I have Orchid running on a VM and hooked up to a single IP camera. The display quality from the camera over the local Orchid server is terrible. It is very very laggy.

I also have Zoneminder running on another VM with the exact same setup and no issues with the camera.

I installed nethogs on the VM to see program bandwidth usage. As you can see below the application is not seeing any sent data, which seems strange because I do get some sort of footage on the web portal.

Any ideas on how I can improve the video quality? I think something is blocking packets being sent. This is all on a local network if that helps. Thanks a lot.
