Step3 - Change the settings of one channel The “Delete Channel” button will delete a channel’s settings and restore this channel to null. The “Change Status” button will change this channel between an active and inactive status. Local If you select the Local option the highlighted channel will be able to capture video from any cameras (or other devices) directly connected to the local computer. Within the Local section you can select the video source, size, frame-rate and audio source. If you have TV card this is where the desired channel selection is made. Net If you select the Net option the highlighted channel will connect to a remote network cameras or remote computer that is also running H264WebCam software. The network address must be a dotted decimal IP Address such as 184.108.40.206 , or a domain such as timhillone.dyndns.org. You also can set a pc name that can be resolved through name services (such as DNS) on the local network.. Also you can select “H264 User” and enter a user name such as “timhillone” or “Mike.” However, you must be sure that you have run our Exalted version at remote, and have host this H264 user name “timhillone” or “Mike” already! This H264 User is designed for people who use dial up to connect to the internet and which in turn causes the IP Address to change frequently. If this H264 User should be valid for remote user connections that are fixed/dedicated like a cable modem or even a T1. Once you input remote user name and password to access the remote program be sure to select the desired remote channel which you wish to monitor.

This window will provide an entrance to setup the video and audio encoder parameter for each available channel. Step 1 - Select the channel. Click the button to select one desired channel. If you select “All Channel” in list, your new settings will be copied to all channels! Step 2 - Select one record format in list, then change video encode type, audio encode type, bit-rate, and some OSD information! Such as channel title, date osd and time osd. a) If you want to record one channel to MP4, MOV files, you can select H264, XVID or Mpeg4 video encoder type along with AAC audio encoder. b) If you want to record one channel to FLV, SWF files, you can select H264, FLV1 video encoder type along with MP3 audio encoder. c) If you want to record one channel to ASF files, you can select MSMPEG4, WMV3 video encoder and MP3, WMA audio encoder. d) If this channel will connect to an ip camera, our software will directly get video stream and audio stream from it. But if it’s encoder type can not be compatible with the record type of this channel, our software will re-encode video or audio to an appropriate format, this will cost more cpu resource! AVI file format can hold many encoder, so you can select an appropriate encoder to avoid re-encode video. e) To avoid one record file is too long, you can select every 20 minutes to change new record file, or every 45 minutes to switch record file! AVI, MP4, MOV file format need to be close exactly, otherwise all this file can not be played normally! f) For all channels, you can change the record format, such as AVI, MP4, FLV etc, but you can not select video encoder and video bitrate for some ip cameras, such as mpeg4 ip camera, H.264 ip cameras! Because our software will directly save the raw video stream getting from the ip camera to record files! Or our software will automatically select a right video encoder for your record format. g) The channel record format will influence the remote viewer, such as “Win Media Viewer” need ASF or WMV record format! “QuickTime Viewer” and “RealPlayer Viewer” need MP4 or MOV record format! “Flash Viewer” need FLV or SWF record format!

This set the record file in two time segments. You need to assure the ending time must > the beginning time! The 8pm->8am is wrong setting! Step 4 - Set the motion detect parameter The video can be divided into a 64(8*8) grid style region. You can select(unselect) each region ‘s status independently. A region is set (or actively monitored) when the diamond icon is displayed. The software will check this region of the video for motion. You simply click the image directly to activate/deactivate the status of each region. a) The Recording Time after Motion is the duration of recording will occur when activated.

If you don’t need the pre-record function, you can set this parameter to 0, then it will save more cpu resource for encoding! b) Motion sensitivity is the video motion grade used during detection. If you set to 0, all video will be regarded as motion status. If you set to 255, then all video will not be regarded as no motion. The recommended value should be set between 3 to 6. c) Motion audio alarm activates or deactivates the systems internal speaker to ‘Beep’ informing you when motion is detected. This setting can be checked/unchecked (on/off) without impacting the actual recording. d) The button “Motion Test” is used to test the video motion detection settings. It allows you to test the motion sensitivity value’s effectiveness in your particular environment. e) The “Run a Program” item means you can select a application program in disk, our software will automatically run this program when video start moving.
