RTSP AND HTTP SETUP AND VIDEO STREAM TEST

RTSP without Authentication (NVR/DVR/IPC/Encoder)

rtsp://<IP address of device>:<RTSP port>/Streaming/channels/<channel number><stream number>

NOTE: <stream number> represents main stream (01), or the sub stream (02)

Example:

rtsp://173.200.91.70:10554/Streaming/channels/101 – get the main stream of the 1st channel

rtsp://173.200.91.70:10554/Streaming/channels/102 – get the sub stream of the 1st ch

RTSP with Authentication

rtsp://<username>:<password>@<IP address of device>:<RTSP port>/Streaming/channels/<channel

number><stream number>

Example:

rtsp://NEC:guest@173.200.91.70:10554/Streaming/channels/1701 – get the main stream of the 17th channel

rtsp://NEC:guest@173.200.91.70:10554/Streaming/channels/1902 – get the sub stream of the 19th channel

HTTP commands to get IPC MJPEG stream

  1. Camera firmware need to be v4.1 or higher
  2. Can only stream the Sub stream via HTTP
  3. Need to change the Sub stream video encoding to MJPEG
  4. Resolution can be changed via web interface
  5. Can only connect directly to the camera with HTTP – no NVR connection

NOTE: If the HTTP port of the device is still 80 (default), then “:<HTTP port>” is not required.

HTTP without Authentication

http://<IP address of IPC>:<HTTP port>/Streaming/channels/102/httpPreview

HTTP with Authentication

http://<username>:<password>@<IP address of IPC>:<HTTP port>/Streaming/channels/102/httpPreview

Snapshot using HTTP URL

http://<IP address of IPC>:<HTTP port>/Streaming/channels/1/picture

Example:

http://192.0.0.64/Streaming/channels/102/httpPreview

http://admin:12345@192.0.0.64/Streaming/channels/102/httpPreview

http://192.0.0.64/Streaming/channels/1/picture

Setup of Video LAN Media Player

  1. Use an internet search engine to download and install the VLC Player https://www.videolan.org/vlc/

Run the VLC Media Player that you have installed on our Computer

Select “Playback” – “Play” from the Drop Down menu – Open the “Network” Tab

  1. Enter the URL of your IP Camera or NVR on your network (see proper formats above for RTSP or HTTP connections)

Example:

My Local NVR: IP Address 172.24.242.247

User Name: admin

Password: admin12345

Default Port RTSP: 554

In the Network URL I would enter to get the 8th camera main stream

rtsp://admin:admin12345@172.24.242.247:554/Streaming/channels/801

http://admin:admin12345@172.24.242.247:443/Streaming/channels/802/httpPreview

Note: Camera can only use substream and must be set for MJPEG

Note: MJPEG can not be opened by connecting to the NVR, must connect directly to the camera IP Address

Note: Get port number off of browser URL when logged into camera via link from NVR
