So I will leave it running this way,
Do not fix it if it works!
For the other poster, as the system is just writing video to disk
using a shorter cache (by writing it more often to harddisk) has no bad side affects,
the stuff will have to be written to disk anyways.
In fact the writing periods will be more often and shorter,
but it is the same amount of data,
Writing to disk more often causes less long interrupts
and keeps more memory available.
In fact Linux caching results in a high video delay on some of my systems (PCs)!
20 seconds for mcamip is normal!
Also it is a security risk, in case of a power failure you lose the last
(likely most important part where you see the bad guy cutting the cables) 20 seconds.
