New Reolink Client v.8.8.5 - Auto Upgrade Client Feature!
I have an immediate need to replace 2 indoor cameras. The C1 seems like the perfect option but it doesn't seem to be available anywhere I can find. When will it be shipping? Thanks
I've been working through this myself. It appears to have nothing whatsoever to do with the cameras other than the fact that they are very high resolution and pumping a bunch of data down to the application. Most applications are not setup to receive a real-time 6Mbit (that's what you have configured, the camera can put out up to 8Mbit in a stream) RTSP video stream. Only one application that I have been able to find allows the user to configure the RTSP receive buffer and that is Genius Vision. The fact that Reolink works proves that your computer can manage it, it just needs the right software. Genius Vision requires a 100MB RTSP receive buffer per stream to manage the cameras. Most apps allocate only a few megabytes. Blue Iris is my software of choice but it won't swallow the data quickly enough unless I drop the clear stream way down in resolution and bit rate. The symptoms or lost data are blocks in the middle of the image and repeated lines down the image. If you spend 10x the money on an IP camera at the same resolution it won't work any better with your software.BTW: If your software works with the HIGH profile, use it. It compresses far better than the base profile. Jon
I have updated several of my cameras with Reolink models and am quite happy with them. I have small indoor ONVIF cameras that I can't replace with Reolink ones because they are small inconspicuous shelf standing units and Reolink doesn't seem to have anything comparable. Can the Reolink NVR handle any other ONVIF cameras? I understand there are no guarantees but I was just wondering if it is even possible. ThanksJon
Thanks. I realized that I did a poor search before and I missed the post with that info already in it. Now I have another question... I understand that the sub stream is for previews but it's highest setting is very low. I am using Blue Iris (I have multiple camera brands right now and and moving a number of them to Reolink cameras.) Blue Iris is having a hard time swallowing the high data rate from the clear stream, but dropping that steam way down reduces the resolution that I get in the Reolink client (which I want to use for real-time viewing.) I noticed that the Reolink client has a "Balanced" option. I would like to know if you can document how that stream is accessed. I'm hoping that there is a parameterized request available, but whatever it is the balanced option looks like it could work with Blue Iris based on the bandwidth that it uses when selected in the Reolink client.ThanksJon
Update: I was able to get the ONVIF support working by forcing the HTTP interaction port to 8000 from 80. I would still like to know how to get a direct connection to the lower bit rate streams though. Thanks
Can you please document the URLs for getting at the different streams? The default RTSP url seems to give the "clear" stream. I also need to access the lower resolution stream for previews.Also, Genius Vision can't seem to recognize the 410 and 411 cameras with the newest firmware as supporting ONVIF. Have you tested these cameras with Genius Vision at all (they seem to have pretty good ONVIF support)ThanksJon
