How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.41 Released
I have enjoyed streaming video from my RLC cameras using VLC (Windows, Linux).The "internet" claims that 5KPlayer is "more better" than VLC, so naturally I want to compare the two.On VLC, I use this URL: rtsp://192.168.1.52:554/h264Preview_01_mainIt pops a login box for the user name and pa*sword and then streams the clear video and sound. Perfect.(I confess that I have not searched for how to stream recorded videos. That's a question for another day unless someone has already figured it out.)Alas, the same URL in 5KPlayer simply "does nothing".
Sorry that we did not test the 5Kplayer, we cannot determine whether there is a compatibility issue between the camera and then 5Kplayer.
Thanks for responding. I was hoping one of those folks who experiment with other software might have stumbled across the correct URL for 5KPlayer. The URL for VLC was posted in the forum. (There is NO WAY that I would have come up with "rtsp://192.168.1.52:554/h264Preview_01_main" on my own.)
Just in case the question comes up again...5KPlayer apparently is not as 'smart' as VLC and ONVIF Device Manager. Both of those programs attach to Reolink RLC cameras and prompt for user name and pa*sword. 5KPlayer just seems to stall.The solution is to include the user name and pa*sword as part of the rtsp connect URL, as follows:rtsp://username:pa*sword@<IP of camera>:554/h264Preview_01_mainCamera immediately begins streaming Clear Live View.Of course, this is no help for someone who wants to view older Reolink cameras with a web browser, as web browsers do not support the rtsp protocol.
Thank you for sharing the information. It would help other users who have similar issues.
