I recently purchased a Linksys LCAD03VLNOD outdoor bullet cam and set up Motion detection to save clips to a Samba share.
The problem I have is that the video clips are limited in size to a maximum of 6144Kb, which seems to be the same as the “Maximum Buffer Size”. This results in very short/small clips of the events (15-18 seconds @ 720p and 5-6 seconds @ 1080p), which makes them less useful in a real life event.
My question: Am I doing something wrong or is this camera incapable of recording longer clips?
Many thanks in advanced.

Here are the settings of the camera: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/g6at2yu86303nst/AADIzqBmpdvUh1fwbZ8NmGU8a?dl=0
I’m using VLC media player for mac to view the clips.
I have been playing with the Video-settings. By reducing the stream-quality I’m able to record longer clips with lower quality, but the clips are still limited by size to ~6Mb.
Are you able to record longer clips (10-20 mins) triggered by motion detection? How did you set up your system?

My files are more than 100 MB big. I go to max resolution normally. But that is for a recording on the NVR, I do not know if you are talking of a recording on the SD Card, or a Samba stream as it seems from your screenshots.
The motion detection has never worked properly, it is probably a computing power issue, but I have not tried a lot. There is a sepparate thread on that.
However, I cannot read the files on the NVR with VLC for Mac: What version? Did you install anything special to do it? The custommer support told me they are proprietary, aren't they then?
