AbelCam does not support rtsp at this time. However, I have never seen an IP camera that didn't support either mjpeg or a series of individual jpegs over http. It's just difficult sometimes to determine what URL to use.

thanks for the reply, was very kind, my problem is that the camera comes inside its own browser, and when I log makes me want to choose how to display image with Explorer, and whether or mozilla or RSTP, however the camera is this:

The cam looks like a Foscam clone. See if you can get http video from it using this URL:

http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/videostream.cgi?user=username&pwd=password

where "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" is the IP address of the camera, and "username" & "password" are whatever user and password you have set up in the camera. This would probably return an mjpeg stream.

That info is from Foscam, it MIGHT work with your camera.

If that does not work, the next thing to do is figure out what URL it is using to provide "jpeg mode" for mobile devices.

Another possibility is:

http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/snapshot.cgi?user=username&pwd=password

This would return a single jpeg.

For others who might read this thread some day:

Massimo sent me a private message saying that the URL above (the snapshot.cgi one) worked for his Chinese cam. I would expect it to work on many Chinese cams since most of them come from the same factory no matter what brand is on them.

I have a Sinocam / Szsinocam camera and tried many URLs but only rtsp works Sad

The camera has the following ports:
8200 = Media Port
80 = Web Port
554 = RTSP Port

I tried these URLs, none work:
http://IPADDRESS/videostream.asf?user=USERNAME&pwd=PASSWORD&resolution=32&rate=0
http://IPADDRESS/videostream.cgi?user=USERNAME&pwd=PASSWORD&resolution=32&rate=0
http://IPADDRESS/snapshot.cgi?user=USERNAME&pwd=PASSWORD

http://IPADDRESS:8200/videostream.asf?user=USERNAME&pwd=PASSWORD&resolution=32&rate=0
http://IPADDRESS:8200/videostream.cgi?user=USERNAME&pwd=PASSWORD&resolution=32&rate=0
http://IPADDRESS:8200/snapshot.cgi?user=USERNAME&pwd=PASSWORD

http://IPADDRESS:554/videostream.asf?user=USERNAME&pwd=PASSWORD&resolution=32&rate=0
http://IPADDRESS:554/videostream.cgi?user=USERNAME&pwd=PASSWORD&resolution=32&rate=0
http://IPADDRESS:554/snapshot.cgi?user=USERNAME&pwd=PASSWORD

These are ok:
rtsp://USERNAME:PASSWORD@IPADDRESS:554/ucast/11
rtsp://USERNAME:PASSWORD@IPADDRESS:554/11
rtsp://USERNAME:PASSWORD@IPADDRESS:554

Regards,

Nika.
