Saw high speed frames in one scenario
« on: December 13, 2012, 10:17:59 AM »
I have been using your software for few years. Loved it.

One discovery: On iOS device, if showing all videos (4 cameras in my case) on one screen, the frames per seconds jump up to video like which is about 10 to 15 pictures per second. It helps a lot for seeing people walking around etc.

If zoomed to one video, it goes to 1 frames per second.

Why different?

Is there an option to use high frames per second just like I mentioned? I think there is trade off between full resolution in one camera full screen vs. lower resolution/high FPS?

Bottom line: We would like to see live video with high FPS in single camera view. Its possible already.

On local Wi-Fi, you should see a few frames per second.
On a remote Wi-Fi hot spot, you should see about a frame per second.
On 3G, Apple requires us to keep the framerate less than 1 frame every 2 seconds (0.5 fps).  This has been the limit since iCam was first released.
On EDGE, you'll probably see about one frame every 5 seconds or so, or as low as 1 frame every 10 seconds if you have a poor EDGE signal.

If the framerate you're seeing is significantly lower than that, please let us know what framerate you are seeing and what connection type you're using.

Actually it the opposite. On iPhone 5 I saw fluid movement on wifi in split videos. Great!

On ipad 3 with wifi connection, it's about 1 FPS.

Maybe a bug if using fast processor like iPhone 5? Don't fix this!

Apple should allow any FPS speed on wifi.
