    I couldn’t get the video to play with my old computer and camera but now I have switched computer and a new camera (TCL SVC 200) which keeps the time stamp settings and I am still unable to play videos.

    Is there a debug mode I can run to be able to find what is going on?

    I have installed the RaceQs plugin which shows up in the toolbar. I can also see from the registry it is version

    I have entered the location of my video files and they are listed when I click on the RaceQs toolbar icon

    I have the  latest versions of Chrome, Firefox and IE and neither of them has RaceQs in the list of add ons/extensions/plugins

    If I run ffmpeg.exe from a dos window I get the following output:

    From technical point of view “raceQs GeoVids plugin” itself is not a plugin. It installs FBVLC plugin to allow for replay of various video formats. And communicates the list of your videos to the replay page. That’s it.


    Here are things to check:

    1. You have FBVLC browser plugin installed and it is not blocked by your browser. Check this test page. It needs to be set to “Play automatically” for raceqs.com as “Click to Play” may not work in some cases.

    2. You have “raceQs GeoVids” running and see it in your tray.

    3. When you click it, it opens a folder and you can see your videos there.

    4. When you right-click “raceQs GeoVids” in the tray and select “Folders”, you can see the correct number of video files.

    5. On the “Video” tab on replay page you can see the list of your video files with the correct date and time.


    Let us know if you were able to resolve the issue or were you’re stuck.


    Aha  – the Firebreath VCL player needed to be enabled in the browser, although the test link you gave didn’t work. It should be  : http://rsatom.github.io/fbvlc/

    And the Firebreathed browser plugin needs to be set to always activate in Firefox.

    I think you should add this info and link to the FAQ and Help because it would save many issues – or people just giving up on getting it working.

    Unfortunately, I still can’t get my videos to play, despite the above. I don’t see a Video tab on the Replay page.

    I think the issue may lie with the time stamps of the files – below are the files from the RaceQs taskbar app:

    time	                duration     url
     1980-12-03 22:57:50	1706	     D:\Users\Paul\Videos\RaceQs\SPTM0001.MP4
     1980-12-03 23:26:17	1708	     D:\Users\Paul\Videos\RaceQs\SPTM0002.MP4
     1980-12-03 23:54:46	1704	     D:\Users\Paul\Videos\RaceQs\SPTM0003.MP4
     1980-12-04 00:23:09	751	     D:\Users\Paul\Videos\RaceQs\SPTM0004.MP4

    This is the metadata for one of them which I could only access with the Media Tab software following the instructions here.

    Encoded date                : UTC 1980-12-03 22:57:50
    Tagged date                 : UTC 1980-12-03 22:57:50
    Created date (UTC)          : UTC 2014-12-13 01:34:54.100
    Created date                : 2014-12-13 12:34:54.100
    Modified date (UTC)         : UTC 2014-12-13 02:03:20.000
    Modified date               : 2014-12-13 13:03:20.000

    The Encoded date seems to be the one used by RaceQs but the Created Date is the actual time set in the camera. Can you confirm which date RaceQs is using so I can modify it accordingly.
