IP Cam Viewer Pro --OR-- Other Suggestion for Wyze Cams (can use RTSP)

I bought IP Cam Viewer Pro because it says will work for RTSP ip cameras.  I've followed the directions multiple times and can't seem to get it to work for my Wyze cams.  I have a generic IP cam that I think was based on Wanscam (maybe, only guessing) that works fine.  But these two brand new Wyze Cams v2's I can't get them to show up.  Any ideas?  Is there another software/app/channel that would do this for me?  Please help!!!  Smiley Happy

Try posting in this thread.  The developer is pretty good about responding.

For what it's worth, I'm in the same boat you are.  I purchased IP Cam Viewer Pro for the express purpose of streaming my 4 Wyze cams thru Roku and have had no luck with the setup.  I have also edited the setup multiple times with no success.  However, I am able to get IP Cam Viewer to work perfectly with my Wyze V2 cams on my TVs with an Amazon Fire TV Stick.  It seems the Roku version of IP Cam Viewer Pro just isn't as robust or smart as the Fire TV Stick version.  Hopefully someone can figure out the flaw/gap and help up along.

Re: IP Cam Viewer Pro --OR-- Other Suggestion for Wyze Cams (can use RTSP)

For those of you who have struggled to get your Wyzecam v2 RTSP streams to work with IP Cam Viewer: I have tried to get this to work a number of times over the last couple of years and have always hit a brick wall... Took a swing at it again this weekend and failed repeatedly, then right when I was about to throw my hands up I stumbled upon the solution.  I now have a proof of concept Wyzecam v2 running the latest RTSP firmware displaying in IP Cam Viewer Pro on multiple roku devices.

The crux of the problem is that Roku doesn't support the RTSP protocol... There are a ton of attempted workarounds that failed for me, this is what worked for me, YMMV.

 

Go here:

Enable H.264/RTSP to HLS in IP Camera Viewer Pro on Roku

I didn't have a working pi available so I just built an Ubuntu server 18.04 VM, updated it and ran install.sh

 

That's it.  Hope this helps someone and a big thanks to e1ioan!
