Find the following lines and update them to the following.
- daemon on
- stream_localhost off
Note: Change the following two lines from on to off if you’re having issues with the stream freezing whenever motion occurs.
- picture_output off
- movie_output off
Optional (Don’t include the text after the #)
- stream_maxrate 100 # This change will allow for real-time streaming but requires more bandwidth & resources. Needs to be added to the config file, default is 1
- framerate 100 # Changing this option will allow for 100 frames to be captured per second allowing for smoother video, default is 50
- width 640 #This line changes the width of the image displayed, default is 640
- height 480 #This option changes the height of the image displayed, default is 480
Altering these options can drastically affect the performance. You may need to tinker to get the best results.
