Connect to camera automatically without login

Postby indigojon » Mon Jun 10, 2019 10:01 am

When I log directly into the camera with its IP address, I get a great image at 1080P. But if I use Angelcam or IPcamlive, the image quality is not as good. Is there a way I could modify the http code to automatically login to the camera and bypass the login name and password screen?

I don't know of a way to do that but I was playing around with a bunch of IP camera software and I noticed that they often default to the sub-stream or for some reason start transcoding the incoming stream.

VLC offers direct stream quality through RTSP and with a little extra work you can have it start with your user and password.

"rtsp://server/video.3gp --rtsp-user=user --rtsp-pwd=password"

You won't be able to get controls working but the quality is like the original.

Good Evening indigojon,

Logging into the camera without using a username and password is not possible.

However, there are many third-party options available which make this more secure.

One of those is

Here is an article of another service to possible try along with an article for using RTSP. ... -IP-Camera ... r-via-RTSP ... -CVI-DVRs-
