6.Click Apply.
7.Go to Live video section.

Here you can see the video, the link to which you have specified.

3.4Video Streaming (optionally)

This section allows you to configure the following parameters of displaying video:

Encoder and resolution (pixels) of the video (selected in the dropdown).

Frame rate (frame per second) denotes how many frames per second are captured by the video camera connected to the device. This parameter is uneditable and shown just for information.

Encoding interval (number of frames) denotes at which rate the frames coming from the camera are encoded. For example, when encoding interval comprises 25, it means that 1 frame from 25 captured per second is encoded and transmitted to the user. The maximum value reduces the load to the channel, but may cause skipping information from the frames that were not encoded. Reducing encoding interval will increase the frequency of picture update, as well as the load to the channel. The parameter is set with the help of slider bar.

Bitrate limit (kbps) is the amount of information required to play one second of video. The less the bitrate is, the less the final video file size will be. But when the bitrate is considerably reduced, the program will have to use stronger compression algorithms, which reduces video quality, too. The value is entered manually or with the help of spin box.

Quality is the parameter which enables to reduce the load to the channel by means of reducing the picture definition. The parameter is set with the help of slider bar: the left most position corresponds to the highest picture definition, the right most to the lowest load to the video channel.

GOV length is possible to edit only in case the encoder is Н264. This parameter denotes the length of picture group between the two key frames. The higher this value is, the less is the load to the network, but the quality of the video is affected. The value is entered manually or with the help of spin box.
