Bandwidth question


#1

Could somebody please confirm my thoughts regarding bandwidth?

On my “camera site” I have four cameras with limited internet bandwidth (approx. 5 Mbit in upload). My thought is to setup a netcam server on a different “server site” that has approx. 100 Mbit bandwidth in upload capacity.

Am I correct in assuming that if all clients connect to the “server site” instead of directly to the “camera site” I’m only limited by the “server site” bandwidth?

Hello!
Yes, you are absolutely correct.
Make sure that 5Mbit is enough to pass 4 video streams with your current quality settings and frame rate. This is still a bottleneck.

Sounds good, thanks for the reply …
