Just installed 2 x HiKam S5 Minis. Good cams, pretty happy. I’ve got them running through Netcam on an old AMD Dual Core HTTP setup.
Problem 1 is… When I select ONVIF to connect to Camera 1 or 2…although the cameras are password protected it will still work without? (Probably not the fault of Netcam…I will get on to HiKam about this too!)
Problem 2 (the main issue) - As I am using a fairly old setup running 2 cams the CPU gets hammered. However, I have used the 720HD stream on camera 1 and it comes through fine, then I change the stream to the lower resolution stream and then back again…then I get an altogether new resolution 640x360. Now ,this resolution is not 720HD nor is it the lower stream of 320x180 so it basically not on offer from the camera?!?
On camera 2, I can select the HD stream or the lower 320 stream without issue…this works as expected. Thing is, this odd resolution of 640x360 lets my AMD CPU breath and reduced the load considerably. Eventhough this seems to be a bug/Glitch, I cannot reproduce this for camera 2 no matter how hard I try…as settingg them both to this mysterios resolution of 640x360 would be doing me a favor…
Any idea what is going on? Pics attached. (EDIT: can only upload 1 pic as a new user here)
