In our new video, we show how The Boring Toolbox makes it simple to enable adaptive streaming in Milestone XProtect. This feature improves Smart Client performance by lowering stream resolution and saving bandwidth. It’s great for admins who watch videos in many small tiles.
Normally, you’d have to set up adaptive streaming for each camera one-by-one. The Boring Toolbox changes this by letting you update the settings on all of your cameras at once.
Quick overview of what adaptive streaming is
Setting Up Video Streams: Configuring multiple streams per camera with varying resolutions and frame rates.
Camera Settings Adjustment: Use The Boring Toolbox to adjust settings like codec, frame rate, resolution, and streaming mode
Creating Device Groups for Axis and Hanwha cameras makes using the Boring Toolbox, facilitating bulk configuration changes.
Stream Setup for Device Groups: Set up streams by device group, ensuring each group’s cameras receive the correct stream configuration.
Enabling Adaptive Streaming in Smart Client Profiles: This is necessary for the functionality to work in the Milestone Smart Client.
