Hi Justin!  Love the video. I’m using a MacBook pro, retina display. For some reason I can watch videos from Youtube in HD , 4K fine. When I’m  viewing the footage from my cameras, 4K is fine but HD is horrible. It should be able to handle HD. I never changed any settings, same with my new iMac desktop. Do you know the problem is?   Thank you!!
