What is the "fps" overlay? #297
You have two framerate settings in the settings panel: the first one (under the Video Device section) controls the capturing framerate. The second one (under the Video Streaming section) controls the streaming framerate.
Now they both are just "hints" for the underlying mechanism. That is, the actual capture framerate will depend on the performance of the device as well as on the available bandwidth when communicating with the camera.
The actual streaming framerate will also depend on the network bandwidth between the motionEye server and your browser, at least.
Having a higher streaming framerate than the capture one doesn't make too much sense, as many displayed frames will be duplicates of the previous ones. However this is not a bug and definitely not something to worry about. It often happens with network cameras when the netcam simply can't provide as many frames per second as requested.
I hope this makes sense and answers your question.
