It's not like we have much choice. Very high-end camera are out of reach of the average consumer, and the model you're showing, price / performance, is definitely not "cheap".  Cheap would be a 10 euros webcam.

A camera half that price performed very reliably in not-so-good condition, with glare from street lights, contrejour lighting, and cold temperatures. So you just have gotten a lemon, and that happens with the best of brands.

Some cameras have a auto contrast/lighting settings or outdoor/indoor mode. I just bought some cheap PTZ wireless cameras for ~$50 US and they are pretty good (for the money), but the auto lighting mode works pretty well. Even one camera I have is over six years old and was outside most of that time and it doesn't produce video like you are seeing.

(3gp is only for the rapid compression)

The original recording is about 750MB and 42min where nothing move, just
flashing..
All other files are ok.. Only this..

What can be the problem ?
Can be the stupid camera firmware ?
