Clone Cameras Don't Work

Post by MyCameras » Wed May 27, 2020 9:28 am

Hi All,

Firstly environment:
  • CentOS 8
    ZoneMinder - v1.34.14
    Running on SuperMicro server 2 cpu 128gig memory, 10tb disks
    Installed VLC: VLC media player 3.0.10 Vetinari (revision 3.0.10-0-g7f145afa84)
    ffmpeg version 4.2.2 Copyright (c) 2000-2019 the FFmpeg developers
The issue:
I have three exact same Hikvision cameras. They have the same firmware and I use the same configs on all three. ZoneMinder is up and running and I was able to add the first camera perfectly. Ffmpeg does not work as the cameras have authentication. So using libvlc via UDP. With libvlc using:
--rtsp-user=admin, --rtsp-pwd=xxxxxxx
To pass the credentials as options. I am using normal monitoring and getting 25fps (camera max supported). --- this works well.

This camera works. The other two the only difference is the IP address. I cloned the first camera and changed the IP address. They wont work. Says capturing but nothing.

The errors I see in the log are:

What I don't understand is these cameras are running same firmware same config they the same model and I used a clone of the working camera with only a IP address change to them yet it wont work.

I can connect to these with Blueiris, web interface or even my IP CAM View on mobile all at the same time.

Would really appreciate the help.

Enable onvif and do a discovery. For me worked like a charm.

Maybe you don't really have them configured the same. I see in the link mcast for transport but you might have unicast TCP on some. If you performed firmware upgrade I'm pretty sure not all of them came with same settings. In my case every camera have different software so I had to perform the upgrade.
