Support for RTSP protocol for webcam object
« on: November 13, 2013, 02:05:32 AM »
Hi,

It would be great if you could have a video component that supports the RTSP protocol so I could give it a URL like: rtsp://10.20.55.53:554/live1.sdp
to get the live feed from a camera.

All the components now only works via http.

cheers for the great work,
Jonas

We do support RTMP ... did you try the external Video component?

Yes I tried that:

I have a URL looking like: rtsp://10.20.55.53:554/live1.sdp
When I insert this in the external video component it automatically adds http:// in front
and it fails

This is a similar problem I have with the RSS and html components. Most feeds I have start out with feed://, but the system adds http:// so the line would read http://feed://.

Hi If you are using rtsp protocol then you must be using streaming server, have you established link to this server using VLC on your computer without the signage player?
you need to configure VLC so it can play your stream first then you need to make note of the url and add it to signage studio extApp/Capture component.
once you have VLC playing your stream then you are ready to setup signage studio side.
 
Select custom and give app name= where is VLC located on your computer normally program files
Command line is where you add your url and other commands
e.g
-I dummy-quiet --mouse-hide-timeout 1 --aspect 16:9 --no-video-title-show rtsp://localhost:5544/stream

Above line is example but you need to put your own information depending on your settings.

Make sure signage controller is running for extApp/Capture component to work.

only problem is that VLC creates a very large cashe creating a delay that gets longer over time and thats not good when the stream is a live stream

I'm trying to incorporate an entrance IP camera into the signage the RTSP stream actually comes directly from the IP camera.
I have actually now made the ultimate workaround.

I have setup a new webserver that puts the RTSP stream in an Iframe and then put the html page into the Signage campaign, it does the trick, but now I have an extra server running. :-)

Hello,

I have tried what you said (running VLC and converting from RTSP to HTTP) but the problem is that in my DigitalSignage player the video is cached and is repeating the same slice like it did the first time the sequence run. Can I somehow disable caching for HTTP video stream so I can have a live Picture from IP camera on my screen?

Thank you!

Best wishes,
Marko
