Live streaming ONVIF API ?

Postby hendry » Tue Jul 30, 2019 9:58 pm

One reason I bought an Amcrest (IP4M-1026E) is that I assumed it conformed to some standard ONVIF interface, so I could live stream to a TV whatever the camera could see.

Currently I can't view the stream without using a proprietary plugin, or am I mistaken?

I made a video about my setup btw: which reference scripts I use to massage the recorded video uploaded via local FTP server. ... pi/

It depends on what capability you have at your TV to request a stream from your camera. You could find an app or use ONVIF and/or the Amcrest API. Download the Amcrest API pdf to read about it.
If you have a Roku, try using the Roku app called IP Camera Viewer.
