Hi there,
I have a short question (CamPermanent):
Is it possible to create some kind of a loop with the oldest recordings?
Overwrite the oldest file with the newest one.

Thank you.

Yes if you use to add a number to the filename.
If you select a max. of 10, then if 10 is reached the number restarts at 0.
The created filename could be "my_video_0.avi" and would overwrite the already existing file with the same filename.

If you use the permanent recording, then this wouldn't work, because the permanent recording records in already existing files at the end.

But you can use the scheduler move/delete functionality to delete files from time to time.
