Sricam SP012

Post by karaokeking » Sat May 28, 2016 12:48 pm


Just installed zoneminder and have it working with my Tevis IP Cam but having trouble with my other Chinese cam (Sricam SP012).

I have it working on my phone using "IP Cam viewer" by setting it to "Generic RTSP over UDP" "rtsp://" But for some reason I can not get it to work with zoneminder I have tried all sorts of settings I wonder if someone else has managed to get the same cam running?

I'm using ZoneMinder 1.29.0 on 14.04 and the following works for me for the SRICAM SP012 PTZ Camera.

Source Type: Remote
Maximum FPS: 15
Alarm Maximum FPS: 15

Remote Protocol: RTSP
Remote Method: RTP/Unicast
Remote Host Port: 554
Remote Host Path: /onfiv1
Target Colorspace: 24 bit color
Capture Width: 320
Capture Height: 240
Use RTSP Response Media URL: Unchecked

NOTE: Sometimes from within Firefox, this camera requires me to right-click on the video and select "Reload Image" from the context menu. Then the stream of video starts.

This camera claims to be an ONVIF-based camera. I have yet to discover a configuration that works to control the camera based on ONVIF. I have three other PTZ cameras of different brands, but they all use CGI files to control the camera, whereas this most likely doesn't. I did a port scan with NMAP and discovered ports 554 and 5000 open. All other ports were closed. This means UPnP on port 5000 (TCP) is most likely used to control the camera via the cell phone app. There is no web interface on the SR012 unlike my other three PTZ cameras. I haven't found a way to configure the camera any other way besides the mobile app.

Has anyone else in the world discovered a way to control this particular camera from ZoneMinder?
