    Hello everybody, Take care about FF 52.0, many cameras may not show their video stream or controls anymore (for example the camera will say OCX/ActiveX not installed and propose to download/install it again and again) so you should keep FF 51.0.1 somewhere (and turn off auto-update once...

    Good dashcam with interchangeable lens ?

    Hello, Dashcams usually use ultra wide angle lens and because of it you see a very large field that's cool but it provide much lesser details because the view point is "more remote" so you get less details for Plate ID or people's face details.
