How to set up an RTSP stream for the Camius IP camera (RTSP IP camera)?
The RTSP protocol stands for Real Time Streaming Protocol. RTSP lets you view a live video stream from your camera on various devices and programs. For example, a camera feed can be pulled from an NVR to a viewing software (e.g., Blue Iris).
The RTSP stream usually works with VLC. Below is the RTSP IP camera URL format:
A: 0(Mainstream), 1(Substream), 2(Mobile Stream)
For example, rtsp://192.168.1.163:554/ch01/0
- 192.168.1.163 is the IP address
- 554 is the RTSP port
- ch01 is the channel number
- 0 is for the mainstream
The below example is based on accessing the Camius NVR using a web browser:
First, click on the Remote Setting tab, followed by IP Channels.
Click on the icon in the Edit column of the camera (channel) you need to configure the RTSP stream (Picture 1)
In the Edit Link Connection window, change the Mode from Automatic to Manual (Picture 2)
Then click on the Protocol tab to select RTSP (Picture 3)
When the RTSP protocol is selected, the prompt will show the camera’s Mainstream and Substream URLs.
Fill in the IP Camera’s RTSP address in the Mainstream and Substream URL (Picture 4). Then, click OK to save the settings.
