I've just installed my dashcam and I'm disappointed by the video quality. I'm getting a lot of compression artifacts which makes number plates unreadable unless they're very close or there's no movement. Here's an example movie:https://youtu.be/jUSsG0EjeLQ

In the manual it says that the Lukas viewer should show the image quality at the bottom right of the screen but I'm not seeing anything. I've tried changing the video quality to "highest" in the viewer but I'm not seeing any difference. Here's what I did, step by step:
1) Put the SD card in the card reader
2) Opened Lukas viewer
3) Selected the SD card (top level, not one of its subfolders)
4) Went to settings and changed quality
5) Clicked "save"

Am I missing something or is this the quality I should be getting and my expectations are simply too high?

Did you set the quality of the video for the camera itself, not for the viewer?

Since you can also adjust other things such as GPS settings and G-sensor and motion sensing sensitivity, I'm assuming they are the camera settings.

The strange thing is that the live view on my phone seems much more detailed but of course I can't test that while driving.
