Hello, I tried 3 phones as cameras: iPhone 4, Galaxy S5, and iPhone 7 Plus.
Due to the major improvement in hardware between the 4 and 7 Plus I expected to get a radically different image from the 7. However, I could see in the webapp viewer that they all produce very choppy and grainy video. Definitely not close to the HD resolution I paid for.
Now I have experience in editing and producing video and I could see in the sidebar that the bitrate for all 3 phones was limited to some ranges of 50-100 kiloBytes. And that’s assuming the designer didn’t mislabel it and it’s actually kiloBit, which is more commonly used to measure bandwidth.
my iPhone can record video at up to 100 megabits, and my internet connection can handle 100 megabits upload and much more on the download site, so I’m wondering what is up with the “premium” bitrate being limited to such a low rate. I know it’s not the problem with my set-up, I can open up facetime and get crystal clear video here. Can you please tell me if there is anyway I can get a better bitrate and get sharper video?
