IP Camera Viewer v4.0 with RTSP/ONVIF support released

Get it here:


New features:

  • When adding cameras: ONVIF discovery of the cameras on your network

  • When adding cameras: ONVIF Auto-Config - It will try to configure your camera's substream to a format compatible with the application, checks if the camera supports PTZ and use it.

  • When adding cameras: Test Camera Config before you save it - it will show the camera stream on the Add Camera window

  • RTSP support (jpeg encoded streams - onvif compatible)

  • Fully rewritten stream handling routines, now you'll get high fps MJPEG/RTSP (2-3 times frame rate increase compared with last version)

  • Motion detection (out of beta).

Add camera
"Find" button next to the "Edit IP" will discover all ONVIF compatible cameras on your network.
"ONVIF Auto Config" button will try to configure your camera's SubStream and get the usable RTSP, Snapshot and PTZ configuration (see next screenshot).
"Test Camera Config" will show the camera stream directly on the add window so you'll know it works before you save.

ONVIF Auto Config
In this example the camera is a HIKVISION DS-... 
You are given the option to use RTSP or Snapshot URL from the camera:

Motion Detection - if enabled, you'll hear a sound any time there is motion in front of your camera

Re: IP Camera Viewer v4.0 with RTSP/ONVIF support released

I am trying to use your Roku app with a high end PTZ Optics camera that is supposedly ONVIF compliant.  The Search button does not find it.  When I enter the IP parameters myself I sill get nothing.  The camera supposedly emits an RTSP stream.  I can’t see it.  Any help would be appreciated.
