All Linux commands below are for theNVRappliance and Debian 7. Different Linux distributions will have slightly different commands.
Updating from aUniFiVideo installation prior to 3.3.0 might take an hour or longer, depending onthe amount ofrecordings in the database. To get up and running immediately, perform a clean install instead of upgrading.
YourUbiquitiAccount (SSO) is the same account you use tologinto the community forum. If you want to use a different account forUniFiVideo, first log out of the community before setting upUniFiVideo for cloud access.
When adding a new camera, your camera password will be reset and configurable underNVRSettings. Usernameremains the same.
Systems that are not the hardwareNVR(airVision-C orUVC-NVR) must have some form of anNTPdaemoninstalled to prevent timestamp and time synchronization errors.
Email and push alert enable/disable settings are now per-user instead of being system-wide. Alert settings can be found under the "Alerts" tab of each configured user.
Although downgrading is not technically supported, if you do choose to downgrade from a version below 3.8.0, you'll need to factory default your cameras while on firmware less than 3.8.0in order for the cameras to be managed by controllers less than 3.8.0. i.e. Downgrade the controller, make sure the firmware on the camera has downgraded to something lower than 3.8.0 (3.7.0 for example), factory default the camera, manage the camera.
Windows: Run Installer as Administrator

System and Configuration
To reduce disk I/O on NVR appliances, UniFi Video logs for all Linux installations are now symbolic links to the data mount point (e.g /srv/unifi-video/logs). They remain accessible from /var/log/unifi-video but are no longer directly written to that partition.
New version 4.2.13
Support for Adaptive Bitrate
Fixed crash caused by video settings change
Fixed web UI loading with panel overlays
No change: bundled version 1.0.30
Added support for improved alerts notifications to the web interface
Added support for dynamic bitrate adjustment when live streaming. Should significantly improve live streaming over cloud/WebRTC when enabled.
Fixed duplicate software update notification sent to web interface under certain circumstances.
Fixed encoder parameter being ignored by the camera, resulting in higher than expected bandwidth.
Fixed database missing index for fetching In-Progress recordings which improves UniFi Video service start-up time.
Optimized recording chunk processing to minimize Disk I/O impact on overall NVR system. - Improves video cache usage and reduces the system load average. Default video segment length is now also increased from 2 to 4 seconds.
Added critical Alerts badge and improved Alerts page presentation.
Added recording type column in recording list.
(Beta Feature) Added option to enable/disable Adaptive Streaming channels. (Please see sticky post for more details) - We strongly recommend caution enabling Adaptive Streaming on the resolution that you are recording. - We recommend enabling Adaptive Streaming for the medium resolution for best live streaming results via mobile over the cloud or remote connections.
Updated buffering spinner animation
Revamped email templates for local SMTP email notifications. Cloud alerts will be updated with these new templates at a later date.
Reordered camera table columns so that Link State is not obstructed by the camera settings panel and more inline with the OSI model.
Made user group permissions required.

We are aware of some issues with the iOS app and are addressing 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.
