SETTING UP AN RTSP STREAM

Introduction: This guide will explain how to set up a real-time streaming protocol. RTSP can be used in many software and applications and allows you to stream the view from a camera.

STEP 1

First, we need an URL to access the stream from our camera. The URL format is explained below: rtsp://username:password@IPADDRESS/your_camera_settings

1. After the two forward slashes, the first word will be set to the username you use to log into the camera followed by a colon. The second word will be the password you use to log into the camera.

2. Next, after the @ sign you will need to replace the words “IPADDRESS” with the IP you use to connect to your camera.

In case of dynamic IP using %public_ip% as follows rtsp://username:password@%public_ip%/your_camera_settings will allow you to automatically get your dynamic IP address even if it changes, allowing you to have a stable and continuous connection to your IP camera.

Note: %public_ip% will be replaced with your dynamic IP.

REMEMBER THAT EVERY CAMERA IS DIFFERENT AND HAVE ITS OWN PARAMETERS, this guide will only demonstrate how to view a streaming video from a camera inside a player like VLC, for the settings of your device please contact the manufacturer.

Note: to access your camera from outside we recommend to contact your system integrator/technician. Usually, the default port that should be opened in your Firewall is  the 554.

 

STEP 2

Now that we have the URL information we can test it out. For our guide, we are using VLC media player for testing purposes. Go ahead and open up VLC Media Player. Next, we will need to click Media in the upper left of the VLC window. Then select the “Open Network Stream” option to pull up another window.

STEP 3

Now we must configure the URL with our username, password, and IP address. Once you have the URL properly formatted, copy it then paste it in the window. Once you are done click play to begin playback.

With the classic view mode configuration, you immediately see the IP Camera movie.

It is possible to edit dimensions of your IP Cameras depending on your necessities.

Also, you can add as many IP Cameras as you need in the same user interface tab playing with layers.

MODAL VIEW MODE

This is just one of the visual result possibilities of the component on the EVE Remote (Map Style).

Icons can be customized depending on your necessities from symbol to color and dimension.

In this case we can see the default icon layout:
