I'm having trouble finding the source for this choppy video in my recent installation. It's hard to notice, but if you look at the bubbles in the video, there is a slight pause every second or so.
[Update: this has been solved. Solution inside.]
I've checked each camera's direct feed video through a web browser and no chop. No errors posted in VMS, switch functioning properly, I've turned off motion on VMS side, & fps is @ 12. I even emptied all video files from the storage drive to start with a clean slate, but no go. Viewing & recording is occurring on same station. I am recording at 'Best" resolution, but with only 15 cameras installed that shouldn't be an issue. Any ideas?
