Ubiquiti G3 Flex

I am still new to AREDN. I have a small mesh with 2 Ubiquiti NanoStation Loco 2 and 2 NanoBridge 5G22 with an EdgeSwitch 5xp up and running. VLAN 1,2,10 and 20. A laptop connected via VLAN 10 to a NS2, a UVC G3 Flex via VLAN 20 to a NB5, and the two radios connected via VLAN 2. I can connect from the laptop to any of the nodes via mesh. I get pictures from the camera on the laptop, but only at about 1 to 2 pps. It should be possible to get realtime video (25 or 30 pps) on the laptop. Do I have to set up a service on the NB5 node or what? I have tried to put the rtsp link in the address field of VLC, but no picture. The laptop is running Ubuntu 19.10 with Firefox and VLC.

distance setting?

Hans-Petter,   check the distance settings.  If you are using the nightly build version, where auto distance is the default, it is not very good performance on the bench and very short distances.   Change distance settings to the minimum for better performance regardless of firmware version.   

Auto Distance in the nightly build works very well and is optimum for P2P links, I saw 30%+ iperf improvement on a 40 mi link.   With many neighbors of a wide variety of distance, it may be better or worse than a static setting.  On the bench auto distance is terrible...

I routinely do many HD streams over the mesh and many hops.  I generally reduce video quality to 15fps and 1Mbps or less so that I can do many streams at once and have a video window of all the mountain top cams in SoCal.

I am now running a near

I am now running a near minimal configuration. Just one Ns2 and one NB5 connected to a switch DtD. Port 1: laptop, port 2: NS2, port 3: NB5 and port 4: UVC G3 Flex. I am not using the nightly; should I? The Distance on NB5 was too high (61 km). Reset to 1km. The RTSP stream was set to high, 1920x1080 25 fps. No picture in VLC, but the sound came trough. I changed to medium 1024x576 25 fps. Video and sound OK. It is a delay of about 1 second.

No need to run the nightly

No need to run the nightly version unless wanting to benefit from latest features.  The nightly build features aren't specific to performance tuning the video stream between the laptop and an ipcam.   Except to ensure there is a distance setting auto/static that is not impacting performance.    Another option is to connect the laptop and the ipCam directly together with a cat5 cable and have both devices assigned a static IP address to communicate.   Troubleshoot the ipcam configuration to get everything dialed-in and working.  This takes a 'network' out of scope and suspect if something isn't working.

I have now connected the camera direct to the laptop. It is no big difference in behavior. The stream last only for a short time (less than one minute). Is that a setting in VLC I have not seen, or in the camera setup.
