What are video qualities on "Optimized" and "Best Battery Life"?

Best Video = 4k is Given 

Optimized = 1080p? 720p? 480p?

Best Battery Life = 720p? 480p? 360p?

If I may ask anyone who owns Ultra Cam, can confirm these settings please? Thank you! 

I guess am assuming the default is 1080p since 4K is a paid plan? Are the settings different from Arlo Pro2?

Without 4k, it's similar to the Pro 2 with the exception of the FOV and the settings for Full, Wide and Super Wide.

I did a test for you.  The results are:

Best Video = 4k 

Optimized = 4K

Best Battery Life = 4K

 

I expected the only difference to be in the compression.  However, all three files are about the same size and the video quality looks about the same.

 

So, I'm not certain this setting actually works at the moment.

I hink the question was about NO 4k. What about testing with it turned off?

Could be., but In any case wouldn’t one expect the three video settings to have some effect on the quality, resolution, or bit rate? They don’t.
