Video clip size very limited - Linksys LCAD03VLNOD

[ Edited ]

Hi all,

 

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.

Mine does not do that, they are longer.

 

With what software do you read them by the way?

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?
