I currently have six cameras streaming live video over the web and everything works great, except it consumes a tremendous amount of bandwidth on my gigabit network. e.g. it lowers SMB speed from my NAS from 110 MBPS down to 67-70 if I have one or two windows open
I’ve discovered that if I use jpeg as the type, and increase the , 40) in the html to ,1200) so it does not refresh very often, I can significantly reduce the consumption and impact on my other traffic.
It seems like even though I’m resizing all six camera to fit on one webpage, it is streaming them at full 1080p resolution - so my question is:
- what is the best balance of lowering my bandwidth and quality?
- is there a way to streaming at a lower resolution?
I’ve tried the html generated from both the .mpeg and .jpeg options. Again, everything works great when the delay is set to 40, I have the CPU, ram, etc at the server end, just trying to lower my traffic footprint and find the sweet spot - so far I can only improve via increase the refresh.
Thanks in advance for any help/ideas!
