    Codec Install Procedure
  1. Select and download codec version that matches the Multicam/VMS version in which the video was recorded with.
    (Find Multicam version on GV-DVR/NVR) (Find VMS version on GV-VMS)
    If you are not able to find the version the video was recorded with, you can try the most recent codec.
  2. Turn User Account Control Settings to Never Notify on Windows Control Panel. Reboot the PC afterwards.
