I’ve seen quite a few posts about connecting an IP camera via rtsp stream. I’d like to use my zoom camera, but can’t get the rtsp stream to work, using various combinations of port /live, usernames and passwords. The camera works fine using direct IP access via the camera’s own software and via VLC (using rtsp rtsp://admin:email@example.com:554/11).
I’m using QGC 4.0, stream is currently set at rtsp://admin:firstname.lastname@example.org:554/11. I’ve tried setting the camera to 3 different H.264 settings (base, main and high), tried H.265. Changed the IP address multiple times, removed the password. Resource Monitor shows QGC accessing port 554 but no packets seem to be transferred (no packet loss, compared to some when VLC is running). Firewall is configured to allow QGC to access all TCP and UDP ports.
I’ve seen it said that some cameras just don’t work with QGC but I don’t want to give up that easily, I’d like to be able to use this camera as it has zoom.
All suggestions welcome !
