Security Camera Recording Software
VLC, while more or less universal as an RTSP stream player, has its limitations and drawbacks, especially in the realm of video surveillance. When using FFmpeg for video stream re-streaming or for adjusting video resolutions, significant computer resources are required. Designing proprietary libraries and players to display videos from a vast array of IP cameras is labor-intensive. As a result, many systems carry the disadvantages and problems of decades of open-source solution development.
One notable issue is that the FFmpeg development for 32-bit systems has been discontinued for a while. Many users still want to repurpose older computers, which are adequate for video recording and intelligent detection. Therefore, there are many outdated systems on the market, the core of which was developed 10-15 years ago, with interfaces that often appear outdated. New systems target 64-bit architectures and newer, more expensive hardware but often remain unstable over long operations.
