At what bitrate do I
1. start losing noticeable quality with H.264s bitrate?
2. decrease the life-span by making the SoC/Processor over-work?
3. what would you guys typically regard as optimal?
I can increase the duration of my storage... but I'd rather buy more hard drives than burn out cameras... or get crappy images in playback.
How do I know the optimal bitrate for the cameras I have...so I don't over-work them by making them work harder trying to compress data to a higher degree all day -- when these things don't (to my knowledge) have fans in them...
I don't want to burn the cameras out
I don't want to waste HDD space
I don't want to needlessly undermine the video quality
Should I post the models of camera here?
OBVIOUSLY, I'd love to use H.265 -- which all my cameras have, but Milestone has merely casually forgotten to work on any of the units I have.
It's a super cool and incredibly manageably system, but!
I have 2 identical hikvision cameras; it finds one but not the other?
I've chosen "Manually select" With the IP address entered, UN/PW, Port, and it's same model selected.... finds temporarily - and then CANNOT find the camera? Hours and hours of trying? But I can log in to it from any computer's browser?
CANNOT find my bosch Fisheye 70122 , thought it's on the supported list!? Just bizarre stuff....
Am I the only one frothing at the bit to get H.265 drivers for the equipment I own in the Milestone ecosystem ... I cannot WAIT for this bandwidth savings. Am I alone here?
I'll wait a while and see.
