Hi I have 3G router with a ip camera connected to it. Using mpeg4. With in a couple of hours of viewing my ip camera over the 3G network I have already used 1gb of data. Is there anything I can do I only need video not audio...... I have the option of frame rates from 5 to 30.    
 Frame Rate & Resolutions      Up to 30(NTSC) / 25(PAL) fps at 640x480, 320x240, 160x120

Video Streaming       avalable on my camera is Simultaneous Motion JPEG and MPEG-4 Or H.264

What I need is good quality but low data usage over 3G
My data limit is 10gb over a month
What is my best option or witch video streaming is best for my situation
Or dose anyone have a similar setup that might work

The 2 ip cameras I have are in the links below

    The 3 formats you listed are in order of highest to lowest bandwidth use...  so H.264 should use the least amount of bandwidth.

    Lower frame rates will use less bandwidth, as will smaller resolutions. You'll have to figure out the balance on those to fit your precise needs.  If you don't need fast motion capture, a larger resolution with lower frame rate might be the proper balance. 5 frames per second is still a lot of information, suitable for many purposes; 30 frames per second is television quality.
