What is the Instant Record button for? It seems no effect on anything.
The Instant Record is designed for the "Local DVR/NVR" purpose only. Not for the Remote.
It is the Manual Record button. When you enable it, no matter currently it is Motion Detect recording or the Continous recording, it will Force to record from now until you disable it.
That is the Manual Record button (aka Instant Record). It is not designed for the PC browser recording.
Based on the HTML5 software agreement. Currently, it only can support up to 4 camera views.
There is no live record/screenshot function for the HTML5 browser.
If you like to save/download the video file, please use the IE browser, or use the Client software.
