What Is The Average Frame Size Of An IP Camera?

People sometimes ask and vendors sometimes list a 'frame size' for an IP camera. For example, the frame size is 20KB. So if you have 30fps, then the bitrate would be 4.8Mb/s (20KB x 30fps x 8 bits / byte).

Frame sizes for modern H.264 are highly misleading and I recommend not to use them.

Why?

The frame size is a function of a number of different factors (even beside...
