Re: Poor quality when i see the video on the app/phone/computer

Are you talking about live streaming video?  If so, the app is only going to be able to play back the LRV (low resolution video) from the camera, you would have to download the actual recorded file to enable high quality playback.

 

Also you're watching the file playback on a tiny tiny screen and it's going to look good at that size, but once you blow it up for full size of course you'll notice it's not great quality because you're seeing the whole thing.  You need to make sure you're using the right settings and highest quality settings for viewing the footage well on a full sized monitor.
