Streaming h.264 to a G5 panel - URI format

markhmarkh Junior MemberPosts: 10
Hi All,
I have an Avigilon h.264 camera but it requires basic HTTP auth. In VLC I can enter the URI in the form

rtsp://USERNAME:[email protected]/defaultPrimary?streamType=u

and it works a treat. The same URI format entered into TPDesign5 does not.

I can see when i telnet into the panel and use "msg on" that the panel is trying to connect by throwing away the USERNAME:PASSWORD part of the URI, but does not then respond with the auth options.

I've done a Wireshark capture of the VLC interraction, and when it gets the same response (RTSP/1.0 401 Unauthorised) it then responds with the auth options and all is good.


So what I'm really wondering if there is a different format for entering user/pass that the panel will understand and use correctly. Any ideas anyone?


Page 137 of the Modero.G5.Programming.Configuration.Guide.pdf has a disclaimer at the bottom of the page:
"NOTE: Third-party encoders and digital television devices have not been tested with ModeroX Series G5 touch panels, and are not supported by AMX."
So I am also wondering if I've been sold a lemon in this case.

any comments or help greatly appreciated :)

thanks
Mark

    How are you entering it in TPD5? In TPD5 > Panel > Resource Manager > Dynamic Images or

    TPD5 > click on the button for video fill > Button Properties > STATE > Video Fill > select "Streaming Video" and entering the URI in "Streaming Source below.

    I've never used TPD5 or this 2nd video fill method but I seem to recollect hearing something about this once upon a time.

    I decided to try via button properties and it does work, at least on my MXT-1000 G4, using TPD4.

    Older Axis Network Cams
    rtsp://user:[email protected]/mpeg4/media.amp

    rtsp://user:[email protected]/axis-media/media.amp
    

    So it does work on an axis camera using button properties Video Fill: Steaming Video and putting that URI in Streaming Source.
