RTSP Stream URLs for NVRs (NVR)

Some applications or viewing tools use the RTSP protocol to pull a camera's stream. This requires a specifically formatted URL. The URL for each device are as follows:

 

HDCVI & NVR:

rtsp://[username]:[password]@[IPaddress]:[port]/cam/realmonitor?channel=[channel]&subtype=[stream]

Note: The bracketed items are variables which you need to input according to your setup. Explanations of each variable are given below.

[username] - username to login to the DVR or NVR
[password] - password
[IPaddress] - IP address of the device. If you are not on the same local network, this should be the external IP address of the device's network.
[port] - port number
[channel] - channel number of the stream
[stream] - view the Main or Sub stream. (main stream is 0, sub stream is 1) 

Example: rtsp://admin:[email protected]:80/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=1
