    Hello,

    Thank you for your valuable suggestion. However, we only have the PC viewer available for Windows and MAC. But, our developers may consider creating a Linux Viewer if more customers will request for it. In the meantime, you can use either versions of PC viewer and the alternative mobile app (both available for Android and iOS users). Have a good day!

    I saw your mention of The BlackVue Web Application for Cloud in the following articles:

    I am also interested in the following projects:

    Mr.Brett Morrison seems to have a plan to develop his own browser UI.

    I was lead here also looking for a way to use the viewer on Linux. I no longer have any computers running Windows and have no plans to ever return to that OS. I almost got the viewer to work in a Windows 7 virtual machine (specifically VM Ware) but the viewer is unable to access the SD card because, I assume, it is specifically looking for a device that identifies as an SD card. In VM Ware I can only pass through the SD card as a virtual hard drive so while I can browse the SD card from within the VM, Blackvue Viewer refuses to access it. I can understand that restriction for formatting but it seems an unnecessary restriction for viewing. I haven't tried other VMs to see if they behave differently. I also tried Wine but that just crashed with an unhelpful error. No surprises there. I can still view the raw video files of course and, in truth, I probably don't really need the viewer but it is a bit frustrating not having the option in case the meta-data proves useful one day.

    I'm planning to buy DR750 and this is the first query page I'm landing. I believe most of the people who choose BlackVue over cheap chinese sypware have very high concern for security and privacy. As previous user 'trancer96' said one could get away with raw video but having native Gnu/Linux with meta data support suggests that company care and value customers convenience.

    Hoping to see this achieved soon.
