. However, as I am trying to isolate heating problems, I did not pursue a solution and decided to test the Wireless Live Streaming plugin
- I can’t test the Wireless Live Streaming Plug-in at 4K to YouTube or Facebook as I have slow upstream bandwidth in my house and my daughter is doing Zoom online classes all day much of the night (for other types of classes). The plug-in works fine at lower resolutions, but this is expected as it is likely having heating issues only at 4K.
- I’m trying to run the Z1 at 4K live streaming on my local network with Wi-Fi to control the variables and document the test conditions more precisely
- I do not think it is possible to use Ethernet indefinitely with the Z1. The battery will drain. I’ve tried different types of splitters. I do not think it will work.
- If people power the Z1 from their computer, Wi-Fi will turn off. If you want to power the camera from your computer and use Wi-Fi, one cheap method is to use a data blocker (physical $7 device). More info.
When you release your plug-in for testing, you may want to have some scenarios for local on-premise testing, especially for functionality such as endurance.
