EZVIZ (HikVision) C6CN lower res RTSP URL

Post by jobsoftinc » Mon May 03, 2021 3:39 pm

Hi All,

Been using these cameras (13 of them) on ZM 1.34.9 for almost a year now. Lots of buffer overruns at the "normal" streaming res (1080p @ fixed 15fps). Finally got fed up and started toying around with RTSP URLs. Found a post that suggested a different URL path for HikVisions, Discovered that the following RTSP URL gets you the "SD" ("standard" res?) 768x432 @ 10fps, which might be a big help for others here tapping the seemingly fixed RTSP 1080p "HD" stream from these otherwise fairly decent, and VERY cheap wifi-based IP cameras.

rtsp://admin:<mfg_cam_passwd>@<cam_ip_addr>:554/Streaming/Channels/102

Note that the fixed manufacturer password is the "Verification Code" on the QR "label" located on the bottom of the camera itself. Also note that channel '101' is the HD stream. Too bad EZVIZ doesn't publish more details on other exposed hidden parameters (like PTZ control maybe).

Anyways, FWIW.

Mark

I meant to post the URL that led me to this discovery:

https://www.getscw.com/decoding/rtsp

They seem to have some good info for other makes too.
