Yi Outdoor Security Camera App


I have 2 Yi outdoor security cameras and I view the videos on the "yi Home" app. I have not subscribed to their service since I use my own SD card and I watch all the playback as needed.

Today I went to playback some stuff and to my surprise I am only allowed to playback 1 day or 24 hours max. The app says I now need to upgrade to have playback beyond 24 hours.

Is this something new? I have an SD that can hold a lot more than a days worth of video but now it is basically rendered useless since the app won't let me watch more than a day of it!

Is there something I am missing?

Yeah, other option is to pull the microsd out, copy the videos and view them on a PC etc...
