I am using this camera's wireless capability. Whenever I am viewing live footage or if I record some footage and then play it back the video is choppy. It is not fluid and doesn't seem like it is showing 30fps even though I set it for 30fps in the settings.

However sometimes the video is fluid and normal, but usually it is choppy. Is it because I am using it wirelessly? Would it fix the problem if I connected it via the ethernet cable?

WiFi has limitations and these small inexpensive cameras have weak radios to begin with, so don't compare it to reception you get with a laptop. I got rid of all my WiFi cameras in my house and replaced with PoE cameras.

Also, 30fps is a maximum, and is usually highly exaggerated. Many times, when you are not in full sunlight, you may only get 5-10fps on an inexpensive camera because they use a cheap sensor and lenses, so they need to extend exposure time to compensate thereby lowering fps. Even expensive cameras do this, but maybe not as bad. I find it funny when someone picks a camera that is 30fps over one that is 15fps when both really do 10fps in real world situations, its just one manufacturer bends the truth less.
