Where are the video files?

13 comments

When checking today something I wanted to see (as I supposed that my K2 was recording everything and just deleting "older" files in the 125Gb SD card that is installed), I've realized that a period of time when I've been riding today is missing... How this can be possible? There are video files from previous time and days and later... but there is a "hole" in a period of time in which I've been riding my bike.

 

I've also realized that there are 2 folders. One is called "VIDEO" (in which I presume are all the "normal" videos that the K2 is recording) and other is called "PARK" (in which I presume are the videos "triggered" by the park mode). But in the "PARK" folder are also many videos that have been recorded when riding the bike (I've been riding 10 hours per day this weekend).

 

If in addition to the lack of quality of the videos (far away of what is shown in the "expo" videos and photos), I cannot trust in what is recorded and when, I will consider that the K2 is just a new piece of hardware&software not working as expected and a (new) waste of money.

 

Any idea?

Have you checked that all recordings from two folders are matching the time you were ridding?

 

You rode 10 hours per day, and do you get 10 hours videos?

Hi Rock! Thanks for your reply.

 

Yes, the available recordings match time. What is missing is everything between 12:35 and 14:00 on 14th October, time in when I was riding for sure my bike. I have the impression that after when stopped before 12:35 the K2 did not switch again on and that it only was "reactivated" after my stop in a petrol station at 14:00 not recording anything during that time.

 

I've switched off the parking option and I will change the duration of the recordings (now fixed at 5 minutes) for something lower (1 minute or maybe 3) and I will pay attention to see if everything is recorded next time I take the bike.

I have same video files in VIDEO folders, and same files in PARK folders. I don't now why? I have Park mode off. I think, it is bug firmware.

It depends on your shock setting, if the system senses a gforce above your setting it'll save the video in the PARK folder so that it doesn't get overwritten.

Ok, but why? It does not make sense. Park mode is OFF = Park folder is empty. This should be obvious

The park folder is simply misnamed. think of it as a do not delete file -both shock and park videos will go there

@Ron Swenson, you are right. the name should be locked.

 

Have to make change.

@Rock Liu

I assume I have found the settings for the folder names within the firmware.

Shall I try to change them? :-)

Personally I don't see what the deal is with a file name. As long as the G force files and Park files go there and don't get deleted then I don't really care what the file name is. But that is just my opinion. I would be more concerned about doing another update just to change file name. I had a bunch of issues with the last update and not looking forward to another.

@Ron Swenson

I don´t care about the folder names, too. That was just a small and friendly taunt towards Innov/Rock to get forward with an update to fix some issues and missing features.

For example letting the user alter the video settings (sharpness, brightness, etc.).

 

I am currently trying to change these settings myself by directly modifying the firmware, as I did with the bitrate. But I would rather do this the official way using the app.

@Frostie I hear ya!! Updates make me nervous as I was dead in the water for a couple weeks last time!! LOL With this I just want to keep it simple and hope it is recording if something bad happens!!

  • Loving this product so far. Question is: I'm a dual-sport rider and often take my GS Adventure offroad. How does the K2 hold up in rocky, rough riding environments? Heading back to Baja next month, and I would love to have it fully functional but I'm considering leaving the DVR back at the hotel. Advice?
  • I just completed a 14,000 Mile trip through the US, Europe, and a good deal of Asia. The entire trip, the Innov K2 was running, and capturing video. During this timeframe, my Sena Momentum INC Pro helmet's camera failed, so I was left with just the Innov K2 to capture my trip. In my case, I ride a 2015 BMW GSA, and the control unit for the K2 is installed under the seat, attached to a power distributor. The unit was installed at the BMW dealer in Charlotte, by a Tech that I really trust, and who did an excellent job. First of all, this thing (the K2) was bulletproof. It started and stopped, just as expected, each time I started the bike, and it never missed. The video quality when riding more slowly, was exceptional, but the quality when riding faster is slightly less than perfect, but still very good, and certainly acceptable. I used a 256 GB SD card, class 10, and I never completely filled the card, although we rode some days, as many as 16 hours, and 400 miles. Pls keep in mind that riding in Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and China will be on severely compromised roads, so our average speed was lower, and a 400 mile day is a very long day. While I love this camera, there are a few areas that need to be addressed. 1) I needed to have a set of tweezers with me at all times, in order to remove the SD card so that I could download the video. 2) The spring mechanism that holds in the SD card is strong enough that, on one occaision, it shot the SD card across the chamber that is under the seat, and the SD card ended up lost, somewhere in the body work of the bike. 3) The rubber cover that covers the SD Slot is too fragile, and it broke. This rubber piece has a tab on one end, and from opening up the cover, and closing it twice each day, the rubber piece broke, and made it much more difficult to get at the SD card. I'm going to need a new rubber piece sent to me. 4) Because the connector ends on the camera are as large as they are, the installation onto the bike was more complex, and more costly than I could have imagined. It was simply not possible to "slide the cable head through the cable channel on the bike", so the tank had to be removed, along with all the body work, in order to run the wires properly, in the wire harness channel. 5) I was unable to get the unit to accept the latest F/W upgrade, so I'll need to figure that out, once the bike arrives back in the US. 6) After installing the new app on my IOS device, I needed to delete the app, and reinstall from scratch, in order to have it connect to the WiFi network broadcast by the K2. These issues are relatively minor, but a bit annoying. So, they need to be fixed, but we cannot overlook the conclusion that this camera system is fantastic. Numerous times during the trip, someone would say to me that they thought that I did something, or wanted to know if I recorded an event that happened, and because the camera automatically starts recording, my answer was always yes, and I used the video to show what happened numerous times. I also used the video on my Blog, on a number of occasions. So, if you're interested in seeing the quality, you can visit www.motocliffnotes.info and look through the videos. You'll quickly find those that were recorded using the K2. And finally, because the front and rear cameras record to files, which are started and stopped within a 1/0 of a second of each other, I was able to easily build files which had picture in a picture, using Adobe Elements Premiere 2018. You really should look at some of these videos. The F+R views are compelling. This system is awesome, and I can't wait to use it again, for my next trip. How do I go about getting a replacement cover, for the recording unit? Sample videos of PIP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kHYN1EyoWU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-KbJL4oOa0
  • Would it be possible to have the DVR clock use Zulu time/GMT? I'm a 24-hour-time type of person. I would rather the system time and filename timestamps were in 24-hour format, vs. remembering whether DST applies or not. This would also eliminate timestamps that are an hour off, because DST changed but I haven't connected the DVR to the K2 app lately.
