Step2. Turn the time services on in Windows services
Step3. Configure Windows firewall allow time services communicating with each camera
Step4. Set PC time clock in each camera

Step1. Set two values in “regedit” in Windows

Step4. Set PC time clock in each camera.

Now we can set cameras timestamp sync with the PC time server just made in a standalone network without Internet clock servers.

set PC NTP server to each camera

Here is the sample how to set camera clock to PC time server. If the camera IP address is 192.168.1.109, then
open a browser, enter camera IP address to URL in a browser.

do SET clock:

http://192.168.1.109/cgi-bin/hi3510/param.cgi?cmd=setntpattr&-ntpserver=192.168.1.225&-ntpinterval=1


192.168.1.109 –> camera IP address.
192.168.1.225 –> PC IP address with PC time server in it.
-ntpinterval=1 –> sync camera time with PC per hour

You can check if the camera timestamp get from PC time server,

do GET clock:

http://192.168.1.109/cgi-bin/hi3510/param.cgi?cmd=getntpattr


To verify current NTP is PC time server while camera updating time per hour.

Chrome browser, it says: “couldn’t load plugin”. Can you advise how to fix this?

without comments

The camera is the M7B77-WPS, and the new firmware is MYM71080i-F2.0.5.pkg.

I just figured out the problem, and it’s working now. Here’s what I was seeing: When I try to view the camera with Chrome, it says: “Couldn’t load plugin.”
This was new with the new firmware.

Here’s what fixed it: I went to: “chrome://components/” and updated the Adobe Flash Player. The new Adobe version that works is 26.0.0.126
