How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.43 Released
Hello, I would live stream feeds of wired cameras that are attached to and NVR using a third-party tool such as Motion Eye or VLC as described here. Is that possible with Poe devices connected to NVRs? Or do I need to use a separate Poe switch to get network access to each camera?Thanks!
That depends on the model of your camera.Here is a link to guide you how to stream on VLC:https://support.reolink.com/hc/en-us/articles/360007010473-How-to-Live-View-Reolink-Cameras-via-VLC-Media-Player?source=searchHope that is helpful for you.
Hi Cynthia,This solution will not work if the cameras are connected to the NVR.Would you like to try again.
Got it sorted thanks folks! The following works through the NVR with the 5mp cameras. Not sure if it will work using the 4K ones though.rtsp://192.168.1.101:554//h264Preview_1_mainrtsp://192.168.1.101:554//h264Preview_2_mainrtsp://192.168.1.101:554//h264Preview_3_mainrtsp://192.168.1.101:554//h264Preview_4_main
Great work Daniel. I suppose it was somewhat intuitive when you think about it. The same process to pull a feed directly off a camera works to pull it off the NVR, just increment the number in the RTSP/HTTP URL to see each of the 16 cameras.In my case due to p[censored]word authentication it's;rtsp://username:p[censored]word@ip_addr_nvr:554/h264Preview_01_main... through to ...rtsp://username:p[censored]word@ip_addr_nvr:554/h264Preview_16_mainAnd for static images;http://ip_addr_nvr:80/cgi-bin/api.cgi?cmd=Snap&channel=1&user=username&p[censored]word=p[censored]word... through to ...http://ip_addr_nvr:80/cgi-bin/api.cgi?cmd=Snap&channel=16&user=username&p[censored]word=p[censored]wordJust remember to use the IP address, username and p[censored]word of the NVR and not of the cameras.It would be great if the Reolink team would update their documentation to include instructions for access cameras directly and via the NVR so others don't have to go through this.
