I originally thought I needed to have the [same] "plus" manufacture... then caught messages from John here, as well as far less authoritative indices that the recorder doesn't have to "link" with the camera for either H.265, or a plus status to be specifically compatible in all cases.
However, given my new (and obviously wise) direction to investigate Milestone, learning that it often doesn't support the H.265 designation of cameras is disappointing and now, makes me curious as to what specifically regulates the feature.
My Dahua NVR doesn't recognize Cantonk H.265... Macs don't via browser, however, they do if you manually open a plugin each time, for some models of cameras.
Plus might deactivate smart features or lower framerates! Which is very disappointing...
The thread here, for me is how curious it is that ONVIF may or may not receive H.265.
Is this a matter of incentives?
I want the advantages of H.265 - and have spent money to explicitly go after it unless I get an incredible deal on something that compels me to get an H.264.
Off topic "asides" and PSs:
Is there any way for me to use the advantages of the Fisheye directly through the VMS of my Dahua? Or am I better served using the VMS of the Bosch 7000 MP...?
A good fisheye like Bosch is wizardry. I cannot BELIEVE how cool this thing is. One day, when a 20MP comes out I will buy that, too. Just amazing.
