Yes, this really sucks so we have to do something about it since the camera is a good one
First, you say that you added a second one to your configuration. Did it work fine in NCS with only one camera or did I misunderstand that?
Second, that you get hundreds of false alerts with Motion Detection tells me that MD works correct. If you feed something with garbage you also get garbage out meaning that feeding MD with that video it will not give any good results. MD in the frame mode compare frames from the camera every 0,25 sec. in default and if they are different MD is triggered and a video is recorded. I bet that most of these recorded videos are about 10 seconds long.
So if you are interested I´d like to propose some tests to see if we can fix this. Alternative is if you can give me access to the camera so I can do the tests here on my system or access with TeamViewer? I suggests changes in NCS and in the camera configuration. The problem can depend on one single parameter or a combination of parameters which makes it tricky, but here we go.
1.If NCS need more resources to do the encoding you can do the following test. IN the Settings go to:
If you have a licensed version you can enable Multi Threading to give the process more resources. I don´t think it is this, but if you can test this. An alternative is to change Decoding Library.
2.Add the camera using the Custom URL that you use. Usually, the Stream type is set to RTSP_TCP. Change that to RTSP_UDP and see what happens, if the camera support UDP stream.
3.Login to the configuration of the camera:
H.264 Proﬁle: Reolink can support Baseline/Main/High proﬁle .
• BaseLine :The basic image, short delay and less competitive
• Main: Main Image ,with high encoding
• High: Super image, used for streaming applications.
Change between these modes and see if it gets better. Please, after each change go to NCS and the Menu Edit video source for the camera and save the settings again so it restarts.
4.If I have the correct manual you should have this menu:
Here you can change the Frame rate, Max Bitrate and H264 Profile as discussed above. Frame rate should not cause any problems, but test to lower the Bitrate in combination with different H.264 Profiles and see if it changes the video to the better.
I hope you have time for this. Alternative, if I can get access to the camera or use TeamViewer to access your computer.
