When using Bosch plugins inside Milestone XProtect, you might run into issues with the Metadata stream.
Possible causes and solution(s)
Enhanced Metadata Plugin
The Bosch metadata rendering is not happening
No object classification is shown
Forensic Search Plugin
Search always bails out at the same point in time
or does not show results at all
Due to a bug in the Milestone Driver (up to device pack 12.7) the Bosch binary metadata stream is incompletely stored.
An easyworkaroundin this scenario is to change the Metadata streaming mode in XProtect from Bosch binary to 'Bosch binary & Onvif'. This can be set in the Metadata settings in the Milestone Management Client. Afinal fixneeds to come from Milestone with a Device Pack update.
