RLK8-810B4-A get access to the h265 stream for IPCAM-viewer

hope you are doing well.
I ve got an Foscam NVR System (2MP) and want to switch to the Reolink RLK8-810B4-A System.
Is it possible to pull the h265 stream of each 810a cam behind the NVR ?
i am using an iPad Air (installed at the hallway) with the IP-Cam-Viewer-APP ,pulling the stream of 2 foscams to show my entrance 24/7.
I am not sure if this works with the Reolink-NVR System ?
In Addition, is it possible to watch multiple cameras on Playback ?
Hi there, this NVR is a 4k version. You can view the video in the mainstream when you view one camera on the screen. But POE NVRs can only support 1-channel 8MP video playback. If it is under 8MP, you can view up to 4 cameras at the same time.
I think, I have the same question as @astrabuster and I think you did not answer his question.
The question is:
Can a camera be accessed from another computer on the network the NVR is connected to?
So the NVR accesses the cameras, records stuff and also can display the cameras.
But can cameras _additionally_ be accessed by another computer in the same network the NVR is installed in to additionally view the camera footage?
Technically: Are the cameras visible in the network the NVR is installed in (PoE Ports bridged to the Network) or are the PoE Ports of the NVR in a separate network? And if so - do the cameras support more than one concurrent login?
According to the technical specs on the reolink de site parallel logins should be possible, but the technical specifications on reolink.com lack this information.
By the way: Why do you offer an option to include links when saving posts with links is forbidden?

Finally i ve got an answer !
( bought the reolink 810 set an tried a lot of stream-pulls)
Only if a h264 cam is connected to the nvr it s possible to pull the h264 stream of 1cam , main or substream with :
Main Stream: rtsp://admin:password@ip_address:554//h264Preview_01_main
Sub Stream: rtsp://admin:password@ip_address:554//h264Preview_01_sub
If a h265 cam ( 810a ) is connceted, there is no stream ( even if it s changed to "h265Preview...")
The nvr got his own dhcp network/different ip system.
If u want to pull main or substream directly from a h265 cam you have to use a poe-switch or poe-injector and connect it to your regular network
( your router or switch).
It s still possible to assign them in the nvr !
To get the h265 stream just pull it with :
Main Stream: rtsp://admin:password@camIPAdress:554//h265Preview_01_main
Sub Stream: rtsp://admin:password@camIPAdress:554//h264Preview_01_sub
I connected all 4 cams with a 4port-poe-switch to the router and got the stream of each cam.
@mleonhardt If you want to access the camera that connects to the NVR, there are two methods to view on the other computer.
Firstly, when you connect the camera to the NVR directly, you can view the camera under the NVR on the Client on the computer remotely.
Secondly, when you connect the PoE switch and the NVR under the same router and then connect the camera to the PoE switch or NVR, you can add the camera as a standalone camera to the Client.
If you want to use the RTSP, you can look at the answer of @astrabuster
@astrabuster Sorry for not getting your point. The NVR doesn't support the H.265 RTSP now. If you want to use the H.265, you can add the camera as the standalone camera as the above second method.
Where has my reply to the 2nd post from @astrabuster gone? (Shortly after 9.9.21 15:14) Yesterday I definitely saw my post here ...
Hi @mleonhardt, I don't see your post before. You can post again.
Strange that that happened. I am quite sure to have clicked save on my post ...
OK, so here I go again:
Nice findings. This information should be in the official documentation of the NVR / cameras. Currently I only was able to find quickstart manuals which are not sufficient answering detailed questions about the products.
So the cameras on the PoE ports of the NVR are on a separate network that is not directly accessible from the network the NVR is connected to. So that cameras are not directly accessible from the outside.
But the streams of those cameras can be accessed from the outside via links on the NVR.
But currently only H264 streams of that cameras. H265 is currently not supported by the NVR (but supported by the cameras.)
But the cameras can also be attached to the NVR via the outside LAN. Then the NVR can record from the cameras _and_ the cameras are accessible to other clients on that network too - nice!
- Will there be H265 support for the NVR (16 channel version) with the current hardware revision? And if yes when will that be?
- Is the feature to also assign cameras on the outside network to the NVR an official feature? Where is it documented? (I don't want to lose that feature on a future firmware update ...)
- The "reolink de" site has some detailed specs on the 820a cameras. E.g. there is documented that the camera supports 12 simultaneous streams. That site seems to be the site of a reseller. So my question is - where can I find technical specifications of that detail on the official reolink site?
- What about my other questions posted here?
- Why is here an option to inlcude links when links are blocked when I try to save my post?
1. The NVR supports the H265 video format now. But it doesn't support H265 in RTSP. We are working on it. But there is no exact version to confirm.
2. It is in LAN when you connect the camera to the NVR.
3. This is the specification page of the camera. When you click into one camera and click the "spec", you will see the specification. https://reolink.com/product/rlc-1220a/#specifications Or you can go to our support center to search for some questions, https://support.reolink.com/hc/en-us/.
4. About the link, the site may have some security rule. You can put some safe link.
1) OK - so there is hope that it will be supported in the future without needing new hardware
2) Not clear what you wanted to say. From the informations in the internet it seems to work as I want it to. But my question was if that is an official feature of the NVR.
3) Found the information I was looking for. It was hidden behind the "more" button.
4) What exactly do you mean by "the site"?
In order to add content as a user I have to use the interface provided with the forums here. And this interface does not let me save my post if it thinks it detects a (some special?) link.
In my case I wanted to link to the specifications page I found on the reolink site with the de-TLD. (Can not post the link for that reason). Even if I wrote the words reolink and de connected with a dot and without any http or https prefix this was considered a forbidden link ... Something that should be looked into by the admistrators of this forum?
