Turning Off the Tweet Sound

Postby brianlrichards » 10 Apr 2015, 15:32

Is there a way in the code to turn off the tweet sound the camera makes when using the Interval Timer?

Use setAudioVolume, like:
Code: Select all
[session setAudioVolume:0];


API & SDK document is wrong

Code: Select all
// Shutter volume
//     0-100
NSUInteger audioVolume = [session getAudioVolume];
[session setTimelapseInterval: 100];



should be

Code: Select all
// Shutter volume
//     0-100
NSUInteger audioVolume = [session getAudioVolume];
[session setAudioVolume: 100];

Thanks koushikou for the correction.

I have found this function is currently only available in one app, ThetaZero (Android), if anyone is developing new apps please add this option to adjust or at least to set to Shutter volume to zero, as there are times when it would be really useful to turn off the shutter Tweet Sound. This would be useful as a general setting whatever the mode.

Thanks for your kind reminder

I submitted my app "SphereCam" (for iOS) with Shutter volume control (On/Off) feature yesterday and waiting approve :)

Just downloaded the app but it wouldn't work for me. This isn't really the place to explain so I sent an email to the address on the support site.

Did you ever find an answer to this? I was wondering the same thing. There has to be a way to turn the sound off. Please let me know. Thank you

Also, you can do it from the terminal if you want a quick fix, using some curl requests :)

First start a session with it (once you've connected to its wifi ofc!):
Code: Select all
curl -d '{"name":"camera.startSession", "parameters":{} }' http://192.168.1.1/osc/commands/execute


Then turn the sound off (Make sure the sessionId matches the one you got back from the above request!):
Code: Select all
curl -d '{"name": "camera.setOptions", "parameters":{"sessionId":"SID_0001", "options":{"_shutterVolume":0}} }' http://192.168.1.1/osc/commands/execute
