Reduce client CPU usage and bandwidth by enabling Substreaming support

By default version 3 uses the full resolution stream like in version 2. There are two ways to use a lower resolution stream -

a) Settings -> Livestream reencoding settings:

Then click ‘Enable livestream reencoding’:

b) **Only if your camera supports sub streaming AND you know the RTSP sub stream patch **

Settings -> Properties

Click ‘Use substream for live view’

Then insert the Substream path:

Awesome, this will help cut down on CPU overhead for thin clients :slight_smile:

After installing version 3 I am no more able to watch the live view, both with normal stream and substream. The logs are ok…
