I'm new to IP cameras and the RTSP protocol. Any way to deal with video streams in Vuo via RTSP?

Hi, I have some work with IP cameras and I use some apps to capture the stream and then pass it to syphon.

There are cameras that have the option to choose between two protocols: http and rtps. There are also different codecs for streaming: MJPEG, H.264, ...

If you use the HTTP protocol and MJPEG encoding, there are two applications you can use to convert the stream to a syphon feed.

IPCAM2SYPHON

SyphonNetCamera

If you use the RTSP protocol you can use:

ManyCam (payable)

ardrone-ffmpeg

I hope it can be of help.

Best.

I was going to create a feature request for RTSP support (it's not there as of Vuo 1.2.6), but then my excellent coworker discovered that it only took a small change to get it to work. So that should be in the next major release.

In the meantime, if there's an RTSP-to-Syphon solution that works for your situation (thanks, @jandraka, for the list!), that is what I'd recommend.

I've managed to watch an example RTSP link from the web, but can't see any cameras from something like insecam. I've been tasked with setting up some screens and cameras in two places that can stream to each other, a kind of collaboration wall, how would I go about doing this?

I building trying to build my video setup with the RTSP from my Dahua Cams, but it don't seem to give any picture. VLC does ...... and also the ardrone app does work with these steams...... ( see also screenshot)

I know the Play movie rtsp does work, cause i tested it just after relaese of 2.1.7 with a foscam , which gave me video.... So i thought i'm good to go ..

Any suggestions ? Specific codecs / settings which work ?

I need it next week on a event.... so would be nice if a can get it to work.

Hello, As I can see in the screenshot the "Fire on start" node is connected to the input event of the node rather than the "Play" input. Maybe this helps. Best.

URL is displayed different in VLC display windows, but isn't...... so that's not the case.

Tried it with debug, no idea what isnt working..

Did some testing, had some issue with the foscam with higher bandwith and screen size. but not all the time. The Dahua rtsp keeps black....
