How To Setup RTSP Streaming

Some applications or viewing tools use the RTSP protocol to pull a camera's stream. This requires a specifically formatted URL. 


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

[username] - username of the device
[password] - password of the device
[IP address] - 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 (number must be 2 characters long)
[stream] - main or sub stream (use "main" for main stream and "sub" for sub stream)

Example: rtsp://admin:12345@
