On Windows 10, I uninstalled the previous version of Vidoo and Virtual Box and removed the existing Vidoo controller from my Vera account.

I then installed the msi and ran the Vidoo app, installed Virtual Box and restarted the PC.

The version of Virtual Box that it downloaded for me was: VirtualBox-6.1.22-144080-Win.exe

Launched the Vidoo app again and it opened Virtual Box application. I then see this prompt. I clicked OK.


The VM could then be seen up and running and in the Vidoo app I then saw a login screen.

Logged in with my Vera account username and password, the little eye icon still doesn’t work to show the password.

Looks like its remembered some settings from the previous installation, as I have two of my cameras already added in the Cameras and Live Video area.

I played one of my Hikvision cameras and the PC’s CPU is still pegged at 100% is there a setting to enable for hardware decoding? I can’t see any settings at all for the Vidoo app?

I then played another Ezviz cam and that pegs the CPU at 100% also.


How does one now add the virtual controller to the Vera account?

Selecting “Refresh” from the “Refresh” menu logs you out and your username is not remembered even though I ticked the box that says “Remember Me”.

Is it expected that doing a refresh of the app logs you out?

Looking at my Vera account at I can see no new Vidoo Controller in there listed.

Hi @cw-kid

sure there is a readme file inside the zipped installation files. I’m putting it also here for easy access

Nope, Refresh should not log you out, we are looking into that right now. We will check also remember me section.
Thanks a lot for your input.

Great thanks.

How about the CPU load? I was hoping that might have been fixed…

EDIT: Actually CPU is at 100% just with the Vidoo app opened and sat on the Activities screen, never mind playing back live video feeds off the camera.
