UniFi Video 3.10.1 Soft Release

by Ubiquiti Employee 2 weeks ago - last edited 2 weeks ago

We are doing a slow rollout of 3.10.0. This simply means that not all of the upgrade methods will be available right now. Updating through the apt repository and through the web interface will be available in coming weeks. For now, if you wish to upgrade, you will need to manually download the appropriate package for your operating system and install it.

 

 

System Requirements

  • NVR appliance or a 64-bit OS from the Files section below
  • Intel Atom D2500 CPU
  • 100GB HDD
  • 4GB RAM
  • Google Chrome
  • 500GB HDD or larger
  • RAM Disk for Windows installations - How-To

 

Important Notes

  • To ensure a smooth upgrade path, NVR appliances must upgrade to 3.9.12 before upgrading to 3.10.0+.  Then, upgrading an NVR from 3.9.12 to 3.10.0+ must be done via the web UI update.  Subsequent updates can then be performed via apt, manual, etc. unless otherwise noted in the release notes.  Since the soft release requires a manual install, here is the safe way to download and install it (this also works if you already attempted an install via dpkg, you're basically just reinstalling with the proper JRE):
    wget https://dl.ubnt.com/firmwares/unifi-video/v3.10.1/unifi-video.Debian7_amd64.v3.10.1.deb; /usr/lib/unifi-video/bin/ubnt.updater unifi-video.Debian7_amd64.v3.10.1.deb
  • Java Runtime version 8 is now required, NVR appliances are upgraded when this package is installed
  • TLSv1.0 has been deprecated
  • As you can see in the links, we have deprecated support for Ubuntu 14.04 and added support for Ubuntu 18.04.  If you're still running Ubuntu 14.04, we recommend upgrading to at least Ubuntu 16.04 ASAP, please see this post for further details
  • Your Ubiquiti Account (SSO) is the same account you use to login to the community forum. If you want to use a different account for UniFi Video, first log out of the community before setting up UniFi Video for cloud access
  • Systems that are not the hardware NVR (airVision-C or UVC-NVR) must have some form of an NTP daemon installed to prevent timestamp and time synchronization errors

 

Installation

  • Windows: Run Installer as Administrator
  • Hardware NVR/Debian Install manual installation (other Linux files are linked at the bottom of this post, simply change the URL and filename to the appropriate operating system):
    wget https://dl.ubnt.com/firmwares/unifi-video/v3.10.1/unifi-video.Debian7_amd64.v3.10.1.deb
    sudo dpkg -i unifi-video.Debian7_amd64.v3.10.1.deb
  • UniFi Video controller is now using Java8 at runtime. NVR appliances are upgraded automatically to Java Runtime 8 when this version is installed.
  • Fixed unifi-video startup script, so it waits for /srv mount point to be available before starting the controller.

 

Cloud Setup

New Installations

  • Visit https://video.ubnt.com using Chrome from a computer on the same network as your UniFi Video installation.

Upgrades

  • Connect to your NVR locally (over HTTPS using the server's IP address on port 7443), then click 'Connect To My Ubiquiti Account' under NVR Settings.

KNOWN ISSUES

  • In Live View, when switching between Live and Recording channels, the video temporarily freezes. This is also causing recording at that moment to freeze when played back.  We have identified the root cause and it is not a trivial fix.  Stay tuned for a future release that resolves this bug.
  • We are aware of some issues with the iOS app and have addressed it by rolling back to a known working version on as many models as possible.
    • iPhone X users will continue to experience audio issues for the time being, we will be working as quickly as possible to resolve this as well as incorporate the full support for new camera models in the form of iOS App updates.
