Zoneminder with Reolink Camera?

Hi, is anyone using Zoneminder with their Reolink cameras? I have tried to configure Zoneminder to use the RTSP stream, but I can't get it to work. The RTSP stream from the cameras is working with other software, but Zoneminder is a little bit complicated to configure. My configuration is shown in the image. Any ideas? Thanks!
How about changing the port to 8000 and try?

It looks like the problem is with Zoneminder, not with the camera. I will post again if I figure it out. Thanks!
same cant seem to get mine to work with zoneminder either
Zoneminder on Linux system currently could not support. However, reolink is working on its web login. It will support Linux, Mac and Windows system to login by HTML5 compatible web browser like IE, EDGE, CHROME, FIREFOX, SAFARI, etc.
Hope all of our customers will have better experience with reolink items.
Use source type: Ffmpeg
Use source path: rtsp://username:password@address/h264Preview_01_main
Use remote method: RTP/RTSP
Your capture width and height much match what the camera is set to output.
any news on this?
The new version which support no plugin still under testing. Will release and upload onto our website when it is done. Thanks!
You only have to use Windows once to setup the camera with your preferences. After that, zoneminder reads the camera fine.
I cannot get the actual zoneminder web interface to show the camera feed with the settings gbiggins listed above. All I get is the attached image. However, I can get the camera feed through zmninja (Zoneminder app) with the same exact settings. All zmninja does is pull the info from Zoneminder so I am not sure what is wrong with the interface. My main issue I still am working on is getting the main stream to feed smoothly. Right now it only shows maybe 1 frame every 20 seconds. If I use the sub stream it comes through just fine, but who wants to use the sub stream.
updated firmware but still cant get it to work, setup like you mentioned gbiggins ...
I got a RLC-410 working similar to gbiggins' settings above:
Source Type: ffmpeg (on first tab)
Then, on second tab:
Source Path: rtsp://YOURIPADDRESS:554/h264Preview_01_main
Remote Method: RTP/RTSP
Capture Width: Must match the setup on the camera
Capture Height: Must match the setup on the camera
I also had to lower the FPS on the camera to about 9.
If this shows green on your ZM main page but still can't see the rendering, note you may need to have Java installed on your browser machine if you are rendering with the Cambozola client.
I also had an issue with a headless CentoOS ZM install, and apparently due to memory, it wouldn't render either, so had to do a GUI installation of CentOS.
Similar to gbiggins, only some minor changes on a RLC-410
width and height as setup on your camera, i modified to 1280x720
also, lower your FPS on the camera to 9
This works for me and shows the monitor as green on the main zm page.
If it is green there, but you can't see the video, you need to check if you have java installed on the machine you are browsing from.
