In the web based user interface, the 'Setup > H264 > camera mode' offers a limited amount of options.
For instance, in a IQD31 camera, the options are:
- H264 720P + MJPEG 720P
- H264 720P + H264 480P
- H264 720P + MJPEG 480P
What if you need a different configuration, for instance H264 720P + H.264 SIF (352x240) ?
That is possible!
Apart from the options offered in the web based user interface, you can select various other camera modes.
You can set OID 22.214.171.124 (camera mode) to a different value.
For instance, if you set OID 126.96.36.199 to mode7
This will set the camera to deliver:
- H.264 720p (1280x720) + H.264 SIF (352x240) + MJPEG (352x240 1FPS)
Now you can use the camera in the desired stream config H264 720P + H.264 SIF (352x240)
All possible camera modes for all models can be found in our API manuals, in section 10.2.1 "IQ732/IQ832/IQD3xx/IQM3xx modes of operation" on page 37.
You can set a specific camera mode by using the following in your browser:
http://x.x.x.x/set.oid?OidTB188.8.131.52=mode7 (Where x.x.x.x is your camera IP address)
The camera will ask for username/password if not already provided.
The camera mode will be preserved after a power-cycle or reboot.
