Note:When your camera page shows an error as the below picture 1, you need to enter the “encode” page on our Reolink client software to change the “H.264 Profile” into “Baseline”.



You can’t change the H.264 Profile of “MainStream” and “SubStream” at the same time. You have to change it one by one.
