Setup IPTV / IP Camera - Existing Stream : New
IPTV / IP Camera - Stream Access Requirements
- You will need the stream address of your IP camera or IPTV channel. Insert address exactly as it works in VLC or other player (test before submitting).
- Address should start with one of these supported protocols: rtsp://, rtmp://, udp://, rtmps://, wowz://, wowzs:// or https:// if ending in m3u8 (HLS).
- For increased playback support, H264 video with AAC audio encoded streams should be configured if possible, from IP Camera / Streaming source settings.
- Depending on source encoding, streaming may require transcoding to play in different players. Without transcoding, some streams may play in Flash players but not as HTML5 HLS or MPEG-DASH or may have interruptions or missing sound. Contact Technical Support and provide exact stream address for evaluation.
- For IP cameras, you can find RTSP address in its documentation: ask the camera provider or find it online.
- Username and password of IP camera / stream needs to be specified if needed to access that stream.
- Port needs to be specified if different from default for that protocol. Non standard ports may be rejected by firewall (contact site administrator).
- If device/stream does not have a public address, your local network administrator will need to Forward Camera Port trough Router.
- If your network is not publicly accessible (your ISP did not allocate a static public IP), your local network administrator may need to setup Dynamic DNS for external access.
