(first time ipad user)
We have 4 mpeg video cameras at a vacation home. When any computer or ipad is viewing the streaming video across the internet it pretty much exhausts the uplink bandwidth of the ISP connection at the home where the cameras are. We don't want to throttle per-user bandwidth because that lowers the video frame-rate.
Issue: The ipad keeps streaming from the last camera viewed after the ipad user moves on to other apps on the ipad. Internet performance at both ends of the connection is severly taxed even though the video is not long being displayed on the ipad.
I am new: is there a way to close Safari with one click somewhere ? Or is there a way to set a time-out on an app when its not out-front for a period of time ?
This is my wife's ipad and we really need a single click or automatic process to avoid this problem.
The same cameras upload 5 second .mp4 clips to a file-browsing web site when they detect motion. In Windows 7, IE9 starts playing a video file as soon I click on it while it continues to download. On ipad, you get a round sybmol with a triangle and a line across the triange.
Is there a way to browse and play these files directly off of the web site. Since these files are sort of catch-and-release (not to be saved) downloading them and loading them into iTunes is a deal-breaker. Also these videos can be created as .3GP or .ASF. Does that help ? (ASF wouldn't play in Windows)
