DVR: recording ID uniqueness across devices?

Post by djp952 » Tue Oct 15, 2019 5:30 pm

Does the id= value embedded in the CmdURL and the PlayURL supplied by the RECORD engine have any guarantees of uniqueness across multiple RECORD engines? I'd like to change some things around in my application to use this as a primary key on a database table, for example, but if the value is not guaranteed to be unique across multiple DVR engines (on a single user's network) I will need to create a composite key, likely along with the DeviceID/StorageID instead.

"PlayURL":"..../recorded/play?id=9a3f26e8"

Thank you!
