    A few notes about installing MegaFuse, to get it to compile on Ubuntu 15.10 I had to do the following:

    – Instead of installing the libdb5.1++-dev library, install libdb++-dev.
    – Install pkg-config: sudo apt-get install pkg-config
    – Set the 64 bit flags: CXXFLAGS=”-D_FILE_OFFSET_BiTS=64″ CFLAGS=”-D_FILE_OFFSET_BiTS=64″

    They’re not chest straps, there 2 narrow ones, and 2 larger ones. But they’re not long enough to go around your chest. They could be the right size to use as an arm strap, but I’ve never tried it. I know you can pick up a head and chest strap kit for $13, http://wireandfrost.com/best-action-camera-accessories/

    Not sure, I just noticed the Amazon listing is down. You should check out the Lightdow LD6000 its very similar.

    Ravi, I would be very surprised if Adsoptimal ever comes back online. I have a feeling they owe Publishers a lot more than they can pay and they are packing up shop with what they have left. It’s unfortunate that they stole from most of us.

    Steve, you may want to check how you have the camera positioned in the case. When its in the case, you have to press a button that presses the button on the camera. You also have to very firmly press the button to ensure the camera OK button gets depressed.

    Having a lot of red and orange color does not sound normal, yours may be defective. You shouldn’t need to adjust anything. But I would suggest testing outside. This camera is really designed for outdoor lighting. I’ve done some video indoors and its kind of dark and can also look a bit grainy. So test outside next.

    Hi Francis, sounds like you’re having 2 different issues, and the instructions are a little on the small side.

    To import videos to a computer the easiest way is to take the camera out of the case, remove the microSD card, put the microSD card into an SD card adapter, and put it into your computer. You can then copy the movies and photos off by dragging and dropping the files to your computer.

    Using the wifi connection can be a little harder. Here’s what I noticed, because the camera works by creating its own wifi signal, if you are at home your phone will want to join your home wifi first and not connect to the camera wifi. Try disabling the “Ask to Join Networks” feature, and then manually connect to the camera wifi. Here’s a step by step guide, https://snapguide.com/guides/disable-wifi-auto-connect-on-iphone/.
