Re: Warning for Betternet VPN Users

No, he claims to have been warned by his ISP - as I say, true or not, I don't know. However, it's no effort to install a freebie extension these days and be sure.

Re: RE: Re: Warning for Betternet VPN Users

Question: Does anyone know of anybody being caught downloading or streaming movies etc using their real ISP? I've never heard of it happening in Thailand. I don't, but I've heard of people receiving warnings from their ISP. In Thailand?? Yes, a friend 'claims' to have received a message that he is ...

Re: Poor choice of dashcams on Lazada!

I don't suppose many of you could sleep last night in anticipation of my comparison video. Basically, I don't see any need to rush out and change my current dashcams soon. https://youtu.be/Cu97NqFuJyQ cameljockey, if your dashcam is majorly different in terms of video quality, I'd be grateful if you...

Re: Poor choice of dashcams on Lazada!

My cam is excellent (or I thought it was) during the day, but not so good at night, although it was used for a night time accident (I wasn't driving), and it was fine for insurance/police. At the end of the day, you need megga-quality for hit and run, and nothing else as far as I can think.

Re: Warning for Betternet VPN Users

I'd been having connectivity problems for a few weeks - in particular with this forum. I've had a few ding dongs with forum admin, but in the end they were right (they usually are :D ), the common denominator was Betternet. Switch it off, and everything was fine. Switch it on, and grind to a halt (a...

Re: Bat Cave near Cha Am

:laugh: Actually, without GPS it is very hard to find. My GPS took me across a dirt track through the middle of a field. This was particularly spectacular on the way home, when it was dark. Bats everywhere swooping down grabbing the bugs in my headlights. A shame I didn't have a dashcam back then - ...

Warning for Betternet VPN Users

I've been happily using Betternet Free VPN as an extension to Chrome ever since it was recommended on this Forum. In the beginning I regularly checked my IP Address to ensure what it was doing was what I wanted it to do. As time moved on, I became complacent. It has been playing up recently, regular...

Re: Poor choice of dashcams on Lazada!

Yes, my cards are not class 10 or anywhere near that. I was sold run of the mill SD cards when I bought the cameras, and have used them ever since. I'll see how the Go Pro comparison goes. If Go Pro gives similar results, I'll consider a better class of card.

I'm not sure anybody "condones" it but it is normal. At the least certainly not unusual.
There were a couple of members who didn't seem to think such antic were OK on a public highway. I will admit, I've just been back through the posts, and support wasn't as strong as I remembered. :oops:

Re: Poor choice of dashcams on Lazada!

BB, clarity of the videos depend on the resolution (i.e. number of pixels) the dashcam is rated for. Most these days can record at a true 1080 resolution at 30 fps (frames per second) . Don't settle for anything less than this . The front camera I got has a resolution of 1296, which helps with the ...
