Re: IP Camera Viewer Basic and Pro, fresh out of the oven (ONVIF, RTSP coming soon)

Did this app ever get rtsp? I’m using Wonnie products and can’t get my device to work with the app

The application supports rtsp streams, but only jpeg encoded. If your camera has only h264 streams, you'll need extra hardware to make it work, please see here: https://github.com/e1ioan/rokuphp

Also, if your camera provides mjpeg stream or a url to snapshot, you can use that without any problems.

I have BESDERSEC B07Y31474X camera.  Have it work on phone and computer.

Trying to get it working with IP Camera Viewer Pro on Roku.

Does Not support mpeg stream.

 

It is ONVIF and RTSP compatiable.

I've tried many, many setting and connection strings.  What is the best way to set it up?

Camera support sent me this:

ONVIF 2.0 Port 8899 ;RTSP Port 554 ;HTTP Port 80;Media Port 34567
 
rtsp://$(IP):$(PORT)/user=$(USER)&password=$(PWD)&channel=$(Channel)&stream=$(Stream).sdp?real_stream
Example
rtsp://10.6.10.25:554/user=admin&password=&channel=1&stream=0.sdp?real_stream

Re: IP Camera Viewer Basic and Pro, fresh out of the oven (ONVIF, RTSP coming soon)

For anyone interested, I submitted a new version of the channel, version 2.6, with RTSP bug fixes and improved image quality. Also, the new version has  HTTPS snapshot support.

Axis Companion cameras are also supported now.

Basic: https://my.roku.com/add/IPCAMVIEWBASIC

Pro: https://my.roku.com/add/IPCAMVIEWPRO

Re: IP Camera Viewer Basic and Pro, fresh out of the oven (ONVIF, RTSP coming soon)

Version 4.7 was submitted today to the Channel Store.

New in this version: Now you can backup and restore your cameras.

This feature is only available in the Pro version of the application.

Do I have to buy the Pro version again to install it on a second Roku stick?

Thanks

No, you don't have to buy pro. You can use the free version on as many Roku devices as you want. 

You want to buy pro if you want to be able to add more than one camera, if you want to have a screensaver with your camera feed, backup/restore features or, if you just want to support development for the application.

Re: IP Camera Viewer Basic and Pro, fresh out of the oven (ONVIF, RTSP coming soon)

Hi, I have a Reolink NVR (model RLN8-410-E) with 4 cameras (model RLC-420-5mp) and want to stream to my Roku.  I bought the Pro version of the app and would like to know how to configure it.  I tried several configurations using the app help section and all failed.  I appreciate the help.

The application only supports jpeg encoded streams, so make sure your cameras provide the necessary stream. You can contact the camera manufacturer to see what the URL for the mjpeg stream is. If the cameras only support h264 streams, you can use the snapshot url to get images from the cameras, or you can use the h264 stream, but this requires extra hardware, please see here: https://github.com/e1ioan/rokuphp

Sorry I can't help with support for specific cameras, I don't own any Reolink cameras.

Re: IP Camera Viewer Basic and Pro, fresh out of the oven (ONVIF, RTSP coming soon)

I have been using IP Camera Viewer - Pro for about 9 months now with my Lorex NVR.
It generally works well but whenever there is significant motion on the screen the video repeats over and over again. Like someone walking on my front walk would step 1, 2, 3 and the video would jump back to step 1, 2, 3, repeating again and again for like 10 seconds. And then the video will pick up to current, missing whatever happened for the past 10 seconds.

If I watch the video in Firefox (which can natively view the same mpeg stream URL) or the PC app provided by Lorex using the same substream at the same time, it is only IP Camera Viewer on the roku that's stuttering like this.

Any ideas what's going on here?

I never used Lorex NVR so I'm not very familiar with the system. I test my releases on several major camera brands (Axis, Dahua, Hikvision, Amcrest, D-Link, Panasonic) and I've never seen that problem and this is first time this issue was reported to me. 

Can it be that the NVR is configured to record when detecting movement? Is it possible to disable the motion detection, just for testing and then see if you have the same problem? Also, please check if the motion detection is enabled in the IP Camera Viewer.

Please let me know what you find.
