How Do I Select Video Mode in IP Camera?

Are you wondering how to select video mode in your IP camera? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the steps to select video mode in your IP camera.

Step 1: Access the Camera’s Web Interface

To access the camera’s web interface, open a web browser and enter the IP address of your camera in the address bar. You should see a login page where you’ll need to enter your username and password.

Step 2: Navigate to Video Settings

Once you’re logged in, navigate to the video settings section of your camera’s web interface. This is where you can adjust various video settings including resolution, frame rate, and video mode.

Step 3: Select Video Mode

In the video settings section, look for an option that says “Video Mode”. This option may be located under a subcategory such as “Image” or “Video”. Once you find it, click on it to open a drop-down menu of available options.

Types of Video Modes:

  • Continuous Recording: This is the default mode for most cameras. It records continuously until the storage is full or until you stop recording manually.
  • Motion Detection: This mode only records when motion is detected within the camera’s field of view.

    This can save storage space and make it easier to find important footage.

  • Scheduled Recording: With this mode, you can set specific times for recording to start and stop. This is useful if you only need footage during certain hours or days.

Select Your Desired Video Mode

Once you’ve reviewed all available options and chosen your desired video mode, click on the “Save” or “Apply” button to save your changes. Your camera will now be set to record videos in the selected video mode.


Selecting the right video mode for your IP camera can make a big difference in terms of storage space, ease of use, and overall effectiveness. By following the steps outlined in this tutorial, you’ll be able to select the perfect video mode for your needs and start recording videos with confidence.
