Get a camera not mounted

Post by BigChris » Sun Oct 06, 2019 7:45 pm

I have successfully integrated four different cameras so far. With my current one, a Hikam S6, I just can't do it.
In VLC I can watch the stream at this address: rtsp://

In Zoneminder I tried the following settings:

Source Type: Libvlc
Function: Monitor
Source: rtsp://

Method: Tcp, UDP, HTTP Tunnel

Unfortunately, it's not working. What can I do?

Source Type: Ffmpeg
Method: TCP

If that does not work, check the camera manufacturer's website or search the web for something other than onvif1 for that model.

Check the resolution VLC reports. Some cameras use a resolution that is different than advertised. Also, a high res can can run your server out of space in /dev/shm
