    Looking at this physical ID is needed because some devices will not generate with MAC :)

    I feel like physical ID for identifying footage is good, like if you replace a camera under the came record you can maybe track which footage was for each one?

    I'm aware that not all of the devices will provide a MAC depending on how Onvif is communicating, which is why I understand the need for the UUID.  But that's where the question comes in of "why use the UUID at all instead of just using the "Camera ID" that is found under "camera settings" when writing the directory to store the footage?"  Since both the camera ID and UUID are server created, it seems logical to me to change the parameters to only use the camera ID instead of the MAC or UUID when writing to the current 5.x directory path.  This way, its very easy to know what directory to use without the use of API, and the directory is much more visually organized.  This eliminates the need for the MAC or UUID information for the directory and makes it much easier to work with in the future.
