Re: FFMPEG passthrough can not play video & what are best libraries?

Re: FFMPEG passthrough can not play video & what are best libraries?

After you get it working on VLC look into the tools menu -> codec (Ctrl+J)
to get the exact resolution especially Android IP webcam have some "interesting" resolutions.
u can change that from the android app (video options)

Re: Improving performance in constant preview scenario

Use low bandwidth option in zmninja settings.

Every monitor will update every 10 secs or something.
i think there is an option to change that.
